The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue located in the heart of Portland, Oregon.

At Pixie, we make animal adoption and rescue a fun, family friendly, and positive experience. Our dedicated staff focuses on finding life-long matches between pet and adopter and takes a hands-on, personal approach to each and every adoption.

Pixie is committed to keeping pets healthy, happy, and in their homes for life. Our on-site clinic offers low-income and homeless pet owners access to vital veterinary care and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, keeping pets out of shelters and saving lives.

Our philosophy at Pixie is simple and unique: find the perfect pet for each person or family. At Pixie we’re not about getting animals out the door, we’re about getting pets into lifetime homes. Sometimes the “right” pet is waiting for you, and other times you may have to search for a while before your canine or feline soul-mate arrives. We promise, it will be worth the wait!

Ready to meet your match? Visit our adoptions page to view cats and dogs ready for a new home!

Odie and Stormy are buddies and it would be so great to get them a home together if possible, but it is not a deal breaker if the right homes are found for each. They’re owner died a while ago and they’ve been in foster care.

Oh hi. I’m Stormy. Some say I am of the breed: Ragdoll. As a young cat I was passed around a few times to different owners, by circumstance, and I really just want a stable, loving family to live out the rest of my days with. When I’m not sleeping in a cozy secret spot I can be found sipping the freshest of water from the kitchen sink or bathtub. Toys are fun to play with in a location where you and I can play freely with no interruptions from some others (curious dogs 😉 ). I like dogs, don’t get me wrong, we are mostly simpatico. But they can impair mobility at times. Annoying, right? I’m pretty laid back with other pets and people, but don’t like to be held much. And, I like to be near you but not on you, like Odie there. 😀

Age: 4 years oldish
Temperament: shy, sweet, loving, not very cuddly, pretty laid back otherwise
Children: Yes, if they are respectful and give space to a shy cat
Indoor/Outdoor: both
Condition: healthy with hairball issues (needs some wet food added to diet)
Fixed: YES
Other pets: YES
Claws: YES
Shots: Is due for a standard vet visit, may need shots
* I have an adopted brother, Odie, if you’d like the whole package!
Hiya! I’m Odie. I love affection, can’t get enough. I think I’d be great with gentle, loving kids, though I don’t like to be held much. Its a little uncomfortable for me. But I will snuggle with you and sleep with you at night! In my spare time I enjoy: napping. I don’t play with toys much, I leave that to the younger more spry kitties. I tolerate dogs as long as they are chill. I’ll let them know with a swipe and a hiss if they step out of line.
Age: 7-8 years old
Temperament: Very affectionate, sweet, cuddly, loving, talkative, laid back mostly
Children: Yes, if they are respectful and give space to a mature cat
Indoor/Outdoor: both
Condition: healthy with hairball issues (needs some wet food added to diet)
Fixed: YES
Other pets: YES
Claws: YES
Shots: Is due for a standard vet visit, may need shots
* I have an adopted brother, Stormy, if you’d like the whole package!
Please contact our foster parent if you’re interested in adopting me!

fullsizerender-3Bon Jour! My name is Pierre and I am the most handsome 7 year old, 21 lb Pug/Terrier mix you have ever met! I am fun, loveable, and affectionate with a cute under bite face too. I enjoy being around people of all ages and I especially love to hang out and play with kids! I grew up with them all my life and they know just how to have fun and be cuddly. Just what I like! I like playing with other pups at times, especially the calmer ones like me, as puppy energy is just a little too overwhelming. Cats can join the party too! I am very smart and am a quick learner, especially with some special cheese and yummy baguettes as my reward! They say that Paris holds the key to your heart, but I must disagree–I think it’s ME! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.  Chao!

Hi, my name is Ranger.  I am 16 years old, if you can believe that!   I have been with the same family all 16 years and they adopted me from a feral cat rescue program.  They have to leave the country for work and they are VERY concerned that I get lots of care and attention in my last few years.  Adopting me would definitely be an act of love!  I am pretty healthy for an old guy, but get stressed easily, so a quiet home would be best.  I am up-to-date with all shots and vet appointments.  If you are interested please contact Sharon at or 503-740-5962.

darwin-1Hi there! My name is Darwin and I am a handsome 1 year old, 45 lb Ridgeback mix! Just like the scientist for which I am named, I am inquisitive and always on the look out for new discoveries! I have a great medium energy and would love to go for daily walks or have some ball time in the yard! I am very affectionate and would love to curl on the couch with you after a long day of discovery. I am still getting used to the city life and would enjoy a low key atmosphere with kids over the age of 14, and lots of space in a home owned by my adopters. My foster mom says I am doing great with their cat! Dogs are fun too and I would prefer to be with one as chill as me, as dog parks and puppy energy can be a little overwhelming for me. Overall, I am a handsome, fun, and inquisitive guy ready to learn more about the world! Are you ready to discover how much your world would be better with me in it?! Then fill out an application, so we can meet and see how my cute face is all the evidence you need! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Gloria 2

Gloria5-16_1It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s me, Gloria the Magnificent! Just spend a few moments with me and I will fly right into your heart. I am a 6 year old bulldog/pit bull mix who’s tough exterior masks my BIG heart and all I really want is someone to sit back, relax, and cuddle with! I am a rock star in my play groups with my dog pals and I love people of all ages! No cats in my home though please! And do you know what I would love more than anything? To be with someone in a low key rural environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and to romp around with some doggy pals! Due to rental property breed restrictions, I will require a home that is owned by my new adopters! So come one, come all and meet this cute pit-o-ppotamus! But first, fill out an adoption application so we can set a time to meet! I come to you fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Whose cute, snuggly, and happy as can be? It’s me, Bailee! I am a 1 year old min pin mix who may be small, but I have a giant heart! I am just so joyful and excited to meet new people and go for a stroll in the neighborhood. In fact, I get so excited that I need to say hi to everyone I see. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I am always smiling as I come across new friends either humans over the age of 8 or those four legged dogs and cats! Always playful and always charismatic, I can change any dull, boring day into one filled with sunshine and happiness! Fill out an application today, so you can set up a meet to see me and I will turn that frown upside down! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

tallulah-1-1Hi everyone! My name is Tallulah and I am a sweet, adorable 8 month old 45 lb Cattle Dog/Shar Pei mix. I am a little bit shy, but with the help of the Pixie crew, I have been coming out of my shell more each day! I am playful pup, especially when you bring out the toys! I love them all. Being part cattle dog, I am a very quick learner and am really fun to train, as I will need to learn the basics! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! At 8 months young, I am still a pup and would be best in a home with kids 12 and up and no cats. Since I am a bit shy still, I would do best with a confident male pup to show me the ropes and have fun! I am just a sweet, affectionate and smart gal looking for the home of my dreams. Will it be yours? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with am adoption fee of $300.
