Welcome to the Pixie Project! We are a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue located in the heart of Portland. We are here to make animal adoption and rescue a fun, family friendly and positive experience. The small but dedicated staff here at the Pixie Project are committed to the art of match making between pet and person and take a hands on personal approach to each and every adoption.

We are so committed to helping those great homes in search of the perfect rescue dog that many times our available animals don’t even make it up on the website because as soon as they come in we know just who would love them!

We ask that all those looking for animals honor the process and the that it might take a bit of time to find that perfect animal but it’s well worth it.

PLEASE DON’T BE DISCOURAGED if you don’t see a dog or cat that fits what you hope to find. Just come on down and fill out an application and talk with us today!

Precious 1

Howdy friends!  My name is Precious and I’m a 3 year old Black Lab/Rottie mix.  Weighing in at about 100 lbs I’m a hefty girl, but it all comes from my giant heart!  I am super loving (and lovable) and make human friends very easily.  I tend to relate better with humans, they do give out cheese after all, so other dogs aren’t really my jam.  I don’t dislike them, some even smell OK, but given the choice I’d much rather cozy up to my person to read a story.  I’m a pretty chill girl and don’t require a lot of constant activity; I’m proud of my couch potato status! Do you want to be potatoes together?  Fill out an application at so we can schedule a meet and greet!  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Kobe 1

Hi there!  My name is Kobe and I am a beautiful 3 year old Golden Retriever mix who is just the sweetest! I am great with people and do well with other dogs too.  I can be a bit sensitive, so a quieter home would be my ideal.  That’s not to say I’m boring though!  I love to play and have just the right energy for folks who like to run and hike! A home where we can explore your neighborhood in the morning and chew on our favorite treats in the evening would be perfect.   I am a little guy, about 50 lbs, perfect for traveling. :)  Am I the pooch for you?  Fill out an application at so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.

Daria 1

Aloha!  My name is Daria and I’m a darling 3 year old Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix fresh off the island of Maui. I know, I know, people think it’s a tropical paradise and why would I ever want to leave the warm wind and sandy beaches?  Well it’s simple, my perfect family isn’t on that island!  I know I’m going to find them right here in Portland. So far it’s a beautiful place, I didn’t know leaves had so many colors! I’m really looking forward to spending time with my new folks going on walks and visiting all the different coffee shops. I’m hoping to have a canine buddy to pal around with too, you know, to show me the ropes from a doggy perspective. I can get a little nervous on my own, so a canine sibling would be the best!  I am great with all people and with my spunky personality all people think I’m great too!  So what do you say?  Want to show this Hawaiian what it’s like to be a Pacific North Westerner?  Fill out an application at so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.
