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!

Goffy 2Goffy 1

What’s up gals and dudes! Goffy here, makin my debut on the adoption scene fully stoked to make your life even more amazing. Just imagine being met with this big ol goofy Goffy grin each day. I’m the kind of guy who is ALWAYS happy to see you and will never turn down a good belly rub or scratch behind the ears or most especially the opportunity to make you smile just as big as me. I am a 2 year old Pit Bull who is just as much of a goober as I am stud muffin– the perfect balance if you ask me. I come microchipped, neutered and current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. If you suspect we could have as much fun together as I KNOW we will have, go ahead and fill out an application at so we can make a time to hang out and get to know each other. I’ll be smiling and waiting and smiling til you walk through those doors, so please come through soon before these sweet cheeks cramp up!

Hey there buddy! It’s me, Buddy! Wanna be buddies? Perfect because Buddy is my name and bein your buddy is my game. I am a peppy little fellow who really likes treats and walks belly rubs and cuddles and hanging out in the park and watching movies and all other buddy-oriented activities. I think what I excel at the most is smiling (example above) so, if you’re into that sort of thing I am probably the Buddy you are looking for. I am a 5 year old American Eskimo with the softest fluffiest fur, and I do well with cats and I am really especially great with other dogs! I come microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. Fill out an application at to meet me!

Tad 2

I don’t love talking about myself but I’ll tell you a Tad about me! I’m a 1 1/2  year old Chihuahua mix. A Tad of a lover, a Tad adorable and a Tad of a comedian. When I say Tad I really mean A LOT. I have a lot of love and affection to go around. To be honest I am a Tad shy with young kids so a home with older children would be best for me. I’d love to meet you! Fill out an application to meet me at I come neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. See you soon! Adoption fee $250
