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!

Sassy and Energetic — Winifred is a wonderful sweet and entertaining young female kitty. Winnie has been very busy raising her kittens and also took on the important role of surrogate mom for a second litter. She is finally done with mom duties and ready to be pampered in her own forever home. Winnie loves to be near people and likes to be right in the middle of whatever is going on in the house — she’s a great supervisor! Winnie is a bit of a chatterbox and is constantly chittering to her kittens, birds in the window and the other kitties and people in the house.  When she’s not playing she will settle in quietly beside you to watch TV or just enjoy some quite time together. Winnie has a great purr and really loves to be scratched on her head and ears. She has a lot of energy and would do well with other active cats or in a household where she can run and play. She has previously lived with other cats peacefully. She is one year old and comes to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $100.

happy-puppy-pic“Because I’m Happy!!” Oh. Hi there. You just caught me singing my favorite tune that was named after me! My name is Happy and I am an utterly adorable 6 month old lab mix weighing in at 25lbs. I am a short stack pup, meaning I have got short legs and a big lab body. It is oh so adorable! I am new to the big city and well, life in general. But as my name implies, I am happy and ready to learn all there is about the world. Can you teach me? PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I am fun and energetic and enjoy meeting new puppy pals, cats, and human over the age of 12! Do you know what happiness brings to you? It’s me! So fill out an application and we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Well hi there — I’m Polly! I’m a beautiful and unique 9-year-old orange female kitty with super soft and luxurious fur. Did you know only 2% of all orange kitties are female? I guess that makes me special! Not only that, but I’m extremely friendly and loving — especially when I see a brush! My coat is pretty low-maintenance and brushing is a great way for us to bond. I lived with another kitty for a long time, so I’m pretty sure I’d make another lonely feline a nice companion, but I would be totally happy as an only kitty as well. Want to fill your home with someone special? I think we’re meant to be! Come by Pixie today to meet me! I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated for a $100 adoption fee.

Chewy is an 11 year old, 50 pound, neutered male Pit Bull whose family loves him dearly but sadly, can no longer keep him. Chewy acts younger than his age and does very well with other dogs. He has lived with dogs, children and cats (though isn’t good with all cats), loves the water and loves to play fetch. He’s passed two temperament tests and is super sweet, loving boy. He rides well in the car, knows sits on cue and loves to snuggle in bed with you. Chewy is up to date on vaccines, has no health issues and would make a wonderful companion.

If you are interested in adopting Chewie, please contact Sherri at 503-341-8013 or at

flo-1Why hello! My name is Flo. I am a 2 year old, 42lb Shar-Pei mix who is always on the go! Looking for new adventures is my thing. You never know what fun a new path might bring! I am very active, bouncy and fun. With a little endurance training, I could even join you on your morning run! With other pups I do like to play, especially with a confident male dog to lead the way. Because I am such a wiggly pup, I need to be in a home with no cats, and kids 13 and up! I am just so happy, quirky, and unique, not just in personality but also physique. So fill out an application today and then we can meet and play! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
