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!

Ohh Hello! Fancy meeting you here! It’s me, Pepper! I am a stunningly silky soft Dachshund/Chihuahua mix with just the sweetest heart and demeanor of any pup you’d hope to meet. I am good with other animals but would do best in a home with older children because of my sensitive nature. I come spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. I hear Valentine’s day is just around the corner… but why wait? Let’s fall in love now! Just fill out an application at to meet me :)

“I got a Dollar.. I got a Dollar… I got a Dollar hey hey hey hey..!” That’s the (Little Rascals) song youu could be singing if you just met me! It is sure to be love at first sight. I am a 2 year old Terrier mix, and just about as light and small and pocket sized as a dollar at just 7 lbs (because of my size, I’d do best in a home without small children). I am quite the charmer with my happy smiley face and do well with other animals to boot! I come neutered, microchipped and current on all vaccines and my adoption fee is $250. Just fill out an application at so we can set up a meet!
