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!

Molly 4

Good golly, Miss Molly! Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. I’m the super sweet 9 year old Beagle looking for a new forever home. I have recently been spending my days at the Pixie Project, but I grew up with a family so I know my table manners and am potty trained. I’m very social and I’ve made a lot of new friends here. If you already have a dog, you should know that I do best with larger breeds. I can be a bit sensitive at times but I like to think that makes me all the sweeter. I just need someone to love. I would fit right in with a family looking for a nice girl to cozy up to at the end of the day. Let me be that girl for you.

Fill out an application to meet me at I’m spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. Thanks and see you soon! Adoption fee $180

In high school I was nominated class clown. Hahaha. Can you believe it? I guess I’m pretty silly. Now that I’m a grown man of 9 years I still love to make people laugh. I may be a miniature pincher in my senior years but boy do I’ve got a lot of energy. You can often find me palling around with my friends. I’m super social, affectionate and playful. Ok, ok I got a joke for you. What do you get when you cross a dog with a phone? A Golden Reciever!!! Hahahaha I really crack myself up sometimes. If you’d like to meet me and have a laugh fill out an application at I’m fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. My adoption fee is $100. Let’s giggle! Haha

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.
