Best of Portland for FBThank You! Thank You! Thank You!
We’re beyond thrilled to have been voted Willamette Week’s Best Non-Profit! Thank you for your support, Portland!






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!

Darcelle_9675

Hola! My name is Darcelle and I am a one-year-old sweet little black kitty looking for a home of my own! I was found with a litter of kittens, and since I was a teen mom, I will probably remain a petite kitty for the rest of my life. Now that I’m done being a mother and have gotten plenty of R&R at the shelter, I’m ready to give my love to a new human family. I’m a very mellow and quiet kitty who absolutely adores to be held. I’m pretty easy-going, so I’d probably be okay with kids and other cats as long as we were properly introduced. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $100.  Fill out an application or stop by the shelter and meet me — I promise you’ll fall in love!

Alia is an 8 year old sweet kitty.  She enjoys playing with humans and especially loves string play. Alia loves to meet new people.  She would do best in a home with lots of people. She gets along with other cats,  but doesn’t seem to care much about them.  She would do okay with a calm submissive cat,  but is easily annoyed by a rambunctious dominant cat.  She often won’t share in toy play with another cat present. She tolerates dogs,  but may swat at them if they get too close. Her favorite things are catnip, laying in the sun, getting her face scratched(she occasionally drools a little), and chasing string. She enjoys her water out of a fountain,  and loves an outdoor enclosure(catio) to hang out in. Alia is good at learning where she is allowed to be and is very obedient for a cat. She will even walk on a leash, but at her own pace, naturally.  She is microchipped and spayed. Asking for a $100 donation to the Pixie Project upon adoption. I really want to find her the best home possible. Please be willing to tell me a little about yourselves and what you’re looking for in a cat.  
If interested, please contact Ryan:

Cinnamon

-THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT ANN AT THE NUMBER BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION-

Hello. My name is Cinnamon and I’m a beautiful 3- year- old Tortie. I’m spayed,
microchipped, declawed, and I just had my yearly checkup. My vet says I passed
with flying colors. She even had the audacity to give me a vaccination so I would
be current on all my shots. I’m very friendly and would love to be on your lap.
My owner says my one big flaw is that I’m too rough with her other cat which is
much smaller than I am. She thinks I would do well being an only cat so that I
could soak up all the attention. Also, I would prefer being indoors only.
If you would like to meet me, please reply to Ann at shandynduchess@gmail.com

WilburWilma

 

GOOOO Team!!! We’re Wilbur and Wilma, and we’re in it to win it! We love being active, but turn into cuddle puddles when hugged (we purr on contact too!) We’re practicing our couch vault routines and perfecting our kitten tackles for the big games this fall. Can we be your buddies when you watch the game at home? Wilbur is outgoing, playful, and cuddly when he’s not at practice. Wilma is a little more quiet, but once you get her going, she will wow you with her routines on the playfield and her purrs once you pull her in for a hug. They are about 3 months old, neutered/spayed/vaccinated/microchipped and ready to start training at your house today!

Gracie
-THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT JESSICA AT THE NUMBER BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION-
Gracie is 5 years old, healthy, spayed and very sweet. She is very small and not of average size. She loves her belly scratched and rubbed oddly enough and licks you like crazy when cuddling. We have had Gracie since she was 8 weeks old. She doesn’t care for dogs but tolerates them. She can warm up to cats if they give her some space at first. She currently lives with 1 small dog that she avoids  like the plague and 1 older male cat that she sadly adores. She is very attached to our older male cat and loves to cuddle with him. The reason we are rehoming her is because she needs a home with no children, a calmer environment with less activity. I have 2 young toddlers that she has never warmed up to and is terrified of. She will hide all day until they are in bed. She refuses to come out for food, water or the cat box during the day because of the higher activity in the home. I am a stay at home mom and my children are home all day. Sometimes we won’t see her for 3 days at a time because she is so scared of the children. This is not a good environment for her to be in nor is it any life for her to hide constantly. Please help us find a calmer home where she isn’t in fear and doesn’t have to hide constantly! She is the sweetest cat and deserves more than we are able to provide.
Please help us spread the word and find a home for her.
Thank you!
Jessica Acosta

Zeus-TX-1

Hi! My name is Zeus or as some people around Pixie call me “Derp”! I tend to get my lips caught on my teeth a lot, so my funny faces are what got me the nickname. Did I mention I was funny? Because I think I am hilarious! I am just here to entertain the world and get lots of belly rubs along the way! I am a sweet and very affectionate pit bull who would just love to play with you! I mostly enjoy a good squeaker toy and lots of ball, but a nice long walk outside would be just great too!  I get along great with other dogs, but I sometimes don’t know my own size when I am wrestling about and would do best with another dog my size. But boy do I love to play with them! Cats seem ok too. I need to be in a home with kids 12 or older and due to certain breed rental restrictions, I would need my future adopters to own their home. Which is just fine by me, because I would love a nice yard to run around in. Do you have room in your heart for this Derpy face? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Ollie-aka-Oliver-Border-Collie-Lab

Hello everyone! My name is Ollie and I am just the most handsome 3.5 year old Border Collie/Lab you have ever seen! I am quite the gentleman too. I love everyone I meet including kids, dogs, and even those furry felines! I am a very active guy looking for someone who can keep up with my energetic lifestyle. I even go on 4 mile runs everyday with my foster mom! I would be the perfect camping companion and would just love to jump in the car for a nice weekend hiking trip to the lake. But after a good day of exercise I enjoy snuggles, cuddles, and LOTS of belly rubs. Will you run the extra mile to get to me??  Fill out an application today, so we can meet and run marathons together! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
