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!

Well hello there — I’m Prince, the charming gentleman waiting to rescue you from a lifetime of catlessness! I’m a big and outrageously friendly man who lived the first 6 years of my life around lots of other kitties, so I’m very social! I’m currently in the cattery at The Pixie Project, and have become kind of an uncle to the little wild kittens sharing the space with me. If I can tolerate them, I think I can handle just about anything! I’m a big cuddler and love to rub on people and purr so loud you can hear me across the room. Since I’m so social, I’d really like to have another kitty buddy around and wouldn’t want to be left alone too long. Are you in search of a royal feline friend such as myself? Come on down to Pixie to meet me! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a fee of $100.

chloe-2chloe-1Hi world! My name is Chloe and I am a sweet and affectionate yellow lab. At 9 years young, I am a healthy, well socialized lady just looking for my forever home! Aren’t I just beautiful? Can you believe both my parents were chocolate labs?! So I am super unique! I just love to cuddle after a long day of exploring. I enjoy going for my daily walks as well as playing with my puppy pals! I have been around kids my whole life and just adore being around them. They are full of snuggles and treats. My two favorite things! You too?! Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Badgley is a sweet kitty that loves people, cats and dogs! She is 10 years old but acts like a kitten as she is still very active, but of course loves her cat naps. She will talk to you if you’d like to have a conversation and she’ll cuddle you too (with an occasional love bite 😉 ).  We are looking to rehome her as she was my mother’s cat. We will charge a very nominal adoption fee to make sure she goes to a good home. We’ll also provide you with food, litter, a litter box, a bed and toys. Everyone that meets her loves her and I’m sure you will too!

img_1098Kitten season may be winding down, but we have plenty of kitties still searching for their furever homes! Just in time for Halloween, come on over to Pixie and meet our kitten misfits: Motor, Sarah, and Toast! They are all the last of their litters but get along just great. Playful and sweet, they are all awaiting your love in our cattery. Kittens 12 weeks and under must go in pairs if there is not another cat already in the home. They are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed/neutered with an adoption fee of $135 each ($243 for a pair). We have several older kittens as well that can be adopted out in singles! Come on over and fill out an application today!

Kiddo and Hawkshaw (nicknamed Toes – he has 7 toes on one paw and 6 on all the other!) are two sweet, playful kittens available for adoption. Though not from the same litter, the two quickly bonded and are a close pair.  They can be found playing together, napping together, and grooming one another. Kiddo is a very sweet, social and playful kitten. He is engaging and likes to be with people, and will purr contently if you pet him.  Toes is a little more shy than Kiddo (though Kiddo has been a great influence on him, and Toes feel very safe around his friend). Toes is sweet, but a little nervous and it will take him some time to warm up. He loves to be brushed and he loves playing with his mouse toy. This adorable pair will make great furry companions! They are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed/neutered with an adoption fee of $135 each ($243 for a pair).  They are in foster, so fill out an application online or at the shelter and we will set up a meet and greet!

Hi everyone! My name is Walter and I am a fun, outgoing 1 year old cattle dog mix. With my charming good looks and my silly personality, I am the dog who will always entertain to you, bringing a smile to your face! I am very excited to meet new people of all ages and other pups too. Even cats can join the fun! I have a great medium energy and would be a great exploring partner! Hikes up a mountain or to the nearest swimming hole for a nice cool dip or even just some fetch in the yard, I am always a happy as a clam. Don’t get me wrong, I am not active all of the time. In fact, I love watching movies on the couch with you sipping hot coco just as much! As long as I am with you, then it doesn’t matter what we do.  I am sweet, social, handsome and just the pup you have been looking for! So fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

maude-border-collie-1Hi there! My name is Maude and I am a super cute 6 month old Border Collie mix. I am always optimistic and just LOVE life and everything about it! I have a lot of energy and prefer to stay active and just love my afternoon walks with my Pixie friends. I betcha I would even be a fantastic runner to join you on your morning jog! Being a quick learner, I am sure I would exceed with flying colors in an agility class. Is playing Frisbee more your thing? I can even learn that too! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I am really looking for someone who has the time and experience to teach me a brand new back of tricks. A backyard to run around in would be nice too! Whether its my other puppy pals or my humans friends over the age of 10, I am also very affectionate and love to snuggle up after a long day of adventures.  Racing past the finish line,  I long to win the first place prize–your heart! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hi everyone! They call me Little Larry. I guess you can say I’m like a mini cattle dog mix weighing in at only 25 lbs at 11 months old. Don’t let my serious face fool you, I am quite the fun guy and have a great medium energy that keeps me active and cuddly! As a young guy, I am a very quick learner and am already crate trained! I would love to learn more though, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I enjoy my daily walks with the Pixie volunteers and already walk really well on leash! I could do without all this rain though-Ha! I enjoy playing with toys and love to play with my puppy pals I have met here. I also enjoy meeting all humans over the age of 10 and even those kitties too! Even though I am little guy, I am full of spunk with a big personality and an even bigger heart just waiting to see where my next adventure will take me. Want to come with? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
