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!

Lula 1 2

Hi I’m Lula. Do I have something on my face? I’ve been turning heads all over town, followed by people running through traffic to say hello. I really don’t know why… I’m a sweet girl, 4 months old, Pit bull/Boxer mix. I have lots of friends dogs, cats, people, chew toys. I love them all so much. I’m very smart and a quick learner. I learn something new everyday! I love to learn so it’s important to me that I stay enrolled in my puppy classes. It’d be fun to go for a walk someone time. The weathers been gorgeous. Shall we? Stop by the Pixie Project to meet me. I come spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Fill out an application at to set a date. Adoption fee $250

Nuddles 1

Hey it’s Nuddles. I’m a 2 year old 10 lb yorkie mix. Nuddles rhymes with cuddles, huddles, and puddles all of these things I adore. I can be a bit shy though so it would be better if I didn’t cuddle, huddle, or puddle with other dogs though.  I’m a real sweet gal. I come spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Muddle it over if you’d  like to meet me. Be sure to fill out an application at before you come in. Adoption fee $250. Let’s have a cuddle puddle!

Meet Binky. Her “mom” has moved to assisted living situation and cannot bring Binky with her. Binky has lived in the same apartment with since she was adopted as a kitten 13 years ago. She has never been outside. She has no known health problems. She is shy and takes a little while to warm up to people, but once she does, she is very loving. She is a good cat, always using the litter box and scratching post. Even though she is 13 years old, she still loves to play with her toys.
