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!

Boo! Did I scare you? My name is Boo and I’m anything but scary, though I’d be the purrfect addition to your Halloween holiday! I’m just a 6-month-old kitten boy with lots of spunk and a big personality. I’m very confident and playful, and I love to be snuggled. I’m SO confident, in fact, that I can be a little overwhelming to other cats. I am great around dogs, however, and just LOVE people! Are you looking for a single kitten buddy to liven up your life? Come by the Pixie Project to meet me! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a fee of $100.

bentley-poodle-pic-1img_20160929_114552Why hello! My name is Bentley and I am a sweet and utterly adorable 4 year old mini poodle mix. Weighing in at only 12 lbs, I may be small, but I am spunky and can sure still have a lot of fun, running around playing fetch. It’s my favorite game!! When I am all wore out for a long day of play, I love to curl up in your lap for a nice nap as we watch our favorite shows on TV. I put a smile on everyone’s face that I meet, as they do to me too! I’m always grinning with excitement to see you. I am very affectionate and cuddly, and really just want a quiet home without kids or other dogs, so I can be the star of your show! Speaking of movies, did I mention I am a big time movie star? In my next film, I play a quirky and loveable football star who gets to score the final touchdown, winning the game and thus your heart!!

The Greytrixie-bell-rf_9959

Have you ever seen a more striking bonded pair of beautiful grey kitties? The Grey and his sister Trixie Bell are a wonderful yin and yang — the best of both worlds! The Grey is a male short-haired kitty who’s confident and outgoing personality is purrfectly balanced out by his sweet and bashful sister, Trixie Bell. Though she’s a little shy at first, she opens up quickly and will even drool when she’s being loved on! Especially with her brother by her side! Interested in meeting these two best friends? Stop by the shelter and fall in love! They are 8 years old and come to you fixed, vaccinated, microchipped (and with recent dentals already done!) for an adoption fee of $180.

Hey everyone! My name is Finch and I am a gorgeous 2 year old, 45lb Staffy mix. As you can see, I am not only handsome, but am smart too! I know some basic commands like sit and with a few treats and your help, I can learn even more! I love to go for my afternoon walks and even went on a special hike with a Pixie staff member to Sauvie Island! We had a blast and it made me realize that I would just love to be an active adventure pup. Swimming holes, hiking up mountains, running through the forest trails-you name it! After a long day of discovery, I would enjoy coming home to a quiet environment owned by my potential adopters, and snuggle with my human friends ages 10 and up. I enjoy playing with my pup pals and I would especially love a girl dog companion. No cats for me please! Did I mention I love tug? It’s my favorite game! I am a total sweetheart with an active soul looking for that special place to call home. Will it be yours? Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hi everyone! My name is Buster and I am just handsome 10 month old 35 lb terrier mix looking for some love! My hobbies include playing ball, playing with squeaker toys, and most of all-playing on your heartstrings when I snuggle up next to you for some cuddle time. My foster family has been really great at teaching me the basics and I have flourished in basic obedience. I am still up for learning some more though, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION.  I am so happy and eager to hang out with my human pals 10 and up. But no cats allowed in this clubhouse! I enjoy playing with my new dog pals here at Pixie! I am especially a lady’s man and would love to have another confident gal pal in the house! Since I am active guy, I would really enjoy having a lot of space and a yard to stretch out my legs in with a few games of fetch. I am a sweet and affectionate with a great energy and I would adore being your active hiking pal! If you love to play as much as I do, but also love some snuggle time on the side, then fill out an application today so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Odie and Stormy are buddies and it would be so great to get them a home together if possible, but it is not a deal breaker if the right homes are found for each. They’re owner died a while ago and they’ve been in foster care.

Oh hi. I’m Stormy. Some say I am of the breed: Ragdoll. As a young cat I was passed around a few times to different owners, by circumstance, and I really just want a stable, loving family to live out the rest of my days with. When I’m not sleeping in a cozy secret spot I can be found sipping the freshest of water from the kitchen sink or bathtub. Toys are fun to play with in a location where you and I can play freely with no interruptions from some others (curious dogs 😉 ). I like dogs, don’t get me wrong, we are mostly simpatico. But they can impair mobility at times. Annoying, right? I’m pretty laid back with other pets and people, but don’t like to be held much. And, I like to be near you but not on you, like Odie there. 😀

Age: 4 years oldish
Temperament: shy, sweet, loving, not very cuddly, pretty laid back otherwise
Children: Yes, if they are respectful and give space to a shy cat
Indoor/Outdoor: both
Condition: healthy with hairball issues (needs some wet food added to diet)
Fixed: YES
Other pets: YES
Claws: YES
Shots: Is due for a standard vet visit, may need shots
* I have an adopted brother, Odie, if you’d like the whole package!
Hiya! I’m Odie. I love affection, can’t get enough. I think I’d be great with gentle, loving kids, though I don’t like to be held much. Its a little uncomfortable for me. But I will snuggle with you and sleep with you at night! In my spare time I enjoy: napping. I don’t play with toys much, I leave that to the younger more spry kitties. I tolerate dogs as long as they are chill. I’ll let them know with a swipe and a hiss if they step out of line.
Age: 7-8 years old
Temperament: Very affectionate, sweet, cuddly, loving, talkative, laid back mostly
Children: Yes, if they are respectful and give space to a mature cat
Indoor/Outdoor: both
Condition: healthy with hairball issues (needs some wet food added to diet)
Fixed: YES
Other pets: YES
Claws: YES
Shots: Is due for a standard vet visit, may need shots
* I have an adopted brother, Stormy, if you’d like the whole package!
Please contact our foster parent if you’re interested in adopting me!
