From now through the end of the year, you can make a huge difference to the animals at Pixie (and earn awesome rewards) by making a donation through the Give!Guide!






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!

Hi! My name is Ms Flossie but I’m not at all bossy. They say I’m about 13 in human years, but you couldn’t tell by looking at me. The doctor says I look young and healthy and I when had my teeth cleaned at Pixie they say my teeth are also in great shape. Though my kidneys are starting to get a little sensitive so I need to stay on moist food and grain-free diets. I would do best in a quiet home with one or more adults that I can spend my days being adorable for. I am a sweet, quiet, gentle ole girl with medium length velveteen fur that doesn’t shed much. I love snuggles and cuddling and if you wanted me to sit in your lap and make biscuits all day, I’d be happy to oblige. A couple good swipes down my back and I will bloop over and let you rub my belly for hours! I tend walk around the house quietly purring and swishing on corners. I am not much of a talker but I am a great listener. I enjoy games of chasing the mouse on a stick, rolling rattle toys, laying in rays of sunshine, and watching the birds do their bird things in the window. I love scratchy boxes, even though I have no claws which makes it doubly cute. I was declawed at a young age so I need to stay safe inside. I’m not really interested in the outside world anyway. I am great company and love to sit idly by watch you do your silly human things. I prefer mainly TJ’s kitty tuna with lots of gravy and tiny bite salmon kibbles. I also love to munch on Cat grass. I promise to snuggle with you every night, purr you sleep and let you sleep as long as I’m cuddled up near to you. My foster mom calls me Twinkle toes on account of my long haired little paws that make the best lap biscuits around. Will you be my forever Human? I’m currently living in a foster home so fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and with a recent dental and bloodwork already done for and adoption fee of $80.

Good afternoon. How do you do? My name is Miss Petunia and I am a 8 year old Schnauzer mix. Though I look part teddy bear, I assure you I am a dog through and through. But I still do appreciate the cuddles and belly rubs just the same as those stuffed animals. I am a rather kind and sweet gal whose aim is to make the world more beautiful by planting Petunias all over. After they grow and bloom, I would just love to take you on walk to show you all the beauties of my garden. I just adore my afternoon walks while meeting new people, cats, and other dog friends along the way. I sometimes still love to play with my toys after our afternoon tea. Then its back to the snuggles and a nice little nap. I am always smiling and oh so happy to be around my people. I have such a big heart and I am ready to share it with you!  Fill out an application today, so our friendship can start blooming. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Who’s ready to paaartttaay?? All paws are pointing to this guy! That’s right, my name is Conan and I am cute, adorable, and spazzy 8 month old Brittany Spaniel. Right now, I weigh about 25lbs, but I still have a little growing and filling out to do. I am just so excited and ready to do things all the time! Play with toys? Check. Go for a hike? Check. Play with my puppy pals? Double check! I am a friendly, energetic pup who needs a very active lifestyle and family with kids over 10.  In fact, I really enjoying running around and am very food motivated. Which means with some training, I could be a great running partner! I still need to learn the basics, but I am a very quick learner and am already working on “sit”. PUPPY CLASSES ARE REQUIRED FOR MY ADOPTION. Being a field spaniel, I really enjoy a lot of space to stretch my legs, so the apartment life is not for me. No kitties in my home please.  So what shall we do next? Run on the beach? Swim in the lake? Climb Mount Everest? The possibilities are endless! Fill out an application today, so we can meet and start our journey together. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $400.

Eh, it’s yo boy Frankie! The chillest dude around these parts. I am a 4 year old Terrier mix weighing in at around 24lbs. With my uber adorable face, I am a mellow guy who is engaging and very affectionate. When it’s not cuddle time, I do have a mild interest in toys, but it’s the walks that are my favorite part of the day. I love all the sites and smells. Every once in awhile a sound can be a little scary, but a few treats later and I am ready to continue with our walk. I dream of being your ultimate hiking buddy. Can you imagine all those smells?! I would be oh so happy! Plus, I am sure I would get to meet some puppy pals along the way. They are so much fun to play with! I would even enjoy having a dog savvy kitty in the home as well. At times I can be a little sensitive and would be best with kids 12 and up. But being food motivated, easily trained and full of spunk, I am ready to explore the great Pacific Northwest. With my nose to the ground, I am ready to be your exploration pal! Fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Cersei here! I am a regal queen of a kitty with beautiful “blue”/grey fur and a very loving personality. I am about 9 years old and am usually the first kitty to walk up and greet people whenever they visit the Pixie cattery! I like to rub up against their legs and say, “Pet me, please!” Though I generally live very peacefully around other kitties, I’m not a huge fan of them and would be perfectly happy as your one-and-only feline friend. I’m a queen, after all! I actually came to Pixie with my brother, Jamie, and would be fine going home with him or on my own. I am very gentle with children and have a mellow demeanor that makes me a great cat for apartment life. I do love, love, love people and would probably prefer to have a home where someone is around a lot of the time — queens need their worship and I will reward my loyal subjects with that love and affection returned ten fold! I’m in great health and the folks here at Pixie will make sure I get my teeth cleaned so my adopter won’t have to worry about that. I’m very snuggly and soft and am the perfect bed warmer for the cold winter season — won’t you come meet me? I love to make new friends! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Greetings people of Earth. You might recognize me as a cuter version of that sarcastic and lovable alien from that tv show-Alf. But most people around here just call me Alfie. I am 14 lb one year old Beagle/Corgi mix from another planet. Ok, I guess California doesn’t count as another planet, does it? Ha! I am still learning all about life and loving every minute of it. I am always ready to go go go and explore more places and things, making new friends along the way. I may not have 8 stomachs, but it sure seems like it, as I am very food motivated which makes training easy. Just like my tv counterpart, I love to sing and play instruments. It’s that part beagle in me you know. So an adult only owned home would be best for me! I have lots of energy and just adore playing with my doggy pals of all shapes and sizes. Like my namesake, I am not a big fan of cats, so no kitties in my home please.  Cute, energetic, and funny to the max, what more could you ask for? You know what they say, “Traditions are like plates, they are made to be broken.” So let’s live a life where we can always do something new and exciting! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

I am Jamie — the handsome, charming, 9-year-old all-black panther kitty you’ve been looking for! I have a great personality that is a perfect mix of curiosity, mellow-ness, and loving affection. I am very much a lap kitty and will even drool for chin scratches once I get really comfortable! I am also pretty confident and there are not very many things that make me nervous. Even though there are a lot of things going on here at the shelter, I was very comfortable right off the bat and will walk right up to new people to say hello! I do great around kids and would definitely be okay as a family pet, but I’m also pretty mellow and low-maintenance and would make a fabulous companion for a single working person or couple. I live peacefully around other kitties and am very passive. I actually came in with my sister, Cersei, but we are not bonded and could either go home as a pair or separately. The folks here at Pixie say I’m in a great health and will do a teeth cleaning for me so I’ll be all set for my new family, whenever they find me. I’m just a big, friendly, go-with-the-flow type of guy and all I need is a new home for the holidays! Won’t you stop by and say hello? I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Hi y’all! The loveable and charismatic Patty Mayonnaise here, and I just moved from Bluffington and am ready to find my new home here in the PNW! I am a 3 year old terrier/chihuahua mix weighing in at 13.5lbs. Just like my “Doug” TV show counterpart, I am a sweet and adorable lady can be a little shy around new people at first, but quickly opens up after a few tasty hotdogs-or even tangerine slices! Yep, you heard right. My fosters say that tangerines are my all time favorite snack. Once I open up, I really am a playful pup! I have a nice medium energy that will play a nice round of fetch in the yard with my favorite toys or a nice walk around the block, and then snuggle in close while we watch our favorite night time shows. I prefer my adult humans to my doggy friends and like to be the star of the show. Though I am currently in foster with a kitty, so a cat in the home is fine by me! Oh, and did I mention I love wearing my doggy outfits? Especially during this cold weather! So let’s grab our favorite sweaters and go for a nice walk today! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.
