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!

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!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
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.

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.
