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!

Hello Hello! How do you do? My name is Nikki and it is a pleasure to meet you. As you can tell by my size, I am a 7 month old Great Dane who still has a little growing to do. I can be shy at first, but once I warm up I will lean in to get lots of back pats and love. You see, I am still a little nervous here at the shelter and the city is a little much, so I am looking for some rest and relaxation in a foster home! That way, I have a quiet environment to really open up and blossom into my full potential. I met other doggies here at the shelter and was very polite and I bet if there was a younger dog in the home, I would be down for some play time for sure! They might even help me to build my confidence too! I even stayed clear of the office kitty and could be with one too. Did I mention I absolutely LOVE fetch? You have to make sure you find a ball big enough though! My foster home should be an owned home in a quieter neighborhood with kids over 13. Are you ready to relax  and play together? Available for foster or adoption, fill out an application and email for more details!

“Oh my darling, Clementine!” Hi there. My name is Clementine, but the Pixie crew call me Clem for short. I am a sweet black lab/hound mix at approximately 13 years old. But don’t let my age fool you, I am a very spunky lady! In fact, I love my daily walks and get very excited to meet new people and other dogs. So another mellow pup in the home would be just fine! But I really just enjoy being around my people that most and am really needing to relax in an owned home with older kids over 12. When I am not being active and playful, I am back to curling up near the heater while a take a nice warm, relaxing nap. I am a sweet, happy lady who loves my snuggles and treats and play time too! Am I your darling Clementine? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an up to date dental and an adoption fee of $300.

Hola! Me llamo Pablo and I am a 3 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix looking for my bandito of doggy friends to go on our next adventure together! Being from the South, this big city is all new to me, but I love being outside and with a some leash training, I could get used to daily walks. Especially with my doggy sidekicks by my side! Though I can be a bit shy at first with new people, with a few treats and a few minutes, I will be on your lap eagerly awaiting your pets and affection. But my favorite part of the day and what I enjoy the most is hanging around my dog pals! It really gives me the boost of confidence that I need. I tend to stay clear of the foster’s cat, so a kitty in the home would be just fine too. Since I can be a little shy, I would do best in low traffic adult only home owned by my adopters. I am blossom just ready to bloom with a new band of furry friends at my side and the comfort of your nice warm lap at the end of an active day. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

 Need a little spice in your life?! How about you just add a little Pepper? Hey, that’s me! At 15 years old, just like those yummy jalapenos, I get spicier and yummier with time. I am a simple guy who the finer things in life: mangoes, sleeping, and belly rubs. In fact, I just discovered what the human bed is like at my foster’s house and boy, what a game changer! This is typically where you can find me: flipped on my back, tongue hanging out, and snoozing the day away under the darkness and warmth of the blankets. I do still get the occasionally zoomies! Those 6.5 minutes take it out of me for the day and its back to snuggles. I am pretty indifferent to other animals in the home so another chill cat or mellow pup would be fine by me. Since I am in retirement, I would love a nice quiet adult only home. Hilarious, cuddly, and so darn cute- a little dash of me is sure to liven up your life! Want to give it a try? Fill out an application today. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, neutered, and up to date dental with an adoption fee of $200.

Hello hello! How do you do? My name is Dunbar and I am just the pup for you! At 3 years old and 60lbs, I am a cattledog/pit mix whose love knows no bounds. I am a very very clever girl whose tricks and good manners will make you head whirl. Because I am such a delight, I know all the basics and I do them just right! I really enjoy my daily walks, and want to greet everyone as we make our way around the blocks. Kids over 12 would be just fine, full of treats and pets would be even more divine! My favorite toy would have to be, a jolly ball almost as big as me! After a good ten minutes of chasing fun, ball time is over and I am all done. Then it’s back to cuddling and loafing around, and winning the all time “best dog” crown. I like to play with my doggies pals too and an older male pup to keep me company should join my crew! Overall I am good at matching other doggies playstyles, and when we play, it’s all around smiles. No kitties in my home please! I do have a very under control autoimmune disease, so ask the Pixie girls for more details please! I like to be your sidekick and follow you around the home. I would also love an owned home with a yard to roam. Playful, fun, and full of heart, fill out an application to give this a start! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Vroom Vroom!! Get your engines started and get ready to go-with me as your co-driver of course. My name is Hemi and I am an adorable 5 year old Chihuahua weighing in at 9lbs. You see, I am from Texas where we just love our NASCAR.  After a slight mishap on the racetrack, Pixie took me in and got me all fixed up, and now I am feeling good! I still have just the same amount of horsepower as before, but I do now have some incontinence issues that require me to wear a little doggy diaper. But there is only one requirement- it has to match our driving uniforms of course! I still love to wrestle with my smaller doggy friends like never before! I even don’t mind being around those kitties. I am even quite the climber and make my up to my favorite spot on the cat tree. Since I can be a little shy with new people, I would need to be in an owned home with no kids. Though I can be a bit slow to warm up, with a few yummy hotdogs and some patience, I quickly become your new lap snuggling partner! And then it’s back to winning the race and your heart! So strap in and fill out an application today and we can get the wheels turning, and set us off on another adventure. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi!  My name is Relish and you guessed it-I am the perfect yummy addition to well, anything! Not to mention, I am one hot dog. Ha! Get it? I am 2 year old Doxie/Terrier mix whose funny antics are sure to make you smile. Though I was a little shy in the beginning with new people, I have really made a ton of progress with the help of a few doggy massages and cuddles from the Pixie volunteers! Now I am a bit more eager to meet new people. I am still figuring out this toy thing and it’s pretty cute. Maybe another doggy companion could help show me this “fetch” I keep hearing about? I can sometimes be a fickle pickle and really enjoy those lady canine friends my size the most! I would need to be in a lower traffic area in home with kids over 13. I am a classic doxie in that I express myself through my voice, so an OBEDIENCE CLASS IS MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! No kitties in my home please. So tonight when you are setting the table, don’t forget the most important part-the Relish! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I relish the fact that you can’t say no to this cute face! I come to you neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.
