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 everyone! My name is Sheena and I am beautiful 8 year old black domestic short hair cat. I am just a sweetheart looking for a lap to snuggle on! I am little shy in new situations, but with a few extra pets, I come out of my shell  right away with lots of purrs to affirm I am happy! I am with other cats and dogs if they aren’t too rambunctious, as well as older cat-savvy children.  Don’t you want to be my best friend?! Then fill out an application today and come on down to Pixie to visit me today! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $80.

Hi all! My name is Midas and the legends are true-everything I touch turns to gold! Would you just look at my adorable smile and soulful eyes?! I am a 7 year old pitbull mix with heart a gold and a sweet, sensitive personality.  I’m a bit shy at first, but boy if you throw a ball, I will be your best friend for life! Under unfortunate circumstances for my previous owner,  he had to bring me here to Pixie and it was the hardest thing we both had to do. We didn’t want to leave each other and I gripped so hard to floor as he was leaving. But thanks to my friends at Pixie, they have helped me come out of my shell and settle in nicely! I even became the staff favorite in no time.  Since I am a big guy, I need to be in a home with kids over the age of 6 and not cats. I love playing with my new doggy pals though!  Did I mention I would LOVE a big back yard? Because I just adore hanging out in the great outdoors! You can even sometimes see me rollin down the way on a golf cart, as I soak up the sun! Also, because of certain rental breed restrictions, I need my future adopters to own their home. Do you want all the gold and riches in life? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet and I can show you how wealthy you can really be with just my love! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250. Have a home and interested in fostering me? Then email Pixie today at!

Hi there! My name is Bevvy and I am an energetic 2 year old Lab mix with a big heart! When I am not demanding lots of attention and love, I enjoy running around the play area while playing a nice round of fetch. Boy, do I just love to play and go for nice long walks! They are my  two favorite activities. Since I am very bouncy with lots of wiggles, I need to be in a home without kids or cats. But boy do I absolutely LOVE playing with my doggy pals! It’s my favorite thing to do, besides a nice walk outside of course. I am a fast learner and so eager to please! I have even been known to wrap my paw around your leg to give you a hug! I’m just a fun girl looking for an active home that will help me shed some of this energy. Lots of space and yard would be even better! If I sound like your perfect adventure pal, then fill out an application today so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi there! That handsome fellow in the top picture is me, Vincent! Me and my sis Cali are both 6 years old and just 2 peas in a pod! I just never want to be without her! Just doing my brotherly duties, you know?  So we are a bonded pair that love lots of pets and cuddles. We enjoy hanging with our other feline friends here at the Pixie cattery too! We may be in our secret snuggle spots, but as soon as you walk in, we rush up to you demanding attention and lots of love. She is the peanut butter to my jelly! We are just missing the bread. Will that be you?! Fill out an application today and come on down to Pixie to visit us today! We come to you vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and micro-chipped with a total adoption fee of $180.

Hello there! My name is Duke and I am an adorable one year old Chihuahua mix. I may only weigh 17 pounds, but man do I have a BIG heart! I just love to be loved! The city is so new and scary to me and I would do best in a quieter environment and away from all the hustle and bustle of downtown. Oh and somewhere near lots of grass too! For I just love rolling around in it! It my favorite thing to do, besides getting all of your love of course. I cannot wait to be touched! So much so that as soon as you stop petting me, I will worm my way right into your arms again! I enjoy everyone I meet, including other dogs, cats, and kids too! Care to roll in the hay with me? Then fill out an application today and we can meet! I come to you neutered,vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Good afternoon! My name is Chloe and I am a sophisticated and very sweet 9 year old Shepherd/ Lab mix. I am an older lady who loves walks in the great outdoors as I have spent most of my life outside. Thus, I am not used to all this city life and I would enjoy a nice quiet home where we can have tea parties and discuss what flowers to plant in our garden! I don’t mind having another dog around, but am a bit of a flirt and would rather be with a nice fellow than a bunch of ladies. I would need to be in a home with older kids and no cats. I maybe a little shy at first, but with a few treats and some patience, I will quickly warm up to you! Care to join me for some tea? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi everyone! My name is Buster and I am just handsome 7.5 month old 30 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. Since I am still a young lad, I will need someone who is confident and  has the time and patience to work on the training basics, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION.  Because of my young wiggles, I need to be in a home with kids ages 10 and up and no cats. But I enjoy playing with my new dog pals here at Pixie, but my play style can be a bit confusing to other dogs, so another confident dog in the household that likes to play the same way I do would be just fine! I do have some social sensitivities that require me to be in a quiet low-key home that is owned by my adopters. A big backyard would be even better!! 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.

Hi everyone! My name is Dani California and I am a cute and affectionate 2 year old Chihuahua mix. I have had rough past where I came from in California, but have quite the survivor story! I am recovering remarkably well and nothing can bring me down! I am fun and playful, but also enjoy some nice snuggle time as well. Even though I am a tad shy when in a new surrounding, I have learned to trust people again and know now that I will always be safe from harm. I love playing with my new doggy pals here at Pixie! I am ok with kids and those furry cats as well. I do need a surgery on one of my legs, but with Pixie helping by covering the fees and getting me all patched up, I will be on the road to recovery in no time!  Do you want to add a little spunk in your life? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an application fee of $250. I
