Milo and Boo are brother and sister, picked from a litter of 4 for their overwhelming cuteness. I raised them from kittens, and loved them to bits for over 11 years–it is with a very heavy heart that I search for a new home for my babies. Chronic health issues and an ongoing divorce leave me unable to provide them with enough love, care, and attention, and it’s starting to take its toll on them. They get along most of the time and will sometimes sleep by each other, or pile together into someone’s lap. They love going outdoors, and will often spend a lot of the day outside–unless it’s raining or cold. They’re both microchipped, vaccinated, and healthy.  I would love to see them go to the same home but am most concerned with each of them finding a loving forever home that can provide the attention and time they deserve.

Milo can be a bit standoffish and occasionally a bully to his sister, that’s really just because he’s scared of most things and doesn’t want to show it. Once he figures out that he’s safe and warms up to you, he loves snuggling in your lap and being pet profusely. He loves to play, and will chase toys all over the house like a nutcase. His favorite game is Milo in the Middle: two people throw a toy over or around him and he tries to smack it out of the air, often with an acrobatic flourish. He also enjoys riding on people’s shoulders–just mind the claws.

Boo loves being pet, and will make sure you know that very quickly. Her favorite thing in the world is to be brushed–she finds it very offensive if you try to brush your own hair, and will try to grab your hand and make it brush her. She likes to play, but only on her terms–which usually means running laps around the house for a few minutes and then collapsing. She will happily sleep on you if you let her–just make sure you don’t try to move. She’s good with just about anybody, and only dislikes other cats if they get in her face or steal her food.

They are both loveable and unique and I think they will flourish in the right indoor/outdoor home.  I will provide carriers, toys, several months’ food, and cat furniture (if desired), and am available to assist in making this transition as easy as possible for them and you.

In addition to providing amazing adoption services, The Pixie Project runs a low-cost veterinary clinic. The Scott Wainner Pixie Care Clinic offers low income and homeless pet owners access to vital veterinary care.

Keeping Pets and People Together!

Over the last year, the Pixie Project has increased the number of surgeries performed by more than 5 times. A skilled team of high-volume veterinarians and vet techs can now perform twenty surgeries during our once-a-week surgery day. These surgeries are a combination of spay/neuter and emergency services, including dental extractions, amputations, mass removals, and other life-saving surgeries.

Our goal is not only to prevent overpopulation through easy access to spay/neuter surgeries, but to keep beloved pets in their existing homes. When pet owners fall on hard times (including, in many cases, seniors living on social security) they may not be able to afford a necessary surgery at a traditional vet, forcing them to surrender their beloved companion to already over-full shelters or consider euthanasia. Many of these animals are seniors themselves who have very limited adoption opportunities. Pixie is able to help keep these owners and pets together by performing affordable surgeries and assisting with medications.

The Pixie Project is a nonprofit animal rescue and low-cost veterinary clinic serving the Portland area. We focus on providing family-friendly, personalized pet adoption, as well as operating a clinic that provides affordable veterinary assistance and spay/neuter surgery. We are located directly across the street from the convention center at 510 NE MLK BLVD.

Where our animals come from

The Pixie Project ‘s adoptable animals come from a variety of places but the majority are from surrounding over-crowded county shelters and rescues located in more rural areas of Oregon.  As many of these areas are not served by a local shelter we provide an urban outlet where the animals can have maximum visibility and exposure to potential adopters.  Animals that come to our rescue also have access to veterinary and training support to meet any and all needs.

Our adoption philosophy

The Pixie Project focuses on finding life-long matches between pet and adopter and for that reason our adoption process is a bit more in depth than some other shelters. We appreciate the opportunity to sit down and talk with any person or family looking to adopt a new pet so we can best help them find an animal that suites their home and lifestyle.  We have a variety of animals of all ages, sizes and breeds and so if you are considering adding a pet to your home please start the process by filling out an application!  Once that’s complete, we’ll make an appointment with you to make sure that you get the personalized attention and service you and your new pet deserve.
