THESE CATS ARE NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT! THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS. —
Odie and Stormy are buddies and it would be so great to get them a home together if possible, but it is not a deal breaker if the right homes are found for each. They’re owner died a while ago and they’ve been in foster care.

Oh hi. I’m Stormy. Some say I am of the breed: Ragdoll. As a young cat I was passed around a few times to different owners, by circumstance, and I really just want a stable, loving family to live out the rest of my days with. When I’m not sleeping in a cozy secret spot I can be found sipping the freshest of water from the kitchen sink or bathtub. Toys are fun to play with in a location where you and I can play freely with no interruptions from some others (curious dogs 😉 ). I like dogs, don’t get me wrong, we are mostly simpatico. But they can impair mobility at times. Annoying, right? I’m pretty laid back with other pets and people, but don’t like to be held much. And, I like to be near you but not on you, like Odie there. 😀

STORMY STATS:
Age: 4 years oldish
Temperament: shy, sweet, loving, not very cuddly, pretty laid back otherwise
Children: Yes, if they are respectful and give space to a shy cat
Indoor/Outdoor: both
Condition: healthy with hairball issues (needs some wet food added to diet)
Fixed: YES
Other pets: YES
Claws: YES
Shots: Is due for a standard vet visit, may need shots
* I have an adopted brother, Odie, if you’d like the whole package!
Hiya! I’m Odie. I love affection, can’t get enough. I think I’d be great with gentle, loving kids, though I don’t like to be held much. Its a little uncomfortable for me. But I will snuggle with you and sleep with you at night! In my spare time I enjoy: napping. I don’t play with toys much, I leave that to the younger more spry kitties. I tolerate dogs as long as they are chill. I’ll let them know with a swipe and a hiss if they step out of line.
ODIE STATS:
Age: 7-8 years old
Temperament: Very affectionate, sweet, cuddly, loving, talkative, laid back mostly
Children: Yes, if they are respectful and give space to a mature cat
Indoor/Outdoor: both
Condition: healthy with hairball issues (needs some wet food added to diet)
Fixed: YES
Other pets: YES
Claws: YES
Shots: Is due for a standard vet visit, may need shots
* I have an adopted brother, Stormy, if you’d like the whole package!
Please contact our foster parent if you’re interested in adopting me!

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.
