Hello there! I am an approximately 4 year old Pit Hound mix and I am so happy to meet you with a wagging tail and TONS of kisses. I love people and other dogs! In fact, I do very much love playing with other dogs and would love to have a confident brother my size or bigger to romp around with like I have here right now. But because I like playing and chasing with those furry felines, I would need to be in a home without any kitties. I do also absolutely adore children. I have two of them right now!  I am tolerant, loyal, eager to please, and smart. Speaking of smart…  my 9 year old girl loves to teach me tricks. I am such a fast learner that she taught me how to sit, shake, high 5, sit pretty, sit pretty and high 5 AT THE SAME TIME, and I am learning how to roll over too! I learned all this the first week I was here! And as an added bonus, I am already crate and potty trained too!

A lot of things are new to me like car rides, walking on a leash, and busy streets. I am working really hard on all of these and doing really well but I think the city life would be a bit much for me. I would love to be able to live on a farm like the one here or a smaller rural area with a really big fenced yard since I do love to run and play. Since I still have more to learn to be the absolute best I can be, my current mom really wants me to be able to go to some training classes with my new family.  She wants the best for me so bad that she says that she will refund $100 of my adoption fee if you show her the certificate that I completed training classes with you. I think it would be so much fun!

I love my warm bed in the house with my family and I have my own pillow that I absolutely love too. I really love snuggling on the couch and watching TV. I want to be with you whenever I can. I don’t want to be left home alone all the time either. I am definitely an INSIDE ONLY kind of gal that loves to be spoiled and smothered with affection. Literally, bring it on!

Even though my family knew right away after bringing me home that I wasn’t going to be able to stay here forever because of the kitties, they decided to foster me and make sure that I was all recovered medically since I had some skin irritation in the beginning, and also got some much needed training on how to be even more awesome than I already was! They want to make sure that they help me find the best home ever since they know I really deserve it. They really love me so much and wish I could stay. I will get to bring my really expensive shampoo, ear cleaner, my monthly Interceptor Plus wormer/heartworm prevention and Nexgard flea prevention with me. As of right now I still have 5 months’ worth left! All of this with a $250 adoption fee. (And after we do some training classes we get $100 back you can use to go towards the crate I will need, soft bed and toys) And you get ME!

If you just know you can love me as much as my peeps that are loving me now do, and that you can continue to take care of me like they have, please call or text Jamie at 503-999-5884 or email her at I can’t wait to meet you and find the perfect home!

Nutmeg rf_5211Paprika rf_5216Paprika and Nutmeg rf_5246

Paprika and Nutmeg are waiting to spice up your life! They are a gorgeous mom & daughter duo who came to Pixie after their owner could no longer care for them. Nutmeg is a short-haired, 3-year-old, one-eyed girl who is incredibly sweet and loves lap time! We aren’t sure how or why she lost her eye, but after a look-over from our vet, it looks like she doesn’t need any future medical attention for it — it just makes her that much more special! Paprika is a medium-haired, 2-year-old tortie who has been with her mother Nutmeg since she was born. She is extremely playful and will quickly get into any toy you want to throw her way! Both kitties are very fond of human attention and of each other — they are often found grooming each other and cuddled up together for nap time. We would love to see them go home together and feel they’d do great in almost any type of home. Are you looking for a darling bonded pair of beautiful girls? Then head to PetCo Unleashed on NW 23rd and Burnside to meet these two gems! They are spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with a combined adoption fee of $180.

My name is Goldie — after the gorgeous and talented Goldie Hawn, no doubt! I have a few talents of my own, you know. My best talent is snuggling up in your lap and making you fall in love! I’m a sweet and mellow 5-year-old girl with so much love to give. Although I was just a little shy when I first came into the shelter, I’ve adjusted really quickly and now I’m always eager to meet new people who stop by to give me scratches and pets. When someone comes up to meet me, I’ll look up at them with my gorgeous golden eyes and give a cute little “Meow”. I don’t even seem to mind the kids and dogs who walk by me every day! I have lived around other cats in the past, and probably could be okay around them again, however my favorite thing is to nap on a human lap and I think a mellow indoor home would be ideal for me. Are you interested in a gorgeous star like me? Stop by Pixie to say hello today! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

My name is Ally Mae — I’m a beautiful, young, and spunky girl with lots of personality to go around! At three and a half years old, I’ve still got a lot of playful energy left and I’m extremely curious and confident. I get very excited when people come up to meet me, and will give cute little chirps and head butts to everyone I see! I spent a little time in the cattery with some other playful kitties, but I wasn’t really into it — I’m more of a people person and would just love a home of my own. Are you interested in a pretty kitty like me? Come down to Pixie to meet me! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Who’s this cute little kitty with big eyes and tiny folded paws? Well, that’s me — Noel! I’m an adorable little 3 & 1/2 year old girl who was abandoned in a box on Christmas Eve. Luckily, a very nice person found me and brought me to Pixie, and now I’m safe, warm, and ready to fall in love! I definitely had a home before I came here, because I came in very healthy and extraordinarily sweet. I absolutely love cuddles and will stare up at you with my big round eyes and ask for chin rubs and lap time. I am not a big fan of other cats and dogs may be too much for me, however I have a sugary-sweet disposition and would do great in a loving home with adults and respectful children alike. Are you looking for a cute little kitty like me? Come down to The Pixie Project to meet me! I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated for an adoption fee of $100.

Hello there! My name is Fix and I’m a 10 year old Norwich terrier mix with quite a personality. I’m great with cats and I’ll run around for hours with other dogs in the park. I do get pretty anxious when I’m left alone though, so a home with other dogs, cats, and/or people around I can be around would be wonderful. I’m super happy leaning up against you while you watch movies, playing fetch, or running alongside someone out for the morning run. I’m vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered. Interested in adopting me? Email Derek at

Why hello! Do I put a smile on your face? Because you sure do to me!  My name is Peggy and I am a 1.5 year old cocker spaniel weighing in at 21 lbs . I am a very happy and excitable lady and I love to meet new people! Though I can be shy at times, I warm up quickly with a treat and a belly rub. Because I can be socially sensitive, I would need to be in a quiet owned home with a mellow family, with kids over the age of 10. I don’t mind having another fellow pup around to play with, especially if they are my size are smaller. I am little too interested in kitties, so no cats in my home please! I am just a playful gal that enjoys being by your side whether it’s snuggling on the couch or hanging out in the yard. Sound like your ideal day too?! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

binx-rf_3930 binx_5932-1

Hi there! My name is Binx! I am a friendly young boy with plush, soft, all-black fur that is looking for a new family to spend the rest of my life with! At 1 & 1/2 years old, I’m still a young guy and I’ve got lots of play and spunk left in me. In my previous home, I was allowed to go outdoors, so it’s likely I’d do best in a home where I could go in and out. I also lived with another kitty and we got along great. My outgoing and confident personality makes me think I’d do great in a home with cats, dogs, or kids — I’d be an awesome family cat! I’m just a cool cat that can’t wait to meet you — so what are you waiting for? I’m currently living at PetCo on SE 122nd & Division, so come say hi! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.
