–THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT CINDY AT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS

I’m Mickey and have been told I’m a seriously awesome cat! I’m about 10 years old but have the energy of a 3 year old (love to play and eat catnip). I’m very social, love to be pet, and really shed very little. I have been checked out by a vet and he also said I look like I’m 3 years old and in perfect health. (have vet records and can transfer the microchip registration). I’m litter box trained, and my ideal home would have a cat door. I really love to hang out with people–when people come to the house I don’t run and hide.

I have been my current home about seven months. I was adopted from an elderly woman who had to give up my friend a dog (a Boxer) and me due to her experiencing sudden health problems. I have a lot of confidence and definitely am the Alpha to the dog at my current home which is stressing him out too much it seems (he’s a beta, sensitive 10 year old Boston Terrier).

Mickey would be a great pet for someone without a dog or a dog who has plenty of confidence. We aren’t sure how Mickey would do with other cats. Happy to answer any questions you might have. We want him to find a great home. Please contact us at cindy_bay_area@hotmail.com and we live in NE Portland.

What’s warm and sweet and sugary all over? Me — I’m Funnel Cake! I am an extremely friendly and social 3-year-old lady with so much personality to go around! Even though I’m new to the shelter, I’m not shy about asking for attention. Anyone who will offer me love will be welcomed by me rolling over on my back and showing you my belly –it means, “I love you! Pet me! Pet me!” I’m so soft and adorable that everyone who meets me falls in love right away. No wonder they named me after a delicious dessert! So far, I’m not a huge fan of other cats but I am living peacefully with them in the Pixie cattery. I am super playful though — the staff catch me playing by myself all the time! Are you interested in meeting me? I’d love to make your day a little sweeter, so come by Pixie today! I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated for an adoption fee of $100.

Hey everyone! My name is April Ludgate and I am a beautiful 5 month old Pit/Shepherd mix. Not only do I have a funny and big personality like my TV counterpart, but I am also going to be very big in size too, with my parent’s weighing 70-80lbs. I am just growing up so fast!  I am very ambitious and am ready to take on the world and learn all about it.  Puppy classes and basic obedience would be great for me, as I am very smart and already know some basics like “sit” and am already crate trained (I call it City Hall-HA!). Being from a rural area, I would love to stick to my roots and be in a home outside the city with lots of yard to run around in. Since I am so young, I would love having another confident male dog to show me the ropes! Although the April on TV is sarcastic and serious, I am the complete opposite and can be entertaining, but cuddly as well. In fact, I love snuggles! Though I do great with my resident kids, since I will need to have all the focus on me for a little bit while I go through training and puppy classes, I would do best in an adult only home for now. I am too interested in those kitties as well, so no cats in my home please. I am strong lady with passion and drive to be the best  I can be. With my training, I hope to go from intern to running the show!

My family wants what is best for me and to set me up for success in my new home! Thus, they would like to have you have a meet n greet with me, your family, and  your current pup! If you are interested in setting up a meeting, please contact Lauren at pagelaur@gmail.com! I come to you with my initial vaccinations with a re-homing fee of $150.

Hi everyone! My name is Leslie Knope and I am a beautiful 5 month old Pit/Shepherd mix. Not only do I have a energetic and big personality like my TV counterpart, but I am also going to be very big in size too, with my parent’s weighing 70-80lbs. I am just growing up so fast!  I am very ambitious and am ready to take on the world and learn all about it.  Puppy classes and basic obedience would be great for me, as I am very smart and already know some basics like “sit” and am already crate trained (I call it City Hall)! Being from a rural area, I would love to stick to my roots and be in a home outside the city with lots of yard to run around in. Since I am so young, I wouldn’t mind having another confident male dog to show me the ropes! I am  funny and independent with a love for waffles and other tasty treats. I like having things to do and would love for someone to teach me some nose work or agility, since I just love working my mind. Though I do great with my resident kids, since I will need to have all the focus on me for a little bit while I go through training and puppy classes, I would do best in an adult only home for now. I am too interested in those kitties as well, so no cats in my home please. I am a strong woman and even have aspirations to become the first doggy mayor of my city! I like to dream big!

My family wants what is best for me and to set me up for success in my new home! Thus, they would like to have you have a meet n greet with me, your family, and  your current pup!

The force is strong with this one! Hello everyone! My name Kenobi and I am a playful, energetic 1 year old shepherd mix weighing in around 50lbs.  I am still a young, active guy that is just bouncy and fun! With all this energy, I would be a great hiking adventure dog, as we see all the wonders of the galaxy. Though I have the force, I am still learning how to use and will need someone willing to show me the basics, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! Because of my puppy bounces and jumps, I would need to be in home without kids or cats, and with a lot of space or a yard to run around in! I do enjoy playing jedi games with my puppy pals and would be ok with another confident pup that wants to play all the time like I do! I am just eagerly awaiting to start my next adventure. Will there be light sabers? Ewoks? Droids? I don’t know, but let’s find out! I have been searching across all the planets & moons just to find you! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

-THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT! THIS IS A COURTESY POST; PLEASE CONTACT JAMIE AT THE NUMBER BELOW FOR DETAILS-

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 mysweetbaby.je@gmail.com I can’t wait to meet you and find the perfect home!

Hi! I’m Autumn! I am about six months old and love to play, eat treats and talk, talk, talk! I was rescued as a young kitten and lived in a foster home for a few months where I learned that people are not so scary after all. Who knew?! With yummy food, treats and lots of patience, I will warm right up to you and be your best friend. I would love to go to a home that has another confident and laid back cat who will be my friend and cuddle buddy and help me come even more out of my shell. I’m pretty curious about dogs, but I might take a bit to figure that out. I’m ready to get cozy by the fire, how about you? I am currently living at the shelter, so come visit me today!  I come to you spayed, vaccinated and microchipped with an adoption fee of $100.

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.
