I promise I’m not foolin’, my heart is made of pure gold! Hello everyone. My name is Pyrite and I am a 7 year old brown and white tabby and a sweet hunk of fluff! I am the chillest guy around and absolutely love hanging out with my canine friends. In fact, I used to live with some big pups back in the day. I would enjoy being the only feline in your heart though! So fill out an application and come on over to Pixie and visit me today. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $100.

Hello there, my name is Socks! My name may not be original, but I sure am! I’m a beautiful and sweet blue and white tuxedo girl with silky soft fur and a lovey-dovey purrsonality. I’ve lived with other kitties before, but am also okay as a one-and-only kitty. I’m pretty easy going and am most interested in getting love and lap time! I’ve lived inside my whole life and don’t really have any interest in going out. Besides, it’s cold outside! Are you looking for soft, warm Socks to keep you toasty this winter? Come by Pixie and let’s get acquainted! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Bunny would do very well in a quiet home, with an owner who likes to read, knit, or sits still for an hour or two daily with a very soft cat in their lap!  Bunny is the softest, most snuggly lap-cat ever.  She is very affectionate.  Bunny will literally jump into my arms to be held over my left shoulder (only the left will do), and will happily drool down my back as I hold and pet her.  It is the easiest way to brush her: she loves to be held and get brushed.  Even at 8 years old, she still loves string chasing, and will occasionally chase a laser, but is suspicious of the trick.  She does not like a  lot of noise or commotion, and she is pretty quiet herself – meeps more than meows.  She is a mostly indoor cat, but does occasionally visit my back porch to stare down the squirrels.
Please contact if you are interested in her!

“I am pretty sure there is more to life than being really really ridiculously good looking.” That’s me! Aren’t I so handsome? My name is Ben and I am a funny, goofy 1 year old Pointer mix weighing in at 51 lbs! Named after my favorite comedian actor Ben Stiller, I could entertain you all day with my comedic impressions and whimsical personality. I am very puppy like and playful with both my human friends and doggy pals as well! Cats just don’t seem to enjoy my sense of humor though, so no kitties in my home please. Because I am a bit bouncy, I would do best with kids over 10 and with someone who can teach me the basics, as PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! Though I am new to the Pacific Northwest, I am ready to go explore it and would be a great camping buddy as I enjoy silly play time in the water or even the snow. At the end of the day, I enjoy your cuddly affection and pets, as we fall asleep to some of my favorite comedies. Are you ready to laugh the night away together? Then fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hello! My name is Harriet and I am a sweet, social 4 year old min pin mix! At 20 lbs, I may seem small, but I have a big heart and an even bigger spirit! In fact, my name means “home ruler”, and I just can’t wait to sit on the throne that is my new home, owned by my adopters. Though I play the role of queen, I love all my loyal subjects equally-from other pups to kitties to those two legged friends over the age of 8! I adore the royal life of infinite treats and belly rubs, but my heart belongs to great outdoors of this beautiful Oregon kingdom. Every day I get excited to do my daily walk around the town with the Pixie volunteers and would just love to explore the forest more with my new hiking pals. But then after a long day of activity, it’s back to butt scratches and eating those yummy pig ears that adorn my great hall. Overall, I am a lovely gal full of charisma and spunk! Will you help me rule this Portlandia? I can’t do it on my own! Fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Who is a big, slobbery oaf  with a lovable personality who loves to play? That’s me-Grubber! Weighing in at around 80 pounds, I am a goofy 2 year old lab/mastiff mix with an even bigger heart. I enjoy going for my daily walks with the volunteers here at Pixie and would be a great adventure dog, as we explore and hike all over the Pacific Northwest. When we aren’t outside venturing, I adore playing inside with you-especially with my favorite toys! Slobber warning: prepare to get a little messy while I snosh on my ball or squeaker toy. Ha! Because of my size and my bounces, I would need to be in a home with kids 12 and up. But I just love romping around with my puppy pals, and don’t mind those kitties hanging around too! After a fun day of being quirky, active, and entertaining, I am ready to settle in for the night and snuggle on the couch-if I can fit! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated with an adoption fee of $300.

Hi everyone! My name is Ramsi and I am a scruffy and adorable 8 years young schnoodle weighing in around 9 lbs. How did I get my name you ask? Well it’s a funny story really. You see, I never make a peep when I am hanging in the Pixie office or in my foster’s home. But when we get in the car, I just have to tell you how to drive. Just like Gordon Ramsay yelling in the kitchen! Ha! So maybe no long road trips for me unless you enjoy my critiques. But I am such a wonderful and lovable guy. I enjoy everyone I meet including kids over the age of 8, dogs, and those kitties too! Casually, I stroll around Pixie for my daily walks with volunteers and am just so happy to be out and about with my friends. But you can tell I have a playful side and would love to zoom around the yard playing fetch. I may be older, but I still can be active and zippy! I am just a sweet and fun guy ready to bond with that special someone. Will it be you? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Gigi is a sweet, fun young kitty!  She is about nine months old and loves to play a lot but will happily lounge on the couch for hours too.  She was living outdoors with her three kittens, and now that they’ve been adopted she is so happy to get to have a bit of childhood for herself.  She is spayed, has no health issues, and has had her first round of shots.  Gigi’s such a joy to have around, she’s affectionate but independent, smart, adaptable, and has lots of spunk.  She hasn’t really become a lap cat yet but loves to be pet and sometimes sleeps at the end of the bed.  She also loves to birdwatch, roll on the rug, tackle catnip mice and stalk bugs.  This busy, cheerful girl does enjoy being an indoor/outdoor cat right now but would also adjust well to being indoor only.  If you’d like to meet Gigi or have any questions, please contact Isabel at 503-758-1615 or
