Oh hi! My name is Rufus and I am a scruffy, lovable Lhasa mix. At 8 years young, I am still quite spunky and do like my daily walks outside. I can’t see very well though and do tend to bump into things, but with you by my side, I am happy and confident you will lead the way! I do have some eye drops that I will need to keep on doing for awhile. I wasn’t a big fan at first, but they make me feel better-plus, the treats make it all totally worth it! I seem to be indifferent to other dogs and cats. I would do best in an adult only owned home with not a lot of stairs to navigate. Just a quiet place to retire, run around the yard, and get lots of cuddles from my favorite people. Sound like your ideal time too? Then fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! Up for adoption or foster, I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi!  My name is Relish and you guessed it-I am the perfect yummy addition to well, anything! Not to mention, I am one hot dog. Ha! Get it? I am 2 year old Doxie/Terrier mix whose funny antics are sure to make you smile. Though I was a little shy in the beginning with new people, I have really made a ton of progress with the help of a few doggy massages and cuddles from the Pixie volunteers! Now I am a bit more eager to meet new people. I am still figuring out this toy thing and it’s pretty cute. Maybe another doggy companion could help show me this “fetch” I keep hearing about? I can sometimes be a fickle pickle and really enjoy those lady canine friends my size the most! I would need to be in a lower traffic area in home with kids over 13. I am a classic doxie in that I express myself through my voice, so an OBEDIENCE CLASS IS MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! No kitties in my home please. So tonight when you are setting the table, don’t forget the most important part-the Relish! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I relish the fact that you can’t say no to this cute face! I come to you neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Howdy! My name is Beau and the one with her tongue sticking out is my silly sister Belle. We are two chihuahuas looking for our forever homes together. At 12 years old, we are at the retirement age and looking for a nice quiet home to finally relax in, play some Bingo or Shuffleboard and get some yummy afternoon snacks! I can be a little bit shy at first, but once my sister takes the lead, she gives me a confidence boost and I am excited to meet you. We have spent many years surrounded by other animals, but we are ready to vacation and just have the spotlight be on us, so an adult only owned home without other dogs or cats is needed. We both came in rough shape but Pixie got us all better and we even are getting our dentals! Whether we are in a foster or our permanent home, we are ready for lots of attention and cuddles, while we make you laugh with our hilarious antics. We even still wrestle each other sometimes! She really is the best sister one could ask for. So fill out an application today and we can start our couch potato lifestyle together! Available for foster or adoption, we come with vaccines, micro-chips, spay & neuter, and dentals with an adoption fee of $300.

Hi there, I am Timmy! And the one beside me there is my bro Tommy. We are super handsome 13 year old Poodles looking for a quiet foster home to settle into, so we can have some rest and relaxation and really have time to come out of our shells. We are very sweet and social and just need some rest from the shelter environment preferably in an owned home. Are you ready for a spa day with us? If interested in fostering us, please fill out a foster application and email info@pixieproject.org today!

Hello everyone! My name is Callie and I am an adorable 2 year old big earred gal who is super snuggly. But I am a little shy at first and having a hard time in the busy shelter life. So that is why I am asking for a nice quiet foster home to get some rest and relaxation, and allow some time to really come out of my shell. For right now, I am looking for an adult only home with either no pets or a mellow dog or cat would be great! What do you say? Can I have a nice spa day at your place? Up for adoption or foster, fill out an application today, so we can meet! Email info@pixieproject.org for more details.

Thank you for your interest in fostering a Pixie Pet! Fostering a pet is a deeply rewarding experience and it is one of the most direct ways to make a lasting difference in the lives of animals. The reasons that a particular animal may need foster care vary greatly. Some just need a quiet and peaceful place to recover from a spay or neuter surgery, some may be overwhelmed or scared by a shelter environment and others may be in need of additional medical or behavioral support best found in a home.  Whatever the reason, it is important to know that every animal that we can place in foster care opens up a spot in our shelter for another animal awaiting intake. This means that by opening up your home to a foster pet in need you not only that help that animal but others not yet in the safety of our adoption program.

The Pixie Project staff will always do our best to match the right foster animal with the right foster home. In order for us to do this successfully it is important that we have all the necessary information regarding your home and family.  Please consider the following questions when filling out our foster application:

1) Are all members of your home in agreement about the decision to foster a pet?  This includes housemates, spouses, family members and anyone else who would share responsibility or interaction with the animal in your home. 

2) How will your current pets react to a new pet entering the home? A normal adjustment period is always expected but we never want the addition of a foster animal to cause extreme stress or unhappiness on a resident pet.

3) Do you have the time? While many Pixie foster pets may be older, totally trained and require little more than a cozy place to await their new forever home, others might have medical or training needs that require a bit more time and energy on the part of the foster home. It is very important to clearly and honestly communicate your schedule, comfort level, and realistic expectations of what time and energy you have to offer a foster animal.  This will help us to ensure your foster experience is rewarding and enjoyable!

Once you have considered the questions above the next step is to fill our foster parent application.  If you are considering fostering either a dog or a cat please fill out both forms as each animal has a specific set of needs.

When the application has been completed submit it to the Pixie Project either via email, fax or in person at which point we will schedule a meeting for you and one of our staff members to get you ready for a foster pet.

Thank you for opening your heart and your home to a Pixie Pet in need and we look forward to working with you to help these wonderful animals find their forever homes!
