Kiddo and Hawkshaw (nicknamed Toes – he has 7 toes on one paw and 6 on all the other!) are two sweet, playful kittens available for adoption. Though not from the same litter, the two quickly bonded and are a close pair.  They can be found playing together, napping together, and grooming one another. Kiddo is a very sweet, social and playful kitten. He is engaging and likes to be with people, and will purr contently if you pet him.  Toes is a little more shy than Kiddo (though Kiddo has been a great influence on him, and Toes feel very safe around his friend). Toes is sweet, but a little nervous and it will take him some time to warm up. He loves to be brushed and he loves playing with his mouse toy. This adorable pair will make great furry companions! They are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed/neutered with an adoption fee of $135 each ($243 for a pair).  They are in foster, so fill out an application online or at the shelter and we will set up a meet and greet!

Hey everyone,
I’m Cobweb, a nine-week old Tortie calico. If I’m not working on my soccer skills or chasing around toilet paper rolls at 90 mph, I’m probably lounging or napping, preferably in your lap. My foster mom works from home so I spend most of my day cuddling next to her computer or propped up on her shoulder, reading over her work to make sure there aren’t any typos. I’m a total love bug that would do best in a house without other cats (if you only have one lap, I’m going to need to be on it). I like dishwashers (seriously, don’t leave it open when you’re unloading because it’s my favorite jungle gym), birdwatching and cuddling up for a movie. I am in a foster home right now, so contact Pixie today to meet me! or 503-542-3432

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!
