Hi! My name is Louis, but everyone just calls me Louie. I am a cute and quirky 2 year old chihuahua mix weighing in at just around 7lbs. You see, I am a little bit of shy guy with my human pals, but a pretty confident guy with my doggy friends. And being so new to this loud and scary city, I have a hard time getting used to all the traffic. That is why I am looking for a foster home! Because of my sensitivities, I need someone who has patience and who can provide me with some confidence building training to help me be the happiest little guy I can be! I need to be in a quiet owned home, with both low foot and car traffic with another confident dog buddy and no kids or cats.  I just know I will blossom into this spunky and confident guy in no time! Available for adoption and foster, I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300. Fill out an application today or email Pixie for information on fostering me!

My name is Marky Mark and I am looking for my new family to be my funky bunch! I am a 4 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at around 8lbs. I traveled all the way from LA to retire here in the beautiful Pacific North West. I am a very social, outgoing guy who loves meeting all people, dogs and those kitties too. I love to play with my squeaker toys and after a nice play session, I am ready to snuggle in your lap! I do have a genetic disease that affects my back legs so they aren’t quite as strong as they should be. I am getting all fixed up by Pixie and doing fine. I am currently available for foster or adoption! So fill out an application today, so we can meet and get our groove on!

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!
