Hi! Hello! My name is Ethan and I am a 4 year old Shepherd mix weighing in around 55lbs.  I am very happy and energetic guy who loves to play all day every day! Whether it’s fetch in the yard or joining you on your daily run, I am very active guy  ready to start the day with some exercise. This city life is pretty overwhelming for me and my environmental sensitivities require that I be in a rural low traffic home owned by my adopters. With that puppy like charm and goofy personality, I can be quite the entertaining fellow. Because of my puppy like bounces, I would need to be in a home with no kitties or kids. But I have made some pup friends here at Pixie and wouldn’t mind having another one in the home to play with! I am a sweet goofy boy ready see what adventures tomorrow will bring! Care to tag along? Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

This is Emma, a beautiful 13 year old friend looking for a new home. Her family loves her dearly, it will break their hearts to see her go, but one of them has developed a severe allergy to cat hair. Emma has a common & manageable older cat condition called hyperthyroidism, but they love her so much they’ve offered to pay for her cure so we can find her new home! There are numerous treatment options to fit different lifestyles, budgets and the cats themselves.

Her family says she is intelligent and good-natured (we completely agree!), inquisitive, and playful 🙂
Her interests include warming laps at night, self-grooming to keep up her appearance, and would do best in a home where she can find privacy away from other pets and children.

A permanent cure for hyperthyroidism is called Iodine 131, wherein a special facility will give her a single pill targeting the overactive part of the thyroid gland. It’s actually the same treatment that many people receive for the same condition. Fortunately, we have several hospitals in Portland offering Iodine 131 treatment. The cost is generally about $1000 and is very safe. The best part is that, in her future, no daily meds would be needed – it truly is a cure! Emma is a great candidate for this treatment. If you wish to adopt her, we can give you more info about meeting her, it is a very simple process

fezzick-1Hi everyone! Fezzick here. I am a super cute 2 year old, 7lb Yorkie/Chihuahua mix. Just look at that scruff! How can you resist?! Being from rural Washington, I am not used to the big city life. But I love my puppy pals here at Pixie and I think a confident female pup could really help me come out my shell! Since I am a bit shy, I would do best in a lower traffic home with kids over the age of 12 and no cats. I am cute, funny, and my looks are down right entertaining. With a little patience, some treats, and another doggy pal, you can really see my personality blossom! Can I join your fuzzball team?! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

I’m Maxine! When I first went into foster care, I didn’t trust people at all and hid away at the very sight of them. It took awhile for me to understand that humans are actually pretty awesome! Now that I’m more confident and living in the Pixie cattery, I can still be a little shy around new people, but just give me a little time and lots of pets and I will warm up. I need a quiet home where folks are patient and understand how to help me adjust. Once I’m settled in, though, I will reward you with snuggles and purrs, and even help your diet by stealing your pizza (I’m pretty food-motivated and have the belly to prove it)!  I’ve been around a small dog and lots of other cats, and we get along just fine. I actually really love to groom and snuggle with other cats, so would prefer a home with at least one such critter. I’m also a champ at using the litter box and scratching post, and love chasing dangly toys. I have no interest in being outside but do like to watch birds and other entertainment from the windows. I’m really a sweet girl that just needs a gentle touch (and a fluffy blanket or stuffed toy on which to “make biscuits” — I am sooooo cute when I do that)! Are you looking for a loving kitty like me to add to your family? Come down to Pixie to meet me today! I am about 2 years old and come to you spayed, vaccinated, and microshipped with an adoption fee of $100.

Hi everyone! My name is Nora and I am just a sweet 2 year old yellow lab. Being a Southern Belle from Texas, this big move to the Pacific Northwest is a lot to take in and I am looking for a nice quiet foster home for a little bit of rest and relaxation.  The shelter environment is a little stressful to me and though the staff love me and I get lots of tasty treats and play time with my dog pals, it’s just way  too much. I just need a week at the spa, you know? So we can really see my true personality shine! My potential foster would need to be in a quiet owned home with someone who isn’t gone for long periods of time and the most important factor is that there is another confident pup in the house to show me the ropes and help me feel more comfortable! Let Pixie know that you are interested in fostering me by emailing them today at!

Lando-pic-1 (1)

Who’s the good looking smuggler in the empire? It’s me, Lando Calrissian! Weighing in at 50lbs, I am big old goofball 2 year old shepherd mix.  But don’t let my age fool you! I am still very puppy like, bouncy, and full of energy. I am always ready to be on the go, whether its a play session with my puppy pals, fetch in the yard, or piloting the Millennium Falcon to our next galactic hiking spot! When I am not jumping around and having a good time, I am actually a pretty smart guy-with the help of a few tasty treats of course. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! Because of my puppy wiggles, I would need to be in an home without cats and with kids over 14. Hopefully a nice big yard to run around in too! I really loved playing with my puppy space pals and thus would enjoy romping around with another confident pup who likes to play like me.  They know me throughout the galaxy as a gambler, but don’t worry, I wouldn’t gamble my love away to anybody else but you! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Smokey & Bandit rf_5186

Howdy, partner! Smokey and Bandit here, waiting to steal your heart! We’re two 9-month-old brothers who came out West to find our new family. We came from another rescue in Pendleton, Oregon, but the ride didn’t phase us! We’re super friendly and outgoing kittens who are the perfect bundle of playful and mellow. If you come to visit us, you may find us lounging around, sleeping in a pile together or waiting for someone to come cuddle us! Once we have had our nap time — it’s time to play! We are still kittens and can easily get the “zoomies” and run around the cattery chasing anything that moves. Though we aren’t completely bonded, and could go home separately, we think we’d be a wonderful pair. Are you looking for two handsome young men to complete your home? Come by Pixie to meet us today! Kitties like us who are over 6 months old come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100 (each).

Hi, my name is Piper.  I’m a petite kitty who is perhaps of Russian Blue heritage but my owners aren’t sure.  I am a beautiful princess who likes to be treated as such!  I would love to move away from this busy household that includes a teenage boy that, honestly, I’m not very fond of.  I am a little timid until you get to know me but I love being pet and having my neck scratched. I will return the love with head-butts and lots of purring but don’t particularly like being held. I am a great nap and nighttime buddy and love to sleep as close to you as I can get. I’m 9 years old and just under 10 lbs., spayed, up to date on vaccines and have a clean bill of health from my vet.  I still have my claws but I don’t scratch much, only on the carpeted stairs that look to me like a giant scratching post. I need an owner that appreciates me for the princess that I am!  Before this busy and loud family, I lived in a nursing home environment and would love to return to that kind of calm. Please contact Christina at: or 503-297-1413 to adopt me!
