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!

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 Lily, I’m 5 years old and I am a cuddly, talkative gal. I’ll get you with my big, swimming pool eyes and full coat of fur. Some would say I’m shy at first, but I’m just looking for a loving home and a compatible family who can give me the attention I need. I don’t like being picked up very much, nor am I a big fan of boxes, but things I do like are: ear scratches, nuzzles, cuddling  at night, and following you wherever you go.  I’m the ideal roommate; I’m extremely clean because I love keeping my fur extra soft for you, am very quiet and sneaky so I won’t wake you up at night (except for my snuggling). I can’t wait to meet you! I am in a foster home, so contact Pixie to set up a meeting with me! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

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!

Hi there. My name is Scully. I am about two years old and I just spent a lovely summer on the streets of Southeast Portland. I really enjoyed my freedom in the warm sunshine and feasting off the kindness of strangers for a few months, but when it started getting cold and wet outside one of the neighbors felt sorry for me and took me in.
The humans are great. I can’t ever give or get too much love from the human grown ups and kids in my new family. I want to snuggle and give kisses all the day long, and I get so happy when I am getting love from my humans that I drool a little, which is kind of embarrassing.
The dog is ok, too – she knows she can’t mess with me because I am street wise, so she respects my space.  I really can’t stand the other cat in the house, though, so I am doing my best to antagonize him in the hope that he disappears. Or maybe I can move to a home with people and possibly dogs, but no other cats.
Aside from the problem with the other cat, I have been a really great family member. I love being held by kids and grown ups alike. Not to brag, but everyone who meets me falls in love. I am litter box trained, microchipped, vaccinated, spayed, FIP/FIV negative, and can be either an indoor only or indoor-outdoor cat.  I am recovering from skin problems from a flea allergy from my days on the streets, but you would never guess it from my luxurious, thick fur.
My humans are sad because I have to live in the bathroom so I don’t mess with the other cat, and they know I am lonely in here. They are looking for a nice family for me with no other cats. They will send my toys, treats, bowls, litter box and some food to my new home with me. Please save me from this lonely existence and I will repay you tenfold with kitty love!

I’m looking for a new home for my dog Clyde. He is a 4-5 year old lab/hound mix and weighs about 65lbs. I adopted Clyde from the Oregon Humane Society in Portland this past January. He is gentle but very strong and watch out for his happy tail, when it gets going it can hurt. Clyde has many of the traits of a hound besides his good looks. He is alert, adventurous, and energetic. He just keeps going and going and going. He loves being outside following his nose and chasing most anything that moves, birds, squirrels, and especially cats. To my surprise is does swim quite well. He likes and is playful with other dogs but eventually does his own thing. He is also one of the best couch potatoes I ever had the pleasure of sharing a couch with.  He is very well housed trained!

Clyde loves to be around people the most, he is happiest lounging, follow someone around the house or yard, or going for a walk. He does have a high level of anxiety when left alone and when riding in a car.  He is normally not destructive when left in the house, only when he is isolated in a small room or crate.  He normally only voices his frustration vocally with whining, barking and howling. I am currently working with a veterinarian trying ways to reduce his anxiety through understanding, training and medication.

Clyde loves going for walks and long runs. Yep, I am a distance runner and Clyde has joined me on runs as long as 13 miles!! And he still has energy to play, I just have to watch his paws for soreness and abrasions. He has gotten better on leash and I have used a gentle leader on him in places of heavy distraction and on our runs. He gets excited every time I put my shoes on.  He is in wonderful health, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered.

I feel Clyde would do well in a home when someone is around most of the day. He has done well at doggie daycare, but I have been unable to use it more because I normally start work before the daycares open. He gets upset with kennels when he is isolated in a room or crate. We have boarded him for multiple days with local dog sitters that care for him at their home. He would love a yard to explore and take care of business, but has gotten use to doing his business on a leash too.

If you think Clyde would be good fit in your home, contact Colin at or 503-726-8809

Who is that cute little nut? It’s me, Cashew! As indicated by my adorable fuzzy ears, I am a super cute 4 year old Westie mix weighing in at 19lbs. Though I was a bit shy at first, I am really coming out of my shell and have become quite the charmer! I’m more of a snuggler than anything and really just want a nice warm lap to get comfy in. I’m a great walker and love to go on my daily afternoon stroll and then hurry up inside from the snow and warm up in front of the fireplace! I have made a few puppy pals here at Pixie, but dog parks would be a little to overwhelming for me. I tend to be a little too interested in playing with those kitties, so none in my home please. But I love to hang with my human friends over 10! I am just a loving guy looking for a quiet low key home that is owned by my adopters, as we relax the night away watching some Netflix. Sound like your ideal day too? Then fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.
