Coco 1

Do you enjoy meandering through the park in the summer? How about sitting on the porch with a cup of cider in the fall? Cuddling by the fire to keep away the winter blues? I love all of these things too and would be the perfect girl to join you!  I’m Coco and at 8 years young I’ve got a soul as sweet as sugar and a spirit bright as sunshine.  I’m wonderful with other dogs, and lovely with kids.  I am best in a home without cats. Are you ready to give this golden girl the life she deserves?  Fill out an adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $150.

Hi I’m Bruno! A dashing six year old domestic short hair male feline. My foster mom says I am very healthy and quite flirty when I want attention, I even paw and make biscuits in the air! While shy at first, I am also known to warm up quickly to new company, even mellow dogs and young kids once they’ve settled. I am neutered, microchipped, and current on all vaccines, and my adoption fee is $100. Think I could be just the man you’ve been looking for? Fill out an adoption application at so we can arrange a time to get to know eachother! 

– Grant Will Enhance Pixie’s Veterinary Assistance Program –

Portland, OR (June 16, 2014) – The Pixie Project (@ThePixieProject) announced today that they have received a $7500.00 grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust. The funds will be used to enhance The Pixie Project’s Veterinary Assistance Program.

In addition to their work as an animal adoption center, The Pixie Project provides veterinary services to Portland’s low income and homeless communities at The Scott Wainner Pixie Care Clinic.  This grant will help ensure that The Pixie Project can provide these services on a regular basis for the rest of 2014.  It will help cover the costs of surgical supplies, veterinarian technicians and the occasional veterinarian when volunteer veterinarians are not available. Services will range from emergency care, such as stitches and amputations, as well as basic veterinary care, including teeth extractions and tumor removal.  They will also provide preventative care.

“We are incredibly grateful to Banfield Charitable Trust to partner with us on this project.  Veterinary care is expensive, and very often people are asked to surrender their animal if they want it to receive care” says Amy Sacks, The Pixie Project’s Executive Director  “We believe that helping animals and keeping them in their current homes helps the already overloaded shelter system from becoming even more burdened.”

The Pixie Project offers support for local over-crowded under-funded county shelters by bringing animals into Pixie’s family friendly adoption center and matching them with forever families. Pixie also offers free and low cost veterinary services including spay and neuter surgeries for the pets of Portland homeless and low-income communities. 


About The Pixie Project:

The Pixie Project (@ThePixieProject) in Portland, Oregon is a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue. We love pets and people through personalized pet adoption and low cost veterinary assistance. For more information on the Pixie Project, visit

However if there are some toys around I know how to have a good time!  I love other dogs and prefer dog savvy cats. Can’t wait to come home from camp and meet you. Fill out an application at and hand it in before we meet! I come spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Adoption fee $250. See you soon!
