A huge thank you to the Oregon Jewish Community Youth Foundation for their recent grant to the Pixie Project! This grant will allow our Pixie Care Clinic to provide services to to low-income pet owners in Portland, keeping more cats and dogs happy, healthy, and in their homes.
– $10,000 Grant Will Enhance Pixie’s Veterinary Assistance Program –
Portland, OR (June 26, 2015) – The Pixie Project announced today that they received a $10,000 grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust. The funds from this grant will be used to enhance the Pixie Project’s Veterinary Assistance Program.
In addition to their work as an animal rescue and adoption center, the Pixie Project provides affordable veterinary services to Portland’s low-income and homeless residents at the Scott Wainner Pixie Care Clinic. This grant will help to ensure that the Pixie Project can continue to provide these services to those who need them most. Grant funding will help to cover to cost of veterinarians and veterinary technicians, the cost of surgical supplies, and medications.
This is the second year that Pixie has been awarded a grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust. In 2014, the Pixie Project was awarded a $7,500 grant from the Trust for veterinary services, allowing Pixie to treat a wide variety of pets for low-income clients, including mass removals, amputations, dental cleanings and extractions, and other surgeries. This year’s grant will allow Pixie to continue to expand the number of pets that we can assist in our clinic.
“We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of the Banfield Charitable Trust. Last year we were able to do amazing work with the Trust’s help, and we know this year’s grant will make an even bigger impact in the lives of Portland pets,” says Amy Sacks, the Pixie Project’s Executive Director. “At Pixie, we want to do everything we can to keep animals in their homes with their dedicated owners. By performing these surgeries, we’re helping people keep their pets with them rather than surrendering them to an over-crowded shelter.”
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 low-cost veterinary services including spay and neuter surgeries for the pets of Portland homeless and low-income residents.

Duncan needs a new home, but he has a condition that will require lots of love and potentially forgiveness. If that sounds interesting to you, read on.
It’s complicated. He has gastrointestinal issues that are causing intermittent diarrhea. He has always used a cat box without issue, but unfortunately when he has a bout he sometimes gets a little on his feet and that can get tracked inside. We have a baby who is about to start crawling… it’s not a great combination, even as hard as we try to clean up after Duncan. He’s currently taking Prednisone, which has helped, but it’s unclear whether it’s going to solve it completely. He might need further testing (though we’ve already been through a lot of the tests) and trial & error, but we simply can’t do it—the testing, nor the wrangling.
He’s a very lovey guy who is otherwise healthy and cat-like. He was declawed in the front long ago, so he has to be indoor only. He gets along just fine with babies, dogs, and loves being held over your shoulder, but may have to be an only cat (we’re not sure how he gets along with other felines).
This is a really difficult choice for us to make. We adopted Duncan ten years ago. He’s part of our family and we would love to see him go to a great home. For more information please contact Rob at email@example.com.

Cali is a 7 1/2 year old Manx tortoiseshell cat. She has been spayed and microchipped. She has lived indoor all her life. It is quite a sight to watch her tailess body as she romps around with her furry friend a 4lb chihuahua.
Cali would probably do well in a home without children / large dogs and parents who are willing to give her the space while she is ajusting to her new home. Although she is not fond of being randomly picked up, she loves to be held and given snuggles on her terms. Cali loves her face and under her chin rubbed, as well as her back and sometimes tummy petted.
She is liter box trained and has never had a accident. She likes to munch on her dry food, but is given a small amount of soft food 2 times a day. In the morning she is given 1/4 tsp of MiraLAX mixed in her soft food to keep her regular, one of the perks of being a manx.
Unfortunately I have to move accross the states and will not be able to take her with me. I am seeking for a new home for my beloved furry friend.

Both cats have been kept strictly indoors their entire life, and will both turn 11 this year in mid September. They have lived in a quiet house without other pets or children. Both Chloe and Maple can be a little timid around new guests, and especially noisy kids. Unfortunately, life changes have made it impossible to keep the elderly kitties through their senior years. I am hoping to re-home the middle-aged ladies to another quiet home where they can get the attention that they deserve.
Chloe is an all black short hair cat. She is the direct descendent of the leopard, and this she proves when she attacks a red dot from a laser pointer with such ferocity, that it makes even radio shack timid. As a typical cat, she prefers to get her attention on her terms, but this doesn’t meant that she doesn’t like to snuggle.
Maple is a medium hair black and white cat. She is the direct result of domestication of felines. While she may not have the quickest cat-like reflexes, or natural instinct of a cold blooded killer; she makes up for her shortcomings by wanting to be loved by her people. She adores attention. She is a little more timid than Chloe, but she is the first to want attention after the dust has settled.

Stash is shy at first but warms up once he gets to know you, he seems to take his time making sure he can trust humans. He loves to have his belly and head rubbed, as he lays next to you on the couch. Stash would be happiest in a home without small children as he scares easily from fast movement and noises. Once he is comfortable with his surroundings he begins to interact with his family and becomes talkative. He truly is a great kitty, and will be a loyal and loving companion to the person who takes the time to get to know him. Stash is currently in a foster home and is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Adoption fee $100
