The Pixie Project is a nonprofit animal rescue and low-cost veterinary clinic serving the Portland area. We focus on providing family-friendly, personalized pet adoption, as well as operating a clinic that provides affordable veterinary assistance and spay/neuter surgery. We are located directly across the street from the convention center at 510 NE MLK BLVD.
Where our animals come from
The Pixie Project ‘s adoptable animals come from a variety of places but the majority are from surrounding over-crowded county shelters and rescues located in more rural areas of Oregon. As many of these areas are not served by a local shelter we provide an urban outlet where the animals can have maximum visibility and exposure to potential adopters. Animals that come to our rescue also have access to veterinary and training support to meet any and all needs.
Our adoption philosophy
The Pixie Project focuses on finding life-long matches between pet and adopter and for that reason our adoption process is a bit more in depth than some other shelters. We appreciate the opportunity to sit down and talk with any person or family looking to adopt a new pet so we can best help them find an animal that suites their home and lifestyle. We have a variety of animals of all ages, sizes and breeds and so if you are considering adding a pet to your home please start the process by filling out an application! Once that’s complete, we’ll make an appointment with you to make sure that you get the personalized attention and service you and your new pet deserve. Read more about our adoption philosophy.
