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.

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.

The Pixie Project is raising the bar on animal rescue! Located in Portland, Oregon, Pixie’s goal is to transform animal adoption and rescue into a fun, family-friendly and positive experience by taking a hands-on, personal approach to each and every adoption. Pixie is committed to the art of match-making between pet and person!
In addition to providing amazing adoption services, The Pixie Project runs a low-cost veterinary clinic. The Scott Wainner Pixie Care Clinic offers low income and homeless pet owners access to vital veterinary care.
Over the last year, the Pixie Project has increased the number of surgeries performed by more than 5 times. A skilled team of high-volume veterinarians and vet techs can now perform twenty surgeries during our once-a-week surgery day. These surgeries are a combination of spay/neuter and emergency services, including dental extractions, amputations, mass removals, and other life-saving surgeries.
Our goal is not only to prevent overpopulation through easy access to spay/neuter surgeries, but to keep beloved pets in their existing homes. When pet owners fall on hard times (including, in many cases, seniors living on social security) they may not be able to afford a necessary surgery at a traditional vet, forcing them to surrender their beloved companion to already over-full shelters or consider euthanasia. Many of these animals are seniors themselves who have very limited adoption opportunities. Pixie is able to help keep these owners and pets together by performing affordable surgeries and assisting with medications.
