It’s almost that time of the year again where we all have a lot of family to visit with.  Maybe you are taking a road trip to see Aunt Verna in Seattle or maybe you will be driving all over Oregon to show Grandpa Hector from Cincinnati all the great sites, wherever your car is bound to take you you better make sure you have had a recent oil change!

We are excited to have partnered with Green Drop Garage as a part of their Save Half Give Half event.  From now until October 20th you can receive a sweet deal, 50% off an oil change and Green Drop will donate half of that to Pixie Project.  All you have to do is visit their site HERE, buy your oil change coupon and designate Pixie Project as your charity of choice!

Happy driving everyone!

Competition is good for the soul – and good for Pixie’s bank account!  We are looking to launch a donation box campaign in various local businesses. In order to make hip businesses more inclined to put these donation boxes out on their counters we want to make them CUTE! So….we would like to put a challenge out to our wonderful Pixie family – who can design the best donation box?
The winner will not only get bragging rights and the ability his or her donation boxes all over the city but also  a Pixie Project American Apparel hoodie!

Contest guidelines:
Boxes must not be larger than 6′ tall by 6′ inches wide.  Boxes must be able to be reproduced as needed as we grow this campaign. Boxes must have a location where cash and coins can be easily deposited but also a mostly solid top so as to avoid theft. The cost for each box including labor and materials must not exceed $15.

Ok everyone – Have fun!!!!

Our re-launch party was a huge success!  A big, boisterous thank you to everyone who was able to drop by the party and make the night one to remember!

Now that the Pixie Project is officially re-opened please feel free to come by, say “hello,” and give our cattery kitties some love.  It will be a bit longer before our dogs are available, as we are waiting on some finishing touches to our kennels (can’t have them live without their salon and jacuzzi!). We will update this website as soon as we start intaking dogs again, so keep checking back.  If you are interested in fostering or volunteering, please shoot us an email at info@pixieproject.org as we are getting back on track to organizing those programs.

Our new hours are:

Tuesday-Friday: 11 am- 6 pm

Saturday: 11 am – 4 pm

Sunday and Monday: CLOSED

The expansion remodel has finally arrived!  We are all very excited to transform our space and house more animals than ever before! 

We will be officially closed to start the transition starting Friday June 29.  Our estimated time of construction is two months and we are re-opening in September.  Please note that Pixie staff will continue to check emails and voicemails as usual during the summer and will continue to adopt out animals currently in our care. 

Everyone have a safe and wonderful summer. Thank you for all of your support!

The kittens are coming, the kittens are coming!  

Baby cats in foster care are beginning to get big enough to find homes of their own!  Want to be one of those homes?  Fill out an application at pixieproject.org and send it in so we can let you know as kittens filter in.  Adoption fees are $135 and included in the adoption price are: the first 2-3 rounds of vaccines, spay/neuter, microchip, flea treated, de-wormed, and FIV/FELV test.  To keep them happy and socialized we ask that any kittens under 4 months old go to homes where there are other animals, or 2 be adopted together.

Thank you to everyone for the phenomenal support we received on marketing the “Fight Club” Yin-Yang table!  The table sold for a whopping $4351 which will go a long way in helping us expand and reach out to more animals. 

The wonderful Dominguez family, winners of the auction, drove up from California to collect the table and meet Chuck Palahniuk in person.

Hey “Fight Club” fans!  Get a special piece of movie memorabilia and help save some animals! Chuck Palahniuk, acclaimed author of cult classics such as “Fight Club” and “Choke” recently donated a special piece of “Fight Club” history to help raise funds for Pixie Project’s upcoming shelter expansion!

Watch the video of Pixie Project Executive Director Amy Sacks and Chuck Palahniuk discussing the history of this very special piece!  HERE

This unique and very cool is available now on eBay.  See the description below and be prepared to bid! BID NOW!

 

This is the Furni Fruktbar table from the apartment scene in the movie Fight Club, staring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt. It is the actual table that was used in the film, and was custom made to look like a Faux-Ikea table.

This Ying-Yang table was given to Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club) by David Fincher (director of Fight Club). The bottom is signed by Chuck with a brief history of the table. It reads:

“This table was custom made in 1998 for the film ‘Fight Club.’ In 1999 the film’s director, David Fincher, sent it to me as a gift. I used it in my home until 2011, when I donated it to an auction to fund the ‘Pixie Project’, a dog rescue organization.”

The coffee table is approximately 3.5 feet wide and stands 1.5 feet tall. It has a glass top and bottom and is built very solid.

All proceeds from this auction will help fund the Pixie Project, the dog rescue organization located in Portland, OR. Local (PDX) winners will have the opportunity to meet Chuck and have him explain how to put the table together.

SPECIAL NOTE: If the winner picks up the table (in Portland, OR) Chuck Palahniuk is willing to meet you to show you how to set it up! Don’t miss out on this special opportunity to help rescue cats and dogs AND meet Chuck in person!
