Jane (top) and Elizabeth (bottom) are two distinguished beauties who are about 1 and 1/2 years old. They are sisters who’ve spent their whole lives together, and recently both had their last litters of kittens. Now they’re spayed and all ready to find their new family! They are extremely sweet and social young ladies who’ve become pretty bonded. They like to sleep together and play together — and occasionally attend fancy dinner parties where they can show off their class and court potential suiters! Of course, Elizabeth is a little bit more independent and likes to adventure and play before settling down. Jane is a little more reserved but definitely snuggly — she is waiting for the love of her life to come whisk them away to their happily ever after. Are you looking for a pair of adorable young ladies to complete your love story? Come meet them at Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd & Burnside! They come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a combined adoption fee of $180.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a Mouse! Hey-that’s me! I am a cuddly and utterly adorable 6 year old Chihuahua weighing in at just 5lbs. Most of the day you can find me sleeping on my favorite bed or under some blankets on my favorite lap in the office. And that is just me! Cute, adorable, and as mellow as can be. Though I can be a little shy at first, with some cheese, I fall right into your love trap and am eager to bond! I have made friends with office kitty and we are pretty good buds, so a cat in the home would be just fine by me! Those mellow pups my size are ok too! Since I am a bit sensitive and reserved, I would need to be in a quiet low traffic adult only home owned by my adopters with a consistent routine. So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. You know if you give a Mouse a cookie, he will give you lots of love! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

I am Selena Kyle — named after the sleek and stylish Catwoman herself! I am a gorgeous and petite little calico lady cat that is about 1 & 1/2 years old. I was a young mom and came into Pixie with a litter of kittens, but I’ve since been spayed and am ready to start my own life with my new family! I’ve been pretty mellow since I’ve been here, and I like to take long cat naps in the sunshine — I’m probably catching up on all the sleep I lost while raising my kittens! That being said, when I’m not evading Batman and causing mischief in the streets of Gotham, I’m still a young kitty and really enjoy my playtime. I’m living peacefully around other cats in the Pixie cattery but I don’t seem to be a huge fan, so I may be happiest as an only cat but can probably adapt in the right home. I do seem to enjoy people big and small, and I’m definitely ready to leave my life in the alley and settle down in my forever home. Won’t you come say hello? I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Orange cats are known for being loving, cuddly, and talkative. I did not know this until I met JoJo and said, “This is the best cat I have ever met” and was promptly told that no one is surprised. He sleeps on top (or at least touching) my husband and I every night, greets us at the door by talking and plopping over to show his back, and loves being near us almost at all times. He can lay back and do his own thing and is accustomed to long working schedules but makes sure you know he missed you at the end of the day. He is overall the sweetest, most easy-going, gentleman cat I have ever met. He has lived with my husband and I for years but his history states he lived in a house with dogs and children and got along great with all of them. He was friendly and calm with any guests we had, including our young nieces. JoJo has hyperthyroidism and does need a medication once daily. He is currently taking a liquid, chicken flavored dose and is easy to med. He has no other health concerns.

Eliot is a sweet lady and loves pets and attention. She purrs like a passing truck and talks loudly near mealtime. She has a funny personality and she loves chasing. Strings, food, and pets from her people are her favorite things. She also loves high places. Her previous home included many cats and 2 dogs and it was reported that she was intimidated by the constant noise and her living companions. She may not do as well with a rowdy home or with aggressive animals. She did very well when our young nieces and any other guests came to visit and harassed them often for loves. She is not well suited to be an outdoor cat. She loves the indoor life as long as there is a high place and consistent food. She did escape once this year and we concluded she doesn’t know to come inside after she has been out. She has hyperthyroidism. The medication we give her is chicken flavored, once daily and she does great for that. She has a funny game with my husband where she sits on the highest tower of the cat tree and tries to gently bat him as he passes if he doesn’t reach up to pet her. Her favorite game with me is where I pet her chest and try to pull away before she can object by putting her paw on my hand. She is also used to long schedules and can do her own thing but thrives with daily loves.

This is Tuck, a 12 year old Siberian Husky! He’s a sweet boy and we would like to find him an appropriate home! Tuck is friendly and very food motivated.  He is not reactive to dogs, cats or any farm animals.  He’s interested, enjoys his walks on the farm, and is not reactive or alarmed by other animals.  He moves around well but is taking Rimadyl for his joints.  One of the side effects of his earlier neglect was a raging ear infection and terrible skin problems.  He now has a beautiful coat and his skin is looking great.  His ears are under control too.  Whew!  He’s not crazy about having his nails clipped but tolerates it well. We usually put a soft muzzle on him during nail clips.  He is a typical Husky in that he doesn’t really bark but he does talk when he wants something—kind of a howly sound.  But he’s really not noisy.  He just lets you know if you are late with his food!  In general he’s very quiet.  He would do well in a home where someone could take him out for regular potty breaks.  He never soils his bed but he’s a Senior and needs consistent potty time or easy access to a place to potty.  He’s beautiful, perky and enjoys everything and everyone.  But please no very small children or  very active dogs in a home for Tuck.  He would be fine with another mellow dog or cats.  He’s a Senior with typical aches and pains of an older individual and children tugging on him or dogs pouncing on him would be a difficult situation for him. Prospective families or individuals can contact Betsy at The Charlton Kennels, 503-621-3675.

Hello! My name is Jasper and I am a super cute 2-year-old Chihuahua/Terrier mix weighing in at 12lbs.  A few minutes with me and you can instantly see that I am a pup who is eager to bond and cuddle on your lap!  Once I open up, I am fun and happy little guy who enjoys hanging out with my dog pals and human friends over 12. Did I mention I like cuddling on your lap? Because that is my all time favorite thing to do! When I am not romping around with my doggy pals and playing with my favorite toys that is. I enjoy a nice little walk around the block every now and again, but really have a blast running around in a nice big yard. In fact, downtown city sounds can be a little scary and I would need to be in a owned home preferably on a quieter street with no cats. My confidence really shines when I am with another pup though, so I would really enjoy hanging with my new furry sibling around the yard. It is such a blast! And then it’s right back guessed it…snuggly on your lap watching our favorite Netflix shows. Cute and cuddly? I am the perfect combination. Fill out an application for me today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, microchipped with an adoption fee of $300. Interested in fostering me? Email today!

In honor of National Mutt Day on July 31st, here are the top 5 ways to celebrate your mutt!
#1. Pamper your pet
Zebra stripes anyone? Watch out for the newest trend. Dog owners are getting serious about hair care. A day at the spa might be just what your dog needs and deserves. You can even DIY with a little trim or distinctive pop of dog-friendly color at home.
#2. Find out your doggy’s DNA
Have you ever wondered what mix your mutt might be? Order a DNA test to find out. Nowadays there are plenty of options you can find on the web. The results won’t change your devotion to your furry friend, but it could give you some remarkable insight. Adding another piece of your pup’s puzzle might even make you more thankful for her uniqueness. Poodle-Mastiff? Pit bull-Chihuahua? Best friends come in so many great combinations!
#3. Throw a party
Party at the park or have a low-key celebration on the lawn. Make it an event to celebrate your marvelous mutt! Invite a couple four-legged friends along as a play date. Bonus if your pooch’s buddies bring treats. Frisbees and party hats all around!
#4. Take on a new adventure
If you want to try out a new sport, go for one you can do with your dog. There are a variety of options including paddle boarding, boating, hiking, swimming, and more. Your mutt may even surprise you with their athletic ability. It’s also a great way to keep active in these beautiful summer months.
#5. Serious snuggle time
There is no better way to show the love you have for your fluffer than a dedicated snuggle-fest. All you need is your mutt, maybe a cozy blanket, and plenty of “who’s the best doggy in the world.” Plus, spending time together strengthens the bond between you and your dog.
Have fun with your mutt! Pixie Project will be celebrating all of their beautiful mixes too for National Mutt Day! Check out all of their adoptable dogs waiting for forever homes at

Too cool for school! Hi everyone. My name is Luna and I am an adorable little 7 year old Maltese/ Shih Tzu mix weighing at 12lbs. Not only am I wearing these Fetch glasses because they totally match my new outfit and hairstyle, but because I am also blind. In fact, both of my eyes had to recently get removed. But I have recovered well and ready to settle into a nice quiet home full of snuggles and cuddles! It still takes me a little while to feel out my surroundings and navigate the environment, but once I am acclimated, I just love to use my nose and sniff around the house. I don’t mind hanging out with mellow kitties and pups, as I am currently in a foster home with both! Speaking of my foster mom, she discovered recently that I love to escape these hot temps while taking a dip in her little pool. What a perfect way to cool off! I would prefer to be in a low key quiet home with kids over the age of 12 where I can investigate new smells, add some new styles to my already rockin’ wardrobe, and curl up in your lap for some bonding time.  Shall we make our debut on the runway? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
