That’s right! After 5 years and more than 1,500 happy adoptions, the Pixie Project is ready to take it to the next level!  In July of 2012 the Pixie Project will be tripling the size of our adoption facility!

 This will allow us to house ten times more dogs and give our surrounding over crowded shelters the much-needed support they deserve.  Our new adoption area will feature 20 new dog runs, a puppy ward, and of course communal exercise areas for our adoptable pooches to frolic and play.  Once our expansion has been completed the Pixie Project’s goal will be to place 1,000 adoptable animals per year into new forever homes!

Most recently we have made the decision to really take it to the next level by having our very own clinic here at the Pixie Project!  This will allow us to not only vet all of our own Pixie dogs and cats on site but also hugely expand our low cost and free spay and neuter and veterinary service programs for the pets of Portland’s low-income and homeless communities.  

Are you interested in helping with our expansion?  

Starting this summer volunteers with experience in carpentry, cleaning and organization will be needed to help us make this change quickly and with as few expenses as possible.

Financial donations are always greatly appreciated and will help us with the costs of our kennels and other building preparations. Please visit our “donate” section to make a tax deductible donation.

Thank you to our amazing community of donors, volunteers, adopters, fosters and friends for the support and kindness you have shown us over the last 5 years.

Now let’s GROW together!
