Tuesday is a very loved, sweet and spicy 9-year-old male domestic shorthair. He has beautiful green eyes and a luxurious silky black coat. This handsome guy craves attention and enjoys cuddles and pets, on his own terms. Tues likes to observe and be close to the action, and he responds to his name (and a few nicknames). He tends to enjoy lounging around and is not very vocal. He has lived indoors with the same human since he was a kitten and has lived with a rambunctious young dog for the last four years. It seems Tuesday has gotten too stressed in his older age in this living environment and began urinating outside the litter box. Tuesday is seeking a lower stress home and a compassionate human willing to help him readjust to his new life. Tuesday’s current human is heartbroken to have to find him a new home, and wants to find a truly special person to take him as their own.

We’re so grateful to Jeff and Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville for helping us make connections with new shelter partners and for funding the transfer of animals in need to Pixie!

As the owner of Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville in Oregon, and Epic Ford in Everett, WA, Jeff Swickard has put giving back at the forefront of his businesses.

In 2016, Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville donated over $116,000 to nonprofits, with giving in 2015 and 2014 totaling $140,000 and $90,000, respectively.

While his businesses regularly support a variety of causes, including arts, local veterans, children’s cancer, and other charitable organizations, Jeff’s personal passion is in supporting animal welfare organizations, including the Pixie Project.

In fact, for each car sold, Mercedes-Benz of Wilsonville donates $100 to either the Pixie Project or Oregon Dog Rescue. In December 2016, that meant a $14,000 donation to the Pixie Project to help find homes for animals!

Jeff was inspired to get involved with animal welfare in 2005, after welcoming a rescue dog into his family. That experience compelled him to help other animals like her.

He is passionate about supporting organizations that help animals most in need, including those at high-risk of euthanasia and animals impacted by medical needs, breed discrimination, behavioral problems, and other disadvantages.

“I’m drawn to the Pixie Project,” he says, ”because of their commitment to helping animals that might not otherwise be adopted, like those from overcrowded rural shelters, as well as the vital veterinary care services they provide to low-income pet owners.”

As a donor, Jeff is motivated by the the millions of animals still in our shelters. “We are committed to championing the organizations that are dedicated to saving animals’ lives and helping them find permanent homes,” he says.

Hi my name is Molly. I am looking for a new home as I lost my owner who was 105.5 years of age when she passed away. She was sort of a celebrity and was even on the show called cuppa Joe on KG W news. She also rescued me from the pound. I am about eight years of age and I am not used to living with any other animals or children. I can be very affectionate and I also like my alone time. I can’t wait to find my new forever home. If you are interested in meeting me, please email Katy at

Daisy is a 17 year old sweet, quiet indoor-only cat who I took in to foster after her “mom and dad” passed away 6 months apart from each other from cancer. This has been devastating for us all. I took her in as her former house-sitter and family friend. Alas, she is not adjusting well in our home. She needs to be the only cat in a home. She does well with low key dogs who know how to respect a cat’s space. No kids unless they are older kids who know how to be gentle and respectful to cats. In my house, she has become increasingly agitated at random times and if she ever sees one of the other cats I worry she’s stressing herself out so badly that she’s going to give herself a stroke. She basically doesn’t leave my room anymore. I am heartbroken as I wish she would understand that our home wants to provide her with love. But so many changes so soon seem to be proving too much for this old lady.

Family members of the deceased are more than willing to cover all costs of care for this cat.  I am really just trying to find a trusting home for peace of mind that this cat can live out the end of her life comfortably and peacefully. As far as I know she is healthy and has no obvious medical concerns. For more information, please contact Stephanie at: or 503-367-3643.

Meet Cricket! Cricket is a 5 year old, snugly Yorkshire Terrier that we got from a rescue a year and a half ago. She defines lap dog! In fact, if she sees you headed in the general direction of a chair, she is one step ahead of you and already planning on jumping on your lap for the remainder of the evening. Cricket doesn’t like toys and is not very playful. She loves to be held and just wants to be in the same room as you. Rain is stressful to her so a covered patio for going potty outside would be helpful in preventing accidents. If the weather is nice, she likes short walks. Cricket knows basic commands such as “sit” lay down” “outside?” and “go potty.” She definitely knows the word “treat!” 🙂 If she goes in a room she isn’t allowed in, we say “out” and she obeys. She knows “on your bed” when we are putting her to bed at night or leaving the house during the day. She is not crate trained (makes her anxious) but she does well with dog boarding when we vacation. We trained her to sleep in the dog bed and at night and keep her closed off in our kitchen with our other dog. They sleep on a dog bed which has a pet heating pad underneath that they LOVE! Our vet actually recommended letting her sleep in our bed to help relieve her stress at night. She would not object to sleeping in your bed with you….if you allow that in your home. 😉

Why we are re-homing her:

Cricket has been misplaced one too many times. She has chronic stress and anxiety. Cricket is currently living with our family of four (we have two teenagers and another small dog). We feel she would be happier and healthier in a home where someone is home most of the day. (Work at home? Retired?) When we got her, she was living with a foster family that had small children and lots of other dogs. They told us she was “generally happy and sweet natured, she just needed to put on a few pounds.” They had placed her before we got her and it didn’t work out so she went back to the foster home. When we got home with her we quickly learned that Cricket has text book anxiety and needed lots of extra love and nutrition. She growls when scared, starts sneezing and licking her lips excessively, or scratching at herself excessively when she is scared, intimidated or nervous. After trying everything natural for anxiety in pets, we tried medication. She responded very well to the medicine but we unfortunately can’t afford to medicate her monthly. Our biggest concern with keeping her is that our family lifestyle is causing her more anxiety than she can handle. If interested in her adoption, please contact Ali at 503-853-4473 or! We are asking a $200 adoption fee.

Hello! I’m Little Miss Crumpet and I am a sweet 1 year old Black Mouth Cur mix weighing in at 38lbs. I am such a super nice and lovely lady. Being a rural girl, this city is all new to me and I would prefer to stick to my Southern roots in an owned home out of the city with kids over 12. But I absolutely LOVE playing with other doggy friends. So much so that I need to have another confident puppy companion in the home to romp around with and go show me the ropes! Kitties are ok too. I am such a cuddly girl and after a long day of play and activity, I would really enjoy to get comfy on the couch and settle in for the night–under those warm blankets of course! Though I can be a little shy at first, with patience and a few treats, you will see my wonderful personality and my readiness to bond to my people! What do you say?! Want a little Crumpet to go with your daily tea? Then fill out an application and we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

fezzick-1Hi everyone! Fezzick here. I am a super cute 2 year old, 7lb Yorkie/Chihuahua mix. Just look at that scruff! How can you resist?! Not only am I super adorable, but I am spunky, fun, and downright entertaining. I really enjoy going on my afternoon walks around in the neighborhood. When I am not doing that, my next favorite thing is to play with my toys. I just LOVE my squeaky toys. Since I am a bit shy, I would do best in a lower traffic home with kids over the age of 8 and no cats. But I do have some really great puppy pals and another dog in the home would be lots of fun! At the end of a long day, I am ready to jump up on your lap and snuggle the night away, as we fall asleep watching some of favorite movies. Sound like your ideal day too? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Who has beautiful long hair, is very handsome and strong, and who just can’t believe it’s not butter? It’s me, Fabio! At 7 years young, my puppy-like charm and good looks captivate everyone I meet! Especially my two legged human friends over 10. Though I mostly enjoy a good snuggle, I do have a fun young energy that loves to play. The hustle and bustle of the big city is new for me and quite frankly it’s a lot to take in. But with my celebrity status, I know with a little training starting in a quiet area, I could really learn to love the city while greeting my adoring fans!  I have made some really good doggy friends here at Pixie and would love another pup to romp around with. And those kitties are ok too! Heads will turn in awe as I walk down the street, but I only have eyes for you. Ready to ride off into the sunset, happily ever after? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
