Safron 2

Saffron –  a very special flavor, just like me!   I am a six year old terrier mix who loves playing with balls, hiking trails and riding in the car. I’m finally finished with having babies (OK, so I was a just a little promiscuous as a young dog.) and am ready for adventure. I love being around people, including kids, and am afraid of nothing, even vacuum cleaners. I like being the top dog which I think is perfectly fine but apparently some dogs can find my style a little, shall we say, overbearing. My foster dad, who is helping me work on my social skills, says I’m getting better every day but will probably need help for a while from my new family. I know when to turn on my terrier energy for an outdoor activity or when to mellow out on the patio. I would prefer to have my new family to myself but the right pooch or cat roommate is a possibility. Did I mention I’m the perfect size?  At 30 lbs. I’m not too big or too small and can go anywhere with you! Are you ready for this darling girl to bring some pizzazz to your life?  Fill out an application at pixieproject.org so we can schedule a meet!  I am house trained, vaccinated, chipped and spayed. Adoption fee $250.

Hi I’m Bruno! A dashing six year old domestic short hair male feline. My foster mom says I am very healthy and quite flirty when I want attention, I even paw and make biscuits in the air! While shy at first, I am also known to warm up quickly to new company, even mellow dogs and young kids once they’ve settled. I am neutered, microchipped, and current on all vaccines, and my adoption fee is $100. Think I could be just the man you’ve been looking for? Fill out an adoption application at pixieproject.org so we can arrange a time to get to know eachother!

Are you looking for LOVE this summer?  I am a 1 year old affectionate, loyal lady that will be the best companion for an experienced dog owner!  I am a quirky girl that will make you smile with my humorous antics (including giving “high tens”), but I also need a home to guide me through some of my more sensitive issues.  I can be nervous meeting new people and animals, so I need a home with someone who is patient and uses positive reinforcement with no small kids.  My foster mom says I’m super smart and more like a Border Collie in a Chihuahua body.  That means once I am settled into my new home I would be great at extra-curricular training like nose work or agility classes!

I hate to use the dreaded phrase “project dog” but I am a special girl and if you give me a try to you will be rewarded richly.  My heart is pure and my love for you will make you melt.  Are you the right person for me?  Fill out an application at pixieproject.org so we can schedule a meet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $180 and I am currently in foster care.

- Grant Will Enhance Pixie’s Veterinary Assistance Program -

Portland, OR (June 16, 2014) – The Pixie Project (@ThePixieProject) announced today that they have received a $7500.00 grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust. The funds will be used to enhance The Pixie Project’s Veterinary Assistance Program.

In addition to their work as an animal adoption center, The Pixie Project provides veterinary services to Portland’s low income and homeless communities at The Scott Wainner Pixie Care Clinic.  This grant will help ensure that The Pixie Project can provide these services on a regular basis for the rest of 2014.  It will help cover the costs of surgical supplies, veterinarian technicians and the occasional veterinarian when volunteer veterinarians are not available. Services will range from emergency care, such as stitches and amputations, as well as basic veterinary care, including teeth extractions and tumor removal.  They will also provide preventative care.

“We are incredibly grateful to Banfield Charitable Trust to partner with us on this project.  Veterinary care is expensive, and very often people are asked to surrender their animal if they want it to receive care” says Amy Sacks, The Pixie Project’s Executive Director  “We believe that helping animals and keeping them in their current homes helps the already overloaded shelter system from becoming even more burdened.”

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 free and low cost veterinary services including spay and neuter surgeries for the pets of Portland homeless and low-income communities.
