Pixie Party!
November 23rd at Yale Union
More Info

The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue located in the heart of Portland, Oregon.

At Pixie, we make animal adoption and rescue a fun, family friendly, and positive experience. Our dedicated staff focuses on finding life-long matches between pet and adopter and takes a hands-on, personal approach to each and every adoption.

Pixie is committed to keeping pets healthy, happy, and in their homes for life. Our on-site clinic offers low-income and homeless pet owners access to vital veterinary care and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, keeping pets out of shelters and saving lives.

Our philosophy at Pixie is simple and unique: find the perfect pet for each person or family. At Pixie we’re not about getting animals out the door, we’re about getting pets into lifetime homes. Sometimes the “right” pet is waiting for you, and other times you may have to search for a while before your canine or feline soul-mate arrives. We promise, it will be worth the wait!

I am Dyna, a sweet, mellow, middle-age cat looking for a new home. I have lived with the same family and one other cat all my life but am not familiar with dogs.  I have very soft fur and two adorable black dots on my nose.  I’m shy at first but will warm up to you given a bit of time. I love belly rubs and will head butt you if I don’t get enough attention. I enjoy being held and sitting on your lap. I am not a picky eater but I will meow when I’m hungry. I’m content to stay indoors but I also enjoy lounging on the sunny patio and exploring the back yard – sometimes catching a critter. I don’t care for loud noises. I’m in fabulous health and am an overall low-maintenance girl that would be perfect for someone who needs a loveable friend to come home to. I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped.

Please contact Janet at  dyna@gordonv.net  with any inquiries.

My name is Willow, and at 9-years-young, I am beyond sweet and just so cuddly! You won’t believe my age when you meet me, not only because of my petite size, but also because of my energy and playfulness — I’ll remind you of an adorable kitten. I love to follow my foster mom around, and she calls me her little shadow. If I’m not asking for cuddles, I’m asking to play! I like to bring my rainbow dancer to her so she can waive it around for me to chase, and I also love looking outside to enjoy natural kitty TV. Mostly though, I am a cuddle monster. I warmed up to my foster parents right away and I’m never shy around strangers. Though I have a big personality and am very playful, I’m also a gentle girl and would most likely do just fine around children, making me a great candidate for a family cat! I came to Pixie with my sister, but quickly made it clear that I was no longer interested in sharing my kingdom with any other feline friends. I am all the kitty you need in your life, since I will ask you for all of your attention and provide endless entertainment! I have never been outside and would be very content as an indoor-only kitty. I would love a home where I received lots of attention, and I promise to return that attention with endless love and smiles — I’m really easy to love! Don’t you think I’m just darling? I’m currently living in a foster home, so I hope you’ll fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Remy here! Don’t you think I’m stunning? I’m a gorgeous 3-year-old girl with a very round face, big eyes, and soft bunny fur. I was rescued as a stray kitty many months ago by a Good Samaritan who would’ve loved to have kept me if it weren’t for the pets they already had, and it’s easy to see why! I’m a very lovey kitty that is very social and will quickly roll over and purr for attention. I enjoy being brushed and it helps keep my already silky fur nice and plush! I haven’t been at Pixie long, and I’ve already come out of my shell and am very curious and confident. Currently, I’m residing in the Pixie cattery around other kitties and they don’t bother me much, so I know I’d be alright in a home with other pets. I mostly keep to myself around the other kitties, but once a person walks in the room, I’m all about it! My demeanor is very gentle and I think I’d make a really wonderful family kitty, since I’m very sure of myself and would be okay around children. Even though I was originally found outside, once I was allowed inside I didn’t really have any interest in going back out there, so I think I’d be perfectly fine spending the rest of my days enjoying the posh life of the indoors! And even though I’ve got an adorable little cranky meow, don’t let that fool you — I’m a happy girl that is always down for a cuddle. I hope you’ll come meet me soon! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Snuggle is a 12 year old dark male tabby but still very playful. He loves running with fluffballs in his mouth around. He also loves the company of other four legged cat friends or human friends. Yes and also dog friends. Sometimes he even wants to sit on your lap. 

Romeo is a 4 year old real lover. He loves walking up to visiting people, greeting them with his mellow meow. He loves your attention and the company of other four legged cat and dog friends and human friends. He can also be your TV buddy and sofa lounger. He also is a supervisor when you are at the computer. He also headbutts and is demanding your love, just like a Romeo. But sometimes he loves chasing and playing with the laser.

Snuggle and Romeo are friendly with each other, but could be re-homed separately as they are not bonded.

I am the teeny little Kiwi! I’m an absolutely darling 1-year-old girl that is so cute, you are certain to fall in love instantly. I was a young mama kitty that came to Pixie with my kittens, and now I’m ready to find my own family! I’m a very good-natured kitty that was fostered by a family with children for awhile while I was still nursing my kittens, and they had nothing but wonderful things to say about me. I’m a very snuggly girl that loved to sleep in bed with them and also a very playful girl! Even though I’m small, weighing in at just 6.5 lbs, I’ve got a lot of personality to make up for it! I’m all about my people and would always run straight for them whenever they’d walk in the door. I’m also used to being around other animals and should do just fine with another respectful cat or dog, so long as I was given a little time to adjust to them. I’m perfectly happy being an indoor kitty, although I’m young and still relatively active, I’d just enjoy a lot of playtime and attention whenever you’re home… and snuggles — LOTS of snuggles! I know I will make one lucky family a very loving and entertaining companion, and you’ll never get over how adorable I am! I hope you’ll come meet me soon! I’m currently residing at Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd & Burnside, and come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Hi! Hello! My name is Emma and I am sweet and happy 2 year old Bassett Hound/Jack Russell Terrier mix weighing in at around 26 lbs. I am a low rider, but that doesn’t stop me from having fun! With my puppy like energy, I am a happy girl doing whatever, whether it’s wrestling with my other doggy friends or going for walks around the block, or joining you on your hiking adventures. Whatever it is, I am up for the task and will be super excited just to be joining you. I could still learn some of the basics, but am a quick learner and with some tasty treats, you can be sure I will get some of these tips and tricks down pat. I am very enthusiastic about meeting everyone and I would prefer to be in a home with older kiddos over 12 since I can still be a bit bouncy. My kitty friends don’t understand my exuberance, so no cats in my homes please. Though I am a smaller gal, I am from the South, so an owned home is more my jam where I can stretch my legs and just more space to sprawl out and do my bucking bronco happy jumps during play time. Silly, cute, and energetic, this “low rider, is the one to meet”.  So fill out an application today and we can get started on our play! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello everyone! My name is Oscar. Ha, no no, not Oscar Isaac. I do get mistaken for him all the time. I think it’s my handsome mug and scruffy hair that draws people in! But enough about my good looks. I am a 2 year old terrier mix weighing around 12lbs. I am a go with the flow kind of guy and all it takes is a tasty treat for me to quickly warm up and then I am ready to join you on your walking adventures!  I am a social butterfly once I get to know you, and I love to play with my doggy companions and my human pals over 12. Cool, calm, and collected, I am easy going gent who is sure to make you smile with my adorableness and funny antics. When I am not playing with my toys, you can find me curled up on the couch next to you, enjoying some nice pets and just relaxing the night away. Will my acting entertain you and win the Golden Globe that is your heart? Fill out an application today, so we can find out and get started on our movie of a lifetime! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

The time has come (unfortunately) for me to find a new home for my beloved cat, Precious. With all the travel and my upcoming housing change, I am no longer able to be a good cat mommy. She has been mine since 2009 and I am incredibly sad to let her go. 

She’s a spayed indoor cat (approx 15 years old) who doesn’t like other cats but did tolerate the one large dog she lived with several years ago. She’s very shy and anxious around new people and loud noise, so I’m looking for a “Grandma” environment – a calm house and an owner who is home a lot-ish to give her the love and attention she craves. She is in excellent health for her age (no medications or ailments – clean bill of health from Blue Door Veterinary Services on 8/13/19), is very spry and LOVES to play. She is very loving and affectionate and, after a period of feeding her and gaining her trust, she will warm up to you. I have all the cat things you’ll need, plus a bunch of food to hand over. I’m very protective of her and want to find the best living situation possible. She does have a HomeAgain microchip but it was (unfortunately) never registered, meaning I am not sure where the previous owner (she has only had 1 owner besides me) adopted her from.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. My email address is kyleen115@gmail.com. Precious is such a wonderful cat – you are sure to fall in love, just as I have. Thank you!
