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!

Ready to meet your match? Visit our adoptions page to view cats and dogs ready for a new home!





Pete has been volunteering with Pixie since October and he’s already indispensable. He’s a great transport volunteer, helping to make sure that animals make it from rural shelters to Pixie safely. He’s so flexible and always has such a positive attitude, even when pick-up times change at the last minute. Having help getting animals means that we’re able to reach more pets and keeps the staff free to help with adoptions. Plus, just look at how he tamed Mimi!

Hi there! My name is Rudy Tootie and ain’t I a cutie? I am a 8 year old Kelpie mix weighing in at around 56 lbs. Being a native Texan, one meet with me and you can tell I used to be a working dog of sorts, as I always like to stay active, whether physically or mentally, and I am always quite alert. Though I can be quite strong, I am really a mushy guy when it comes to my human pals over 12 and do enjoy pets and cuddles ( after some activities of course!). I have met some dog pals here at Pixie that have really helped me learn how to play so another tolerant and confident doggy in the home would be perfect me to keep learning. Or I could be your shining star too! Either way I am ready to play! No kitties in my home please. Because of my working past, I really need an experienced, active household a bit outside the city, who can provide me with the proper mental and physical outlets to help me be the most comfortable and happy pupper!  I also need an owned home with some space to really stretch my legs and have fun with some fetch in the back yard. All in all, I am a happy guy eager to please and ready to start my adventures in the PNW. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Who’s that good looking blonde fella with smooth moves and amazing voice? Oh that’s just me, Justin Timberlake or JT for short. I am a silly little 2 year old chihuahua mix weighing in at only about 7-8lbs.  Don’t let my size fool you though. I may be small but I am a big hit with just about everyone I meet! Whether it’s other dogs, kitties or those human pals over 15, it’s always a pleasure to mingle with my fans. I am a pretty funny dude when I come out of my shell. In fact, my foster mom said that as soon as I got to her place, I instantly ran around the yard with the biggest smile on my face! I can be a modest at first and every once in awhile I still get stage fright, but my fellow doggy pals really help boost my confidence, and as long as they are on stage with me, I will perform my very best. So I would love to join a family who already has some furry friends who could join me in a duet! Though singing is what got me famous, in real life, I am a pretty quiet guy and not barky at all. So I am going to grab my suit and tie, and practice my moves so we can be NSYNC for our performance (Ha! Get it?)! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello there! My name is Obi-Wan and I am a cutie 4 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at 10 lbs. Don’t let my serious face fool you, I am just concentrating and using the force to help me find my new home! I am a Jedi master after all! But once you get to know me, I am actually a silly guy who loves to romp and play. Though I take a second or two to warm up, I am eager to bond and am very food motivated which helps to expose my fun true colors and  silly personality. I love to play with my fellow padawan pups and have met some new friends at Pixie. In fact, I tend to gain a lot of confidence around my fellow doggy friends and would be so happy to have a furry sibling! Preferably a female my size. Even those kitties could join our force against dark side. Once I come out of my shell, I am happy to bounce around with my adult human pals. Because I came from a more rural planet, a quieter neighborhood versus downtown is more my style. Silly, sweet, and full of fun, it’s plain to see that I am really the chosen one. So use the force, young jedi, to see that you belong with me! Fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi everyone!  My names is Sarah and you might recognize me as I am usually with my brother Kibbles. We thought we loved each other, but it took us being separated to help me see that I was much better off without him. In fact, I have gotten so much more confidence and am way less shy without my brother around (And he is doing much better without me too!). I am a sweet 11 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at around 15lbs. I can still be a tiny bit shy at first, but open up super quickly now. I am doing better about going outside on walks. But my ideal home would have a fenced yard I can mosey around in. I would love to be your shining star in the home, but would be ok with a chill mellow dog who isn’t super in my face. After all, I am in foster with 3 fellow chihuahuas! Since I am a bit older, I would love to retire into a home with lots of snuggles, cuddles and pets in a quirt adult only home. I am just a sweet gal blossoming into a much more confident lady who would love to have a home of her own. Will it be yours? Fill out an application today, so we can meet!  I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an up to date dental and bloodwork with an adoption fee of $250.

Bonjour! I am the great Napoleon, a big personality in a little Tuxedo package! I’m around 8 years old and a very fun and adorable lady cat that will bring lots of action and adventure into your life! I am so friendly and affectionate and cuddly and playful and on a mission to rule your heart. My strategies to Your World domination include lots of head butts, tapping your arm for attention with my big, polydactyl paws, and making biscuits in the air while laying on my back to emphasize my utter adorableness. I’m very playful and will gently meow to let you know I’m ready to chase and hunt a wand toy or mousey, providing loads of entertainment for all! I’d love to be with a family where I received a lot of attention, I could soak it up all day! I will ride around on your shoulder if you let me, and try to lure you in for belly rubs. Previously, I had access to the outdoors, however in my current foster home I seem pretty happy as an indoor-only kitty and would probably be very content as long as I was in a home where I received tons of attention and reasonable amounts of servitude, fit for an Emporer of my likeness. I’m no dictator though, I’m genuinely sweet and lovely and would do fine around kids and probably dogs as well. I’m not a huge fan of other kitties, so would most likely prefer to be your one and only feline. I know you love me already! Won’t you come meet me? I’m a special girl and can’t wait to meet my forever family and rule my kingdom. I’m currently living in a foster home, so please fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Bud

Aloha! My name is Bud and I am a 4 year old 40 lb Black Mouth Cur mix hailing all the way from the island of Kauai. I am a sweet boy with a big heart ready to share with a family to call my own. Not much is known about my history on the island, but you will notice I kind have a funny walk. And it’s not just me trying to do the hula! The vet says it is just a neurological thing I had ever since I was a pup, and that it doesn’t cause me any pain or stress. Just makes me extra lovable and special! That being said, I probably couldn’t do a home with a lot of stairs and am more of a couch potato than avid hiker. My current foster says I do great with her other doggy and that I would be happiest with another dog sibling in my home. And I get along just fine with the foster’s kitty too! I am a sensitive boy and the city is fairly new to me, so I am looking for a chill area with a nice big yard I can mosey in. My foster says I love hanging out in the yard, sunbathing and getting all the smells in. But my favorite thing in the world is my people over 12. I always want to be around them, getting lots of treats and pets. Sometimes I will even put my head in your lap to ask for some more head scratches! I am just a sweet soul who just wants to be loved. Like my favorite Disney movie says, “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” Will you be my ohana? Fill out an application, so we can meet ! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Who’s that itty pitty pocket pitty? It’s me, Bianca! I am a sweet as pecan pie 2 year old Southern Belle weighing in at around 45 lbs. My Texan charm and good looks draw everyone in, and I am always so happy and excited to meet my human pals over 8.  When I am not snuggling and sitting on your lap, you can find me rolling around with my doggy friends, In fact, I absolutely adore my furry pals, and am in playgroup with just about every dog at Pixie! My play skills have been complimented by everyone including the trainers, and I know all the right tricks to get even the nervous pups to play. No kitties in my owned home please! I am a very smart gal who is very food motivated, knows some of the basics and eager to learn more! I also tend to follow my nose and would be an excellent truffle hunting companion. Whether I am belly crawling, rolling on my back, or trying to be a lap dog, my silly antics are sure to make you smile. Aren’t we two peas in a pod?! Fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.
