Pixie Party: November 23rd
Yale Union
(More Info Coming Soon)

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!

Walking down the runway in this season’s hottest couture looks (from Grrrberry to Jimmy Chews to Tommy Holedigger), I never get claps because I demand only Snaps! And that just happens to be my name! I am a Shih Tzu mix at about 12 years young, 10 lbs, and still looking fierce. You might notice rightaway that I am missing something-my eyes! After battling with some chronic eye issues, the vet decided it was best to remove my eyes to prevent anymore pain or pressure. And let me tell you, that surgery made me feel soooo good! In fact, my foster mom said I get along so great without seeing, that I can navigate most of the yard and the house with no issues. And she said I even got more spunky after recovery because how good I feel now. I am a whole new dog! I get along great with the other foster dogs and cats in the home, and would probably do best with another doggy to guide me. Though I am still quite spunky and love meeting all my fans, I would do best in a quieter environment with older kids over 12. My favorite spot on the couch is at the very end and though cuddles are my main interest, you can get still get some playful times out of me every now and again. Beautiful, vivacious, and sweet as can be, you don’t want to miss out on the fashion show of a lifetime. So sashay away and fill out an application on me today! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with a routine dental and bloodwork completed and a $300 adoption fee.

Hello! I am Rocky the flying squirrel! Well, maybe not an actual squirrel, but I run by you so fast I look like I am flying. I am a husky after all- Which means I am not only quick physically, but also quick witted too! At about 15 months old, I have a lot of energy and would love to find an active family who can give me both physical and mental stimulation. Needing a jogging pal? I am your guy! Interested in camping adventures? Happy to join you! Want to go for lots of hikes? Just lead the way! Whatever the activity, I am always eager and happy to join along with my people and other doggy pals by my side. I really am a sweet guy who loves getting attention from everyone. Which isn’t hard to do when you are this handsome! I even get along great with kiddos over 8 who don’t mind bouncy energy, and I would happy to join an active family who is ready to take on the energy level equivalent to, well, another kid! No kitties in my home please. In order to really get some space to stretch my legs, I need a home owned by my adopters. I am smart guy who is eager to please and though I know most of the basics, I am always happy to learn more! At the end of an activity or a long day, I do settle in and enjoy nice couch cuddles and belly rubs from my favorite people. I am just an affable, active, and adorable guy looking for a Bullwinkle to share my adventures with. Will it be you? Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hola! Mi llamo Tito and I am one cute cheech! That stands for Chihuahua of course! At about 3 years old and 8lbs, I am full of spunk and energy. Whether it’s zooming around the play yard fetching my favorite squeaker toys or playing hard with my doggy pals, I am a guy who is clearly on the go. I can be a little shy at first, but after a few treats and a toss of a tiny me sized tennis ball, I am all loosey goosey and ready to have some fun! Everyone says I am a nice guy and with a few extra manners, I could be a proper gentleman for sure! As you can see in my pictures, I am getting the hang of sit already. Being a quick learner, especially with those tasty treats, I will have some more basics and leash skills down pat. I came from a pretty rural area and everything here is pretty new to me. So my ideal home is in a quieter neighborhood in an owned home. A yard would be my dream, so we wouldn’t even have to worry about walks but could just race around the yard instead! I’m not a fan of cats, but I have made some doggy pals at Pixie. I can be a little overly playful, so another confident doggy who can teach me some etiquette would be so great for me! Fill out an application today, so we can get started on our fiesta! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Did my adorable puppy eyes draw you in? Oh good! They usually do the trick, but sometimes I have to flaunt my adorableness in other ways to get your attention. Hard to believe I was voted “Biggest Flirt” in high school-Ha! My name is Simone and I am a classy and just a tiny bit sassy 7 year old Chihuahua lady weighing in at 8lbs. My hobbies include shopping, walking around the town to greet all my admires, and most of all, cuddling with my human pals over 12! I am very much a people pup and really enjoy back scratches, belly rubs, lots of praise and attention, etc. I’m not one for sharing the limelight, especially with those kitties or big dogs, but would be happy to have another mellow doggy companion my size in my home. I am kind of used to always having someone around with me, so I would do best in an owned home and with a family who doesn’t have super long workdays. Overall, I am just a silly, cuddly, loving gal who is ready to flaunt her cuteness your way! So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

“Here’s your one chance Fancy — don’t let me down” — Reba crooned in my namesake song and I can promise that if you’re looking for a young, sweet, beautiful lady kitty, you will not be let down by me! Fancy’s the name and I’m just about 2-years-old. I don’t need much dressing up to steal hearts, my personality and gorgeous markings can take care of that in a second! I’m a darling little kitty that is very social with new people and curious and playful, too. I’m great with kids and am always looking for new friends to give me cuddles as well as toys to chase. If no one is around to play with me, that’s okay because I’ll just start a game of “chase the ball” all by myself — it’s adorable! I’d definitely be a really great family kitty and just like Reba, am sure to provide tons of entertainment and inspiration for my people. I didn’t come with any history at all so there’s not much to say about whether or not I’ll get along well with other dogs or kitties, but I would definitely make a fabulous companion for most any humans and would enjoy a home where I could receive a lot of attention. Don’t you think I’m just perfect? I’m ready to meet you! I’m currently living at Pixie, and would love to see you there soon! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

“Holly Olly Oxen Free” Here I come! My name is Holly and I am a super adorable and playful Chi/Terrier mix. I am about 2 years young and full of spunk! Not much is known about my history, but I came from a rural place in Oregon where little chi chi’s like me aren’t treated so well. In fact, I was living on the streets before my rescuer swooped in and gave me lots of love. I am a breast cancer survivor who has gained so much confidence while at Pixie. Since I am not used to the city just yet, sometimes traffic and areas with lots of people and doggies can be overwhelming and stimulating, and I would do best in a lower traffic area in an owned home. I have some great doggy play pals here at Pixie, and do best with those who are playful like me! No kitties in my home please. With my human pals over 13, I enjoy playing with squeaker toys, running around the yard, and ending the night with lots of snuggles. So fill out an application and we can start are playful games today! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, did you say you were look for a adorable, delightful pair of Jack Russell terrier mixes? Well look no further! My name is Athens and this fancy gal to the right of me is my ma, Georgia. We are two peas in a pod and fixin’ to find a plantation to settle in to and family to call our own. At 11 and 12 years young, we absolutely love going on afternoon strolls around the block, rolling in any grass we see, and soaking up the sun. I do have to warn you though, my Ma is slower than molasses sometimes. Ha! But we both love the outdoors and exploring! We have met some doggy pals at Pixie and though we just usually just hang out with them, we sometimes get spunky and flirty, and our playful side comes out. We would be ok with a dog savvy kitty in our home as well.  We are both delighted to meet any human pals that we run into on our walks, but since we are a bit older, we would do best living in a home with older kids over 13. With summer just starting, we are both yearning for a family to share our cuddles, love, and maybe some nice yummy BBQ with too! I’d reckon you best fill out an application today, so we can meet! We come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, fixed, with dentals for a total adoption fee of $350. Interested in fostering us while we search for our forever home? Email for more details!
