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!

Here’s the sitch, my name is Hitch, and I am an adorable 7 year old Poodle/Terrier looking for my niche. Weighing in at about 20 pounds, my love for people knows no bounds. Super excitable and eager to meet you, I am always ready to add more people and pups to my crew! In fact, I need another doggy friend in the house, as it makes me feel like Mighty Mouse. Those kitties can join in as well, as my foster mom says I think they are really swell. My human pals over 10 are more my speed, and someone who can play and give me lots of love is what I need! I would do best in an owned home, with lots of room and a yard for me to roam. I really love being around you, so super long work days would make me sad and blue. I am very social guy who is eager to please and I am ready for an adventure, so grab the keys! Fill out an application today, so we can start our play. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Mike has been volunteering in our low-cost veterinary clinic since 2016 and is an absolute Pixie rockstar. If there’s something that needs doing, he’s on it—from training new clinic volunteers to caring for the pre- and post-op cats and dogs, from cleaning up messes to running errands. On top of that, he has the most amazing positive attitude and infectious energy, even on the most stressful days. 

For that, we’re absolutely thrilled to have Mike as our inaugural Volunteer of the Month. We’re so grateful for all of his help in keeping our low-cost vet clinic running smoothly. Thank you, Mike!

“Hey diddle diddle the cat and the Fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon.” In this case, I’m the Fiddle and I am a cute as all get out 2 year old Chihuahua mix around 13lbs. I arrived in Portland in pretty rough physical shape from Cali, but Pixie got me all fixed up and I have recovered beautifully! I am currently in a foster home with other doggies and I really seem to have a blast with them. And I am pretty scared of those kitties, so even a dog savvy cat would be ok in my home too! I am a pretty energetic guy who is excited to play! After all, I was on crate rest for awhile, so I am ready to get out and do some exploring. When I am not romping around with my doggy or human pals over 10, I am happy to settle into your lap and cuddle the night away. My foster said I would do best in an owned home and that I am a proper gentleman when it comes to being crated. But i could still use some of the basics as I am quite puppy like. Silly, sweet, and downright adorable, I am ready to start my adventures with my new family today! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi everyone! My name is Stella and I am sweet 9 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at about 10lbs. I am a friendly, sweet gal who is always eager to please. I can be a tad shy at first, but am quick to open up with a treat or two! While I do enjoy nice outings around the block, I am more of cuddle gal myself, and would happily join you for couch time cuddles. I enjoy hanging out with other mellow doggies like myself, and even have a bestie here named Joey. Even those kitties can happily join my crew! Being a quiet gal, I really love my hang out time versus being super active, but do have a wonderful playful side that is sure to make you laugh. I enjoy being around my human pals over 12, as long as they are down with some snuggle time! So grab your favorite blanket and pick out your favorite movie, and let’s get cozy. Fill out an application today! I come you vaccinated, spayed, 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. 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 $300. Interested in fostering me while I find my forever home? Email info@pixieproject.org

Hello! How do you do? My name is Henry and it is such a pleasure to meet you! I am an adorable 2 year old chiweenie at around 13lbs. I can be a little shy at first, but a quick walk around the block has me opening up in no time! I just love our walks and hikes so much that it really helps boost my confidence. You see, I originally came from a home who wasn’t very nice to me. Then a nice lady swooped in and gave me all the love and attention I could ever ask for. She sadly has passed away and I am looking for another family to share adventures with. I absolutely adore playing with my doggy friends and having another four legged pal in the home would be so great! I am pretty scared of kitties and stay away from them. Since I am a sensitive guy, I would do best in an active adult only owned home. After a long day of playing and hikes, it’s time for snuggle time on the couch as I burrow closer to you under the blankets. Cute, silly, and cuddly, I am ready to start exploring with my new family today! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.
