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 Douglas – the big, brown tabby looking for Love! I am an 11-year-old boy that is very playful. I will gladly chase toy mice around the house and keep myself entertained, whether the humans are there to play with me or not! I’m a pretty independent guy overall, but don’t get me wrong — I love people too! I’m a little bit on the bigger side and so am not necessarily a lap kitty, but that won’t stop me from cuddling next to you on the couch or finding your bed to sleep in at night. I like to be in the room next to you whenever you’re home, and wouldn’t at all mind if you needed to be gone at work all day. I’ll just entertain myself until you get home and we can Netflix and chill! I’m still new to my foster home and will sometimes watch from afar when new people come over, but it’s easy to coax me out because I’m so curious and will quickly warm up with treats and scratches! I’m a very handsome boy and very healthy as well — I’ve had recent bloodwork and a recent dental and have no special needs or diets at this time. I’d say I’m more “middle-aged” than senior! You certainly wouldn’t know I was a bit of an older gentleman if you met me. I have lived with dogs before and was not a fan, and although I’ve lived as an indoor-outdoor cat before, so far I seem perfectly happy in an indoor-apartment setting — especially during winter! I may enjoy a catio, porch, or backyard to lay in during the warmer months, but really I just need a dog-free home with a couple people to chill with and toys to chase! Do you think I could be the perfect fit for you? Let’s meet! I’m currently living in a foster home, so fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $80.

“High, Wide and Handsome” and that’s just not describing the treasure state itself, but me too! My name is Montana and I am a 1 year old 100% yellow lab weighing in at around a whomping 90lbs! I am big boy with and even bigger heart that I am ready to share with my forever family. My foster mom said I am easy to fall in love with and am a super affectionate pup. And I am pretty dang smart as well, and am already perfectly crate trained, walk really well on leash, and starting to getting the hang of “drop it” when playing fetch. But I could still use some of the basics and a BASIC TRAINING CLASS IS REQUIRED FOR MY ADOPTION. I just love hanging out with my doggy pals and my foster home has a few with lots of space that I get to run around all day. I can still be a little bit of a young doofus though and would do better as the only dog in the home or a older female who can teach me a few tricks. But hanging out with doggy friend at a Thousand Acres or going on a buddy hike would be right up my alley too! Because of my big size, I would love a yard to romp around in so apartments would be too small for me. I seem to ignore cats on my walks, so I could probably hang with a super confident and dog savvy kitty. And of course I just adore all my human pals over 10 that can handle my bounciness and big silly antics. Lovable, handsome, and hilarious, I am ready to start our adventures today! Fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $450

Greetings! My name is Salvador Dogi and can’t we all agree that my underbite is the cutest in all the land?! The name of course is taken after my favorite artist with that funny mustache (who I model my own whiskers after of course)! Going by the name Sal for short, I am a 5 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at around 12lbs. Just like my artist counterpart, I am an eccentric fellow who is always so happy go lucky and excited to meet new people! I am an energetic lad and I would love an active household, preferably with a yard so I can run around to my heart’s desire, but I am in foster in an apartment and do just fine with my daily walks too! I do well in playgroups with my doggy friends and am quite the silly guy. I am happy to meet my human pals over 12, but no kitties in my home please! After a long day of activity, I would love to curl up on the couch with you and catch some zzz’s. Overall, I am an excitable, hilarious, and silly guy who loves to play! There is nothing surreal about it, we are just simply meant to be! So fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

My name is Midnight, but my foster parents call me “Little Dude” because that’s just what I am! I’m a little guy! Especially when I stand next to my big foster sis’ and foster bro’!  I’m a 4 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at under 10 pounds. I can be very shy and sensitive at first, and as long as other people and dogs give me a little space in the beginning to build up confidence and trust, I do open up.  But it may take a few times meeting you and of course lots of those yummy treats! After that, I’ll probably follow you wherever you go because I like being part of the gang! In fact, I really need to have another doggy pal in the home to help me continue building my confidence and feel less anxious. I would prefer to be in an adult only owned home with no kids or plans for future kids. For the most part I like to lay around and take it easy, and am quite the homebody. So parties at the pub are not my jam, and would much rather Netflix and chill. At home I’m low maintenance, potty-trained and quiet as a mouse. However, I do enjoy short strolls around the block from time to time. Though I take some time to warm up, I am well worth the wait and very endearing. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300. *My adoption does require one in home training lesson with a certified trainer.

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.

–THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT; THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT KATE, PLEASE CONTACT HELEN AT THE PHONE/EMAIL BELOW–

My name is Kate.  I’m a sweet, petite girl about 13 years old.  I have gold eyes and long black fur with white shoes on all four feet and a white triangle on my chest.  I have a mild chronic palsy condition, probably a cerebellar dysplasia, that has not been progressive and does not require treatment.  My head just shakes a bit but not all the time.  

I’m shy but like to curl up in your lap if you will sit still long enough.  I love naps in the spot where the sun hits a chair or floor.  I’m calm and independent.  I’m quiet but like to nuzzle your ankles as you’re getting my food, just to remind you that I appreciate your efforts.  I’m an indoor kitty and small children or a dog would likely make me nervous but I’ve lived with another cat in the house and we are fine.  I love my cardboard scratcher, especially when it has been sprinkled with a little catnip.

I have veterinary records of lab (blood and urine) tests from a year ago and my person is willing to pay for updated testing.  I have been spayed, tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV and have received a vaccination against chlamydia.  I had a three year rabies vaccination in mid 2017 and I have been microchipped.  I do not take any medications.  My person, who is moving to a continuing care community, is happy to provide months worth of the foods I like, along with my favorite tent bed, litter box and toys.

If you are interested in meeting Kate, please call Helen at 503-791-4968 or email hwestbrook2860@gmail.com.  Kate will only go to a very good new home so there will be no adoption fee.

🎵  “We won’t go until we get some, we won’t go until we get some…” Figgy Pudding that is! I am an adorable 2 year old wiry Terrier/Chihuahua mix at around 11lbs. Scruffy, adorable, and down right hilarious, I am a spunky and energetic fellow always ready to play! With my adult human pals, I am a silly pup who is always on the go. I am definitely have a big terrier personality being both very confident and bouncy. This can make it a little tricky to make new doggy friends, but I have met a few play partners that seem to be a perfect playstyle for me. Being a young gun, I am still learning some of the basics and am very food motivated, so I could really benefit from a training class or lesson. I would love having a little yard to stretch my little legs and make me super happy! I love when the girls give me squeaky toys to play with or being in playgroup with a few doggy friends I have met here at Pixie. No kitties in my home please! Adorable, funny, and exuberant, it’s just not the holidays without the Figgy Pudding! So fill out an application on me today! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Bright, shiny, and super fun, don’t forget to break out the Tinsel this holiday season! I am a 1-2 year old Mini Aussie/Chihuahua mix weighing in at 7lb. You heard right, I have the personality of an aussie in a little Chi body. I am pretty darn adorable to say the least. I have a big personality and am a very young and energetic gal. Very bouncy and very playful, I am always down for having some fun. I am very social, but can be a little direct with my doggy play pals here at Pixie, so another tolerant and confident doggy in the home would be just fine. And since cats love to rip the tinsel of the tree, none in my home please! I just adore being around my human pals over 13 and we have so much fun playing with those squeaker toys! I would do best in an owned home with some room to stretch my legs. I am smart gal who is very food motivated and always down for learning more tricks! Overall, my sparkly cuteness is sure to grab anyone’s attention! So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.
