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 Liam the lovely and luxurious 5-year-old Maine Coon mix! I’m a big, fluffy, poly-dactyl kitty with a “large and in charge” personality that is looking for my next forever family. I am very active and playful and love to hunt my squeaky toys and chase after toy mice — I might even learn to play fetch if you tried! I’m definitely a very smart boy and want to explore everything — I’ll climb the tallest cat tree and explore all the nooks and crannies of my domain. Though I may not be much of a lap kitty (at 18 pounds, I’m a little big for that!), I always want to be near my human, checking out what they’re doing or asking for pets. Though I will flip over and show you my belly when I’m comfortable, that doesn’t mean I want you to pet it! Maybe once we become permanent family, you may one day earn that honor. I’m not a huge fan of being picked up yet either, and with my big strong paws, would probably do best in a home without small children. However, I am a people-lover and I also would love to have another furry friend in the home, whether it be a cat or — maybe even better — some dogs! I’m very confident and don’t shy away from new people, and given a little time, I think I’d absolutely love another animal to hang with. I was rescued as a stray and while I definitely don’t want to go back to an all-outdoor life, I would enjoy a little access to a backyard or catio — totally indoor apartment life has proven a little confining for me, and I definitely need room to stretch my legs. Do you think you may have the perfect place for me to enjoy the rest of my days? I’d love to meet you and make you the happiest kitty owner around! I’m currently 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 $100.

–THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; THESE CATS ARE NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THESE KITTIES, PLEASE CONTACT NATASHA AT THE PHONE/EMAIL BELOW–

I’m looking for a good home for my 2 kitties. Daenerys is female, 1 1/2 years old, & Problem is male, 8 months old. Both are domestic short hair cats and are spayed/neutered and up to date on all shots/dewormer. They need to be rehomed,  preferably together. Daenerys lost her brother to a thrombosis and suffered from severe depression & anxiety for quite a while after her brother died. She LOVES to be pet and play and she is not the type of cat that doesn’t want to be bothered and is content being near you all of the time. She likes her attention! Problem was a 2nd chance rescue from the Portland Humane Society originally coming from a home where he was beaten badly. It took me about 4 months of consistent reassurance to get him comfortable with humans again. My intent with the adoption of Problem was for them to be “emotional support” animals for each other. Daenerys tolerates Problem, and Problem wants to love on her all of the time. They play together and cuddle and sleep together, but Dany definitely lets him know when she does not want to be bothered. Problem will be just as happy to play, or to lay by your feet and sleep. They will come with thousands of dollars worth of cat toys, 3 cat trees, litter genie & litter box, window lounger, water fountains, and any leftover food and litter at time of rehoming. They also have vet plans at Banfield Pet Hospital. I pay $30/month total for the two of their plans. I can be reached via email atnmw1188@yahoo.com or by phone at 971-334-5279. Thanks for looking!

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.
