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!

Haley’s the name! I’m a super petite little 1 & 1/2 year old girl with a ton of playfulness in one tiny package. Not only am I very sweet with people, and quick to curl up next to you or crawl in your lap when I’m comfortable, but I also am super friendly with other kitties! Whenever a new kitty is introduced to the Pixie cattery, I’m usually the first one to run up and give them some kisses and nose boops — it’s just so cute! I also absolutely LOVE to play, and will run around and chase or wrestle with whatever kitty will allow it. After playtime, I get very serious about naps to recharge and will be quite snuggly when I’m settled down. I have an adorable little chirp of a meow and will sometimes mew my approval when you’re petting me or spin around and dance when it’s time to eat — I’m just too cute! While I’d love a household with another kitty to snuggle, mostly I just can’t wait to find a home where I’ll get lots of playtime and toys to chase. I’m a small girl that would be okay in a smaller setting so long as there was lots of enrichment and stimulation, and I have no need to go outside — just windows to watch the birds from. I hope to meet you soon, so come on down to Pixie and visit! I come to you fixed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated for an adoption fee of $100.

“And the Oscar goes to…” Will it be you? At 80lbs and 1 year old, my award winning smile has captivated audiences all across the country! Hailing for Mexico, I came here as a small pup and I instantly fell in love with the PNW. Being a big lab guy who is full of energy, I am what you call a classic baby huey in that I am still learning some basic manners and have a sweet and dopey personality. Though I have already started learning the basics, such as crate training and walking on a gentle leader, I can still be a bit bouncy so more training is a must for my adoption. The trainer even thinks I would be a great agility dog or sporting dog with the appropriate positive training! Being so active, I need appropriate mental and physical stimulation throughout the day, but in the evening, I am ready to settle in asking for belly rubs and cuddles on the couch. Since I am bigger gent, I really need an owned home with some space to romp around and a home with older kiddos over 14.  I do enjoy playing with my doggy pals, and a would love to live with a confident female pup who still wants to play but who can also teach me some manners. I just get so excited and bouncy when meeting me new friends! I live with cats now, so a confident dog savvy kitty would be ok. Handsome, dashing, and full of fun, let’s get started making our own adventure movies today! Fill out an application and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

“Later Gator!” Wait! Don’t leave yet. The fun is just getting started! My name is Gator and I am a 9 month old Doxie weighing in at 16 lbs. Besides being a energetic and happy go lucky guy, I am also silly and playful, wanting to always be on the go! I can be quite forward in my greetings with other dogs and a confident adult doggy friend could really help me learn some of the basics. They say I suffer from attached sibling syndrome which just means I was kept with my litter mates too long and now I just need some extra socialization and training, so I can learn some manners. Not cats in my home please! Being an excitable guy, I am always bouncy and raring to go on my daily walks around the block. Of course I am all about playing fetch with those squeaker toys too! My ideal environment would be an adult only owned home with experienced adopters who are patient and have the extra time to spend on my training. AN OBEDIENCE CLASS OR LESSONS ARE REQUIRED FOR MY ADOPTION! Being food motivated and eager to please, this should be lots of fun! Full of pep, I am ready to take the next step in becoming you furry friend. So fill out an application and we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Snoopy and I am a 6 year old Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix weighing 12 lbs. Being a terrier mix, I am full spunk and energy! A lot of times people think that means I need a lot of physical activity, but sometimes I really just need some mental stimulation too! I would be a great candidate for nosework games or interactive food toys and puzzles. Being very treat motivated, I catch on to things pretty quickly. Though bigger dogs are scary to me, I like to play with the little guys my size. I am forward greeter, but always end up being flirty! No kitties in my home please. Being such a people lover, I am always eager to greet my human pals over 8, and of course always down for some play! Fetch, anyone? I do great on my daily walks as long as I have plenty of distance from larger doggies who might give me a scare. Apartment life isn’t for me, and nice little yard or space to get the zoomies in would be ideal. Though I can sometimes be aloof, if you offer the attention first, I am all for it! Silly, cute, and a bit awkward, I am a fun guy who can’t wait to share adventures with my new family! So fill out an application and we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Val

Hi! My name is Val, but my foster calls me Valerie. Big, bold and beautiful and at 13 years young, I am a Min Pin weighing in at 25 lbs. I am a pretty mellow gal who enjoy butt scritches and cuddles on the couch. In fact, if you stop petting me, I will gently paw at you for more! Though I am mostly about snoozing and staying warm under the covers, I am trying to stay active and really enjoy my afternoon strolls around the block and running around exploring the yard. And my foster says that sometimes I will even try and get one of her bigger doggies to play! I am still just as vivacious and spunky as ever.  In fact, I am currently on a weight loss plan to get back in shape to keep up with those young’uns! I am excitable gal always eager to meet dogs, kitties, and new people over 12. Also, I should mention that I technically can’t really jump on the couch anymore but I always get a head start and my foster mom helps me the rest of the way. So a home with a lot of stairs wouldn’t be the best fit. When I am not snuggling up with you on the couch, you can find me playing with my stuffies. And oh boy, do I love my toys. Even at 13, you can’t get this girl to stop playing which is a perfect exercise for me! Hilarious, cuddly and oh so cute, is this Val your perfect gal pal? Fill out an application today and we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with routine bloodwork and a dental and an adoption fee of $350. 






Did someone order a grande Cappuccino and a tall Latte? Well here we are! The perfect little espresso beans here to make sure you have a brew-tiful day! We are both chihuahua terrier mixes with Latte being 6 years old and 8lbs, whereas I, Cap, am 11 years old and 16lbs. We are like two coffee beans in a pod and are looking for a home together. Being quiet and sensitive, we are looking for a mellow adult only household with someone who loves cuddling as much as we do! I am always eager to run up and greet you, though Latte can take a second to warm up to the optimal temperature. We are both into snuggles and would probably enjoy walks in  a low traffic area or running around in a fenced yard. We have met some doggy friends here at Pixie and though we are very tolerant, we would love to be your only coffee choices in the home. Latte does have cherry eyes that will be fixed in an upcoming surgery, but other than that we are both in good shape and have been fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and even had routine dentals! Coffee and friends are the perfect blend, so fill out an application for us today. Our total adoption fee if $350. Interested in fostering us while we find our forever home?

Greetings Earthlings! I come in peace! My name is Mars and I am a 4 year old Chihuahua mix weighing just 7lbs. I am just an adorable martian looking for a family to share my loves and cuddles!  I can take a second to warm up to my adult human friends, but once I do, all I want is to be your companion and join you on walks and naps on the couch. My fosters say that even though I am small, I still am able to go on a few long walks and have even gone a few miles at a time! I am a go with the flow type of guy and am just happy to do whatever you are doing! Right now, I am in foster with really polite bigger doggies and though I am starting to open up and play with them, I might feel a bit better romping around with doggies my own size. In fact, other pups give me a boost of confidence and so I would really want to have some furry siblings in my new family. And I would be happy to have a confident kitty in the home as well. I’m not super into the crunchy treats, but I can’t say no to those meat things, what do you call them, hotdogs? Yeah, those are super tasty! My fosters say I have been a wonderful doggy with perfect house manners, so its clear I must have been in a home before. I am just an out of this world happy and mellow guy who enjoys being with my favorite friends both human and animals. Am I your favorite martian? Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet and find out! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi! Hello! Now that I have gotten your attention, I have a joke for you. Why did the cowboy adopt a dachshund? To get a Long  Little Doggy! Ha! I am always cracking jokes because I love being happy. My name is Ella and I am a 5 year old dapple dachshund weighing around 12 lbs. Being a classic doxie, I am like a fun sized energy bar ready to be on the go! I enjoy my daily walks around the block with the volunteers at Pixie and am always down for a game of fetch with some of my favorite toys. Well, still working on the fetch part of it. But I just need your help and some treats, I am sure I will get the hang of it in no time! I am very confident, maybe too confident, with my other dog pals and I tend to be forward in my greetings. Though I am not a dog park dog, I would be happy to have a romp session with a doggy sibling or friend who can handle my intrusive playstyle. I seem to very interested in playing with cats, so a confident younger dog savvy kitty would be ok too. I am excited to meet my human pals and would do best living with older kiddos 13 and up. Silly, sweet, and full of personality, I am ready to make you laugh today! So fill out an application and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.
