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!

Crawfish (tortoiseshell) and her brother Crawdad (tabby and white) are two super cuddly and people-oriented kittens that are siblings just around 5-months-old. They are extra special because they are polydactyl, which means they have extra toes — about 26 to be exact! These super social kittens will purr if you look at them, purr if you pick them up,  purr if you very lightly kiss their head, and then they don’t stop purring until they’re fast asleep on your lap! They love to cuddle close to their foster mom during bedtime and also love to snuggle together, which is just too adorable! Though they are very playful and love attention, they are well-behaved kittens that do well when their foster mom is at work all day — they’re ready to play when she gets home though, and love every single kind of toy they can get their extra-big paws on. They play together, individually, and with humans–da bird is the absolute favorite. So far, these fun little kittens have been very well-mannered, clean, and quiet. They have done very well around a medium-sized dog and would probably welcome another pet in the home, though they would do fine just having each other as well. They are also extremely floppy and great about being held, and would do just fine as family cats in a home with children and lots of activity.

Think these crustacean kittens are just what you need in your life? They are currently living in a foster home, so please fill out an application to meet them today! They come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a combined adoption fee of $243.

I am the adorable Ashley! I’m in extremely sweet little girl that is just around 2-years-old and eager to find my forever home. I’m a cuddly kitty that is fairly mellow for a young cat, and very quiet and easy to love. I have big, warm eyes that will welcome you to give me some pets and chin scratches, and when I’m really comfortable with you, I like to crawl into a lap for snuggles. I am just a smidge shy at first, and would probably really thrive in a quieter home, at least while I transition. My personality will shine in an indoor-only home with one or two people I can really bond with. I don’t have much experience around other animals, but I’m still young and could likely adapt to another mellow and respectful pet like me, or be perfectly  happy as your one-and-only kitty queen. I’m a petite kitty that is well-mannered and will make a really wonderful best friend and won’t at all mind living in a smaller space like an apartment. Think we could be made for each other? I sure hope you’ll come visit me soon! I’m currently residing at Pixie and come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

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.

Looking for a new Buddy? Well look no further-I’m your guy! I am a 7-8 year old mix weighing around 50 lbs. Mix of what you ask? Beats me! A little lab, a little shepherd, perhaps? Being from Texas, not a lot is known about my life before coming to Pixie. But I am such an outgoing and friendly guy, clearly someone socialized me well! You might notice that my eyes are little cloudy. Well I do happen to have limited vision, but it doesn’t slow me down at all! In fact, I still go on daily walks with the volunteers and even have a mellow doggy friend I hang out with in playgroup. The trainer says that I would be a good office dog, as I just love being around people. Sometimes I will even jump up and give them a big hug! Since I don’t have the best vision, I would do best in a home without a lot of stairs so I don’t take a tumble, older kiddos over 10, and potentially a chill dog sibling who won’t mind me bumping in to them a time or two. Overall, I am a very good boy whose cheerfulness brings instant joy to any room! Let me put a smile on your face today, as we share adventures and lots of cuddles! 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 Mia and I am a super cute 4 year old Cattledog mix weighing in around 45 lbs. I am such a delightful Southern Peach! See I am not used to this city life quite yet being from the rural South. I do ok on my daily potty walks, but I would feel much more comfortable with some space in a quiet neighborhood. I can take a second to warm up to new people, but with some time and some tasty treats, I will ask for more affection! Though I have made a few doggy friends at Pixie, I would get overwhelmed by places like dog parks. In the home, I would do best with a confident male dog friend and no cats. Being a sensitive lady, I am looking for an adult only home owned by my adopters. A little bit of patience and lots of positive training is all I need to fully blossom. And in return, I will give you lots of love and happiness! 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.

I’m the adorable Flannel, here to keep you warm during the winter and beyond! I’m a 2-year-old sweetie that is very out-going and full of playfulness and personality. I’m pretty well socialized to other animals so would probably make a nice companion for someone that already has a furry friend, but I’m also perfectly happy as your one-and-only. I’m pretty flexible! I came to Pixie after having kittens but am ready to be done with mom life — I’m still young and just out of kittenhood myself, and I’m very gentle so would love to find a human family of my own and maybe some human children to entertain me! That being said, I’m not super high energy, and would probably do great in an apartment setting — I’d just be ready for some serious snuggles when my person got home from work. I’m a cuddly kitty and I’m adorable, too, so I’m really just the whole package. Are you in the market for a new Flannel? I’d love to meet you! I’m currently residing at Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd & Burnside, and come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Moxie started out as a feral kitten found in a wood pile in Albuquerque, NM. By the time she was rescued she was the only one of her litter that survived so she is a little shy at first but she loves to cuddle so she warms up fast. 

She is now 9 years old and is a healthy and incredibly sweet cat. She is still very playful and likes to pick things up with both paws and fling them into the air. She is fine with other cats or dogs, however, she does seem to be more herself when she is the only cat (less shy). She is an indoor cat and loves to sit on your lap or in a window to watch birds. 

We are very sad to have to give her up but we are moving abroad mid December and cannot bring her with us. She really deserves a forever home.

For more information (or to find out the funny story on how she got her name) please call or text Shembi at 213-880-6295.
