In light of the changing COVID-19 situation in our area, Pixie will be operating by appointment beginning Tuesday (3/17/20). Staff will be available by email (, phone (503-542-3432), and will be checking voicemail during normal shelter hours.

**With staff working from home, please utilize email as much as possible!**

Adoptions and intake will continue to take place, but all appointments must be scheduled in advance—the shelter will not be open to the general public.

If you have an existing appointment at the shelter or in the clinic and you are unable to make it, please let us know! Surgery and intake spots are limited and if you’re not able to make your appointment, knowing in advance allows us to schedule another cat or dog in your place until we can reschedule you.

Currently, there is no evidence that pets become sick from COVID-19—infectious disease experts, as well as the CDC, OIE, and WHO indicate there is also no evidence to suggest that pet dogs or cats can be a source of infection, including spreading COVID-19 to people—but we also have a responsibility to keep our staff, volunteers, and community safe.

All of our animals (both at the shelter and in foster) will continue to receive the best care possible and we’ll be open again as soon as it is safe and sensible to do so. We’re lucky to have such an amazing Pixie family and we’ll get through this together! We will continue to provide updates as the situation develops.
