The COVID-19 virus is having a big impact on businesses and nonprofits in our community and Pixie is no different. Even though our shelter is closed to the public, our everyday duties and expenses haven’t slowed down. We’ve been getting questions from our amazing community on how people can help our animals—below are some ideas!

**We currently have enough foster homes for both dogs and cats! When that changes (kitten season will be here before we know it), we will post an update! ** Volunteer orientation, training, and on-boarding are also on hold for the time being.**

How to Help!
Make a Donation:
 Requests for help are not slowing down. As people’s work hours are reduced, we’re already seeing more need for pet food, veterinary care, transfers from other shelters, and owner surrenders. If you’re able, making a one-time gift or becoming a monthly donor is the quickest way to help us help our community. You can donate directly through HERE.

Grab a Wish List Item (or shop through Amazon Smile): You can check out our Wish List full of items we use every day HERE.   Items are shipped from Amazon directly to Pixie. If you’re shopping for your family through Amazon, consider using the Amazon Smile program: it’s the same website and products, but by visiting smile.amazon.com instead, .5% of your total purchase amount is donated to Pixie. THIS LINK will designate Pixie as your charity automatically.

Support Local Restaurants…And Pixie! For our fall Pixie Party fundraiser, restaurant gift certificates are always our best sellers, often going for over their value in our silent auction! Since our local restaurants need your support too, consider buying a gift certificate and donating it to Pixie for our fall auction! Your favorite restaurants get the cash they need and donations to Pixie are tax deductible. It’s a chance to make a big impact with one purchase.

Share Pixie Posts: With the shelter being closed to the public, our pets could use a little extra visibility. Consider sharing posts on your timeline to let people know that we still have amazing animals looking for homes!

Thank you everyone for all of your help—and we’ll update you as soon as we have any new information. We’ll get through this together!
