Due to the up-tick in adoption interest and high volume of intake requests, we are not always able to post our available cats. We are still taking cats in and reaching out to potential adopters who have submitted applications as they become available. Our application gives adopters the opportunity to let our adoption staff know what you’re looking for, and we’re happy to help you find your perfect match! If you are interested in adopting a cat (or kittens), we encourage you to fill out our general adoption application and email it to info@pixieproject.org. As soon as we receive it, our adoption staff will get back to you within 1-2 business days to make suggestions and set up a meet-and-greet appointment at that time.

Who is that adorable doggo with the cute permanent puppy face? Well that handsome gent is me, Blaze! And believe it or not, at 33lbs, I am actually closer to 2 years old though my looks and personality remind most of a young puppy. I am a pretty energetic lad who LOVES being around my other dogs friends. I could play with them for hours! I am still learning when to take breaks, so I might be too annoying for older dogs. So a confident dog friend who likes to play but can also teach me some manners would be ideal and needed in my home! When I first arrived at Pixie from Texas, the hustle and the bustle of inner city living was just so overwhelming and I wasn’t a fan of going outside. Thus, a house in a quieter low traffic neighborhood or suburb can help me gradually practice my leash skills and just be more comfortable for me overall. Having another dog as the leader, really helps me open up since I can be a sensitive guy at first, so being able to watch them confidently roll down the street may help me come out of my shell as well!  Being a Beagle mix, I do love those tasty treats, which will help with my basic training. TRAINING CLASSES/LESSONS ARE REQUIRED FOR MY ADOPTION! I am pretty quick to open up to my human friends over 12 and am instantly a bouncy ball of energy ready to play. Cute, sensitive, and silly, I am eager to find my family and starting playing with my new doggy sibling today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi! Hello! I am the lovely, lively and loony Lulu! An adorable house hippo weighing in at 67lbs. Ok, so I am not an actual hippo I suppose. Technically more of a 5 year old pit/Hound mix if you ask the experts. But I am a snuggly pitopotamus for sure! I am a silly gal who tends to match the energy of the room. So if it is really loud and energetic, I tend to get really overstimulated and kind of bounce off the walls, and am a bit mouthy and jumpy. But in a quiet and calm environment, I am very easy going, relaxed, and overall just feel much much better! So a quiet house in a low traffic area is definitely what I am looking for. I am very social and happy to meet new doggy and people friends. Since I sometimes tend to get over excited, I would do best in a home with older kiddos over 14. And if there is an another dog sibling around my size, that’s just fine. As long as they are chill and can help teach me how to take breaks during playtime. No kitties in my home please! My fosters say I really enjoy my daily walks and loving being with my people. I can be a little bit of a velcro dog in the beginning, but am very food motivated which helps with training and once I get all settled, I am a bit more independent. But who doesn’t love belly rubs?! Am I right? Quirky and cute, I am a sweet companion who would love to be with you! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Oh hi! My name is Rufus though they call me Rufus the Goofus because I am just a silly and lovable gent! At 10 years young and 55lbs, I am still a very playful Lab/Cattledog mix with a love of pets and an extreme love of food and tasty treats!! I am a happy guy eager to meet my human pals and other doggies too. In the home, I would prefer to live with kiddos over 15 and because I am little too interested in kitties, no cats in my home please! Though I am still quite spunky, I do have some old man hips and with the help of some pain meds, I have been feeling great. But I would probably have a hard time in a home with a lot of stairs, so a place with easy access to outside would be better for me. And though I would still probably try and go on 5 mile hike, short walks would be more ideal. I do still enjoy playing with my toys, with my favorite being two ball fetch!  I am still working on the “drop it” part, but with me being pretty food motivated, I will be easy to train! And forget what they say about not being to teach an old dogs new tricks. It’s a total lie and with your help, I can show you all that an old dog can actually do! I am an easy going chap who is very friendly and always down for some hang time with my favorite peeps! So let’s get to chillaxing and relaxing together today. Fill out an application so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350. 






With my frosty face, I am a total treat. I’m the sweetest Dunkaroo you will ever meet! My name is Duncan and at 14 years old, I am ready to settle down, retire, and live out my days with lots of cuddles and treats. I am just the friendliest gent ready to greet all my new human and doggy pals with lots of kisses! At my fosters, I enjoy toiling around the yard and seem to be much happier with another dog friend around. Not necessarily to play, but just be my companion! What can I say, I just like to be surrounded by all my friends. I have met the office kitty at Pixie and I was pretty interested in saying hi. So I could maybe live with a super confident and dog savvy cat. I am still quite spunky and overall am just a happy camper down to do whatever together! I would do best in a house without a lot of stairs and easy access to outside. Since I am a mellow guy looking forward to spending our days together, I would do best with a family who wasn’t gone long work hours and can shower me with lots of attention! Fill out an application today to set up a meet. Pixie has provided a lot of medical work to get me feeling good and so I am neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines with recent bloodwork and an adoption fee of $150.

Oh hello! It is nice to meet you! My name is Zuri and I am a cutie 4 year old Rottweiler mix weighing in at 58lbs. As you can tell in my pictures, I am very soft doggy who enjoys the company of other dog friends. In fact, I am a little bit of a follower myself, so having another confident dog in the home to take the lead would help me come out of my shell a bit faster. You see, they think that someone back in my past wasn’t very nice to me and so I am a little bit reserved and sensitive with new people and new situations. But if you just let me come up to you first and snag some of those tasty hotdogs, I quickly open up. Then you can see what a happy and bouncy pup I really am! When I was at Pixie, the bustling traffic outside was very scary to me and I didn’t really enjoy my walks. But when I got into my foster home with lots of space, I instantly felt more comfortable! So a house in a quieter area would be ideal. I’m not a type of doggy who would like to do lots of new things or go to a bunch of new places, but might be able to do a lesser known not so crowded hiking trail. Especially with a doggy sibling who can lead the way! Running around in the backyard is ideal too. I don’t seem to have any prey drive and could do a home with a dog savvy cat. I do open up to my human friends over 12 and really enjoy playing fetch! I am just a sweet gal looking for a patient and mellow home with a family who can give me lots of love, which is something I don’t think I have really had much of in the past. Fill out an application today to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Beauty. Grace. Elegance. And hair for days! My name is Sasha and I am a gorgeous 11 year old Sheltie weighing in at 15lbs. I am a happy gal with a super sweet personality who loves to snuggle and get lots of pets. What can I say? I love to be loved! I am super social with everyone I meet as well as my dog and cat friends too. I am a pretty simple lady in that all I really want is a nice home where I get lots of attention. Oh yeah-and lots of treats too! I am a gal enjoying her retirement years and though I enjoy brisk walks in the neighborhood, I am not really one for lots of bustling activity.  I do, however, seem to enjoy car rides, so I bet I wouldn’t mind a nice little day trip to the beach or joining you on a picnic in the park! But a nice day curled up next to you on the couch is great too! I am just happy to be with my people. You see, I  have this lump on my leg that is unfortunately more than your average old dog lumps and bumps. Pixie is determining if can be removed with surgery. But even if it can’t, I am still a happy girl full of life who desires a loving home with a family to call my own. Someone who will help me check off all the things on my bucket list. Someone who will pamper me and give me the very best. Someone who will let me lick the last of the peanut butter out of the jar or steal all the covers in the middle of the night. Someone who can be my companion and friend until the very end. Is that someone you? Fill out an application today or email info@pixieproject.org for more information.

Oh hi! Didn’t see you there. Well that may be because I don’t really see much at all. But I don’t let that get in my way and seem to adapt to new environments quickly! My name is Greg and I am a sweetie pie 12 lb poodle mix. At 12 years young, though I am mostly about the sleepy and cuddle times, I do love to occasionally play with my toys! I will happily bring it over to you to throw and since I can’t really see where it lands, I have to use my mighty nose to sniff it out! My fosters say it’s pretty darn cute. Since I am not the young hiker that I used to be, walks aren’t really my style. So instead my amazing foster parents carry me out to my potty spot and I immediately go, and then it’s back inside for another cuddle session! I am a social guy who doesn’t really mind being around other mellow cats and dogs, and I am always happy to greet new human friends. Though I still have a fun and feisty side, I am mostly a mellow fellow, and am looking for a quiet retirement home with someone who can give me lots of love! And I of course, will give you lots in return! In fact, when you get home from work or running errands, I will always excitedly greet you at the door flipping on my back for some belly rubs. I still have that spunk after all! Playful, silly and easy going, I am just a nice gentleman looking for a cozy lap to rest my head as we cuddle the days way! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chip with an adoption fee of $300.
