Hello! Sissy here, and I am just the silly gal you been waiting for! At around 7-8 years old, I am a hilarious and adorable MinPin mix weighing about 9lbs. When I first came to Pixie, I was a little sad since my owner passed away and was a bit nervous. But as soon as I went into a foster home, I opened up quickly! Especially with the help of my doggy friends. In fact, I have always been around dogs most of my life, and they give me a little confidence boost I need. Plus, having friends to run around with is so much fun, and thus I am really looking for a home with another fur friend. It’s just really helps me adapt to new things to have a pal to follow. I didn’t really seem too interested in the office cat at Pixie, so a dog savvy kitty would be fine. After coming out of my shell, I am quite the energetic lady and even my snuggles start off with a body slam. My foster thinks it is pretty cute and hard to resist, and so she always stops what she is doing to give me more snuggles. I am still a pretty sensitive lady and can take a second to warm up to new people, and would do best in a home with kiddos over 12. When I was at Pixie, I did really seem to enjoy my walks outside and now in my foster home, I really enjoy running around the yard while soaking up the sun. Goofy, sweet, and full of personality, I am ready to play with my family and doggy sibling today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Horton and I am a 10 year old Lhasa Apso. Can you guess what my favorite book is? It’s Horton Hears a Who, of course! Though I am not as big as my elephant counterpart, I do have a giant heart full of love to share with new friends. Not to mention my superb hearing which really comes in handy since I am slightly vision impaired. My foster thinks I might be able to see big movements or shadows, and can anticipate when a curb is coming but other than that, I rely on my other senses to really get the lay of the land. It can take me a second to get used to new environments, so having to move around a lot and get familiar with new places would be a bit difficult for me. Instead, I would be much happier staying in house setting without a ton of stairs (I can manage a few stops at a time), that I can live out the rest of my retirement years in. My lack of vision doesn’t really seem to slow me down when it comes to play. In fact, I absolutely love playing with my toys and bringing them around with me. Tennis balls seem to be my favorite, but the soft squeaky toys are fun too! I am a pretty great walker as well. When I was at Pixie, the staff said the first time they took me on a walk to the park up the street, as soon as I hit the grass, it was instant zoomies! I have always been in an environment with lots of other dogs and even a few kitties, so I am pretty easy going when it comes to having mellow fur siblings in my home. Because of my limited vision, a busy household with a lot of people in and out would not be ideal, and just be a bit overwhelming for me. But in a quiet setting, especially when there are some toys to play with, I easily open up to my human pals over 12. Watching me blossom puts so much joy in the people’s hearts around me, especially after being deprived of a lot of things first growing up. Thus, it’s the little things like the grass between my paws or a tiny who in whoville that I appreciate and enjoy the most.  And I would so love to share these experiences with my forever companion today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with recent bloodwork and a dental, with an adoption fee of $350.

Ciao Bella! Buongiorno! Pleased to meet you you. My name is Bella and I am a 6 year old cattledog mix who is as sweet as a cannoli! At 47 lbs, I am an adorable meatball with a big heart who is very affectionate. When I see new people, I get so excited to say hi and as soon as they start the pets, I plop down in side saddle mode and enjoy the attention. In the home, I would enjoy being with kiddos 12 and up. Though I really enjoy being outside on my walks, I am a bit environmentally sensitive which just means that busy areas with either lots of foot or car traffic can be a bit overwhelming. So I am not a big fan of downtown, but wouldn’t mind a nice quiet neighborhood or suburb where there is less going on. I am a very chill and go with the flow kind of gal. I will take pets over playing with toys, and curling up on the couch or sunbathing in the yard are my favorite activities! No kitties in my home please. I have met a few dogs here at Pixie and can be a bit selective with my friends, but I wouldn’t mind hanging with a confident mellow pal. I am more of a people dog anyways. I mean why play with other dogs when you can get belly rubs and tasty treats?!  I am just a happy and silly gal full of cuddles and snuggles to share with my new best friend today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped. and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Who is dashing, charming, has a great smile, and totally rocks a leather jacket? It’s Stamos of course! That’s my name and being handsome is the game. At 3 years old and 22lbs, not much is known about my exact breed mix, but based on my personality, the best guess would be a Min Pin/Beagle mix. I am a seriously playful dude with love of squeaky toys and tennis balls. I lived with another dog most my life and having a play buddy around not only helps me get out some extra energy, but helps me increase my confidence out in the world. Being from a more rural area in the South, high traffic areas are a bit overwhelming. But in a quieter area with a dog buddy to tag along with, I feel a lot more comfortable and happy to follow along. I can be very playful, so an older dog may not want me up in their grill, but a confident adult sibling will really help me open up and keep me entertained. I am pretty outgoing with new people I meet, though I still have a bit of sensitive side. Thus, I am looking for a home with kiddos over 12. Sometimes I jam a little too hard when practicing with my rock band, so I would also do best in a house without shared walls with neighbors. With kitties, I tend to be a little exuberant in my play and like to chase, so no cats in my home please! After some activity, I am quite the snugglebug and would love to curl up with you on the couch while getting some pets. Silly, sweet, and downright lovable, this cool cat-I mean dog- is ready to find my forever home today! Will it be with you? Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

“We’re tiny, we’re tooney, we’re all a little looney!” We are Rocky and Foofa, and we are doing our best silly impressions so we can become the next Looney Toons! We would be the perfect fit after all. Our antics are so entertaining that the Pixie gals can’t help but laugh and giggle at us. We are both 8 year old Chihuahuas weighing at about 7lbs each. We have come out of our shell a lot, but we are still a little shy when we meet new people. We have to keep working on our confidence building if we want to be comedians though, and we are quick to come around with a little patience and some treats. We are very much a dynamic duo who has been with each other since we were pups, so we are pretty attached at the hip. Our act just wouldn’t work as a solo anyways, so we will stick together! We are quite the talkative pair with a lot to say. Loud and proud, and very silly, we definitely should be in a house without shared walls with neighbors in a quieter area. Not everyone loves what we have to say after all. You know those critics can be so harsh! We have met other mellow small dogs at Pixie as well as some kitties too and we don’t really mind. We may talk their ear off for a bit, but then it’s back to exploring the smells in the yard and practicing our acts. We like sitting on laps and getting lots of attention from our adult human pals. And of course we adore each other and will cuddle, snuggle, and groom each other in preparation for our big auditions. After all, it’s not everyday that you get to tryout for your forever family, so we must do everything to prepare! Anvils falling from the sky, silly voices, and roadrunners with dynamite, we will have it all in our Tiny Toons Adventure show! So fill out an application today to set up a meet with these two clowns. We come to you vaccinated, fixed, and micro-chipped with a total adoption fee of $350.

Oh. Um. Hi! How are you? Don’t mind my awkward stares. I am a bit of a bashful gal and with me being so gorgeous, everyone tends to stare, so it takes me a second to come out of my shell. At 7 years old and around 26 lbs, not much is known about my breed mix, but they are thinking maybe a Jack Russell mix. Whatever I am, I am pretty darn cute! I am a sensitive lady who is takes time to warm up to new people and new situations. Thus, I am looking for an quiet adult only house a bit out of the busy city environment. I can be picky about my dog friends, but grew up with one my whole life, so a confident male dog in the home who respects my space would be just fine. Or I am happy to be the star of the show too! But I definitely would get overwhelmed at dog parks or busy urban areas and trails, so I am much more of a hang out in the backyard and catch some rays kind of gal. Once I do warm up, I am very affectionate and loving, so a patient home is needed to see me really blossom! I still do have a playful side and when I am not playing with my dog friend I made here at Pixie, I will also play with toys. Mostly those squeaky tennis balls. Those are my favorite! I also go on walks outside and the traffic near downtown is a bit too much, but in a quieter area, I would love to do some jaunts around the block. Sensitive, adorable, and such a sweetie, I am eager to find my forever home today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

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.

Sweet Selly here! I’m a gorgeous, exotic-looking brown tabby kitty that is just 4-years-old. I am a shy girl at first, that will really open up and become quite the playful, curious character once I’ve had time to get to know you! Once that trust is built, I will thoroughly enjoy your attention, and even flop over for belly rubs! I also enjoy company and will run up to greet new people as soon as I’ve had time to settle in my space and will rarely run away from the opportunity to make a new friend. Speaking of friends, I’m a wonderful companion that generally wants to be near you and will follow you around the house when you’re home. I am also more than happy to chase you around the house with a long stringy toy, and gallop around on my own tossing around toy mice and birds or chasing flies when you’re busy! I can be fairly independent if you’re busy, and wouldn’t mind someone who had to work outside the home and leave me alone for longer hours. I’ll just ask for a snuggle when you get home and when we’ve really bonded, I’d love to sleep by your legs at night like the loyal best friend I know I can be! I’m a quiet and easy-going girl that would prefer a similar home. While I like to be close and will allow belly rubs and but scratches, I’m not a big fan of being picked up and I’m not at all used to loud kid energy — I’m actually easily startled still at times and can feel a little insecure until I’ve had a chance to settle. I’m looking for a patient new owner who will be understanding of my warming-up process, and I’d also really love a feline friend to bond with as well! Other cats seem to help me feel more comfortable, and I’d make a wonderful new friend for another cat who might enjoy my company. I’m perfectly fine living entirely indoors and am used to the apartment lifestyle. I am also a healthy kitty with no medical issues. I am currently on a very cheap anti-anxiety medication which I eat in my food to help me through my next transition while I continue to build my confidence in a new home. I can’t wait to land in my permanent place with my forever family and start falling in love! Wouldn’t you like to meet me? Fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.
