*CUTIE CAT IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT KARLA AT nutt.karla@gmail.com FOR MORE DETAILS*

Cutie Cat loves to wait for you to sit down and come to see you on her terms – very feline. She loves to be pet behind the ears and gently scratched on top of her head.  Cutie is an outdoor kitty. She lives in our insulated garage with a heater in winter and loves to be outdoors.  If you decide to train her to bring her indoors, she does know how to use a litter box. I think she was three or four months old when we got her from the Humane Society in 2010.  

She is an amazing mouser and loves to lay in the sun on the porch and sidewalk. Her favorite pastime is waiting for people to walk by the house and run out to greet them. She falls on her back waiting for someone to greet her, and may not move until she is pet!

We love her, and need to find her a new loving home as we are moving to a rural area where there are feral cats. We feel it would be dangerous for her to be there.  We would love for her to be able to remain a pretty city kitty as she loves neighborhoods with many to greet her so much.  Email us at nutt.karla@gmail.com if interested in her adoption.

*ODIN IN NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE REACH OUT TO GISELLE DIRECTLY AT giselle.pwnz@gmail.com FOR MORE DETAILS*

Hello my name is Odin! I’m a loveable Shepherd mix looking for a new home! I am about 70lbs, 4 years old with a beautiful brindle coat – seriously I get compliments about it wherever I go! Originally I came to Oregon from California as a stray puppy, and I’ve been living with the same family since. My health is great, no hip problems and up to date on vaccines. I’m a very polite dog and thrive on routine! I wait patiently in my bed for my dog mom to wake up in the morning before I start my day! I recently had an evaluation from a dog trainer and she said I was a super sweet, well trained dog who would be great for training games like ball work, nose work and other fun things! 

What I love to do:
I absolutely love to train, seriously I would do anything for some treats!! Did you know I can do a bunch of things like sit, stay, roll over, heal, leave it, take it, get ball, get toy, pray, paw, wave,  come and more! I also love to spend time with my special person. ‘Are you leaving the room, friend? Okay I’ll come with you is my motto!’  I do love a good walk or jog, but it’s not required every day for me! Most of the time, I lay down and relax near my special human. But I’m always ready for an adventure, whether that be a nice walk, jog, or hike. One of my favorite things to do is go to doggy daycare! I don’t get to go all the time, but going every once in a while would be great for me to play with other dogs!

Why am I looking for a new home:

Recently my dog mom divorced and life has been tough for her! Juggling a work, home, and life with 3 kids is tough. Money is tighter and she doesn’t have as much time for me anymore 🙁

What I am looking for:
My new human(s) would be looking for that special dog who wants me by their side! My ideal day would start by waiting patiently in my bed for you to wake up, then eagerly following you as we start our day! That could be things like chilling next to you while you work or keeping you company while you work on the yard. Then I would love to go for a walk or even some training, ball work!  I am very in tune with my special people and I am hoping you will be in tune with me too!

My current dog mom works from home so I am not used to being left alone during the week for hours at a time. I do not have separation anxiety, but I don’t think I would be happy frequently being alone for most of the day. That said, I love doggy daycare so if my new human wants to take me sometimes, I would be so down with that!

A big thing for me is I’m looking for a new friend or family that wants to keep up with my positive training. Big emphasis on the positive, I love to please and I won’t respond well to negativity, it’s scary! The thing is, my dog mom spent a lot of time training me and  it helps me feel secure when I know what to expect.

My new home would be in a low key place without a lot of foot traffic. Ideally I would have a yard or somewhere to go potty that would not require a walk. Right now I am trained to go potty on concrete – not my favorite place but my dog mom wanted to keep the grass clean, silly mom!


I currently live with a couple cats so a cat who is respectful of my space and food could be okay. I also live with kids right now, but due to my size it would be better if my new home had either older kids or no kids (and not planning on any, I’m just kinda big you see.) I have not lived with other dogs before, but the trainer said I may do well with a confident adult female dog friend who is about my size. I am not super keen on a lot of new people coming and going in my house, that does make me kinda anxious. But having some special adult human friends that I get to know would be fine!

If you are interested or have questions, please reach out to my dog mom at giselle.pwnz@gmail.com. We are asking for a $250 rehome fee. In lieu of the fee, my new human(s) can complete 2 training sessions. Interested parties will be asked to fill out an application.

*MICHAH IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CALL WILLOW AT 815-351-0201 IF INTERESTED IN HER ADOPTION*

Hello! My lovely cat Michah (pronounced Micah just with an extra h) is needing to find his forever home. Due to some issues between animals and extensive attempts to make him feel comfortable at home over the past year I have made the very hard decision that he needs a different home environment. Before me his owner was an older woman who he adored but unfortunately she could no longer care for him. Michah is a handsome siamese cat that is approximately 7 years old (rough estimate). He loves guided play with his favorite toy and to be pet while he cuddles up to you. 

If you are interested please contact me! My cellphone is 815-351-0201 🙂 Much more details below. Feel free to share if you know someone who might be a good fit!

Michah’s Personality

  • Very calm

  • Loving

  • Talkative (haha)

  • Sweet and gentle

Michah’s ideal home

  • Quieter home without other dogs/cats

  • Owner who is home often and wants a companion to be around

  • Is able to get lots of attention including pets and has the ability to play with him

  • Someone who does not mind a Siamese talkativeness

Michah’s medical notes

  • Up to date on vaccines (needs a rabies booster in September)

  • Recent vet visit with blood work that all seems good

  • Has some GI issues which requires a specific food to prevent constipation and vomiting

  • Overall healthy 🙂

  • He has a vet that has helped through the stomach issues. He also is on a health plan at this vet that has been paid for the next year which gets him discounted visits and testing. 

Michah’s included amenities

  • Litter box (I have 2 so he could come with both!)

  • Litter box mat

  • Brush

  • Cling on window ledge so he can sunbathe

  • His favorite toys

  • His prescription food (a month’s worth so you have time to order more!)

  • Bowls

  • Blanket with his scent

  • Cat tree (optional!)

  • Vet service – discounted visits, tests, and whatnot for the next year

*GUS IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT HOLLY AT genericholly@gmail.com IF INTERESTED IN HIS ADOPTION*

Meet Gus. He’s a neutered male. His exact age is unknown but my vet estimated him at right around a year old when I took him in for an exam last month. My vet says he’s in good health, no FIV, no parasites, and he’s now at a healthy weight thanks to a better diet and lots of treats.
 
He came to me via a neighborhood cat person, who in turn got him from someone living in one of the nearby camps who said they “found” him on the street. He had no chip or collar. She took him to the Feral Cat Coalition to be neutered and cleaned up but it was pretty obvious that he hadn’t been a street cat his whole life and he seemed to like people. So she decided to try and find him a home rather than just sending him back to the street life, and since I had just lost my elderly cat I happened to be in a position to take him in as a “foster and we’ll see how it goes.”
 
He’s a lovely floofy boy with a magnificent tail and a wonderful purr. He’s got lots of energy and he loves toys – his favorite is a rainbow streamer on a stick. He enjoys watching squirrels out my front window and getting ear scratches. He needs work on manners (I’m working on redirecting him when his play gets too bitey) but I think some of that will just come too with age and more people contact. He’s not a lap cat really but he loves to be near me and give him head butts while I work. He’s very curious about whatever I’m doing and will frequently make appearances on my work Zoom calls.
 
Unfortunately, he and my other cat just don’t get along. I introduced them gradually but it just hasn’t gone well – they’re fine as long as one of them is in a carrier, but if one of them is not contained it immediately turns into a  fight. Beaker spent some time as a street cat as well, and it’s almost as though they activate each other’s need to fight over turf. They’re both friendly, personable cats on their own, but I think it’s time to find Gus a more compatible home.
 
It’s possible he might do best in a single cat household – but I think it’s not impossible that he’d be okay in a house with other cats that have the right temperament. I don’t think he’d be a good fit for a household with small children but an older child that respects his boundaries would probably be okay. 
 
If you’re interested in meeting him, please get in touch at genericholly@gmail.com.

*MOOSE IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; IF INTERESTED IN ADOPTION PLEASE CONTACT THAI AT Curtis.thai@gmail.com*

Moose is a 3 year old bloodhound coonhound mix.
For the most part moose is a fairly calm dog, she tends to match the mood, when you’re calm she naps and cuddles but if you want to go camping and throw a stick she’ll be more than happy to join. She’s decently food motivated which makes training new things quite easy although sometimes she finds it hard to contain her excitement. Moose enjoys being involved in things, so anyone who wants a companion to go out and about or even just to lay around the house with, moose would be the perfect fit.
She has absolutely no aggression towards anything I’ve seen, so she’d be perfect for a family dog, or an only dog.

Email Thai at Curtis.thai@gmail.com if interested in adopting Moose.

*THIS CAT IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY, PLEASE CONTACT ELENI AT lazarou@umich.edu*

Bubba is a cuddly big boy! We met on the sidewalk where he meowed and came right to me and let me carry him all the way home; he has been giving leg rubs, lap snuggles and purrs ever since. We have searched and searched, but Bubba has no family claiming him. Bubba is a healthy boy and will be up to date on vaccinations and microchipped before he gets adopted. Bubba is energetic and curious, likes to play and would likely do well as an indoor/outdoor pet if the neighborhood was suited. Bubba is polydactyl on his front paws (cute little mittens!), and will need special attention to nail grooming to avoid ingrown nails. Bubba can get anxious around my kitty and dogs, and reacts with the typical “hsss”. Even when hissy, Bubba welcomes being pet and is not easily upset with humans. He has gone through a lot of changes in a short time span, so it is unclear if he would do best in a home where he is the only pet (maybe to begin with to adjust to home living). Bubba is comfortable with people and likes to be pet from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail! He loves to chit chat, and will respond if spoken to. Bubba deserves a loving home, space to roam, active play time and someone who can be patient with his transition from living outside on his own. Please email lazarou@umich.edu if interested in Bubba!

*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT LIAM AT liamwoods1@gmail.com *

Seeking the right home for my dog “Goose.” He’s a well trained 4 year old Labradoodle. He’s a mellow guy and will sleep next to you on the couch or floor for most of the day. He does like to cuddle and will fall asleep with his head on your lap or gleefully sleep in your bed if that’s allowed. I don’t let him in my bed so no pressure there, but friends do and he loves it. Goose does weigh about 80 lbs, so he’s on the large side. He’s 3/4 poodle 1/4 lab (F1B), neutered, not a chewer or digger, is well house trained, he is trained to only poop in one gravel area behind my house and not on the lawn (so that’s an options for others), he’s also trained to pull you on a skateboard if you are crazy in the same way I am… thought that’s kind of an experts only situation:)
 
He does sometimes pull the leash on walks, but is a quick learner when it comes to training.
 
 He is very interested in cats but is not used to them since I do not have one and strangely none of my friends do either. I don’t think a house with a cat would be ideal. He loves the dogs he knows well but depending on the dog, he needs to meet new dogs slowly. He loves to play fetch. He’s also very good off leash on hikes. He is used to road trips, camping, hiking, etc… he’s been everywhere with me.
 
I’m not open to him living anywhere without a yard or property, or with anyone who’s work would leave him alone 9-5, sorry! He would do well with a family with kids above age 12 or so (he is a lot of klutzy excitable dog for the very little ones). He does do fine at home alone, I can leave him for 12 hours, I just rarely ever do that because it’s probably a bummer for him and I assume he really has to pee… A family or couple would be good, with a yard or property, or someone really devoted to dogs.
 
Goose had a professional assessment from a dog trainer today and this is what she said.
 
“I think Goose would do best in a home with no other dogs or a very confident female dog without fear or guarding issues. I would say no cats and children 12 and up. I think that the environment you’re looking for should be supportive to him not practicing barrier reactivity so watch for big windows and fences without visual barriers that are along spots with heavy foot traffic. I think someone who likes to hike and someone who has the means and the interest in continuing gooses training specifically focusing on his arousal/ reactivity while on leash and initially when greeting dogs. I would recommend in lieu of an adoption fee you request that the new owner complete two or three private training sessions.
 
He just needs the right environment to be happy and I can’t provide it. Basically he gets very excited and comes in a hot with new dogs, especially on leash. He does some resource guarding and barrier aggression (barking through fences). I’ll give anyone with interest lots more info.
 
My life has become extremely complicated with the pandemic closing my biz, illness in my family, and other complications that are not about Goose. I will not have the stability in the next few years to care for him and it’s not fair to him. This guy has been very well loved as I’ve had him since he was a pup and now my life has changed in ways that I need to embrace. It’s heartbreaking to try to find him another family but after agonizing about it for ages it’s finally time. I won’t be able to give him the home that he needs for years to come.
 
Please reach out or forward this to a friend if it sounds appealing. He could make someone very happy and be a great companion. Please let me know a bit about yourself and your living situation if you are interested by sending an email to liamwoods1@gmail.com

* THIS KITTY IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT JANE AT janecohrs@me.com FOR MORE DETAILS*
 
Jeff is a former stray, approximately 2 years old, neutered, vaccinated, and litter trained.  He is FIV+ but in great health. He is big on consent for touch, but he loves being picked up when he approves.  Jeff loves to snuggle and be brushed on his terms.  He’s a delightful mix of “love me and pet my belly” and “how dare you touch me!” He would do best in a family without young kids, or only with kids who understand he needs to dictate the level of affection. Jeff is EXTREMELY food motivated but we haven’t had ANY food aggression.  He is ok about taking treats from your hand but he can think nibbling on your fingers is a great game. We have not seen him around dogs. Our cats are not the best to get how he’d do in a multi cat home, we’ve had a fair bit of hissing. He has his own litter box, scratcher, house, and bed.
 
Jeff says no with his teeth, for the most part he doesn’t close his mouth but he has given me a few good scratches.  Jeff will need to be sedated to go to the vet. If interested in my adoption, please email janecohrs@me.com
