Hello! My name is Mr. Chip and I am a handsome and dashing 1.5 year old hound mix weighing around 40lbs. Hailing from the South, I am not quite a city slicker yet, and am getting used to all the hustle and bustle still. I really love my doggy friends and they really seem to give me a big boost in confidence. In fact, I am in play group with just about every dog at Pixie! Right now, I am looking to get a little down time and hang out in an owned foster home while I search for my forever family. I definitely would like another doggy play friend in the home with me, so I can have some fun and keep building that confidence. And a lower traffic area and a nice big yard would be even better! I am a sweetheart who is blossoming and just need some quiet time to really help me bloom. Email info@pixieproject.org if you would be willing to give me a little break while I start my search for my new home.

“TIIIIMMBBEERRR” Who is this handsome lumberjack?! Oh, it’s just me, Timber! I am a sweet and sensitive 4 year old pitty mix weighing roughly 55 lbs. I have got a huge heart and instantly melt in your arms as soon as you start with the scratches. I am that perfect squishy pitapotamus who loves to cuddle at just about any point of day with my human pals over 13. I could be in the middle of romping around with my doggies pals and you could call my name for some snuggle time, and I will be right there! My puppy pals are quite fun (no kitties in my home please) and I have really made some awesome dog friends at Pixie. And my good looks and charm make me a total hit with my four legged gal pals. Being a native Texan,  I just couldn’t stop hearing about the beauty of the PNW and I had to see it for myself! I am super excited to do some exploring and am an extremely good walker as well. And after a romp around the block, I would be happy to play with my favorite squeaker toys in the back yard of my owned home too! And then of course it back to catching some zzz’s under the blanket next to you on the couch as we watch some movies during this yucky winter weather. I have a super big heart and I am ready to share it with my forever family today! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. Interested in fostering me while I find my forever home? Email info@pixieproject.org. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! I am Sunny and I am sure you have already fallen in love with my hilarious overbite, but my whimsical personality is enough to win you over too! I am a lovable 12 year old Doxie/chihuahua mix weighing in at 13lbs. I am a funny gal whose adorable antics are sure to entertain. I am the best snuggler and all about those cuddles! Sometimes, I even flip on my back in your arms like a baby as you give me all the belly rubs! I’m all about a quiet life of retirement though still have some spunk to go for daily walks or run around the backyard. I have met some doggy pals here at Pixie and wouldn’t mind a confident mellow friend in the home. A confident dog savvy kitty would be just fine too. I am just looking for an adult only home where I can relax and get all the belly rubs in the world. And don’t worry about my tongue, I promise I am not sticking it out at you. Ha! It just sometimes flops out on it’s own. Available for adoption or foster, I am a sweetie who would be delighted to hang out with you today! Fill out an application today.

Hi there! My name is Mali and I am a sweetheart 12 year old Cocker Spaniel weighing in at around 30lbs. You might notice something missing on my gorgeous face: my eye! And my remaining eye is going blind too and will be taken out soon. But it’s no worries as I am a very confident and spunky girl, and though this situation is new to me, I am learning to navigate the world. I have met some other doggy pals and have done just fine. Maybe a more confident pooch who won’t mind me bumping into them every now and again would be ideal. I’m a little too interested in those kitties, so none in my home please! Since I am still learning to how to be completely in the dark, so to speak, I am looking for a family with older kids over 13 and a home that doesn’t have a ton of stairs (or has the ability to block off stairs), so I don’t fall! I am cuddler and snuggler who loves still going for my afternoon strolls in the great outdoors. Still lots of smells to be had! So fill out an application today, so we can start our bonding adventures together. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $275.

Oh hello! My name is Teddy and I am a 2 year old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix weighing in at just a mere 5 lbs. I am a sweet guy who takes a little time to warm up, but once I do, I am full of love and kisses! I have been in a home environment my whole life and the shelter is new and kind of scary to me, and I am really looking for a nice foster home to relax in for awhile, as I continue to blossom! I am looking for a quiet home with no kids, and a mellow but playful little pup or kitty would be ok too! I’m mostly a snuggler, but have some doggy friends that I do enjoy romping around with at Pixie. I even like to play fetch with my human pals with a tiny ball that is just my size! Available for adoption or foster, fill out an application and email info@pixieproject.org for more details. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Thank you for your interest in fostering a Pixie Pet! Fostering a pet is a deeply rewarding experience and it is one of the most direct ways to make a lasting difference in the lives of animals. The reasons that a particular animal may need foster care vary greatly. Some just need a quiet and peaceful place to recover from a spay or neuter surgery, some may be overwhelmed or scared by a shelter environment and others may be in need of additional medical or behavioral support best found in a home.   Whatever the reason, it is important to know that every animal that we can place in foster care opens up a spot in our shelter for another animal awaiting intake. This means that by opening up your home to a foster pet in need you not only that help that animal but others not yet in the safety of our adoption program.

The Pixie Project staff will always do our best to match the right foster animal with the right foster home. In order for us to do this successfully it is important that we have all the necessary information regarding your home and family.   Please consider the following questions when filling out our foster application:

1) Are all members of your home in agreement about the decision to foster a pet?   This includes housemates, spouses, family members and anyone else who would share responsibility or interaction with the animal in your home.

2) How will your current pets react to a new pet entering the home? A normal adjustment period is always expected but we never want the addition of a foster animal to cause extreme stress or unhappiness on a resident pet.

3) Do you have the time? While many Pixie foster pets may be older, totally trained and require little more than a cozy place to await their new forever home, others might have medical or training needs that require a bit more time and energy on the part of the foster home. It is very important to clearly and honestly communicate your schedule, comfort level, and realistic expectations of what time and energy you have to offer a foster animal.   This will help us to ensure your foster experience is rewarding and enjoyable!

Once you have considered the questions above the next step is to fill our foster parent application.   If you are considering fostering either a dog or a cat please fill out both forms as each animal has a specific set of needs.

When the application has been completed submit it to the Pixie Project either via email, fax, or in person at which point we will schedule a meeting for you and one of our staff members to get acquainted, and hopefully get you ready for a foster pet.

Thank you for opening your heart and your home to a Pixie Pet in need and we look forward to working with you to help these wonderful animals find their forever homes!
