Pixie is currently operating by appointment. Staff will be available by email (info@pixieproject.org), phone (503-542-3432), and will be checking voicemail during normal shelter hours.

With staff working from home, please utilize email as much as possible.

Urgent cases and request for aid are our first priority—we appreciate your patience with non-emergency emails.

We currently have enough DOG foster homes. If you are interested in fostering CATS (especially adult cats!) fill out an application or email us for more info. 

Adoptions and intake will continue to take place, but all appointments must be scheduled in advance—the shelter will not be open to the general public.

If you have Donations to Drop-off: Donations are accepted Tuesday – Friday 11-6 and Saturday 11-4. Please ring the doorbell and we will meet you at the door to bring the donations inside. If you have questions about what we can and cannot accept, learn more here:  https://www.pixieproject.org/category/wishlist/

If an adoptable animal has pending in the title of their listing, it means they have a meet with a potential adopter lined up. Understandably, these are taking longer to arrange. If you are interested in meeting an animal, please email us your completed application and we will update you if that animal becomes available.

Thank You!
-The Pixie Project Staff

We haven’t slowed down.

Read about our work HERE.






Order Mr. Wizard by Jeff Wallach for Father’s Day and the publishers will donate 50 cents to the Pixie Project for every copy sold!

Reviewer Peter Donnelly called the novel, “A lovely upbeat story that hugely entertains.” Mr. Wizard is a rollicking genetic treasure hunt in which fathers and sons and daughters come together with the help of some Irish golf.

Today is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving that is providing emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Pixie is trying to help any way we can–we’re providing food and supplies to pet owners who are out of work and helping with medications and veterinary care to keep people from having to surrender their pets during the crisis. For people who are sick, losing housing, or who aren’t able to keep their pets even with Pixie providing resources and support, we’re helping to find new homes for the affected pets through our rescue program. With other shelters reducing services for the public, the need for surrender and critical care will only grow.

Please give, if you’re able. You can donate through our website or check out our Amazon Wish List. Thank you. #GivingTuesday

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!
