Pete has been volunteering with Pixie since October and he’s already indispensable. He’s a great transport volunteer, helping to make sure that animals make it from rural shelters to Pixie safely. He’s so flexible and always has such a positive attitude, even when pick-up times change at the last minute. Having help getting animals means that we’re able to reach more pets and keeps the staff free to help with adoptions. Plus, just look at how he tamed Mimi!

Linda is an absolutely amazing cattery volunteer who’s been with Pixie for more than FIVE years. She comes at least one (but usually two) mornings a week, every week, to clean up after and care for all the kitties in the building. She has also fostered and adopted cats from us, uses her years of service industry experience to help us at our huge annual fundraiser, and is a wonderful, sweet person that lights up the shelter and makes everyone smile whenever she’s here! She’s an absolute doll with all of the cats and definitely provides a ton of comfort to each and every one. Last year, she was the recipient of our Cattery Award and she deserves to be recognized for her amazing work. Thank you, Linda!

Trail Blazer star Jusuf Nurkić spent an afternoon at Pixie as part of a promotion with CarMax to highlight some of his favorite places in Portland! Jusuf loves cats and we had a blast showing off the shelter and the adoptable animals in our care.






Adrian is an amazing long-time volunteer! Starting as a summer intern and continuing after his program ended, Adrian works with the Pixie dogs, cats, helps with events and is always happy to chip in with any other task that pops up around the shelter. He’ll even stop in unscheduled just to check and see if we need any help. He’s one of our most valuable volunteers and we’re lucky to have him on our team!
