– Grant Will Enhance Pixie’s Veterinary Assistance Program –

Portland, OR (June 16, 2014)   The Pixie Project (@ThePixieProject) announced today that they have received a $7500.00 grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust. The funds will be used to enhance The Pixie Project’s Veterinary Assistance Program.

In addition to their work as an animal adoption center, The Pixie Project provides veterinary services to Portland’s low income and homeless communities at The Scott Wainner Pixie Care Clinic.   This grant will help ensure that The Pixie Project can provide these services on a regular basis for the rest of 2014.   It will help cover the costs of surgical supplies, veterinarian technicians and the occasional veterinarian when volunteer veterinarians are not available. Services will range from emergency care, such as stitches and amputations, as well as basic veterinary care, including teeth extractions and tumor removal.   They will also provide preventative care.

‘œWe are incredibly grateful to Banfield Charitable Trust to partner with us on this project.   Veterinary care is expensive, and very often people are asked to surrender their animal if they want it to receive care’ says Amy Sacks, The Pixie Project’s Executive Director   ‘œWe believe that helping animals and keeping them in their current homes helps the already overloaded shelter system from becoming even more burdened.’

The Pixie Project offers support for local over-crowded under-funded county shelters by bringing animals into Pixie’s family friendly adoption center and matching them with forever families. Pixie also offers free and low cost veterinary services including spay and neuter surgeries for the pets of Portland homeless and low-income communities.

Competition is good for the soul – and good for Pixie’s bank account!  We are looking to launch a donation box campaign in various local businesses. In order to make hip businesses more inclined to put these donation boxes out on their counters we want to make them CUTE! So….we would like to put a challenge out to our wonderful Pixie family – who can design the best donation box?
The winner will not only get bragging rights and the ability his or her donation boxes all over the city but also  a Pixie Project American Apparel hoodie!

Contest guidelines:
Boxes must not be larger than 6′ tall by 6′ inches wide.  Boxes must be able to be reproduced as needed as we grow this campaign. Boxes must have a location where cash and coins can be easily deposited but also a mostly solid top so as to avoid theft. The cost for each box including labor and materials must not exceed $15.

Ok everyone – Have fun!!!!

Our re-launch party was a  huge success!   A big, boisterous  thank you to everyone who was able to drop by the party and make the night one to remember!

Now that the Pixie Project is officially re-opened please feel free to  come by, say “hello,” and give our cattery kitties some love.   It will be a bit longer before our dogs are available, as we are waiting on some finishing touches to our kennels (can’t have them live without their salon and jacuzzi!).  We will update this  website as soon as we start intaking dogs again, so keep checking back.   If you are interested in fostering or volunteering, please shoot us an email at info@pixieproject.org as we are getting back on track to organizing those programs.

Our new hours are:

Tuesday-Friday: 11 am- 6 pm

Saturday: 11 am – 4 pm

Sunday and Monday: CLOSED
