This is your chance to own a one-of-a kind bookmark handcrafted by our friend Chuck Palahniuk! Each bookmark is different and there are only 55 available. Get yours HERE!

“When my father was murdered in 1999, I began to collect rocks as I traveled.  My earliest memories of him were of us two hunting for agates so this became my ritual for remembering him.  I’ve brought home amber, moss agates, peridot, Russian chromium diopside, hematite, goldstone, tree agates, onyx, obsidian, coral, pearls, sodalite, chrysoprase, amazonite, aventurine, jade, amethyst, lapis lazuli, rose quartz, tourmaline, raw emeralds, calcite, alabaster, Botswana agates, picture jasper, tigers eye, Dalmatian jasper, snowflake obsidian, citrine, apatite, carnelian agate, howlite, variscite, abalone, opal, turquoise, sunstone quartz, serpentine, malachite, Pacific jasper, as well as art glass beads from Rome and Prague.  When my mother died in 2009, I began to use elements from jewelry that had belonged to her:  charms, cloisonné enamel, pendants.  These I combine to create bookmarks that range in length from two-feet to four-feet long.  Each is unique and takes several days to make and wrap.  Each is strung on steel cable, knotted and crimped and secured with jewelry-grade Hypo Cement.  Hook one from a book on your highest shelf, and add some bling to your library.  I’ll send each with a letter to explain the stones and other elements it includes.    chuck palahniuk”

Pixie is currently operating by appointment. Staff will be available by email (, 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.

DOG fosters:  with some of our foster families headed back to work and school, we’re looking for a few more people to add to our Foster Roster! We may not have the right dog for you immediately, but we want to make sure we have some extra homes available when we have dogs who need them! Fill out the foster application or email with any questions!

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:

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!

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.
