With the dramatic reduction in services provided by the county shelter, we’re stretched thinner than ever at Pixie. We really appreciate your patience–it’s taking a little extra time to respond to every call and email. On top of our normal rescue, adoption, and clinic programs, we’re managing dozens of calls and emails every day from owners in crisis who are being turned away from other shelters and neighbors who are trying to help abandoned cats that are no longer accepted at the county facility.

We’re working to find long-term solutions to help expand our safety net, but right now, things are tough. Our staff is trying hard to reach everyone as quickly as we can, but we’re also dealing with the financial realities of fixing, vaccinating, and caring for cats who would normally be cared for at the county shelter.

If you’re able to help, consider making a donationPixie does not receive any government funding–we rely on donations to provide these essential services. 

Pixie is currently operating by appointment only with an approved application. (Learn about our adoption process and find our applications here.) Staff will be available by email (info@pixieproject.org), phone (503-542-3432), and will be checking voicemail during normal shelter hours. 


Urgent cases and request for aid are our first priority—we appreciate your patience with non-emergency emails. Due to a number of unprecedented crises and a reduction in county services for stray and abandoned, we’re seeing more emergencies every day than we ever have before. Please allow up to 5-7 business days to respond to adoption applications. This is not our norm but our current reality.

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 after filling out an adoption applicationthe shelter will not be open to the general public.

If you have filled out an application for a cat, dog, or kitten, please do not call to check in unless you haven’t heard from us in 5-7 days! We’re processing applications as quickly as we can, but with the higher volume of applications and phone calls about those applications, it’s taking a little longer to get back to everyone! We have office staff at the shelter Tues-Sat and we’re dealing with an unprecedented number of urgent and emergency cases due to a reduction of services at the county shelter. We’ll get back to everyone, but we’re a small shelter and we’re stretched further than we’ve ever been before. 

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. Before dropping off, please check out the list of items we’re able to accept:  https://www.pixieproject.org/category/wishlist/ You do not need an appointment to drop off donations during those hours!

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’re still receiving tons of urgent calls and emails from pet owners facing emergencies who need help, so we appreciate your patience if we’re taking an extra day to respond to non-emergencies. If you’re looking to adopt or you’ve submitted an application, we’re working as hard as we can to process everyone–we promise we’ll get back to you. Thank you for understanding!
