Hi there! My name is Annabelle and I am a sassy and utterly adorable 7 yo Pom-chi weighing 9 lbs. If you are looking for snuggler who needs you as much as you need them, well I am your gal! I love being around my adult human pals, especially when they give me lots of skritches and belly rubs. My foster family says I am very coy and smart, and will do just about anything for some tasty treats! I will even hang out under your feet when you are cooking to make sure I catch any tasty morsels that might fall to the ground. I can be a little bit picky with my doggy friends, and have lived with a doggy my size in the past. He was very chill and mellow though, and that is more of my style. None of this puppy like energy business! I didn’t seem to pay too much attention to the office cat at Pixie, so a confident dog savvy kitty in the home would be ok. As long as I can be the one that gets to sleep in your lap during movie night, I am a happy camper. I can sometimes be a little vocal when I express myself, so I would do best in a low foot traffic owned home. I always like to follow my nose when I am out on my daily walks, sniffing out the next adventure. But then it’s back inside for some more cuddle time under the warm blankets! Silly, inquisitive, and oh so sweet, I am so ready to find my forever person today. Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

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 foster homes. If that changes, we’ll post an update. 

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 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.

With so many people working from home (including Pixie adoption and office staff), we’re receiving about 5 times our normal volume of email. We’re thrilled to have such an amazing community, but it make take us a little longer than normal to get back to everyone.

Thank You!
-The Pixie Project Staff

With the COVID-19 situation continuing to advance and evolve, we wanted to give an update about measures that we’re taking to ensure the health and well-being of Pixie’s people and animals.

We are monitoring updates and recommendations from the CDC, WHO, and local authorities and are prepared to enact changes to our operations as necessary. For the time being, the shelter is operating normally. Should we decide to close the shelter to the public, rest assured that all animals in our care will continue to have their needs met by shelter staff and foster caregivers. In addition to our standard hygiene and daily sanitization measures, we are sanitizing doorknobs and other surfaces in our facility that are frequently touched.

Staff and volunteers have been instructed not to come in if they are feeling ill or know that they have been exposed to COVID-19. We do ask that visitors, volunteers, and potential adopters delay their visit to the shelter if they aren’t feeling well in order to reduce the risk of spreading illness to others.

While current evidence overwhelmingly suggests that companion animals are unlikely to become infected by COVID-19, this is a good opportunity to review your pets’ role in your general disaster preparedness plan. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that pet owners keep on hand the following:
*A two-week supply of food and water for each pet in your care.
*A two-week supply of each pet’s medications.
*A file that contains each pet’s care plan, vaccination and ownership records, microchip information, and a preferred contact in case of emergency.   

We hope that all humans and animals in the Pixie community stay safe and healthy during this time, and we will continue to provide updates as the situation develops.

Hi! Hello! Are you ready to play? I sure am! My name is Chloe and I am a beautiful 1 year old Cattle dog mix weighing just 30lbs. With a spring in my step and a mind as sharp as a tack, I am a working gal looking for an experienced owner to teach me some new tricks! It can take a little for me to warm up to my new adult friends, especially men, but once I do, I am full of hugs and kisses. I can be a lot when it comes to meeting new dogs friends and not every pup loves my play style, but I have made a few friends at Pixie that I really get along with. And they have thought me some nice manners! When I am not running around the play yard with my doggy pals, I enjoy playing fetch with some toys or playing other interactive food toys that help stimulate my active mind. I bet I would even love to do some fun nose work exercises if you could teach me! I am a rural gal through and through, so downtown city life isn’t for me and I would much rather run around some property than do walks in the city. I would need an experienced owned home in a low traffic neighborhood and outside the city would be ideal. I also would need an adult only home with no kids ( including future kiddos) or cats, but I would enjoy the company of a confident adult male dog who could keep up with me! Even after a day of activity,  I still love to curl up on the couch with you while we eat some popcorn and watch some movies. Smart, bubbly, very energetic, and oh so gorgeous, I am ready to play with you today! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Red

Roses are Red and so am I! Valentine’s day may be over, but it’s never too late to add some shades of Red to your life. I am a 8 year old Min Pin weighing around 16 lbs with an adorable floppy-upright ear situation going on. It’s quite goofy, but matches my silly personality! I am a very sensitive and mellow gent with a love of sunbathing and walks around the block. But boy do I get excited when I get to meet new four legged friends! In fact, my foster says I am one of the only smalls that will play with the big doggies in the home. I get so wiggly and flirty with the cutest play bow that entices everyone to join in the fun! I have even met the resident cats and would be fine sharing a home with a dog savvy cat. It can take a second to warm up to my human friends though, so someone who is patient and can let me blossom on my own time. After a long day of play, I voluntarily take my pre-dinner nap in my crate before scarfing down my yummy supper. I am a fairly independent guy and not a huge fan of cuddles, but will let you know when I am ready for snuggles. Being an older gent, I would love to retire to an adult only owned home, but would be happy to be joined by some furry siblings. Cute, funny, and a sensitive soul, you don’t need an arrow from cupid to fall in love with me! Fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL KATIE AT THE CONTACT INFO BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS*

My name is Ozzy and I am a handsome 1 year old, 12lb, Chihuahua/Terrier mix with a loving personality. I’m a social butterfly with my human friends, and a spunky playmate with other dogs. I love learning new tricks, morning naps, playing with toys, and heading to the dog park for exercise. I’m great with adults, but children are a bit too unpredictable for me. I would do well in a quiet, owned home with another calm dog friend. I’m not a fan of super long work days and would love a doggy friend to keep me company, and someone who is patient and can help build my confidence of being home alone. My dog-parents would help by developing leave-training habits as I deal with separation anxiety. Being smart and food motivated has helped me learn many basic commands, and will help with coping mechanisms. If you’re interested, contact my owner to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

–THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. FOR MORE INFO ABOUT LUNA, PLEASE CONTACT SAM AT THE PHONE/EMAIL BELOW–

Hi I’m Luna! I’m 4 1/2 years old, and I’m a spunky little lady. As a Lilac Point Siamese, I’m full of energy and enjoy playful conversation with my humans. For exercise I like to play with toys and climb as high as I can in my cat tree. I’m a very good hunter as well! Sitting by a big open window watching birds, and catching sun beams is a favorite past time of mine. I keep myself and my home tidy, and have impeccable bathroom habits. I feel my best when I can interact with my humans, and receive enough mental and physical activity throughout the day. 
 
My ideal home is somewhere quiet and mellow with lots of space to run around, and big windows to gaze out of. I’m a bit sensitive to loud noises and lots of strangers, so having my own safe space is helpful in those situations. I prefer to be the only pet in the home, and with adults only, who have previous cat experience. So far in my life I’ve only been indoors, however, I would probably enjoy the option of exploring outside on a secure leash – at my own pace of course! I can take some time to warm up to new people and environments, but once I do, I’m very affectionate and love to cuddle. One thing I like the most is having consistent routines. I don’t mind watching the house during the workday, but being alone for an extended period of time, such as a few days, makes me worried and stressed. I feel most comfortable when someone I trust is home regularly. I am up to date on all my vaccines, micro-chipped and recently checked out as a healthy, chubby girl at my last vet appointment.

Contact Sam at 503.318.7789 or slmichelson9@gmail.com for more info.
