kipp-1Ball? Did someone say they want to play ball?! Hi everyone! My name is Kipp and I am a 4 year old English Pointer mix weighing in at about 45lbs. I LOVE to play, especially with toys and of course BALL!   Even though I am very active and  enjoy being  on the go, the city life is all new and the hustle and bustle is just a bit too scary for me. This makes me a little shy in social situations and I would prefer to be in a low traffic rural setting in a home owned by my adopters! I just need that space to run around and be my silly self. I am a little too intrigued by those kitties and need to be in a home without them.  But not  only do I enjoy playing with my human friends over the age of 8, but my doggy furriends as well!! I am a fun guy with a playful personality whose cute face is bound to make you fall in love with me. Are you ready to play and snuggle and then play some more? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

I am the beautiful, the distinguished, the fabulous Loria Lange, named after Jessica Lange herself! I am an 11-year-old, de-clawed sweetheart with the beauty and confidence of a refined actress and a heart of gold. I came to Pixie after my former owner was no longer able to care for me, but it is obvious I was well-loved, as I simply adore people and petting. If someone gives me enough attention, I will flop over and start “making muffins” with my tiny adorable little paws. I have lived around another cat before and would probably do just fine around other animals, though I’d be totally happy as your only one as well. My namesake may play a villain on TV, but my only agenda is to make you fall in love with me! Our story wouldn’t be an American Horror Story — it’d be an American Love Story! The doctor has given me a clean bill of health and I am ready to meet you, so what are you waiting for? Let’s walk down the red carpet together and ride off into our happily ever after! I’m currently living at Pixie and come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped (and with a recent dental already done!) for an adoption fee of $80.

While Dewey’s dream life would be to live in a tennis ball factory, he’s been in our shelter since last winter. This handsome four year old is young and spunky and raring to go. He has incredible enthusiasm for life and will need a home with people who can match that enthusiasm. Dewey usually waits anxiously but quietly at the front of his kennel for his chance to get out with us and his beloved tennis balls; he’s currently trying for a record of four in his mouth at one time and would be happy to play fetch much longer than any of our throwing arms can hold out.  Dewey came to us from a home with kids and will need to go to a home with a fully-fenced yard and no kitties.

The shelter requires all members of the household to meet prospective adoptees.  We do home checks, but for those of you who live outside of the county, you’ll simply need to bring photos of your home, yard, and fence.  Adoption fees are $110.00 for dogs younger than ten years old and include micro-chipping and registration.

Hola — I’m Camilla! I’m a beautiful and exotic-looking orange lady kitty that is as sweet as I am striking. I am about 9 years old and I absolutely adore attention from people. I am a very special lady, you know, since orange girl kitties are pretty rare. Especially ones as sweet as me! I’m currently living peacefully in the Pixie cattery around other cats, and am usually the first one to come up and say hello to anyone who stops in to visit. After giving you lots of head bumps, I’ll either climb up into your lap or flop down beside you and purr, purr, purr the day away! I don’t mind being picked up and snuggled — in fact, I may start drooling on you if I get enough chin scratches. I don’t seem to mind having other cats around, and I could probably do just fine around respectful dogs and children. I’m just a darling lady kitty with little white paws and a big, big heart. I am ready to go home! Won’t you come meet me? I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

I am Mr. Kittums — I’m a stately gentlemen with the colorings of a beautiful Russian Blue kitty. I’m around  9 years old and am very   affectionate. I have a very serious look to me but anyone who gives me a minute or two will learn that I’m a big softie. I like to rub up on people and will seek an open lap when I’m up and about. My fur is very soft and I have big, inviting green eyes that say, “Let’s be friends!”. Even though I am a bit older, I still have a ton of need for play and interaction, and would probably do best in a larger space where I can climb and explore! Since I am declawed, I should be an indoor-only kitty. I am ambivalent to other cats being around, and tend to walk away from confrontation. I’m a lover, not a fighter.  Unfortunately, I was previously de-clawed and so only have claws left on my back feet. Other than that, I’m in excellent health. I don’t ask for much — all I need is a soft place to lay and some people to shower with affection in a home that I can call my own. Would you fancy a man like me? Stroll over to Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd & Burnside today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Hey! My name is Chuck and I am a 1 year old Staffordshire Terrier mix! I am just a happy go lucky energetic guy looking for the right people to find me!  I like being active and enjoy going for walks or playing with my doggy pals at Pixie! I even have girlfriend who I just absolutely adore playing with. I am a wiggly guy with extra bounce in my step who needs a bit of basic training to establish some manners. I love toys, especially ball! Even though I am a very fun guy who loves attention, I am very independent and value play much more than snuggles. Because of the pep in my step, I need to be in a home without kids or cats with adopters who own their house, due to certain breed restriction legislation for renters. I would be a great pal for the active runner or hiker who loves the outdoors as much as I do. Care to hop into a new adventure?  Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Gracie is 5 years old, healthy, spayed and very sweet. She is very small and not of average size. She loves her belly scratched and rubbed oddly enough and licks you like crazy when cuddling. We have had Gracie since she was 8 weeks old. She doesn’t care for dogs but tolerates them. She can warm up to cats if they give her some space at first. She currently lives with 1 small dog that she avoids  like the plague and 1 older male cat that she sadly adores. She is very attached to our older male cat and loves to cuddle with him. The reason we are rehoming her is because she needs a home with no children, a calmer environment with less activity. I have 2 young toddlers that she has never warmed up to and is terrified of. She will hide all day until they are in bed. She refuses to come out for food, water or the cat box during the day because of the higher activity in the home. I am a stay at home mom and my children are home all day. Sometimes we won’t see her for 3 days at a time because she is so scared of the children. This is not a good environment for her to be in nor is it any life for her to hide constantly. Please help us find a calmer home where she isn’t in fear and doesn’t have to hide constantly! She is the sweetest cat and deserves more than we are able to provide.
Please help us spread the word and find a home for her.
Thank you!
Jessica Acosta

Lady Lisa here! I’m a beautiful and petite little one-year-old tabby  girl that is excited to meet you! I came in to Pixie as a young mom with two little kittens who’ve since found their new home — now I’m ready to find mine! I am an extremely social and active little kitty. When people walk by me, I’ll often reach my little paw out and ask for a string toy to chase! I had to spend a good part of my kitten-hood being a mom, so  I still have a ton of playful kitten energy left in me.  When playtime is over, I’m ready for some serious snuggles. I’m a pretty floppy kitty and don’t mind being handled and held. I haven’t shown that I’m a huge fan of other kitties but since I’m young and so social I could probably learn to live around them in the right home. I seem pretty curious about dogs and am fantastic with children so I think I’d do great in most any home — as long as there are people around to play, pet, and snuggle all day long! Looking for a darling little kitty like me? Stop by Pixie today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and microchipped for an adoption fee of $100.
