Suki is cuddly and is a talker! Especially in the mornings! She has lived with other cats in the past but has generally been the only one in the household. I think she wouldn’t mind other companions and is quite social, but needs a generally quiet/loving environment. She is around 13 years old and fixed.
1.5-2 years ago she had a sprained hamstring and went to Buckman Vet. She had a minor re-injury a couple weeks ago but is fine now. Her health is good, but isn’t able to jump the way she used to and care needs to be taken with that. Re-injuring her leg is a possibility. She is needy, and currently has a mixed diet of dry and wet food. Mainly for keeping her hydration at the right level.
I want her to have a great home so if interested please contact Chris: 503-975-8897 (call/text) or Chris58744@fastmail.com

“The sun will come out, tomorrow. Betcha bottom dollar that tomorrow, there will be sun”. Hello! My name is Annie and with me around, it always seems to be sunny! I am an adorable and sweet 7.5 yo yorkie mix weighing in around 12 lbs. I absolutely adore being around my favorite people and am quite a social gal with my two legged friends over 8! Though I am not necessarily what you would call a cuddler, in the beginning especially, but my foster mom says that I do like to be involved in whatever is going on. Thus, I like to join her for yard work, cooking, watching some tv, and any other adventures she decides on. As long as I am with you, I don’t care what we do! I am a very playful pup, often times trying to bait you in to playing fetch by throwing my toys towards you! Being a super smart terrier, I am very inquisitive and an explorer, and take quickly to training. I can sometimes be a little vocal when expressing myself, so I would need an owned home in a lower traffic area. Wanting all the attention for myself, I am not a huge fan of other dogs or cats and would be happier as the only animal in the home. Silly, confident, and oh so bright, this little orphan Annie is all ready to find her forever family. “Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow. It’s only a day away…” So fill out an application and we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Can’t stop staring at the cutie on on the left?! That’s me, Abby! I tend to steal the limelight from my brother, but we are both pretty adorable, don’t cha think? At 2 years old and around 9 pounds, I am a small but exuberant yorkie mix. My brother, Charlie, he is a silly 9 year old shih tzu mix weighing in at 14lbs. We are one dynamic duo and it is imperative we stick together! Ok, well honestly, I am sure Charlie could do without me. But I would miss him too much and I am making sure this team sticks together. We are a hilarious comedy duo sure to make anyone smile! We especially love being around our favorite human pals over 12 and will ask for pets and attention. As you can see, I also enjoy playing with my favorite toys, so I am always up for a game of fetch! I have a little bit more energy than Charlie since I am a bit younger, but we tucker each other out by putting on our comedy sketches and routines. We enjoy our daily walks together or would be happy to catch some rays in the backyard too. No kitties in our home please! Charlie likes to flirt and play with other dogs, but if we are playing together I tend to get a little protective of him. I am his little sister after all! So we would do best as the only two pups in the home. You wouldn’t need much more entertainment than us anyways! We would love an owned home in a bit of a lower traffic area versus downtown. I just sometimes get a little nervous when performing for such big crowds. We are definitely ready to make this duo a trio and can’t wait to find our forever home where we can expand our act together! Maybe even some magic tricks?! So “Abracadabra!” and fill out your application today! We come to you fixed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated with an adoption fee of $350.

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.

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.

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.

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.
