This is Hops. Friends call him Hopsy Bopsy! He is 9 years old and loves to have his chin scratched and his chest rubbed. He is a very affectionate purr ball who is often making muffins and shakes his tail like a rattlesnake when he rubs up against you. He is gentle and does not bite or scratch even when he is being fussed with for routine nail trimmings. He is accustomed to sleeping at the foot of the bed and spends most of the day gazing out of his favorite window. He is an indoor cat and is in good health although he was treated for a UTI about 6 months ago and is now on a special diet to prevent future urinary issues (Adult Urinary & Hairball Control Chicken Recipe Dry Cat Food). He is a big scaredy-cat and does take some time to warm up to new people. He is not a fan of vacuums or dogs. He would be happiest in a home where he will be the only pet and his new owner is patient about getting to know him, allowing him a quiet place to hide when he is feeling nervous.

I am hoping to find Frank, this awkward little 14 lb. fluff-muffin, a new home. 

His ideal home would include another pet to snuggle with (and follow around), few stairs, and a human companion that is home more often than away. 

He is somewhere in the 7-10 year old range. He is very low maintenance, no aggression, likes all new people and things, great on leash, good with dogs, cats, and kids, and just generally wants companionship. He is neutered, up to date on all shots, and I’d be happy to provide his vet records. He is house broken, but is used to having a dog door. One 15-20 min walk a day is plenty but not 100% necessary. His back legs do not quite join to his hips correctly. This causes some limited movement, but no pain…mainly he’s a wide sitter, a slow walker and not great with stairs. Watching him pounce on a toy is one of the cutest things on the planet. 

I adopted him about two years ago, and having him as a companion during the past year of working from home has been awesome. However, I just recently lost my other dog to a tumor, and after 15 years of being a dog mom… it’s time for a break. Combined with the fact that my home has way too many stairs, and that I will be going back to a full work schedule soon – I am just not the home he deserves to have right now. 

Please let me know if you are interested or have questions. 

Thank you!

“Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl!” Well back in the old days I was anyways. At 11 years old, I am mostly all about the naps now…after a nice brisk walk around the block of course. If you can believe it, I am a Min Pin/Pug mix weighing in at about 15lbs. Though I look a bit like a pug in the face, I definitely have more of a personality of a min pin: sassy, quirky, bold and adorable. After the dancing days, I am ready to settle into a quiet retirement home in a low key area or suburb away from the busy city life. I have already done the lights camera action and now I am more about snoozing on the couch next to my favorite person. I am a sensitive gal who takes a little time to open up to new people, so I am looking for an adult only house. But if you have treats, well I will be your best friend right off the bat! I can be a little barky if new people come to the door, so a low foot traffic home would be best. I am so so sweet once I open up, and even love to sit in your lap! I am not much of a player, so the only activity I really like are my walks in quiet areas. I have met other dogs my size and have done just fine, so a mellow adult dog in the home would just be fine. But I am also happy to be your shining star! No kitties in my home please. Full of love and cuddles, I am ready to find my forever person today! Fill out an application today in order to set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $350. Looking to foster me while I find my forever home?

Hi, I’m Bruno! I arrived in Portland from Texas on April 16th. My new family here in Portland has a big yard, kids, another 1-year-old dog to play with, lots of treats, Kongs, and yummy food. We go on walks, car rides, and I’m even enrolled in dog training classes through the Oregon Humane Society! I’ve been a great student and the trainers love me! I love to play! I’ll bring balls right to your feet after you’ve thrown them far!

Well, sadly my new mom’s grandma has Alzheimer’s disease and in the short month she waited for me to arrive from Texas, her health declined and now requires more care. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for me. My mom feels
horrible about losing me but she is dealing with more than she can handle right now. We’ll both be sad but we have confidence that my next family truly will be my forever family!

A little more about me! I’m your typical pittie/boxer mix. I’m a year old and about 70 lbs. I’m full of love, loyalty, energy and strength. I just want to be near you all the time. Can I sit on your lap? Lay on top of you? Follow you everywhere… even to the bathroom? I’m a big boy so I hope you’re strong because I still tend to pull a bit on walks. My new mom uses an Easy Walker harness and that definitely helps. I’m neutered, microchipped, up to date on all vaccines (next
rabies due in July), I’m established at Midway Vet, I have Trupanion pet insurance which can transfer to you if you wish, and recently tested negative for heartworm.

Here’s what I NEED: To help set your mind at ease, I’ve met with a behavior specialist and we got along great! She thinks I’m a great dog but do have a few requirements. She feels I’ll do best as an only dog or to be with an older stable female dog who will help me learn proper manners so that I can develop into “a gentleman and a scholar.” To set me up for success please no cats or other small animals. As you read, I’ve grown up with small children and I do
love them but I’m a big boy and may knock them over. I think 10 and up will suit me best! I’m crate trained but due to the pandemic, I was never left alone for long hours. My ideal home will have a schedule and lifestyle where I won’t be alone for more than 3-4 hours at a time. We can slowly work to increase that time. I sleep in my crate at night with minimal protest. I also require your unconditional love, a large fenced yard to run, playdates if I’m an only dog, patience and willingness to work with me as I’m in the midst of adolescence and have a lot of learning to do (but treats and positive reinforcement work great!).

There will be a rehoming fee of $250, crate and a few other supplies included. If you think you are up for being my forever family, please contact Stephanie Fjeld at srfjeld@gmail.com and she’ll send you an application. Thank you!!!

How do you do?! My name is Princess and I am a darling little 6 year old chihuahua mix weighing around 7lbs. I am very sweet, but can take some time to warm up to new people and new situations. Right now, I am looking for a foster home where I can get some rest out of the shelter while continuing to come out of my shell! I am looking for a chihuahua experienced foster in quiet adult only house set up. A yard would be preferred since I am not a huge fan of walks but would still love the opportunity to be outside on those sunny days. I don’t mind other animals, whether it be dog or cat, though prefer mellow dogs my around my size. Once I open up, I am very silly and snuggly! If you are interested in fostering me while I search for my forever home, email info@pixieproject.org

Bobby is a year and eleven month old seal point siamese cat. She has a gorgeous darker coat that shines in the light. She is looking for a home with no dogs, cats or young children. She needs someone who can give her lots of attention without other animals confusing her or over-stimulating her. Bobby is full of personality, she is a queen of her kingdom! She is always curious and interested in all new things, people and toys. She is also one of the most playful cats you will ever meet! She loves playing with her toys and also loves hunting for treats we have placed for her around the house. Because of her age though, she is still learning how to play properly, and if she feels you aren’t paying enough attention or playing right, she can turn her energy towards you. But she is learning to take breaks when this happens by my partner and I redirecting her and walking away. Bobby loves to let her personality shine through her songs and phrases too. She will always let you know when she wants to hang out, and she will let you know when she is done. Bobby tends to let you know how she is feeling through her body language immediately, and also with her mouth. She tends to let people know when she is overstimulated with bites on the arm or hand when she wants to be left alone, or if she didn’t like something. We have been working with her to understand she doesn’t need to bite and can let us know in other ways, and we have definitely seen her understanding better, though she still uses it quite often to communicate. If you are not okay being bitten or scratched while working with her to improve her manners, this isn’t the cat for you. She has never been an outdoor cat but in the right situation that could allow her to get some energy out and that would be greatly beneficial. Bobby is a super smart lady with a grand personality, and while she still needs some help learning and understanding some things, she is an incredibly affectionate and loving little lady.

Oh hello there! Just waking up from the best afternoon nap. Ahh, so refreshing! I always have to catch up on my beauty sleep because you never know when the pupparazzi might strike. My name is Charlie and I make 13 years old look good. And fun too! At 9 lbs, I am silly and super sweet gent whose cute face is so adorable that everyone thinks I should be on all the magazine covers. Despite all the fans and popularity, I am quite the humble dude who enjoys the quiet life! Whether it’s burying myself in the blankets for a snooze or some cuddles, or if it’s enjoying the grass beneath my feet on my walks around the block, I am a simple guy who loves the simple things. My foster mom says that when I hear the word “outside” I just get so excited and wiggly. It is very cute! I can get a little overwhelmed by things like bicycles or loud trucks, so places like downtown are not ideal, and I would be much happier in a lower traffic area in town. I still sometimes like to play with toys and if you are sitting on the couch, I will set one down by your feet and look at you to throw it! The game doesn’t last very long but it is still super fun. I am very social and am happy to be around other mellow pups like myself. But I do tend to like to chase kitties sometimes, so none in my home please. I am still coming out of my shell more and more each day and greet new human friends over 12 with happy fully body wags. Sensitive, sweet and spry, I am just looking for a quiet retirement home full of snuggles, lots of love and some tasty treats too! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped with a dental scheduled at Pixie and recent bloodwork with an adoption fee of $350.

Cora was a feral that showed up on our farm and took to living under a shed. She started attacking her tail, leaving it bloody and mangled so we live-trapped her and took her to the vet where she was diagnosed with Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome, a neurological disease where her nerves attack her so she attacks back. The initial prognosis was bleak. There’s no cure and her symptoms were severe. However, we didn’t want to give up on her so started her on high-quality (freeze-dried) cat food and medication, and moved her indoors. It took a while, but Cora started healing!

Cora’s transformation has been amazing! Her tail has healed completely and she no longer attacks it. She constantly purrs, loves to be pet, and loves to play with her catnip mouse and other toys. She really can’t get enough attention! She’s become such a sweet cat. The vet estimates that Cora is between 5-8 years old. She’s passed all her vet exams, is up on her shots, and her teeth look good. Aside from her FHS issue, she’s in great health. It’s assumed at this time that she will need to continue her medication and high-quality food to manage the FHS.

The perfect home for Cora would be a place that’s calm (probably no kids or other pets) and where she can live indoors. A fairly regular routine is also important as she needs her meds in the morning and evening every day. (The good news is that the medication is added to her food and she eats it without a problem!) Large, unexpected noises and movements scare her, but with a little patience, she will adjust to the right home and be a wonderful, loving companion.

For more info on Cora, you can read about her at https://kerriehubbard.com/coras-story/ or contact Shelley at 503-757-6151.
