You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its tenacity. We would all love its will to reach the sun. Well, we are the rose this is the concrete and these are my damaged petals.’ ‘• Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew from Concrete

We would like to introduce Sid, a 4-5 year old 50 lb. hound mix who arrived in Portland from Kaua`i on Christmas Eve in search of his forever home. One look at Sid and it is apparent his life had been rough. His tail was crudely cut off and two deep scars around his neck are evidence of a life on a chain. Sid, who likes to go as Sidn’t Vicious, does not let his rough beginnings get him down, and thinks his scars make him rather edgy and cool.   He loves affection from humans and would make a faithful companion who would be happy to accompany you on walks, jogs, and hikes.   Sid is residing at Dogtribe Doggy Daycare where he has met all sorts of dogs’¦he does particularly well with females and mellow boys.   He is very smart and enjoys obstacle courses and would love to try lure coursing.   Sid was most likely used as a hunting dog prior to his rescue, so we do not recommend him cohabitating with cats or other small animals.   Just one look into his soulful eyes, and you will see that Sid wants to please.   He knows basic obedience commands- heel, sit, down, place- and has had positive interactions with the other dogs in boarding.   He is neutered and current on his vaccinations.  Sid is a rose who has risen from the concrete; we celebrate his tenacity to live and love humans  despite his difficult beginnings.   For more information about Sid, please contact Dinah at dinahchao@gmail.com or call Toni at Dogtribe 503-238-0737.   Sidn’t Vicious would love to meet you!

Adoption Policy Change for 2016: Pixie will continue to collect the full adoption fee for dogs after the completion of a two-week trial, but starting January first, Pixie will require a $100 deposit from adopters when the dog is taken home. This $100 is not refundable and helps to provide the behavior assessments, any necessary veterinary care, and personalized adoption services, and will be applied towards your adoption fee.

Hi my name is Rufus. My current owner is sadly unable to keep me at her new residence. I am an awesome,affectionate,smart & loving Tonkinese   male 8yrs old indoor cat. I love to sit on your lap; enjoy your company & am an active cat that loves chasing feathery toys on a wand and enjoy being up high on my scratching tree to look outside. I will give you kisses with my nose to let you know how happy I am to be with you. I prefer to live with people that currently have no pets.
Please contact my current owner Shauna for an appointment to meet me to see if I am a good fit for you @ email – sbochsle@gmail.com

Lucy

THIS CAT  IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT CHRISTA  AT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION

Lucy is the smartest cat in the neighborhood.   Gets along well with all of her buddies outside (except that mean orange one, but he’s a bully!)   She’s only been around one dog, a very small breed, and they get along swimmingly, playing tag and such.   She also LOVES all people, not always wanting to be pet, but always rolling around, looking pretty, basking in the attention.   She’s sorta a celebrity among my neighbors (and yes, I’ve asked ALL of them if they are in a position to adopt her!)   She’s been an indoor/outdoor cat since she found me, preferring to spend ALL of her days in the sun during the summer, and ALL of her time on my lap when it’s cold!

Lucy was dumped on my doorstep, so I’m not entirely sure her age, but it’s between 4-5.   She’s a tiny little baby bear, at just under 7 lbs. She’s been spayed and vaccinated.   In the last four years though, she’s had two medical emergency vet visits, for severely impacted bowels, the first time because I didn’t know anything of her condition, and the second time, more recently, simply because I’m not able to be home enough, and wasn’t giving her regular doses of her medication.   She’s currently on cisapride (once daily) and lactulose (3 times daily).   I did have my vet tell me that he prefers Miralax (an over the counter laxative for humans) to the lactulose, which is much cheaper.   She needs the medication to keep her bowel moving and her stools loose enough to pass.   The hardest part of her condition, hands down, is that is accidentally leaks pee from time to time.   She’s so smart, and has learned to sit on her towels, but it’s still a factor.  Lucy also HATES drinking water, I bought her an electric cat watering fountain, and she was offended that I put a robot in her feeding area!   So, my solution to this has been to add enough water to her breakfast and dinner, essentially making her meals into soup and forcing water into her little body.   She’s on a raw food diet, I buy frozen “sliders” of raw chicken from Meat, a store here in Portland.   It costs me about $25 a month.   I don’t know if the raw food is essential to her health, but I do know it made it much easier to make a soupy meal that she would eat.

Mike W

THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT URSULA  AT EMAIL  BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION

Our dear Mike Wasowski was rescued a couple of months ago during one of our sterilizations campaigns in Puerto Rico. Our volunteers couldn’t leave him because he was limping and had a bad eye. He has been healing and we discovered that Mike loves toys and is full of love. Mike is in foster care with two dog sisters, and he is learning to be house-trained and walking on leash. His foster mom says he is an angel and loves him dearly. Mike is active and loves to play. He also loves children.

Mike is male, around five years and weighs 13 pounds. He was treated for heartworms, he only has three legs (but he doesn’t notice it)and can’t see in one eye. Foster mom says he behaves like a healthy dog and he even jumps higher than her other two dogs that have four legs.  For more information contact Ursula at adoptions@pranimals.org.

Jack

THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT  ANNE AT EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION

Jack is a lovely lady with beautiful soft white fur with dark ears and tail.   She is 6 years old and a real love. Unfortunately, my current move does not allow cats and I am looking to find her a new forever home as soon as possible.
Jack is an extrovert, very curious and communicative. She will help you write  an email and tell you what’s on her mind.
She has a cute pink nose. A water lover from an early age, she may peek around the shower curtain to inquire about joining you for a rinse.
Jack loves to cuddle and can often be found napping at the foot of her human’s bed.
Even though she is socialized with both cats and dogs, she would prefer to be an only.   Jack is happiest when able to be both inside and outside.
She is spayed and up to date with all shots.

Clara

THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT SALOME AT THE EMAIL BELOW  FOR MORE INFORMATION

Hello! I’m Clara, I’m less than 2 y/o and I’d love to be a part of your family! The only one I knew passed away and I was left behind with my mom and my brother. My mom went to her forever home and my brother was rescued, but why was I left behind? I know my foster mom really cares about me but she has a baby and works full time and is sad that she can’t give me as much time as she’d like to. I’m really great with other dogs of all sizes as long as I have some time to adjust to your home and I’m already crate trained! I’m not too energetic and I’ll lay down with you when you’re around. At just 40 lbs I’m a pocket sized Pittie and can be right there with you when you are ready to snuggle!    I’m ready to go home with you at no cost for transportation from any state. For more information please contact Salome at  salome_han@sbcglobal.net.
