Hello there! My name is Gibbs and I am very sweet and sensitive 7 yo yorkie mix. I am a fairly shy guy at first, but with some patience and a little bit of time, I want to be your lap cuddle buddy. I have lived with other doggies my size in the past and I have met some pups at Pixie, so another mellow doggy in my home would be just fine. Same for those kitties too. Right now, I am looking to get a little rest and relaxation out of the shelter in an experienced adult only foster home. I am a little too nervous for walks, so it would be best if there was a fenced yard or even an enclosed patio with potty pads. I am a cuddly and sweet guy, so fill out a foster application today or email info@pixieproject.org if interested in fostering me while I search for my forever home!

Georgie had a rough start in life, but that hasn’t stopped him from being the sweetest kitty! He is somewhat fearful of new situations and takes time to warm up to new people, but once he is comfortable his sweet and goofy personality makes an appearance. He loves snuggling and being carried around like a baby, and loves all toys, especially feather wand toys, tunnels, and his catnip banana. He is quite the conversationalist with an adorable repertoire of little meows and chirps, and loves to hold a conversation with you as he follows you around or plays with his toys. Once he is past the initial readjustment phase, Georgie is an “easy” cat. He stays off the counters, likes treats but is not food obsessed, doesn’t bother plants, and only scratches on the cat tree. He would be a wonderful companion for someone who has the patience to help him readjust to a new home. Because he is somewhat fearful and timid, a home with rambunctious children or dogs would not be a good fit for him.
He is being re-homed at no fault of his own, as the prior resident cat is not accepting Georgie and unfortunately neither cat is getting the space or attention they deserve. Georgie is approximately 2 years old and is completely healthy. He is FIV positive which means that he will need to be an indoor only cat. Learn more about FIV here: https://www.vet.cornell.edu/departments-centers-and-institutes/cornell-feline-health-center/health-information/feline-health-topics/feline-immunodeficiency-virus-fiv). Georgie is neutered, dewormed, and up to date on vaccines and will go to his new home with some of his stuff 🙂 If you have questions about Georgie or are interested in adding this sweet boy to your family please contact Gail at stant.ga.r@gmail.com

Hey there! My name is Marley. I’m a nine year old lab/husky/ridgeback weighing approx. 98lbs. I am a calm, reserved wise man with a soft and sensitive soul. Sometimes my puppy side comes out and I can be a playful and goofy boy.
My favorite place to be besides at your side is snuggled up on the couch or sleeping at your bedside. I am protective and loyal with the patience of a lion when it comes to small prey entering my yard. A home without cats and small animals is ideal. I enjoy walks but am quite strong. I will walk you if you let me. Someone with a confident, strong, yet soft and patient personality would suit me best. I also enjoy an adventure in the woods and the freedom to run on the beach.
Meeting new people is great once I get my initial sniff in. After that, feel free to give me your best scratches on the chest or tush! I enjoy the company of other dogs and am quite tolerant and respectful of size difference when it comes to playing. If I were to have a home with another dog, a strong and confident female who isn’t overly rambunctious would be the best fit for me. I love toys and tasty treats but can become cautious and weary if I think I have to share. Another dog who guards would not work. Small children make me anxious and nervous, so a home without children is a must.
Because I’m an older dog, my need for health-care will increase as well as the need for a home and transportation with my joints and I in mind. I have a granuloma (small open wound) that comes and goes due to excessive licking. This is something that I’ve done my entire life. A family or person(s) who has a stable income, commitment, and ability to keeping me at my healthiest and happiest is the owner for me.
If you’re looking for that calm yet goofy big softy, an companion whom will be by your side no matter what with the biggest heart, you’ve found him. And who knows, if I think you’re extra special, I just might give you a kiss. 
I am currently on the wait list for a neuter. 
My adoption fee is $400 with some refundable after the neuter.

Bonjour! My name is Madame Olivia, but you can just call me Olivia for short. I am a sweet and affectionate 9 year old kitty with gorgeous long hair that I love to have brushed. My foster says I am like the goddess of the house directing all attention to me and my beauty.  Even though I am a bit older, it doesn’t stop me from getting around and using some kitty steps to curl up on the couch next to you. I am happily content to have my chin rubbed and I will even coo like a bird as she enjoys the attention. I would like to be the star of the show with no other furry friends in the home and would enjoy a home with older kiddos over 12. A bit of a catnip and treat junkie, I love my evening routine and will remind you if you forget.  When I came to Pixie, they tested my blood since I’m a little older and discovered that I was hyperthyroid, which means that I need a daily, very affordable medication to manage my thyroid and regular bloodwork done every 6 months to 12 months.  I am truly am a goddess looking for my loving fans to adore me and give me lots of pets, and in return I will not only grace them with my presence, but give lots of love right back to you! Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $80.

Heads up! Pixie staff will be either out of the office or operating with reduced hours on December 24th, 25th, 31st, and January 1st.

We’re still receiving tons of urgent calls and emails from pet owners facing emergencies who need help, so we appreciate your patience if we’re taking an extra day to respond to non-emergencies. If you’re looking to adopt or you’ve submitted an application, we’re working as hard as we can to process everyone–we promise we’ll get back to you. Thank you for understanding!

Do you feel like there is something missing in your life? Something small, lap sized perhaps, with soulful eyes and adorable face? Well look no further as I am just the companion for you! My name is Miss Millie and I am a sweet 7-8 year old chihuahua/Dachsund mix weighing about 14lbs. Always happy to be your side, I am a fairly easy going gal who is happy to join you on your adventures. Whether it’s a camping (and by that I mean glamping) trip or a walk around the block, or just riding with as you pick up some food from the cart up the street, I am always social and eager to be a part of your day. I can be a little senstive and shy when I meet new people, but I warm up to my human friends over 10 fairly quickly. Especially with some tasty treats! My foster mom says I am excellent with the resident kitties and don’t mind seeing other dogs when we are out on our walks. I did meet some doggies at the shelter and they were pretty young and in my face which I wasn’t a fan of, but I was very appropriate signaling I was uncomfortable. Thus, I am probably not a dog park dog, but would be happy to hang with another mellow adult doggy friend. I am not much for playing with toys, but am happy to join you on a walk or short hike. And then it’s back to cuddles and naps! My foster says I do great in my crate at night and if my people need to leave for the day, I am a little sad I am not able to join, but after a few minutes I settle in and wait for your return. She describes me as a happy, wiggly, squishy, and very lovely pup who is ready to find my forever person. Will it be you? Fill out an application today to set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with a recent dental and adoption fee of $350.

Oreo loves to snuggle with other cats. He’s an inside guy and likes to hang out with you, the vet estimates that he is a little over 5 years old. He likes to be pet and will reward you with her strong purrs! He’s not confident with dogs and will be shy around young children. Oreo is fixed and has had all his shots when he first moved in with me. When he’s hungry he can definitely track you down and have a vocal chat with you and do a little circle dance. All in all he is very sweet and just wants someone to love him.
