Today is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving that is providing emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Pixie is trying to help any way we can–we’re providing food and supplies to pet owners who are out of work and helping with medications and veterinary care to keep people from having to surrender their pets during the crisis. For people who are sick, losing housing, or who aren’t able to keep their pets even with Pixie providing resources and support, we’re helping to find new homes for the affected pets through our rescue program. With other shelters reducing services for the public, the need for surrender and critical care will only grow.

Please give, if you’re able. You can donate through our website or check out our Amazon Wish List. Thank you. #GivingTuesday

Hi! Hello! Are you ready to play? I sure am! My name is Chloe and I am a beautiful 1 year old Cattle dog mix weighing just 30lbs. With a spring in my step and a mind as sharp as a tack, I am a special gal looking for an experienced owner to teach me some new tricks! It can take a little for me to warm up to my new adult friends, especially men, but once I do, I am full of hugs and kisses. I can be a lot when it comes to meeting new dogs friends and not every pup loves my play style, but I have made a few friends in my foster that I really get along with. And they have thought me some nice manners! When I am not running around the play yard with my doggy pals, I enjoy playing fetch with some toys or playing other interactive food toys that help stimulate my active mind. I bet I would even love to do some fun nose work exercises if you could teach me! I am a rural gal through and through, so downtown city life isn’t for me and I would much rather run around some property than do walks in the city. I would need an experienced owned home in a low traffic neighborhood and outside the city would be ideal. I also would need an adult only home with no kids ( including future kiddos) or cats, but do need a confident adult male dog in the home who could keep up with me! Even after a day of activity,  I still love to curl up on the couch with you while we eat some popcorn and watch some movies. Smart, bubbly, very energetic, and oh so gorgeous, I am ready to play with you today! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi there! My name is Annabelle and I am a sassy and utterly adorable 7 yo Pom-chi weighing 9 lbs. If you are looking for snuggler who needs you as much as you need them, well I am your gal! I love being around my adult human pals, especially when they give me lots of skritches and belly rubs. My foster family says I am very coy and smart, and will do just about anything for some tasty treats! I will even hang out under your feet when you are cooking to make sure I catch any tasty morsels that might fall to the ground. I can be a little bit picky with my doggy friends, and have lived with a doggy my size in the past. He was very chill and mellow though, and that is more of my style. None of this puppy like energy business! I didn’t seem to pay too much attention to the office cat at Pixie, so a confident dog savvy kitty in the home would be ok. As long as I can be the one that gets to sleep in your lap during movie night, I am a happy camper. I can sometimes be a little vocal when I express myself and tend to get overwhelmed by lots of outside noises in busy areas, so I would do best in a low traffic owned home in a quiet neighborhood. I always like to follow my nose when I am out on my daily walks, sniffing out the next adventure. But then it’s back inside for some more cuddle time under the warm blankets! Silly, inquisitive, and oh so sweet, I am so ready to find my forever person today. Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

I’m David S Pumpkins! I’m a big mush and word on the street is that I’m the sweetest, most loveable cat around. At 10 years old, I’m about as mellow as you would expect me to be. Though feeding time is probably my favorite time of day, my close second is when he I to cuddle on the couch with my humans. I love chin scratches and will frequently flop over onto my back in the hopes that I will entice you into giving me a belly rub! I’m a social butterfly, and am always happy to be wherever you are in your home. If you’re cooking in the kitchen, I’ll be sitting nearby to keep you company and if you’re working from home in the office, I would love to have a chair nearby so I can sleep near you. I’m pretty good with meeting new people and will often flop over and offer the big orange fuzz once I’m comfortable. Even though I’m mostly a couch potato, I can definitely get playful and love to chase dangly toys, sparkly balls and strings! I’m also a fan of the ‘nip, and will get a little wild if you give me some.  Watching birds is another favorite pass-time, and sometimes I’ll chase them back and forth through the glass! That’s about all the outdoors I need, though, as I’m used to living totally indoors and as long as I’ve got some space to roam around inside, I’m perfectly happy staying indoors forever. I’m a sizeable kitty who was almost 30 whole pounds when I came to Pixie, believe it or not! My fosters have worked hard to get me down to a healthier weight, and now I’m just over 20lbs, which is closer to ideal for me. I will definitely need to have my weight watched in my forever home and will just need to stick to a portioned diet to make sure I don’t get obese again. That being said, I am a healthy kitty with no special needs or medical conditions at this time, and Pixie is providing a dental for me to make sure my teeth are clean and good to go! I’m used to a quieter home, though I have experience living (and cuddling with!) older children and am a truly gentle giant. I am also used to being the only pet in the house, and don’t have any interest in sharing my space with other kitties. I’m well-behaved, endlessly entertaining, and just the right amount of catty with my muted meow to let you know I’m here for you. I know I’m a special boy and I can’t wait to find my forever family! Do you think I’m perfect for you? I hope you’ll fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped (and with recent blood work and dental already done!) for an adoption fee of $80.

Hello everyone! Did my deep soulful eyes draw you in? My name is Lucius and at 5 years old and 38 lbs, I am a Southern gent looking for my forever family here in the PNW. They say I am a lab mix, but the Pixie gals have noticed that on my walks, I am all about sniffing and love to follow my nose. So there might be some hound dog in there as well! I am on the shyer side and a bit under confident, but with patience and a few tasty treats, I am ready to open up and you can tell I am eager to bond. Being on the sensitive side, I would do best in an adult only home. When I open up, I am still a pretty mellow fellow, but  occasionally the staff will see me get excited over toys and play! Because I sometimes have the tendency to be a little vocal, I would do best in an owned home in a low traffic area. Though I get overwhelmed by places like dog parks, I would be ok with a confident adult female doggy companion who can show me how to blossom and give me the confidence boost I need! No kitties in my home please. I am just a sweet, sensitive boy looking for a quiet home to call my own and get lots of pets and treats!  Fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Bonjour! Je M’appelle Gigi! Totally adorable and weighing just around the size of a croissant, I am a tiny 10 yo Chihuahua at just 4lbs. Fancy is my middle name and I take great pride in knowing all the latest fashion styles coming out of Paris. Though it can be a challenge to find things in my size, it’s not hard for me to look cute in absolutely everything! Everyone I meet says that I am a complete angel-and they aren’t lying! I am very sweet and affectionate gal who knows what I want and am happy to communicate that to you. For example, I love being with my favorite adult human pals but I don’t necessarily want to be picked up or sit on your lap. I would rather just chill next to you. I’m not an athlete and if we are going for a walk, I would much rather join you safely secured in a doggy backpack or bjorn. What can I say? I love the life of luxury! Most the time, I am a napping kind of gal but have known to get the playful zoomies from time to time. I have grown up around other dogs and mostly just ignore them. Same goes for those kitties too, so I would be ok with either in my home. Since I love being with my favorite people, I would do best in an owned home with someone who isn’t gone for long work days. My fosters say I am a truly happy and silly gal with excellent house manners, and the ability to brighten the darkest corner of any room. With my cute and hilarious antics, everyone just adores me. It’s just not hard to fall in love with these angel eyes! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350. Au Revoir!

Willy (beauty mark on lip) and Cassie (pink, patchy nose) are an adorable, fun pair of bonded kitties who would love to liven up your life! These silly teenagers are not bio siblings, but became fast friends in foster and absolutely love to romp around, snuggle and wrestle the day away. Willy is about 1&1/2 years old and is a bit of a shy guy, often taking time to warm up to new people and learning how to be confident. His bff Cassie, a 9-month-old lady kitty, really helps him feel more comfortable and is the total opposite — she’s a bold, outgoing girl who LOVES to play and will often curl up in a lap. Willy is also very playful, and can’t resist a string toy! The two will often wrestle and chase each other around the house, which is just too fun to watch! Though Willy is shy at times, he enjoys being where his people are and will come out to investigate when new people come over. He will likely take some time to feel fully comfortable in a new home, and would do best in a quieter, adult-only home, though he is very gentle. Cassie is incredibly social, and follows you wherever you go! They’ll also cuddle up or groom each other at times. and are both well behaved and easily trained. They learned very quickly that they get to walk on some furniture, but not counters or desks. Because they are such young, active kitties, they’d probably do best in a larger space where they have room to explore, play and act like the teenagers they are without being destructive. That being said, both are used to living entirely indoors and would be absolutely happy to stay that way. They are both used to living around other cats and are very respectful and open to sharing their space with friendly felines, and they do need to go home together. These kitties are healthy, full of fun and ready for their forever home! Do you think you might have the spot for them? They’d love to meet you, so fill out an application today! They come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for a combined adoption fee of $180.

Tall, blonde, and a totally hilarious comedian? Must be Dax the Shepherd of course! At 2 years old and 61 lbs, I am some sort of shepherd/husky mix with the personality of a mastiff. A total mutt for sure! I am a silly, young and energetic guy who needs lots of mental stimulation. Whether it be playing fetch in the yard or working on some interactive food toys, I am a smart boy who is easily entertained. I am pretty new to Portland and coming from a pretty rural environment in Texas, I am learning the ways of city life. But I am still a sensitive boy and would prefer an adult only (and no future kiddos) owned home in a low foot traffic area. I am a pretty pro social guy with my human friends and am definitely the class clown! I have meet some doggy friends at Pixie, so a confident adult female doggy sibling in my home would be just fine! However, places like dog parks and where there is lots of doggy traffic would be a bit too overwhelming for me, and would prefer one on one play groups instead. No kitties in my home please! Having lots of energy and being a younger pup, I could definitely learn some of the basics when it comes to training. But I am very food motivated and a fast learner, so it should be very easy! I do love going for daily walks in the  low traffic areas. And after a long day of activity, well, I am happy to join you on the couch for some maxin and relaxin. Handsome, goofy, and downright entertaining, I am ready to make you laugh today! Fill out an application, so we can arrange a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.
