Howdy! My name is Hank and I am a handsome 9 year old chihuahua hailing all the way from Texas. A few seconds with me, and you can instantly see that I have that welcoming Southern hospitality! Super social and eager to meet my human pals over 6, I am always the most popular one at the party and everyone always wants to say hi! Sweet as molasses, I am a chill mellow fellow with a love for cuddles and will even sprawl on my back to get some more belly rubs! My fosters say that I enjoy going on my walks and love to play fetch with my favorite toys. I have a history of living with other mellow dogs and cats, so I would be fine with either. I just don’t like a lot of puppy energy in my face and would prefer a calm female doggy sibling around my size. You can tell this ain’t my first rodeo in a home, as my fosters say I have good house manners and am very polite! Easy going, loving, and fine as frog’s hair, I am ready to lasso my way into your heart today! Fill out an application today and we can set up a meet!  I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi! Hello! My name is Little Bear and I am a tiny 7 month old Long Haired Chihuahua mix. At just barely 6lbs, I am a small guy learning all about this big big world! I am in a very important socialization stage of my puppyhood and am really looking for a patient person who isn’t gone long work hours and can really help me focus on all my training. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! As I am learning about the world, some things seem a bit scary, but my doggy friends really give me the confidence boost I need to blossom and feel safe. Thus, an adult doggy sibling who is still down to play but can also show me the ropes is definitely needed in my future home! Once I open up, I am a silly little pup who loves to run around my foster’s yard, chewing on sticks and wrestling with other pooches. Full of energy and very playful, I am a fast little rocket when it comes to playing with toys in the yard. No kitties in my home please! Since I am in a critical learning phase and need the focus to be on me, I would do best in an adult only owned home with space to romp and explore. Though I may always be a sensitive boy, with some positive reinforcement training, I can discover that the world isn’t so scary. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that I am extra food motivated, so I should be a very quick learner! Playful, silly, and so darn cute, I am eager for you to teach this Little Bear all about the big world! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

*DUE TO THE VOLUME OF EMAILS PIXIE IS RECEIVING AT THIS TIME, PLEASE ALLOW 24-48 HOURS FOR US TO PROCESS YOUR APPLICATION*

The name’s P.J.! How do you do? Looking for chill gal who can also be a weekend warrior and join you for your adventures? Well, I am your pup! At 2 years old and around 46 lbs, I am an adorable wired haired vizsla with a sweet personality. I am a fairly quiet gal and could possibly do apartment life if it was in a quiet area. Less concrete jungle like and a more chill low traffic area is more my style. Though I have a mellow vibe, I am still a young gal, so making sure I get plenty of walks during the work week and fun hikes and trips on the weekend will be a perfect outlet for me. I have lived with cats in the past, so a young dog savvy cat in the home would be ok. I love being around other dogs too, and like to hang with my foster siblings in the backyard on a sunny day. Overall, I am a very healthy lady, but I do have some allergies that require a hypoallergenic food as well as some meds should the occasional flare happen. Please email Pixie for more details! I do love to play and will sometimes throw sticks in the air to play fetch by myself! My foster mom says it is quite cute and entertaining to watch. I warm up quickly and am happy to be around my human pals over 10. Overall, I am just a delightful and  beautiful gal looking for a companion who can keep me active and give me lots of love! Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, 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.

Hilarious, tenacious and totally cute, this tiny comedian is ready to make you laugh today! My name is Jack Black and I am a 4 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at a mere 6lbs. Though I am such a tiny guy, I have a big heart that I am ready to share with my forever family! My silly antics and movements are enough to make anyone giggle. For example, when I meet new doggy friends, though I can be very forward at first, I will prance and dance, and do what I call the “Chihuahua flirt” to get the other doggies to play. And for my human pals over 10? Well I am full of face kisses and silly twirls! I can be a little bit excitable when I see other dog friends on walks, so I need an owned home in a low traffic area to practice some leash manners. But I am a fast learner, especially when there are yummy hotdogs involved! But you know what I can’t stand more than airline food? Kitties! So none in my home please. My silliness knows no bounds and I have plenty of hilarious jokes up my sleeve, ready to make my new forever family giggle! Is it fate? Is it the pick of destiny?! Let’s find out today! Fill out an application to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

♫ Coolest kid on the block, this kid won’t stop. I am always on the go until I am not. The name is Petey Pawblo and I am here to play, still working on things like “sit” and “stay. At 4 months old and just 13 lbs, my love for all people knows no bounds. A puggle is what they say I am, but whatever the mix, I am a total ham!” Whew, I spit some mad rhymes, don’t I?! Well that’s not all I can do! My silly puppy antics are also enough to turn any frown upside down. From chasing my toys to tripping over my growing puppy feet, I am quite the comedian. Being a very curious boy, I am always eager to learn more about the world and would love for you to teach me! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I enjoy playing with my dog and cat pals, and would be happy to have a calm adult dog sibling who can show me the ropes. I am a pretty needy guy and when it comes to wanting affection from my people, I just can’t get enough! It makes it harder when they have to leave for the workday, but I am learning that I  get yummy tasty kongs and treats which makes it a little better. I need an owned home with a family who has a predictable schedule to help me establish a routine and another confident dog to show me the ropes. I’m pawsitively adorable in every way and am ready to spin beats with you today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated with an adoption fee of $400.

Hello! How do you do? My name is Sophie and I am…well, what am I really? The trainer says I am what a husky would look like with all the hair! But someone else said I looked a little like a greyhound mix. All I know is that I am a 40 lbs of absolute sweetness! At just a little over a year old, I do have some young pup energy, but also enjoy couch time snuggles in my down time. Though I can take a second to warm up to my human pals, I am quite the confident pup when around my doggy pals! In fact, I am always the first one to be introduced to new doggies at Pixie since I have a great playstyle. Thus, I would do best in an owned home with another dog and no kitties please! Being very affectionate once I warm up, I enjoy being with my human pals over 12. Even though I am new to walking on a harness, I am a quick learner and would be a great walking buddy.  I am always happy to join my furry sibling and human pals wherever they go, whether it be a walk in Forest Park or camping in Mt. Hood. Sensitive, cute and lovable, I am eager to find my new family today. As they say, “A good friend listens to your adventures. A best friend makes them with you.” So let’s get started on ours today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

The COVID-19 virus is having a big impact on businesses and nonprofits in our community and Pixie is no different. Even though our shelter is closed to the public, our everyday duties and expenses haven’t slowed down. We’ve been getting questions from our amazing community on how people can help our animals—below are some ideas!

**We currently have enough foster homes for both dogs and cats! When that changes (kitten season will be here before we know it), we will post an update! ** Volunteer orientation, training, and on-boarding are also on hold for the time being.**

How to Help!
Make a Donation:
 Requests for help are not slowing down. As people’s work hours are reduced, we’re already seeing more need for pet food, veterinary care, transfers from other shelters, and owner surrenders. If you’re able, making a one-time gift or becoming a monthly donor is the quickest way to help us help our community. You can donate directly through HERE.

Grab a Wish List Item (or shop through Amazon Smile): You can check out our Wish List full of items we use every day HERE.   Items are shipped from Amazon directly to Pixie. If you’re shopping for your family through Amazon, consider using the Amazon Smile program: it’s the same website and products, but by visiting smile.amazon.com instead, .5% of your total purchase amount is donated to Pixie. THIS LINK will designate Pixie as your charity automatically.

Support Local Restaurants…And Pixie! For our fall Pixie Party fundraiser, restaurant gift certificates are always our best sellers, often going for over their value in our silent auction! Since our local restaurants need your support too, consider buying a gift certificate and donating it to Pixie for our fall auction! Your favorite restaurants get the cash they need and donations to Pixie are tax deductible. It’s a chance to make a big impact with one purchase.

Share Pixie Posts: With the shelter being closed to the public, our pets could use a little extra visibility. Consider sharing posts on your timeline to let people know that we still have amazing animals looking for homes!

Thank you everyone for all of your help—and we’ll update you as soon as we have any new information. We’ll get through this together!
