Linda is an absolutely amazing cattery volunteer who’s been with Pixie for more than FIVE years. She comes at least one (but usually two) mornings a week, every week, to clean up after and care for all the kitties in the building. She has also fostered and adopted cats from us, uses her years of service industry experience to help us at our huge annual fundraiser, and is a wonderful, sweet person that lights up the shelter and makes everyone smile whenever she’s here! She’s an absolute doll with all of the cats and definitely provides a ton of comfort to each and every one. Last year, she was the recipient of our Cattery Award and she deserves to be recognized for her amazing work. Thank you, Linda!

Hello! How do you do? My name is Henry and it is such a pleasure to meet you! I am an adorable 2 year old chiweenie at around 13lbs. I can be a little shy at first, but a quick walk around the block has me opening up in no time! I just love our walks and hikes so much that it really helps boost my confidence. You see, I originally came from a home who wasn’t very nice to me. Then a nice lady swooped in and gave me all the love and attention I could ever ask for. She sadly has passed away and I am looking for another family to share adventures with. I absolutely adore playing with my doggy friends and having another four legged pal in the home would be so great! I am pretty scared of kitties and stay away from them. Since I am a sensitive guy, I would do best in an active adult only owned home. After a long day of playing and hikes, it’s time for snuggle time on the couch as I burrow closer to you under the blankets. Cute, silly, and cuddly, I am ready to start exploring with my new family today! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

80’s dancing right into your heart is me, Baby! I am a 1 year old Terrier/Chi mix weighing in at just 7lbs. Though I am small, I have a big heart that is full of love to give to you. I can be a shy girl at first, but after about 10 minutes with some treats, time, and some salsa music, I am ready to burst into my confident, energetic self! You know what they say : “Nobody puts Baby in a corner!” Once we get acquainted, I am ready to start practicing our moves for the next dancing competition. I am a smart learner and very agile, so I am sure I will get the sequence down quickly! Speaking of activity, I always start off my days with a nice walk around the block or two to stretch my legs. Right now, my foster home is a bit outside the city, so an owned home in a quieter neighborhood would be ideal! I am always down anytime for a little fetch and tug. I am a young gal with a lot of energy after all! I do great with the other pups, though I can have a bit of a pushy playstyle and do best with smaller pups. A confident dog savvy kitty in the home would be ok too! I would much enjoy an active yet low foot traffic adult only home.  Adorable, sassy, funny, and oh so sweet, I am ready to have the time of my life with you! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

How do you do? My name is Isadora Duncan or Izzy for short. I am a sweet and proper long haired Chihuahua gal weighing only around 8lbs. At 11 years old, I may not have all the dances moves I had when I was a pup, but I have my spunky moments and love to go for long walks on the beach, or playing with the rest of my puppy dance troupe in my foster home. As you can see in the pictures above, my favorite activity nowadays is sunbathing. I can barely keep my eyes open as soon as that bright light hits my face. It’s just so relaxing! My foster mom says I am have been perfect since day one and that I have very nice basic skills such as scratching at the door when needing to go outside and coming when called. She says I have been a super easy lady who just loves everyone and everything! Even those kitties too! Since I am a bit older, I would prefer a quiet adult only home to retire to. Just like my style of dance, I am a go with the flow gal with lots of love and quite the fashion sense! Adorable, sweet and affectionate, I will dance into your heart in no time. So fill out an application today, and we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Phoebe and I am an adorable 6 year old Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua mix weighing in at 11 lbs. I am a small gal hailing from a tiny rural community in California. Though I am not used to the big city, I do pretty good on my afternoon strolls around the block and would be happy in a quieter part of town. I am a sensitive gal who can take a second to warm up, but once I do, I instantly bond and am happy to be your lap companion! Snuggling is my favorite past time and I enjoy burrowing under the blankies and getting really close to you to absorb all the warmth. Since I can be a bit sensitive, I would do best in an adult only owned home with not a lot of foot traffic. I have met some doggy friends here at Pixie and am not a fan of crazy puppy energy in my face, but have some other mellow pups that just kind of hang with me, and that is more my style. But would happy to be your shining star as well! No kitties in my home please. I am just a cute as can be eccentric lady ready to share couch cuddles with my special someone. Will it be you? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

“From Television City in Hollywood, It’s the Carol Burnett Show…” Hello, hello! My name is Carol and as you can see by my beautiful red coat, I take after my favorite comedian and actress who was an inspiration to all. But good looks aren’t the only thing we have in common! Being a chiweenie at 2 years old and around 8 lbs, I am also an inspiring actress hailing from a rural town in California. As you can see, I am all about smiling and love to make people do the same! Though I can be mildly shy at first, I love to have everyone’s attention and warm up pretty quick. Next thing you know, I am cuddling up in your lap and asking for more affection from my human pals over 12. After some cuddle time, it’s back to my funny and playful antics which tend to make everyone laugh. Though I am just a tiny gal, I love to play fetch with those squeaky toys! As far as my fellow furry acting companions, I seem to do the best with those doggy pals that just want to hang. I’m not too much into that in your face puppy play and those kitties happen to be pretty scary, so none in my home please! I can get a little bit jumpy is higher traffic areas, so a quieter neighborhood would be preferred. Every show must come to a close, but with you as my audience, I will always be sure to entertain for years, whether with my funny play styles or nice cuddles on the couch. So fill out an application today and we can meet. Let me help turn that frown upside down! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Trail Blazer star Jusuf Nurkić spent an afternoon at Pixie as part of a promotion with CarMax to highlight some of his favorite places in Portland! Jusuf loves cats and we had a blast showing off the shelter and the adoptable animals in our care.






“It’s the Soames and Zelda show, starring: Zelda the hilarious older Jack Russell Terrier who loves to go on walks, play with other mellow dog friends, and whose sarcastic banter and silly but wise proverbs leave you laughing for days! And Soames, part muppet, part Tibetan Spaniel, this 5 year old rag a muffin pup’s silly antics, good looks, and charm make him the talk of the town! Together they learn to laugh, love, cherish, and make life a party!” What do you think? Sound like a TV show you would watch?! Zeldy is skeptical, but I just know we would become famous! After all, we are 2 happy go lucky pups who are eager to find our new family. We are both very social pups, who don’t mind hanging out with other mellow dogs, cats, and kids over 12! We both enjoy our daily walks together and Zelda even loves to play fetch with her favorite toys still! Me, I am not too much into toys, but do enjoy nice pets from my human pals. We are just a dynamic enjoying each other and all other aspects of life. Always positive and upbeat, we are looking for a family to share our love with today. So fill out an application and we can set up a meet! We come to you fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with recent dentals and an adoption fee of $350.
