Michael has been volunteering at Pixie for exactly one year! A twice-a-week volunteer, Michael helps take care of the deep cleaning and organizing projects that keep the shelter tidy and running smoothly. He’s always extremely eager to work on whatever project we come up with next, no matter how un-glamorous it is. When he’s not at the shelter, he spends a lot of time spreading the word on Pixie’s work throughout the community. Thank you, Michael!

My name is Smokey and I am truly a sweetheart… I am looking for my furever home, but in the meantime a loving Kitty Mom has fostered me since November. We are taking our time to find the best fit for me. I had been an outside kitty as of last April 2018 at someone else’s place I found on my journey. She couldn’t afford to feed me anymore and it was getting too cold outside; after an ad was placed for fostering me I have been with my foster Kitty Mom ever since. She already has a cat and dog, and they aren’t very accepting of me, I’m sure it is because I’m so pretty and they are jealous of their Mom’s time. She had me checked and I was chipped in 2004 as a kitten. We were all surprised that I could be 15, because I have so much energy for a senior. I’m in my own room for now, but can’t wait to be with my new owner in our own home. All I want is to have companionship, love and time to cuddle on a warm and loving lap. I still have a lot of playfulness in me, I love to play with toys, and run and jump around on my cat tree. I’m ready to make you the purrfect companion. I’m a gentle, nurturing older soul that still shines… I would be ideal for an older family or a perfect kitty for someone who wants a quiet, friendly pet with good house manners. Despite my age, I’m young at heart, I have a cool and calm nature when I want to, but with that said, I still of course love to play, and have plenty of affection to give away. If you want a balanced, loving kitty I’m the one for you! I will have all my vet checks up to date when you are ready for me.

Mavis is 7, very healthy – she has lost over 7 pounds under my care (she was previously 20 lbs when I got her 1 year ago). She is very chill, and loves to lay with you in bed, or sit with you on the couch. She loves to cuddle on her own terms and will actually lay a paw on your leg or arm sometimes (it’s the cutest)! She doesn’t like her tummy or paws touched! She is fully indoors, she is up to date medically. A good home for her has a few soft blankets, a laser pointer, a window to look out of, and some hours alone (we are very busy people and she loves her time to roam the home alone). I am UNSURE how she is around other cats. All other owners have said that she had been the only cat in the household. 

If you’d like to meet Mavis, please contact Noelani at 503-841-0466 (call anytime on the weekends, 5:45-9 pm weekdays) or email at: noelanigonzales44@gmail.com

My foster mom says that I can be energetic when I ready to play, am very treat motivated, and love to be picked up and held. Though I do ok with her older mellow pups, my biggest desire is to have your attention all to myself. I do like to chase after squeaky toys for a bit, but then it’s back to cuddling on couch! Adorable, sassy and hilarious, add a little sweetness to your life today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi!   My name is J.T.T.!   That’s short for Jonathan Taylor Thomcat, “Stray Kitty Heartthrob.” *wink* I guess that’s because I tend to melt hearts with my boyish charm wherever I go!   Let’s see… I am about 4 years old.   I’m up to date on all of my vaccines.   I’m neutered, FeLV and FIV negative, and already microchipped!   I’m looking for a forever home with people who understand cats and will respect my personal space.   I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of snuggling, but I am really social and love hanging out with my people.   Oh!   And I love to play!   I love chasing my own tail, chasing my people, chasing flies, chasing lasers… I am not above spazzing out over tiny, barely visible specs of dust floating in the air.   I’m not a big fan of kids, but I would LOVE a young, social cat buddy to play with!!   I’m not equipped for the outdoors either, so indoor homes only please (although I would LOVE to go to a home with a ‘catio!’).   If I sound like the right kitty heartthrob for you, my foster family I would love to meet you!

Email Karen at karanimal84@yahoo.com for an adoption application.   My adoption fee (I’m worth it!) is $100.

Hello friends! My name is Finley and I am a happy go lucky 9 month old Boxer mix weighing around 40lbs. My name means “fair heroine” and that’s perfect, because I am here to save the day! Whether its putting a smile on your face with my silly playful shenanigans or taking in the beautiful nature scenery of the PNW, everything we do together makes it ten times better! I am such a friendly gal who is always eager to meet my human pals over 14 and my doggy friends too. I am in playgroup with some awesome pals and we have so much fun together! No kitties in my home please. Since I am young and like to stretch my legs, I would do best in a home owned by my adopters. I am a tenacious and determined gal who is very smart and quick to learn! I already know some of the basics, but would be eager to know more as PUPPY CLASS IS MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION!  I traveled here all the way from Alabama and I just love exploring this side of the country, and I would be an excellent hiking companion! At the end of a long day, I would love nothing more than to curl up on the couch with you and watch some tv. I am just an adorable, spunky, and social gal looking for my next big adventure! Will it be 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.

Hi! My name is Hardy after my favorite celebrity Tom Hardy. We have a lot in common you see. We are both tall, handsome, and love other dogs! I am a hilarious 7-8 month old Border Collie mix weighing in around 45lbs. I am a young and active lad hailing from the South! With my breed mix, it’s safe to say that I am also highly intelligent. I already know some of the basics like sit, but am eager to learn more, AS A TRAINING CLASS IS MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I do have a fair amount of energy and would be an excellent hiking companion and with some time, I can see myself being an excellent jogging buddy. I also really enjoy playing with my doggy pals and when I am with my human pals over 15, I enjoy playing fetch with either balls or squeaky toys that I like to fling in the air and catch before they land. I am just such a silly guy and am always ready to entertain with my funny antics! No kitties in my home please. Being such an active guy, an apartment lifestyle is not for me, and would do best in an owned home to stretch my long long legs in. At the end of a long day, I am ready to snuggle up with my favorite people while watching some of my favorite movies. What shall we watch tonight? Batman, Venom, Inception maybe? Any movie of Tom’s is ok by me! Smart, active, charming, and of course super handsome, I am ready to star in a movie of our own. Grab the camera, fill out an application, and we can set up a meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi everyone!  My names is Sarah and you might recognize me as I am usually with my brother Kibbles. We thought we loved each other, but it took us being separated to help me see that I was much better off without him. In fact, I have gotten so much more confidence and am way less shy without my brother around (And he is doing much better without me too!). I am a sweet 11 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in at around 15lbs. I can still be a tiny bit shy at first, but open up super quickly now. I am doing better about going outside on walks. But my ideal home would have a fenced yard I can mosey around in. I would love to be your shining star in the home, but would be ok with a chill mellow dog who isn’t super in my face. After all, I am in foster with 3 fellow chihuahuas! Since I am a bit older, I would love to retire into a home with lots of snuggles, cuddles and pets in a quirt adult only home. I am just a sweet gal blossoming into a much more confident lady who would love to have a home of her own. Will it be yours? Fill out an application today, so we can meet!  I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an up to date dental and bloodwork with an adoption fee of $250.
