THE STORY:

3 months ago I walked into the Pixie Project building in NE for the first time ever and walked out with Zeus. Odds are if you're at this website, then you already know the amount of love, laughter, and happiness Zeus has brought into my life...but what you may not know is that I've called and e-mailed the Pixie Project staff at least 8 different times in the past 12 weeks:
"Zeus is making a weird noise!", "Zeus and my parents' dog don't get along!", "Zeus slipped on the ice but seems fine but i'm still worried!", "Zeus barked!"
Every ridiculous moment of panic was respectfully and patiently answered, my fears were calmed, and any resource I needed was immediately given to me. Did I mention the Executive Director happily gives out her cell phone to pixie parents like myself? Dedication to the mission doesn't begin to describe the Pixie Project...
Pixie Project isn't just a shelter- they are a resource and a part of my dog's extended family.

I owe them so much gratitude for bringing me and Zeus together, but even more for the support and encouragement they have offered since. So I will be giving back the best way I know how; by bowling and fundraising!

Our bowling team, "Big Pig" is named after Zeus, the one and only PiggyBear (He snorts and cuddles- the name makes too much sense if you hear him) and we will participating in the Furbowl Fundraiser, a bowling event to raise money for the Pixie Project. Big Pig consists of myself and some other damn fine bowlers. To sponsor our team click on the DONATE button in the right column of this page.

The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption center and pet supply store in Portland, Oregon. Pixie’s goal is to help alleviate overcrowding and lower euthanasia rates at high-intake county shelters by taking adoptable animals and matching them with loving forever homes. To learn more about the Pixie Project check out: http://www.pixieproject.com.

The Furbowl Fundraiser is on February 19, 2011 so please donate soon! The Furbowl Fundraiser consists of 36 bowling teams. Each bowling team is striving for strikes and spares, but more importantly is striving to raise money for Pixie. Generous Pixie supporters have agreed to match the amount a team fundraises if that team raises more than $750.00. Please help us at least meet that goal! If we can reach $750, we can double our impact.

Thank you to everyone who has and will support Pixie, and many kisses from the Big Pig himself (who is snoring on the couch next to me as I type this).
