Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
The Pixie Project, an animal rescue and adoption center in Portland, Oregon, has expanded their location in Northeast Portland and will hold an open house to debut their new facilities on September 19th. This grand opening celebration will be in conjunction with the launch of Fetch Eyewear, The Pixie Project’s partner company. Fetch Eyewear recently changed their name from Amy Sacks Eyewear to better reflect their mission to support animal rescue and advocacy. Fetch Eyewear will donate all corporate profits to The Pixie Project.
In the past five years, The Pixie Project has coordinated 2,500 adoptions of shelter animals and is hoping that their newly expanded facilities will continue to increase that number. The Pixie Project’s new adoption center includes an open play area for animals, 20 new kennels, a puppy ward, and an on-site veterinary clinic.
“These exciting changes will allow us to not only increase our adoption numbers and support overcrowded county shelters, but also offer low cost veterinary care and spay and neuter surgeries to pets of Portland's homeless and very low income communities,” says Amy Sacks, Executive Director of The Pixie Project.
With their newly remodeled facilities, it is The Pixie Project’s goal to place 1,000 animals in permanent homes in the next year. Fetch Eyewear has pledged to help The Pixie Project achieve this goal by donating all profits from the sale of Fetch Frames to Pixie’s animal rescue efforts. Fetch Eyewear is excited to announce a rebranding campaign that will align their company image with this mission.
“Since the beginning, the driving force of this business has been to create sustainable long term funding for animal rescue and advocacy. The name and branding of Fetch Eyewear puts that mission front and center,” says Ann Sacks, founder of Fetch.
Those interested in the work of Fetch Eyewear and their fall collection of frames can visit a preview of their newly designed website and sign up for news and updates through the Fetch mailing list. The launch party will celebrate both The Pixie Project and Fetch Eyewear as they toast to exciting company milestones and a shared vision for improving animal welfare.
The launch party will take place from 6-9 p.m. at The Pixie Project, 510 N.E. MLK Jr. Blvd., and at Spirit of 77, located next door at 500 N.E. MLK Jr. Blvd. Fans can RSVP by joining the Facebook Event online, but the party will be open to the general public as well. Guests are invited to tour the new Pixie Facilities, view and try on the entire Fetch Eyewear collection, and enjoy games, food, beer, and wine at Spirit of 77. Fetch Eyewear will also provide a photo booth for the event, taking snapshots of guests with new friends and Fetch Frames.
