The Pixie Project nonprofit animal rescue and retail store has announced that thanks to a successful auction in 2011, the facility will expand to accommodate 20 new kennels and a communal doggie play area. Currently, the lack of space only allows for two dogs to be housed at Pixie; all other dogs in the program go into foster care. The expansion will take place over the summer. During the remodel, Pixie’s retail store will be closed July 1 – Sept. 1, though staff will still be available by phone and email. Details PixieProject.org.
