The Pixel Fund is a division of Pixel’s Posse, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Maine with outreach in Georgia and Florida. Completely run by volunteers, the mission is to save lives of shelter pets through education, advocacy, and rescue efforts, and through participation in community activities.
We believe strongly in the need to spay and neuter pets to prevent needless shelter deaths through unwanted litters and overpopulation. We believe strongly in responsible pet ownership, appropriate training, and unlimited affection. We believe everyone is capable of doing one small thing, taking one small action, to save a life.
Some people don’t spay and neuter, leading to unplanned, unwanted litters dumped at shelters where puppies are at serious risk of diseases like parvovirus, and almost certain death, if they are not euthanized first. Black dogs and cats are at a much higher risk of being killed because there is a stigma attached to the color of their fur. In some communities, certain breeds are outlawed and may be seized and killed just for the breed they were born as! Backyard breeders and puppy mills contribute to pet overpopulation, disease and higher incidence of shelter killing.
Animals have no voice, no choice, no vote. Mom learned all this through me and my training (pretty smart, aren’t I?). She and some like-minded folks decided to form a posse - Pixel’s Posse - to educate, advocate and give voice to my fur brothers and sisters everywhere. The Pixel Fund, part of Pixel’s Posse, a 501(c)(3), was established to raise needed funds to support rescue and advocacy groups with "paws on the ground" in places like Macon, Memphis, Mobile, and in our home state of Maine. To save lives, we work to reduce shelter admissions by addressing the issues that cause people to give up their pets, support low and no-cost spay and neuter clinics, and encourage reform of the shelter system. The Pixel Fund’s mission, plain and simple, is to save lives that would otherwise be lost to the shelter system. Thank you!
