Facts about Pixie

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
After managing to survive on the streets of Palmdale for at least two weeks, one-year-old Pixie was safely caught by the founder of All Animal Search and Rescue Team, Lorena Zeballos.

Because it wasn’t clear if the terrified chihuahua had been abandoned or if her owners were looking for her, Lorena took Pixie to the Palmdale shelter, where she went unclaimed for over a month.

Lorena reached out to MAPS not long after the rescue was launched, and told co-founder Melissa Lampert that Pixie was running out of time at the crowded shelter.

After driving out to Palmdale the next day, Melissa decided she couldn’t leave Pixie behind when she instantly climbed into her lap at the shelter and curled up, her entire body shaking with fear.

Originally timid and fearful with a habit of keeping her head down low and ears back, Pixie has transformed before her MAPS foster family's eyes. She is becoming more confident and relaxed every day, and keeps her head held high and ears perked up as she trots around her foster home, which she shares with several cats.

A total lap dog, Pixie always wants to be near her foster mom and loves to cuddle, run, and play. She will need experienced adopters because she can get a little protective of her foster family and needs slow introductions to new people.

Pixie would probably do well in just about any home where she can gets lots of love, attention, and play time!

About Madeline's Angels Pet Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Madelines Angels Pet Sanctuary (M.A.P.S.) is a foster-based animal rescue in Santa Clarita dedicated to helping find forever homes for pets in need. The organization was founded in 2016 by Melissa Lampert, a lifelong animal lover with over 10 years of experience in the animal care and rescue world, and her family. We firmly believe: "Saving one animal won't change the world, but for that one animal, the world will be forever changed..."

Our Adoption Process...

We ask that potential adopters fill out an adoption application before meeting the pet. If the "Meet and Greet" goes well, then a simple home check is needed before the signing of the adoption contract. Our adoption fee for dogs is $150, and for cats $100. All of our rescues have been seen by a veterinarian, are spayed or neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped. Our fees help us cover those expenses in addition to the daily care of the animals. (Please note that we are currently in the process of becoming an official 501(c)3, so adoption fees are not tax deductible at this time. However, all fees go directly toward the care of the animals.)
