SHELTER SUNDAY: Meet Tommy (Lab mix) and Melody and Harmony (black cats)
Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge teams up with NEPA Scene every week for Shelter Sunday, a post that features one dog, one cat, and occasionally some surprises up for adoption in the hopes of finding them a loving home.
Blue Chip Farm (974 Lockville Rd., Dallas) is a no-kill shelter, a place where no animal is too old or too unwanted to find a warm bed, good food, and most of all, love. Their mission is to provide a sanctuary where older, stray, abandoned, sick, or abused animals can wait to be adopted or simply live out their lives in safety and peace.
Visiting hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon-5 p.m. Other hours are available by appointment. Call 570-333-5265 or visit bcfanimalrefuge.org for more information.
Tommy is a wonderful dog looking for a wonderful family! Tommy is an 8-month-old Labrador mix that came to Blue Chip from a shelter in Puerto Rico in October. He was adopted and loved by a man who can no longer care for him. Tommy has spent much of the past month in foster care. He is good with other dogs, especially if there’s a playmate in the crowd. He has learned to wait his turn and has not shown food or toy aggression. Tommy has a few rough edges to smooth out, but is intelligent and quick to learn. His foster family feels he would be good in a home with children because he is pure love.
Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge has been helping to rescue abandoned and abused dogs from Puerto Rico for several years. Many dogs are rescued from a place known as Dead Dog Beach. As the name states, this is a final resting place for dogs, and it certainly isn’t a peaceful death. No dog ever willingly chooses to come to Dead Dog Beach; they are dumped there. Changes are in the works in Puerto Rico, but until the day comes when this horrible place is no more, we hope you will spread the word about this amazing pup who surely deserves another chance.
Melody and Harmony
Melody and Harmony are 4-month-old sisters who are a bonded pair. They are super sweet and love people. If you’re on a quest for a solid example of a tight-knit, trusting feline friendship, look no further!
