SHELTER SUNDAY: Meet Juliette (Siberian husky) and Peanut (orange tabby kitten)
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.
Good morning! Did you know that Blue Chip is open today from noon until 5 p.m.? Did you also know that I am in search for my furever home?
Oh geez, where are my manners? Let me introduce myself! My name is Juliette! I was brought to this place called Blue Chip as a stray. The volunteers do not know much about my past, but I know a lot about it and would rather not talk about it. It took a few weeks for me to look and feel this good! The shelter believes I am a 5-7-year-old husky!
I have made some friends here, including some cats and dogs. I have also met a handful of children during my stay, and all I can say is that I love them! Some very nice volunteers bring me out to play during the day; I really love to run in the big fenced yard! Do you have one?
There have been a few families that have met with me, but none have taken me home. It seems like no one wants a deaf dog. Oh yeah, I forgot that part… Please do not look past me now that you know I am deaf! I do not even know what that means! Whatever it is does not bother me at all, I swear! I am currently trying to learn some sign language (sit and come here, so far).
I promise this does not mean I am a bad dog; I am just as fun-loving as any other! Please consider giving me a home! I will love you forever and ever! Stop by and see me today, or call 570-333-5265 to meet me tomorrow!
It’s a Christmas miracle! Well, sort of. Let us explain…
People who have the energy and thoughtfulness to foster orphaned kittens deserve a medal. Because of her great compassion, MaryJo did not fall short in the attention-giving department. But knowing how to interact with kittens was not intuitive. MaryJo learned her human-to-animal fostering skills from many years of experience, and she is always prepared to flex and bend in her learning experience. MaryJo said this little guy was a challenge, to say the least.
He was abandoned and was found when he was only a day or two old with no mamma or siblings. After weeks of sleepless nights bottle feeding him, his foster mom says Peanut is ready for a very special family to call his own! Peanut is extremely friendly and loves everyone and everything.
P.S. The reason for the Christmas decorations is that Peanut is attached to his human mom. He follows her around like a puppy, so where she is, he is! MaryJo was cleaning her closet and, of course, Little Peanut followed!
