Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge has teamed up with NEPA Scene for Shelter Sunday, a weekly 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 for more information.




Bella is still searching for her furever home! She is a beautiful, strong, energetic four-year-old pit bull mix. She is spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped, house-trained, and knows basic commands. She is extremely loving, loyal, and goofily friendly! She would make a great companion for a household with children while remaining strong and vigilant enough to protect her loved ones. And as you can see in the pictures, she likes to play dress up! Bella does show sensitivity toward other dogs and would be best as the only pet.


Gracie is a three-month-old blue cream Persian. She is extremely sweet and very affectionate! She gets along with other cats, small dogs, and would do better with older children. She must go to an experienced owner! Persians have sweet and gentle personalities. They blend into most households once they feel secure in their new environment. Proper maintenance requires a daily run-through with a metal comb to eliminate the potential drawbacks of tangles and hairballs. Persians have hereditary health issues that can be a concern. These are a few of the reasons why we must find her an owner that is experienced with the breed.
