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 for more information.





Aries is a 3-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, and house-trained. He is very intelligent, strong, active, and loyal. Aries is protective over his family; therefore, he would do best in a low traffic home. He does better with women due to his past. It will take him a few visits before he will fully trust a new person. He is a very strong dog who needs an owner that will show him who the boss is. Aries needs a very strong pack leader; if he knows he can get away with something, he will. Once he has bonded with you, he will never lose your trust. He is an extremely loyal boy, with lots of love to give. Aries is dog selective, and usually does better with female dogs. He is not good with small dogs, cats, or children. Aries is just a big protective lapdog searching for his furever home!


Blondie is a 6-year-old long-haired beauty! She is spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped, and litter-trained. She sadly was surrendered due to her owner passing away. She is an extremely affectionate girl, and is very loyal. She would do best as the only cat; she was never around them in her past home. Blondie also is not good with dogs and would do best in a home with older children. We can all tell that she is starting to get depressed being in the shelter environment. We would like to find her a new furever home ASAP. Blondie would be the perfect companion, so please consider adopting her!
