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.





Maddie is a pit bull mix that is around 2-3 years old. She gave birth to seven gorgeous puppies in early November. All of her puppies have been adopted – now it’s her turn! Maddie and her puppies came from a very unsafe environment. She has learned to trust people again and would love to find a family by the new year!

She needs someone to come and bond with her before adopting. Maddie absolutely loves those she has bonded with. She is very intelligent, strong, affectionate, playful, and loves attention. Maddie needs to go to a home with no other animals. She would be fine in a home with calmer children. She is a very sweet and polite girl with so much love to give!


Holly is a gorgeous 5-month-old long-haired Maine Coon mix. She is very sweet, but a little on the shy side. Once she warms up, she will absolutely love you! Holly is a very calm girl and has a very sweet personality. She loves to be pet and nap by your side. She is very affectionate and loves attention.

Holly would do best in a quiet home. She is OK with other cats, but doesn’t like dogs. Holly is currently in a foster home, not at the shelter.
