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.



Check out Buddy since he has been in a foster home! You can tell from his before and after pictures how far he has come.

Buddy is still a little shy with humans, but he loves to play with his canine housemates. Buddy is very sweet and lovable, and we are sure he will bond with his new human in a very short period of time. Buddy is enthusiastic and affectionate; he would make a wonderful companion.


Tripod is a 3-year-old cat amputee. He was shot in the leg and unfortunately needed his limb removed. Tri’s adaptation to life on three legs has not been easy. At first, he became depressed and inactive; he gave up playing and even stopped purring. Tripod is adapting to his lifestyle but needs an understanding human who will adapt their home and attitude to his needs.

Living with a disabled cat can be challenging, but also very rewarding. Due to his physical limitations, a quiet, calm home without other pets or young children would probably be the best fit for him.
