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.



Please say hello to Trixie, the newest guest at Blue Chip Farm. Trixie is a 7-year-young Chihuahua who is currently in foster care.

Trixie needs a $2,000 surgery to fix her back right leg so she can experience how it is to run like a dog. She was born with a defect, or an injury caused her back leg to be unstable, so she is scheduled for surgery on March 17 to have it repaired. Blue Chip needs your help to help pay for her procedure. If you are able to contribute towards her surgery to help better her life, please visit our website and click donate.

Trixie will be available for adoption upon her recovery for $150. She is so sweet, only 4.8 pounds, and good with people and other dogs and cats.


Hello! My name is Grayson and here is my story.

I was abandoned and wandering the streets looking for food. One day, I stepped on something called a trap and hurt my leg really, really bad. I cried and cried for days, but no one heard me. Finally, someone found me and took me to the doctor. They did something called an x-ray (which didn’t hurt at all), and they said my leg wasn’t broken, but it was badly infected.

Then this nice lady named MaryJo came to get me. She is a volunteer at Blue Chip Farm, and I have been living at her house. She has been taking care of me and giving me medicine. Now I walk with a slight limp, but I am much better. I am so grateful to everyone who saved my life.

I like to give hugs and would really like to find a permanent home. MaryJo has her hands full with so many other cats she is fostering, plus she goes to the shelter every day. Please consider adopting me; I promise not to be any trouble!
