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.

Hound mix puppies

Psssst… Do you think we will find a home by next weekend? I mean, we are 8-week-old hound mix puppies that are as cute as can be. Who wouldn’t want us? And potty training is so much easier in the summer!

Newborn kitten

This poor baby was found lying in an elderly woman’s yard for hours with his mother nowhere to be seen. She said flies were landing on him; our fear was an open wound, but it wasn’t. His body temperature was cold, and his umbilical cord was still attached.

So here he is with our foster, MaryJo. She has him under a heat lamp to warm him up, and he just had a bottle. Prayers or well wishes are needed for this little guy!
