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.



Jada is a 2 1/2-year-old Rottie/boxer mix. She is a great family pet and OK with small dogs.

Jada is available to foster or adopt, so call the shelter at 570-333-5265 to set up a meet-and-greet.


Hey, Ralphie boy! How many readers will recognize that famous salutation? (Just in case you don’t, it was from the 1950s sitcom “The Honeymooners.”) Time can’t erase how funny those skits were, but pet overpopulation is not a laughing matter.

Blue Chip Farm is a “no kill’ shelter, but we cannot possible take in every stray kitten. Every year, millions of cats and dogs are euthanized in our nation’s animal shelters because there are more pets than there are responsible homes for them. Luckily, this will not be Ralphie’s fate.

Both Ralphie and his brother Casper are 8 weeks old. They were abandoned, found living under someone’s deck, and both are healthy and ready for adoption.
