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.



Meet Maddox. His dad is overseas serving our country, and Maddox is looking for his next family to serve.

He is a big guy who doesn’t know it. All he wants is someone who will play ball, snuggle him, and let him give kisses. He knows down and sit and would love someone who could take him on long walks or even to run errands. Maddox is shy in his kennel, but as you can see, he has a lot of love to give once you get him out.

He is a 2-year-old Labrador/terrier mix, neutered, and up to date on shots. He has lived with young kids and cats, and he seems to be good with other dogs. Please don’t overlook him because he is big; he has a heart of gold and would make a great addition to any family.

Come on – it’s your patriotic duty to at least share!


Ginger is a very regal-looking 9-week-old kitten and a total sweetheart. She loves to snuggle and play.

Wouldn’t you like to be her servant?!
