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.


Nikko and Duchess

Sadly, we now have to post two more elderly dogs, as their owner passed away.

Nikko is a 10-year-old chow mix. He is very sweet and loving. Nikko is hard of hearing and has a little trouble walking. Maybe you know a senior citizen who has the desire to nurture a four-legged companion? Or a young person who might be a sucker for a senior dog? Or a loving family who would like to teach their children compassion? Children who care for pets learn important values, such as responsibility, unconditional love, empathy, and compassion for all living things. Is anyone willing to provide a warm and loving home for the rest of his golden years?

Duchess is a 9-year-old female American Eskimo. She is an affectionate, loving dog, hardy and playful. Because of her high intelligence, she should be easy to train. The breed is typically wary of strangers, but after a proper introduction, they become instant friends. And maybe we shouldn’t have said elderly – perhaps middle age? The breed can live to be 15 or more!

Of course we would like to see them go together, but we will separate them if the right home is found.


Meet Blake!

He is an 8-week-old male. He is such a little love bug – very sweet and super friendly! If interested in giving this handsome boy a furever home, please contact us!
