Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge teams up with NEPA Scene every week for Shelter Sunday, a post that features dogs, cats, 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.



Gracie is a young basset hound mix. She is a hearty eater, but because she isn’t very active in the house, she has gained weight and is somewhat overweight. In order to prevent back or leg problems, she must have regular exercise. She has a great deal of endurance, so she enjoys taking long walks.

Patience is definitely a virtue when it comes to training Gracie. Unless you can persuade her that it’s something she wants to do, she can be stubborn and difficult to train. But if you are up to the challenge and have or would like to have a daily exercise regimen, Gracie may just be the girl for you.


Meet Aurora! She is 1 year old and both sweet and shy.

She would do best in a quiet home as an only pet. If you’re interested in giving this beautiful girl a furever home, please contact Blue Chip at 570-333-5265!
