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.



Isn’t she lovely? Auska is a 2-year-old Akita waiting for her forever home.

She is up-to-date on shots and very friendly with people, but she needs to be the only pet in the home.

Please fill out an application on if you’re interested in this pretty girl!


Maria is a 7-month-old spayed shorthair cat who is up-to-date on her shots.

She is friendly with humans and cats, but has not had contact with dogs.
