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.




Bear is a 5-year-old German shepherd mix that is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He loves to go for walks, runs, play fetch, “speak,” give paw, smile for the camera and, most importantly, cuddle.

This big boy with a big heart is house-trained and will be a good companion. He is a bit protective and could possibly be a good guard dog.

Bear is looking for a home of his own, where he is the only king of the house. And just due to his size, older children would be best.

Dana is only 9 weeks old and is up-to-date on her shots and testing.

She loves to cuddle, chase her little mirror ball toy, and take naps.
