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.





George is a 6-year-old pit bull terrier who is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He was regretfully surrendered by his owner as an alternative to being put down.

George is a very loving pooch who is wonderful with all people, but he prefers to be the only animal in the home. He loves to play in the park, catch his ball, go for walks and car rides, and he is the best snuggler! He is the perfect companion. He would truly thrive in an adult-only home with an owner who is committed to teaching him right from wrong through training.

George has so much love to give. When you walk past his kennel, he barks until you stop and say hello. Then he wiggles his little wiggle butt and paws at the door until you pet him. As soon as you start to pet him, he gives an unimaginable amount of kisses. When you take him out of his kennel, he is so grateful and all he wants to do is give you hugs. He is a phenomenal dog and so deserving of a warm home.


Melanie is a beautiful 1-year-old longhaired calico! She is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations.

She is a little shy, likes to sit in your lap, and loves to be brushed. Melanie would do best in a quiet home.
