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.



Samantha is a 3-year-old English bulldog who has been spayed and is current on her vaccinations. She loves going for walks and watching TV.

She is very much a people’s dog, seeking out human attention and loving every bit she can get. Samantha is bullheaded and determined, though, and can be very persistent. She does not give up easily.

Samantha needs a lot of human companionship in order to keep her happy. She can be a bit dominating and needs an experienced pack leader who understands alpha canine behavior. She needs to understand her place in the human pack in order to be reliable with all people. She is combative with strange dogs and should be your one and only. Samantha does have behavior issues, so only experienced dog owners will be considered.

Have you owned bulldogs in the past? Are you familiar with their stubborn behavior? Then come meet Samantha! This bull needs a bulldog savvy owner. She is a ball of energy and attitude that wants someone who understands her. Come meet her and see if you’re the one!


Violet is only 10 weeks old and has semi-long hair.

She is so sweet and lovable. Just like a flower, she’ll grow up fast, so come meet her soon!

If you would like to adopt this cutie, please note that all kittens are kept in foster homes, not on the Blue Chip campus, so call 570-333-5265 ahead of time to arrange a meet and greet.
