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.





How can you resist this beautiful face?

Gracie is a basset hound mix around 5 years old who is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She was originally surrendered after being found abandoned in a hotel. She was quickly adopted but was given back a few months later.

Since then, she has been in an amazing foster home with one of Blue Chip’s dedicated volunteers, who has helped Gracie learn to trust again and taught her right from wrong. She is such a phenomenal dog and really deserves her own forever home.

Gracie has a great deal of endurance, so she is active and enjoys taking long walks. She likes other dogs and cats and would prefer to live with at least one other dog. She’s not a fan of kids and her owner needs to be willing to put in the time to get to know her.

This brown-eyed girl is strong-minded and independent, but she will also become your best friend. She bonds quickly and loves cuddling when the time is right.

Call Blue Chip, set up a meet and greet, take her for a walk, and fall in love!


This Dennis is not a menace. He is a 2-year-old orange and white tabby cat who is neutered and up-to-date on his shots.

This handsome guy enjoys fine cuisine and attests that tuna and ocean whitefish pâté are unbeatable. He enjoys cat tower climbing and listening to rock music, but his favorite activity is watching humans. He is also good with other cats.
