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.



Rudy and Buddy

Rudy and Buddy are two older gentlemen looking for a home to spend the rest of their lives in.

Rudy the Labrador is about 9-10 years old. Buddy is 7-8-year-old English springer spaniel. These bonded boys recently lost their dad, who passed away, and have done nothing but cry and crave human attention since arriving at the shelter.

They are pure sweetness and love everybody. They get along with other dogs and would do best with no younger children due to never being around them.

Rudy and Buddy are very easy to handle and enjoy walks and snuggles. They’ve had a hard time adjusting to shelter life and just need a warm, loving home to settle in.

These wonderful dogs can be adopted separately, but Blue Chip is hoping to keep them together.

Come meet these good boys and fall in love!


Garfield, a.k.a. Garth, is 11 years young. This striped orange tabby cat is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations.

He is friendly, curious, and very social. He likes squeaky mice and rolling toys he can chase.

Garth is the sweetest guy – all he wants is a quiet home and a lap to sit on. He would be the perfect companion for someone looking for a best friend.

If you would like to adopt Garth, fill out an application at and call 570-333-5265 ahead of time to arrange a meet and greet.
