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.


Koda, a handsome brindle pit bull mix, had a very rough start. At only 1 year old, he was thrown from a car near Nay Aug Park in Scranton and was thankfully rescued by the driver behind this car.

Brought to Blue Chip soon after, he is fearful of quick movements towards him. It is obvious he was disciplined in the worst way. Once he sees you mean him no harm, Koda warms up to you and looks for your approval and attention. He would do best with adults and older children.

Holly is a 6-month-old tabby cat who is spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations.

She is very sweet but also very shy. Holly would do best in a quiet home.

If you are interested in adopting this little lady, please note that she is living in a foster home, not on the Blue Chip campus, so call 570-333-5265 ahead of time to arrange a meet and greet.
