Sundance Vacations Lends a Hand at Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge 

The Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge, located in Dallas, Pennsylvania received a helping hand from Sundance Vacations.  Employees of Sundance Vacations, including Rochell Zambotti, raised money for and volunteered at Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge this year. The experience really opened Rochell’s eyes a lot wider about the big issue of overpopulation of adoptable pets in these types of shelters. About 3.7 million animals are euthanized every year so the team at Sundance Vacations did their part and raisied over $1100 while also donating their time and some needed supplies.

This is just one of the many ways that Sundance Vacations has been giving back to the community.  Our employees often times find new charities and causes for us to support, which we are more than happy to do.  We love giving back and it has become a part of the culture here, this is why we donate both time and money to Blue Chip Farms almost every year.
