Puppy Bowl This Sunday

Are you ready for football? On Super Bowl Sunday there will be over 100 puppies playing for their furever homes in Puppy Bowl XIX. Animal Planet uses this exciting day in sports to showcase animals in need of adoption. The Puppy Bowl features adoptable dogs from 67 shelters kicking off in model stadiums. “Team Ruff” will be playing against “Team Fluff” to showcase their skills with toys and teammates. This year, the teams include 11 special needs pups all competing for the "Lombarky" trophy. A cast of cute, adoptable kitties will be featured in the halftime show.

Adopting a shelter pet is a compassionate choice that not only transforms the life of a deserving animal but also brings numerous benefits to the adopter. Shelter pets, often overlooked or abandoned, possess an immense capacity for love and gratitude. By choosing to adopt, individuals not only provide a second chance to a furry friend in need but also contribute to the noble cause of reducing pet overpopulation. Shelter animals come in various shapes, sizes, and personalities, offering a diverse range of companionship options to match any lifestyle. Moreover, many shelter pets are already vaccinated, spayed, or neutered, making the adoption process more convenient and cost-effective. The joy of welcoming a shelter pet into a loving home is immeasurable, creating a bond that is deeply rewarding and reminding us that every animal deserves a chance to experience the warmth of a caring family.

The big game starts Sunday, February 12th @ 11 a.m. Pacific time on Animal Planet, Discovery and streaming on HBO Max. Throughout the game, Animal Planet will highlight dogs and puppies currently available for adoption through non-profit rescue organizations.
