Who doesn’t love watching adorable puppies play with one another? As February rolls around, most people are getting ready for Super Bowl Sunday. Don’t forget that with the Super Bowl comes the must-watch Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet! If you have never heard of the Puppy Bowl, it is an event that features different puppies from over 40 animal rescues, fearlessly and adorably competing to score some touchdowns. When we say “scoring touchdowns,” we really mean watching puppies give sloppy kisses, play with their favorite toys, and topple over each other. The show is even complete with sports commentary and, this year there will be a kitty half-time show. In the past years, events like the annual Puppy Bowl have led to over 3,000 adoptions from rescues all over the country. How amazing is that?
