Have you ever watched a football game without rough-housing and fights? Well, if you tune into the Puppy Bowl instead of the Super Bowl, the only kind of rough-housing you’ll get is listening to adorable little puppies barking at each other. The annual Puppy Bowl first aired on February 6, 2005, on Animal Channel. Shown each year on Super Bowl Sunday, the Puppy Bowl consists of multiple rescue puppies up for adoption. Each year, The Puppy Bowl is held in a small stadium full of toys. This stadium is a mini model of the actual football stadium where the Super Bowl is held. During the games, you will hear a great deal of hilarious commentary and see adorable little puppies playing. Also, each year upon watching the puppy bowl, there is a half time show of rescue cats who are also up for adoption. There are also live MVP polls and a direct link to adoption for the featured puppies. This year there were a total of 63 puppies in the competition and all of them were sent to a new home! The Puppy Bowl is awesome because it is not just for people’s own amusement, but to show people the healthy, adorable, puppies that are up for adoption who are really in need of a new home. The Puppy Bowl is both an adorable representation of the Super Bowl and a great way to find homes for puppies and kittens in need.
