Everyone loves the Super Bowl. But the Super Bowl is particularly exciting when the football field is much, much smaller and the game is much, much shorter and all of the football players are puppies.
Get excited for the big game, and not featuring the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. I’m talking about Team Ruff or Team Fluff, who will be competing at the Puppy Bowl XIX at Geico Stadium.
The Puppy Bowl is an alternative to the big game aimed to bring awareness about animal adoption. It broadcasts the same day as the Super Bowl and is known for being a sweet, cute, and entertaining substitute to the game. During the Puppy Bowl, everyone wins, but especially the 122 adoptable pups from 67 animal shelters and rescues across the country.
