Attention sports fans: The single greatest athletic competition of the year is just a few days away! Get your snacks ready and invite all your friends over this Sunday at 3:00 PM—it’s time for Puppy Bowl IX on Animal Planet!
Here are some of the reasons we’ll be tuning into the Puppy Bowl this Sunday:
1. All of the puppy players are shelter pets!
2. The puppies are much cuter than those other, two-legged athletes.
3. There will be kittens, too!
Are you more of a cat person than a dog person? You’re in luck! Unbelievably cute kittens will be featured in the Kitty Halftime Show! Check out this live cam of the kittens in their dressing room as they prepare for their debut at Sunday’s big event. You might even be inspired to check out our ASPCA adoptable cats!
4. It’s more fun to watch actual pigs on the field instead of “the old pigskin.”
Oink! We hear there might even be some friendly farm animals on the turf this Sunday.
5. Subaru, one of our besties, is helping to sponsor this fur-filled athletic showdown.
Don’t forget to check out Subaru’s new “Dog Tested. Dog Approved.” commercials, which premiere during the event, as well as Subaru’s new interactive Facebook app that lets users create custom drivers’ licenses for their dogs.
In the meantime, check out the Puppy Bowl participants hanging out in their locker room in this live puppy cam!
