This year, Animal Planet is featuring a handful of rescue groups from places devastated by nature including Shaggy Dog Rescue.

Since swiping through Tinder during the big game on Sunday is highly likely anyway, for a super special one-time event the dating app has partnered with the ASPCA on a Super Bowl/Puppy Bowl campaign to help shelter animals.

"We have a 100 percent adoption rate". Dan Schachner returns to the field for his seventh year as the Puppy Bowl referee. Plus if you are looking for your next best friend, they will have more than 50 puppies available for adoption.

The Hallmark Channel is partnering with North Shore Animal League America and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation for Kitten Bowl V, which will feature another batch of fluffy "cat-letes" cavorting around.

Viewers themselves can adopt the very puppies they see on television by logging into the official Animal Planet website to contact their respective shelters.


Both Teddy and Tyler have been adopted but there are plenty of other dogs that still need good homes.

"Older dogs can often be a great fit too".

Look at all those unbelievable dogs, would you please? I have a busy household, young kids, and that's what we're trying to let people know. Rumors has it that he'll have some humans helping him, but just play along. Who wouldn't want to help them?

When the annual Puppy Bowl kicks off at 3 PM ET on Sunday afternoon, dog lovers will get their fill of watching some playful pups battle it out for the #2018 Puppy Bowl title. I am also an editor for Turning Point News and a foreign correspondent for Snip.And in case you were wondering, it's supposed to be pronounced "Wit-2".
