Check out this year’s puppy Bowl participants and all the information you will need to watch Team Ruff and Team Fluff fight to the finish.

For the last 15 years, Animal Planet has tag teamed with Geico to host the Puppy Bowl. Year after year Team Ruff and Team Fluff battle for the win in a miniaturized football game.

With rescued dogs running around attempting to make touchdowns, this bowl is sure to grab the attention of your hearts and offer some laughs.

Aside from entertainment, the Puppy Bowl’s purpose is to help find loving homes for these adorable dogs. They are all trained, vaccinated, and ready to join your family.

In the past 14 years, the Puppy Bowl has been responsible for a little over 500 animal adoptions. The best part about the Puppy Bowl is that they highlight all sorts of dogs.

For example, special needs dogs usually don’t get adopted, so they like to have a variety of dogs, to aid in the adoption process. This year there is a huge variety of dogs, and 93 dogs will be up for adoption.

Spoiler alert, there is an adorable pup Marisol, from Costa Rica. Marisol is coming from an animal sanctuary and is hoping to find her forever home.

Each dog comes from a different rescue group or shelter from across the country. If you are interested in adopting a Puppy Bowl contestant, reach out to the shelter, rescue group, or Animal Planet.

Animal Planet hasn’t forgotten about the older dogs. Last night, there was a Dog Bowl which featured older, senior dogs that have trouble finding homes because of their age and special needs. These dogs are also available for adoption.

The fun doesn’t there. If dogs aren’t your thing, there is a halftime show that features kittens. I watched a sneak peek and although the cute fuzzy kittens were napping before their big performance, I can’t wait to see what these kittens have in store.
