What is the Puppy Bowl?

Puppy Bowl is meant to celebrate puppies by showcasing shelters and rescues, including their employees, who dedicate their lives to helping these puppies find new homes.

As for the Puppy Bowl 2022, approximately 67 shelters and rescues from different states will present more than 100 adoptable puppies to hunt, fetch, guard, tail and sprint to the end zone.

These animal shelter puppies are pitted against each other in a Super Bowl twist. They are given soccer ball-shaped toys to carry to their end zones for touchdowns in a model arena. The purpose of these games is to promote the adoption of puppies.

The dogs compete in two teams to win a trophy. The names of the teams are Team Ruff and Team Fluff.
