Animal Planet Scores Points for Pups

Written by PETA | February 7, 2011

Did you watch the big game yesterday? No, not the one with guys running around in yellow pants. I’m talking about Puppy Bowl VII, in which pups who are up for adoption at shelters and rescue groups battle it out on a minigridiron to score “puppy touchdowns” with a plush football. OK, so there may have been more sniffing than scoring going on at the Puppy Bowl, but no one can deny that these adoptable pups are all MVPs (most valuable puppies)!

Thanks, Animal Planet, for helping to get the word out that homeless animals are eager to be “drafted” into loving homes.

    I hate football and I’d much rather watch the Puppy Bowl. I am very glad that these pups were mostly mutts. I think mutts make the best pets. And Pedigree dog food, which I feed to my dog, advocates adoption. They even contribute money to pet adoption agencies. Puppy Bowl is the cutest show on TV!

    Never miss it! BEST football of all! :-)) Not a violent moment in it. And the kitty half-time show was icing on the cake. :-))

    As an ASPCA volunteer, The Puppy Bowl is an annual tradition for me. I watch it every year. It makes me smile.
