Animal Planet Scores Points for Pups

Published by PETA.

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.
