Put me in the game, coach! This pup’s just one of 35 putting their best paw forward to compete in our favorite sporting event, which airs Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on Animal Planet. Also getting in on the action: hedgehog cheerleaders, hamsters, birds and even kittens. (Think could learn a thing or two from the kitty halftime show?)
The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers may be all the talk of that other game happening Sunday, but there’s plenty of fur-ocious competitors hitting the field at the Puppy Bowl. All of the tailgaters are from animal rescues.
In between plays, pooped puppies – including this MVP-worthy beagle-schnauzer named Trinka, snuggled up in the arms of AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport director Amy Heinz – enjoy a much-deserved time out.
