It’s almost time for the 2020 Super Bowl – or for all non-sports-fans, the Puppy Bowl! Animal Planet’s 16th annual, adorable game starring adoptable pups happens on the same day as the Big Game - Sunday, February 2nd - at 3pm ET.

Animal Planet has a 100-percent track record of post-game adoptions… and they’re hoping to keep it that way. This year, 42 players (including 6 from shelters in MD and VA!) will go nose-to-nose on Team Ruff and Team Fluff, fetching, roughhousing and tug-of-war-ing their way to the top – check out the lineup HERE. You'll notice "Anise", an Austalian Cattle Dog/Lab Mix from Last Chance Animal Rescue in Waldorf, MD...and "Killjan", a Great Dane rescued by Green Dogs Unleashed in Troy, VA!

There will be a Kitty Half-Time show starring Jenni-Purr Lopez (like J-Lo) and Cat-ira (like Shakira), along with appearances the “Property Brothers.” What else can we expect? Plenty of slow-motion adorableness, a water bowl cam, and the fan-favorite puppy kiss cam.

AND...over on Hallmark Channel, you'll be able to enjoy all the action during this year's Kitten Bowl!
