The game will stream on Animal Planet and will also stream on Discovery+ this year. The fun starts at 2 p.m. and lasts for three hours, giving you plenty of time to grab some snacks before the game starts.

These dogs, playing for Team Ruff and Team Fluff, are disciplined and ready to put on a great show for their teams, so we won’t see any flags, but we’re sure to see some commotion.

The game is famous for the smiles it puts on people’s faces, but it also serves as a coverall for the pooches and kittens that perform in the halftime show. They are all looking for their forever home, and they always get it. In the previous 16 bowls, the adoption rate was 100% for all participants.

Pennsylvania will be well represented with hounds and rescues, and we’re going to introduce them to you now so you know which heroes from your hometown you’ll want to shoot for.

Center for Animal Health and Welfare

The first group representing Pennsylvania is the center for animal health and welfare, based in Easton. They have a pair of puppies, Patrick and Ray, who will be looking for their forever home while partaking in the big game.

Another rescue with pets in the big game is Providence Animal Center, who will be represented by Hope.
