3 Nevada pups make PUPPY BOWL XI team

Posted at 3:59 PM, Jan 12, 2016
Television’s original adoption extravaganza is back and furrier than ever as the world’s cutest sporting event returns to Animal Planet for PUPPY BOWL XII February 7 with two hours of fuzzy faces, sloppy kisses and puppy penalties.
 
Animal Planet worked with 44 different animal shelters and rescue organizations from across the U.S. to fill the rosters of #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff with adoptable players for this epic matchup.
 
3 of those pups came from Nevada's ASPCA.
 
The network also is partnering with the Pro Football Hall of Fame to introduce the Puppy Bowl Hall of Fame to honor legacy players throughout PUPPY BOWL and promote the adoption of older “veteran” animals in addition to puppies and kittens.
 
This year’s PEDIGREE® Starting Lineup boasts 49 puppies competing for the famed title of BISSELL® MVP (Most Valuable Puppy).
