If you're anything like us here at Animal Planet, the days since Puppy Bowl XI have been absolutely ruff! We all have to wait until 2016 rolls around to see next year's puppy athletes romping around the gridiron, but there's fortunately one great reason for you to keep calm and smile on. Road to Puppy Bowl is on its way!
For a second year, Animal Planet is bringing the spirit of Puppy Bowl to animal rescue organizations around the country through Road to Puppy Bowl, a series of all-star adoption events meant to help families find their very own MVP (Most Valuable Pet) in a shelter in their community. First stop: the nation's capital, Washington, DC!
On March 1, Animal Planet will kick off the Road to Puppy Bowl tour at the Washington Animal Rescue League, the District of Columbia's oldest animal shelter and home to the adorable and adoptable stars of the APL!VE Kitten and Puppy Cams. Between noon and 4PM EST, Animal Planet will cover fifty percent of the adoption fees for animals adopted during the event. That's not just limited to puppies either. Whether you fall in love with a feline, a canine, a senior companion, or a playful, young tyke, half of the costs will be covered as long as you register for the event. To make things even sweeter, there will also be exciting chances for photo ops, free giveaways, and so much more.
While you're there, share your Road to Puppy Bowl experience with us. Post your photos to Instagram and tag them with #R2PB. We'll post our favorites at AnimalPlanet.com/PuppyBowl.
