Puppy Bowl XIV

IT’S PUPPY POWER!

THE NEVADA SPCA WILL BE REPRESENTED IN ANIMAL PLANET’S PUPPY BOWL XIV AIRING SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 4TH

90 Adoptable Puppies Compete for Most Valuable Puppy (MVP) Title

The Nevada SPCA is pawsitively thrilled to announce we have 2 puppy players in this year’s PUPPY BOWL XIV. The cutest competition in sports history airs Sunday, February 4th at 3:00pm ET/12:00pm PT on Animal Planet.

Rufus & Kassi storm the GEICO gridiron and make the cutest ear pulls and tail tugs as part of Team Ruff (Kassi) & Fluff (Rufus) as they compete to win the CHEWY.COM Lombarky Trophy.

Rufus-was surrendered with his 3 siblings without a mother to care for them. Rufus was the runt of the liter and immediately went into a foster home that helped him get big and strong and groom his personality into the superstar that he is!

Kassi-is a little girl with a big personality! Abandoned in the front lobby of the shelter this teeny tiny little girl won’t let that keep her down on her big day!

Both amazing little puppies have found their forever homes!

Rufus & Kassi, along with 90 adoptable puppies from 48 shelters and rescues across the country, go paw to paw and nose to nose in the ultimate match up between “Team Ruff” vs. “Team Fluff.”

For the last 13 years, Animal Planet’s PUPPY BOWL has owned the world’s cutest sporting event on television. Every Super Bowl Sunday, two teams of the fluffiest and cuddliest line barkers and wide retrievers take to the gridiron for a playful game of terrier touchdown, puppy penalties and furry fumbles. Representing rescues and shelters from across the country, these adoptable four-legged players that make up #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff are serious when it comes to winning the Most Valuable Puppy title and more importantly…their furever homes.
