Let the tailgating begin! The most anticipated – and cutest – sporting event of the season is about to get even bigger. PUPPY BOWL returns to Animal Planet’s GEICO Stadium to celebrate a very special 10th anniversary in a championship battle for cuteness and barking rights. And this year, all six airings of PUPPY BOWL X are sure to surprise viewers at the end of the game as fans vote in real time for which puppy will take home the coveted title of BISSELL® MVP (Most Valuable Puppy). Complete with brand-new features including interactive fan voting for this year’s MVP and an online Fantasy Puppy League sponsored by AT&T available at AnimalPlanet.com/PuppyBowl, super fans also are treated to live scoring updates and countdowns of the most memorable moments and players from the history of PUPPY BOWL. Curious to know what former PUPPY BOWL veterans are up to these days? PUPPY BOWL X follows up with some of the most famous faces in the history of puppy sports. Amping up this year’s BISSELL® KITTY HALF-TIME SHOW are the musical stylings of Internet sensation Keyboard Cat. Fellow feline celebrity and VIP super fan Lil BUB shows her support by checking in throughout the game while a parade of penguins waddle and cheer for its favorite players from the sidelines. Furry first responders representing police dogs across the New York region will participate in the National Anthem ceremony, and a group of rowdy canines watches the action from an all-new doggie tailgate party. Viewers won’t miss a second of the action with PUPPY BOWL favorites such as the water bowl cam, slow motion “Too Cute” cam, Kiss Cam sponsored by SUBARU, and an aerial view of the field provided by the TWIZZLERS® blimp and its hamster pilots, capturing every furry fumble, touchdown and penalty. Follow sideline reporter @MeepTheBird on game-day for live updates from inside the stadium.

All of the puppies and kittens featured in PUPPY BOWL X come from shelters and rescue groups across the United States and even Puerto Rico. This year’s team includes players from Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA (California), Florida Little Dog Rescue, Colorado Animal Welfare League, Last Hope Animal Rescue (Iowa) and Scottsville Veterinary Hospital and Adoptions (New York). Animal Care & Control of NYC provided kittens for the BISSELL® KITTY HALF-TIME SHOW.
