The gentle sports competition on TV – and the original TV adoption event – is almost over.

On Sunday, February 7, the Puppy Bowl returns for its 17th iteration.

Before the Kansas City Chiefs compete for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Super Bowl LV, Team Ruff and Team Fluff will go to clutch in their bid to win the Chewy Cup “Lombarky”.

Ruff, who lost their game last year, are looking to reclaim their title.

Featuring 22 shelters and rescue organizations from across the Northeast, the event features 70 adoptable puppy players.

Six of those players hail from animal rescue organizations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including the Providence Animal Center in Delaware County, Match Dog Rescue in Burlington County, and the Animal Health and Welfare Center in Northampton County.
