There’s not only ONE big game today, 70 puppies from 22 different shelters are competing in Puppy Bowl XVII.
This year’s Puppy Bowl features dogs from nine states, like Marshall, a deaf Boston Terrier mix training to be a therapy dog for COVID nurses and Mona, a 10-year-old Toy Poodle mix from LA who takes reiki healing sessions.
There are five special needs players and four hearing impaired pups, including Jett, a double front amputee Labrador mix.
And all will be cheered on for the first time by puppy cheerleaders. You can meet all the players here.
And yes, there are kittens! Adoptable kittens will put on the the annual Kitty Halftime Show.
First Lady Jill Biden filmed a PSA to air during the game, featuring Champ and Major, believed to be the first shelter dog residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
