90 Adoptable Puppies Compete for Most Valuable Puppy (MVP) Title
City Dogs Rescue &City Kitties is pawsitively thrilled to announce we have a puppy player in this year’s PUPPY BOWL XIV.The cutest competition in sports history airs Sunday, February 4th at 3:00 pm ET/12:00 pm PT on Animal Planet.
Sally storms the GEICO gridiron and makes the cutest ear pulls and tail tugs as part of Team Fluff as they compete to win the CHEWY.COM Lombarky Trophy.
Sally is one of ten Plott hound mix puppies born to mom Tamara in rural West Virginia. Sally charms everyone she meets and is described by her foster mom as "good for the soul." She's sensitive, quiet, and (don't tell the others) the sweetest one in the bunch. Sally was adopted by Daniel and Charles and is now living a happy life in Dupont Circle. Sally, along with 90 adoptable puppies from 48 shelters and rescues across the country, go paw to paw and nose to nose for the 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.
About City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties
City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties (CDR&CK) was formed in September 2011 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization to rescue adoptable dogs in high-kill and overcrowded shelters where resources are severely limited. In October 2015, we expanded our successful rescue efforts to include cats and started the City Kitties program. CDR&CK enjoys being an active part of the community with regular adoption and fundraising events throughout the D.C. metro area. We rely on volunteers and private donations to operate. By finding permanent, loving homes for our cats and dogs we enrich the lives of people and their pets in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.Many of the cats and dogs we rescue are just days, sometimes hours, away from being euthanized due to lack of space at shelters. Sadly, we are often the animals’ only chance of survival. Our efforts have enabled a number of our partner shelters in rural North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia counties to significantly reduce euthanasia rates. CDR wants to find forever homes for the pets that we rescue, so we carefully screen adopters. We check personal, vet and landlord references and conduct home visits as part of our adoption process.
