Animal Planet airs the Puppy Bowl every year, as a way to bring attention to shelter animals and the need for people to adopt pets, rather than buy them.

Meep the Bird, a rescue African Gray Parrot, will be live tweeting updates and highlights during the game - with the help from a human of course.

Team Ruff and Team Fluff will face off at Puppy Bowl time, 3:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 4, making for a nice pre-Super Bowl LII taste of lower-stakes competition before the big game gets underway.

How do I watch the Puppy Bowl?

For feline fans there's the "Kitty Half Time Show" which will feature music from Super Bowl Halftime performer Justin Timberlake.

This year, Animal Planet is featuring pups rescued from areas that were devastated by natural disasters last year in Houston, Puerto Rico, Florida, and Mexico.

At 10 a.m. Sunday, your dog can be in the local Puppy Bowl, or watch the national one that afternoon.

Starting at 2 PM ET, Puppy Bowl will have their annual pregame show so everyone can get in all their "tail-gaiting" time!

Who is ready for the big game?

This is the first year Animal Planet is also hosting a "Dog Bowl" to advocate for the adoption of older dogs that may be a better fit for some households. For the seventh year in a row, America's favorite "Rufferee", Dan Schachner, returned to call the puppy penalties, furry fumbles and terrier touchdowns. "You come in and everyone is going to know your dog's name", says Cara Fowler with Bark Bar. Myself, I foster dogs, and I find that older dogs are easier. "We want the love and the thoughtfulness towards these pets that need our help to extend all year long".
