The puppies are ready for the big Puppy Bowl this Sunday.  The adoptable Puppy players for Team Ruff and Team Fluff were recruited from 44 different animal rescue organizations across the U.S. 

The annual match-up will air from 3 to 5 p.m. eastern on Animal Planet, with a pregame show at 2:30.  It will include a kitty half-time show and some chicken cheerleaders.  There will also be a Kitten Bowl on the Hallmark Channel at noon eastern.
