The concept of the Puppy Bowl appeared for the first time seven years back. According to sources, Andrew Schechter, an Animal Planet producer and a Puppy Bowl veteran who will also act as the referee of the match has divulged that the channel has acquired the puppies from over 30 animal shelters and rescue centers. He also added that one major motive behind the whole game concept was to encourage audience about adoption of the animals who badly need one.
The most interesting part of the Puppy Bowl is that there will be chickens who will be acting in the roles of cheerleaders, No doubt audience will have a fun-filled weekend as they tune in for the game.
