And while these parties are certainly offering a Great Dane’s share of food and fun, they're also raising money and awareness to support homeless pets.
A raffle will also be held to
benefit two area animal shelters. Paws crossed that Camp Bow Wow’s Puppy Bowl
will have the same 100 percent adoption rate as its namesake!
According to Polkadog Bakery’s Facebook page, the bakery is a tribute to Pearl, a one-eyed stray dog found in San Jan, Puerto Rico. Pearl had a “funny habit of dancing her head from side to side whenever she stopped by to say hello.” That habit — and Pearl’s serious need for pampering — inspired the bakery owners to create a delicious gourmet treat bakery.
To celebrate Puppy Bowl, the Polkadog Bakery will host its own Puppy Bowl event the Saturday before the big day, according to Boston.com. The event will feature a makeshift field for canines to compete, along with snacks for dogs and beer for humans.
Speaking of beer, even bars are getting in on the Puppy Bowl tail-gating train.
Sanctuary Brewing Co. in Hendersonville, N.C. is holding its fourth annual pregame Puppy Bowl event. According to local news site mountain.com, last year’s event attracted so many Puppy Bowl fans, they had to turn people away. So this year, they’ll be hosting in a larger venue where they’ll also be holding a senior canine show.
“We’re really excited to give older dogs the chance to find a forever home, too,” Sanctuary co-owner Lisa McDonald says in the mountain.com article.
A bar called Sanctuary that’s helping find sanctuary for deserving senior dogs? That’s a touchdown in our playbook!
Donations to benefit Brother Wolf will also be collected, and an extensive menu of beer, wine, kombucha and locally made snacks will be available. Woof!
All the dogs participating in the event will be available for adoption, as will other MVPs — Most Valuable Puppers — from a local animal shelter.
You’ll get an always delightful dose of cuteness, see some amazing four-legged plays and even help an animal in need.
