Move over, Super Bowl: 9 Philly-area rescue pups are headed to Puppy Bowl 2024

From Philly and the Pa. suburbs to South Jersey and Delaware, what would you like WHYY News to cover? Let us know!

Dreams of a back-to-back Super Bowl appearance for the Philadelphia Eagles are officially dead.

Enter: Puppy Bowl XX.

The 20th iteration of the original “call-to-adoption” TV event will feature 131 puppy players representing 73 shelters and rescue organizations from 36 states and territories.

Expect plenty of puppy penalties and ruffs and tumbles. The stakes won’t be high, but the players will be cute, and there will be no shortage of ear pulls, tail wags and puppy kisses.

Team Ruff looks to unseat the reigning Puppy Bowl champs, Team Fluff, after their razor-thin  87-83 win in 2023.

This Super Bowl Sunday, the Delaware Valley can put all of its eggs into the Puppy Bowl basket, with nine rescue dogs representing six animal rescues from the region.
