They’re back! Puppies and kittens from U.S. shelters will once again be competing in Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl. Puppy Bowl X will feature puppies from the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, Florida Little Dog Rescue, Colorado Animal Welfare League, Iowa’s Last Hope Animal Rescue, and New York’s Scottsville Veterinary Hospital and Adoptions. The Kitty Half-Time Show participants are provided by Animal Care & Control of NYC.
 
This year’s 10th anniversary edition will also include celebrity cats “Keyboard Cat” and “Lil Bub” as well as cheerleading penguins and interactive MVP voting. And Puppy Bowl X, featuring 66 pups, will even have its own Puppy Fantasy League.
 
Referee Dan Schachner is back and so is sideline reporter Meep the Bird. Puppy Bowl X also brings back the water bowl cam, the slow motion Too Cute cam, and a blimp view (with hamster pilots).
 
Puppy Bowl X airs on Super Bowl Sunday, February 2, 2014 at 3pm ET/PT. Last year’s Puppy Bowl drew in 12.4 million viewers.

Fantasy Puppy League: Later this month at AnimalPlanet.com/PuppyBowl, the network will launch its first-ever fantasy draft, where fans can view profiles of 11 all-star players and create their team of fierce and fuzzy competitors in advance of the big game. Then on the big day, fantasy leaguers can keep track of how their athletic fur balls are doing with live stat updates on screen and a leaderboard online.
 
Penguin Cheerleaders: Every Puppy Bowl deserves its silly cheerleaders, and this year a parade of penguins will waddle and cheer from the sidelines.
 
Xtraordinary Kitty Half-Time Show: Super Bowl half-time has nothing on Puppy Bowl as Internet sensation Keyboard Cat lends a paw and performs his rock rendition of Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven.” Thirty kitten all stars, representing the pride of the feline world, pull out all the stops to put the fans on their feet with an epic domino topple and one little daredevil, which makes a grand entrance by parachuting onto the field.
 
Xtra Special Guests: Keyboard Cat isn’t the only celebrity fascinated by all the action. Animalist’s Lil Bub checks in throughout the game from her Chicago studio, and furry first responders representing police dogs across the New York region take to the field for the National Anthem.
 
Adoption Updates: Stay tuned until the end of the game to find out where your favorite pooches are now. Over the last nine seasons, hundreds of orphan puppies have appeared in Puppy Bowl and have all since found their fur-ever homes! Dog Years: Life After Puppy Bowl takes a look at some of those lucky pooches and their new adult lives. And in Pup Close and Personal, follow select players home for an inside look on their journey to the grand gridiron.
 
MVP Interactive Voting: Visit AnimalPlanet.com/PuppyBowlMVP on game day to vote for the top pups having the most impact on the field. At 3 PM (ET), the poll goes live, and viewers will directly affect a new ending of each broadcast by helping crown the MVP.
 
Top X Lists: Many pups have made their mark over the last decade of this animal cute fest. Enjoy new endearing highlights and action-packed plays every hour from Puppy Bowl‘s I-IX as we count down the best of the best and most memorable moments captured over the years in lists including Top 10 Puppies and Top 10 Goofiest Plays.
 
Instagram Your Photos: All those Puppy Bowl parties just got 10 times more fun! For the first time ever, viewers will submit their own photos (of themselves or their pets or both) via Instagram using #puppybowl all night long for a chance to see themselves and their best friends on TV in real time.
