Don't make any other plans for Sunday, Feb. 3. There is nothing more important than this.

One of the biggest sports months of the year is almost here, and you know what that means:

It’s time for the Puppy Bowl and the Kitten Bowl!

Cat people and dog people alike can come together to appreciate fur babies of all kinds — as well as the world record of most animal puns used in a single hour, probably — thanks to Animal Planet and the Hallmark channel’s super cute programming that’s meant to be an antidote to the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. And while cable still dominates when it comes to the big game, streaming is where it’s at for the pupperinos and kitty quarterbacks.

If you don’t have cable or even a TV, don’t worry — we dug around to find the streaming services that offer Animal Planet, Hallmark Channel, or both. Just sign up for a free trial, soak in the cuteness, and cancel before you’re charged. It’s the purrfect plan. 

(The human football game is on CBS at 6:30 pm EST/5:30 pm CT, so for those of you who want to multitask, we’ll let you know which streaming sites offer that as well.)

The time to start planning your viewing party is now: So send your Facebook invites, find the perfect buffalo chicken dip recipe for your Instant Pot, and get your pets in on the action with gear from Bark Box, Super Chewer, and meowbox. And if you’re curious about who will be competing this year, take a peek at these super adorable photos of the starting lineup.

How to watch the Puppy Bowl:

Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl is the OG pet bowl, celebrating its 19th birthday this year. It’ll air on Sunday, Feb. 3 starting at 3:00 pm EST/2:00 pm CT. After the pre-show tail-gate (pun intended), enjoy a rousing match between 36 shelter pups and a Kitty Halftime Show. (If you’re in the market to adopt, Animal Planet suggests Petfinder to help you find your new best friend.)

Here are the streaming services that offer Animal Planet so you can stream Puppy Bowl XV:

  • Hulu + Live TV — If you already have Hulu, this is a great time to test out their live TV option. After the seven-day free trial, a subscription goes for $39.99/month (which takes your non-live Hulu subscription into account). You’ll get access to over 50 channels including ABC, Cartoon Network, TLC, and CBS for the other football game.

  • Philo — An awesome budget pick, Philo offers a seven-day free trial (or a two-day free trial without even entering credit card info). After that, a subscription goes for $16/month with access to 44 channels including Comedy Central, Game Show Network, and Discovery.

  • DirecTV NOW — Get the most out of a free trial with DirecTV NOW. Aside from Animal Planet, the lowest tier will get you access to over 65 channels including FX, Food Network, and CBS for the human football game. After your seven-day trial, a subscription goes for $40/month.

  • Animal Planet Live — If you don’t trust yourself to remember to cancel a trial before you’re charged, you can stream the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet’s site for free — all you need is a TV or internet provider login like Comcast Xfinity or Optimum.

How to watch the Kitten Bowl:

Instagram’s favorite cat foster mom Beth Stern hosts Hallmark Channel’s sixth annual Kitten Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 2:00 pm EST/1:00 pm CT. The show will also spotlight a few Kitten Bowl adoption parties, which is fitting because all of the (c)athletes were provided by North Shore Animal League, the world’s largest no-kill shelter and adoption organization. (Go here to see all of Animal League’s cats in need of a forever home.) If you’re really feeling the feline content, the Cat Bowl premieres the night before at 10 pm EST/9 pm CT.

Here are the streaming services that offer Hallmark Channel to stream Kitten Bowl VI:

  • Sling TV — One of our favorite streaming services, Sling TV is a super customizable budget option that offers a seven-day free trial. Sling Orange or Sling Blue subscriptions both offer 30-ish channels for $25/month, and to get Hallmark Channel, just choose the $5 Lifestyle add-on.

  • Philo — This clutch option has Hallmark Channel as well as Animal Planet, so you can switch between the Puppy Bowl and Kitten Bowl if you want. After your seven-day free trial, a subscription is $16/month with access to 44 channels including Comedy Central, Game Show Network, and Discovery.

  • DirecTV NOW — Another option with both Animal Planet and Hallmark Channel for both bowls, DirecTV NOW has a robust channel selection. The “Live a Little” lowest tier will get you access to over 65 channels including FX, Food Network, and CBS for the human football game. After your seven-day trial, a subscription goes for $40/month.

  • FuboTV — For true fans of sports of all kinds, a FuboTV trial will get you access to over 100 channels including the Hallmark Channel, CBS for the human football game, plus tons of other sports channels like the Big Ten Network, Bein Sports, MSG, and more. Once your free week is up, a subscription is $44.99/month — so don’t forget to cancel this one if you’re really looking to stay on a budget.

  • Hallmark Channel Everywhere — If you don’t trust yourself to remember to cancel a trial before you’re charged, you can stream the Kitten Bowl on the Hallmark Channel site for free — all you need is a TV or internet provider login like Comcast Xfinity or Optimum.

How to watch that football game that shall not be named:

It’s clear that the puppies and kittens are the main events here, but Tom Brady and Jared Goff will also be hanging out or whatever, so if you’re looking for something to fill the time during commercials or while the fur babies are taking a break, then there’s also some actual football.

CBS is the official channel, and these options below can help you out:

  • CBS All-Access — Isn’t it lucky that the big game channel has its own streaming service? Catch the game live plus other CBS originals like Star Trek Discovery and The Big Bang Theory. After your free week, subscriptions start at $5.99/month.

  • FuboTV — The obvious one for sports fans, FuboTV offers CBS as well as 100 other niche sport channels like Big Ten Network, MSG, and more. Once your free week is up, a subscription is $44.99/month.

  • DirecTV NOW — For CBS plus a wider selection of non-sports channels, DirecTV NOW’s cheapest option offers 40 channels including FX, AMC, and Comedy Central. After your free week, a subscription is $40/month.

  • Hulu +Live TV — Already have Hulu? Upgrade your subscription to Hulu’s live TV service and steam Hulu originals plus live channels like CBS, FX, HGTV, and more. After your free week, a subscription is $39.99/month (including your non-live plan).

A Man Found Six Abandoned Hairless Puppies And No One Could Tell They’re Great Pyrenees

Here is another rescue storey, which at the same occasion shows the unbelievable knowledge of some people and the heroic pity of others.

On a cold December morning, a person stumble upon six crusty puppies in the lumbers of Alabama on his style to labour. The poverty-stricken characters were in panicking, life-threatening provision and were trying to keep warm by cuddling against one another. The puppies, who hardly was like bird-dogs with a bald-headed pink and chapped image, were obviously too young to stroll the forests without a baby, and were destined for the worst without immediate help and professional attention. The four-legged siblings were hastened to a nearby shelter in Sylacauga, Alabama and the staff were offended by the illusion of the puppies and the mistreatment they had gone through.

It’s hard to believe that this could actually be the rough is starting a heartwarming success narrative. But we are so glad it is thanks to the care of the silent heroes who lives among us!

“They were so smelly that the shelter personnel had to wear disguises in order to bathe them, ” Nicole Zaguroli with Second City Canine Rescue( SCCR ), told The Dodo. “They were in very bad precondition; they had scabies, they were malnourished and cold.”

The staff in a shelter is believed that the tiny puppies that weighed only 5 pounds were of a small multiply, but due to the frightful precondition they came in, it was impossible to identify their true descents. A first guess of the dogs’ make was cocker spaniel mixtures which, to everyone surprise, subsequently turned out to be far from what they actually are.

The malnourished puppies were brought to Auburn Veterinary College for extensive medical care and then put to two foster homes for further management. Nicole Zaguroli like to remind you that foster homes who were brave enough to care for terribly strong puppies were their angels. There was no miracle in these dog’s quick recuperation- proper nutrition, medicated bathrooms and attention was the key. The puppies began to gradually heal and thrive lily-white fluffy fur.

When the little ones were finally ready to be been put forward for adoption to find forever residences, the question about the spawn rose again, and this time their appearance indicated the issue is Great Pyrenees/ poodle mixtures. And only after the doggies started to promptly gain substantial heavines, one of the adopters did a Dna exam and discovered they are 100 -percent Great Pyrenees, known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dog.

Dogs of this spawn are impressive in sizing and strength and have excellent patrolling knowledge. They can grow up to around 30 inches at the shoulders and weigh over 100 pounds. Doesn’t sound like a poodle, right? It’s difficult to believe that these powerful and magnificent beasts were once vacated, small-minded and vulnerable. Luckily, each rescued puppy noted a affectionate forever dwelling thanks to astounding volunteers at Second City Canine Rescue.

Over the course of a couple months not only did the puppies’ identity change, but they became health, active and very happy the group of friends of their owners. One of the pups, Bear( formerly Barksy ), even has an Instagram account to share his daily adventures.

I Showed The Sad Tale Of My Two Cute Puppy Who I Sadly Won’t See Grow Up

/ by / Tags: , , , , , , ,

I have adopted 2 cute move puppies, my brother, and his girlfriend were co-parents as well, it was a huge responsibility, but we fallen in love with them completely.

But life is cruel, a disease took them away from us, and this is my happy fib, if you can’t be dealt with, please close the link. But before you do that, please read my frantic letter first.

Because of the lack of knowledge and fund, the three men who rescued the move dogs didn’t drawing them to the vet for vaccination which stimulated the whole jam-pack( 9 adult puppy and 6 puppies) to be infected with the Canine Distemper Virus( CDV)- it’s fatal. An adult puppy has a 60% chance to survive, but a young puppy has recently 10%.

They gave us two puppies without knowing they were infected. Even though, we soon discovered the evidences and returned them to the vet clinic … it was too late.

In Vietnam, we are lacking baby upkeep, animal shelter and malady self-control protocols, many sick move hounds are wandering wall street. We certainly hope to have better solutions for them, but right now Animal rescue is spontaneous and disorganized.

This comic is my devotion for my puppies.

Proof That Wreaking At Animal Hospitals, Shelters, And Rescues Is The Better Responsibility

I charity my job.

I mean, who wouldn’t? I get to write about puppies, kittens, stimulating storeys, trip destinations…you epithet it! But that doesn’t mean I don’t have serious job-envy of others.

No, I’m not talking about people who make millions or jaunt “the worlds” for a living( though that is up there )… instead, I am uber-jealous of those who work at animal infirmaries, shelters, and recoveries. While the work is tough, it is SO fruitful. And here’s the proof.

1. Even if someone is looking over your shoulder, it doesn’t detect overbearing.

2. And even if the waiting area is full, it’s absolutely adorable — not annoying.

3. Cases actually know how to show their appreciation.

4. Fierceness is part of the job.

5. You get to bring together eternally families.

6. Coworkers are super cute.

var OX_ads= OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push ( slot_id: “5 3725160 2_56eb9612012d6”, auid: “5 3725160 2” );

7. And they’re ever eager to take on new responsibilities.

8. Your patients never forget what you’ve done for them.

9. Oh right, and everyone is adorable.

10. Clearly a reason to wake up every morning.

11. When brand-new patients “re coming for you”, they’re a welcome handful.

12. But when they’re too much of a handful, you’ve get pockets!

var OX_ads= OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push ( slot_id: “5 3725160 4_56eb961201447”, auid: “5 3725160 4” );

13. You never know who might walk in the door.

14. Baby beavers? Yep.

15. “‘ello mate! “

16. Bath time is arguably the best part of the job.

17. Your patrons truly look up to you.

18. But even if you’re territory with an furious case, they’re still so. Darn. ADORABLE!

19. Off-site gratifies are really awesome.

20. When things are brake, incessant entertainment openings await.

21. Bottom line: Best. Job. Ever.

If I had a stomach for blood and surgery, I’d absolutely go to veterinarian academy. Alas, I can precisely look on with utter jealousy…you lucky demons!

He initially showed the figure of 1 million. After some tough negotiations via text letter, they eventually settled on 100,000 😛 TAGEND

The senior dance major at the High School for Performing and Visual Arts is already a third of the way toward getting her nightmare doggie companion, which she says will come from her cousin’s dog’s litter.

And if any of the celebrities she’s tweeted over the last few days end up backing her safarus, then she’s sure to murder the target in the very near future.

“I got about 100 the first night and I thought that was crazy, but I didn’t is well aware would go as far as it has run, ” she told The Huffington Post via email.

“I belief my daddy didn’t realize that this was even possible for me, ” she added, “but he is beginning to realize that he might owe me a puppy! “
