Puppies vie for MVP in fun game at shelter

Ready for some puppy defensive tactics and offensive moves? Watch out for the puppy huddle and puppy nibbles as Española Humane’s clinic lobby turns into a “football field” Saturday, Feb. 12, for the site of an “interactive” game. We’re not sure who will win MVP but we’re sure these players will win your hearts as they struggle to the end zone during our special event.

The shelter’s Puppy Bowl 2022 will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and features plenty of puppies, a half-time kitten show, snacks, drinks, and lots of fun. There also will be a chance to adopt a furry friend, said Shelter Manager Adam Bates.

“Why not kick off the Super Bowl weekend with a new best friend,” Bates said. “All puppies and kittens and other pets will be ready to go home, fully vaccinated, altered and we’re sure they will be your Most Valuable Pet.”

The event is free and will take place in the clinic lobby. Individually packaged Super Bowl snacks will be available. The shelter is located at 108 Hamm Parkway, Española, NM, 87532

To get a jump-start on an adoption, start the application process on the shelter’s website and create an online account. For more information and to see adoptable pets, visit www.espanolahumane.org.
