‘Puppy Bowl’ tour comes to Austin

Wednesday, March 11, 2015 by Mark Richardson

The Animal Planet network and the Austin Animal Center are joining forces to sponsor a local free pet adoption event as part of the national “Road to Puppy Bowl” tour. The second annual Austin event will be from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, when Animal Planet will pay for all adoption fees for animals from the center. There will be photos and giveaways in addition to animal adoptions. Each February, Animal Planet hosts the Puppy Bowl to coincide with the NFL Super Bowl. Puppy Bowl has led to hundreds of adoptions over the past 11 years and is a key leader in Animal Planet’s ongoing mission to highlight the importance of animal adoption and responsible pet ownership. Those interested in adopting Saturday can register to be eligible for the waived adoption fees. The event will be at the Austin Animal Center, 7201 Levander Loop.
