Dogs from Pal­metto An­i­mal League’s shel­ter in Okatie will be fea­tured dur­ing An­i­mal Planet’s an­nual Puppy Bowl on Super Bowl Sun­day.

An­i­mal Planet crews filmed the pup­pies, rang­ing in age from 3 to 6 months, in De­cem­ber, ac­cord­ing to a post on Pea­cock Subaru Hil­ton Head’s Face­book page.

Amy Cam­panini, pres­i­dent of Pal­metto An­i­mal League, said film­ing took place at the adop­tion cen­ter, Old­field Plan­ta­tion, Pea­cock Subaru and Me- mo­rial Sta­dium in Sa­van­nah.

She said eight pup­pies and two adult dogs were part of the film­ing.

The footage will be part of the lead-in to the Puppy Bowl and will be in­cor­po­rated into com­mer­cials for Subaru dur­ing the 15th an­nual Puppy Bowl broad­cast, PAL said. “They in­ter­viewed PAL em­ploy­ees and in­ter­viewed adopters and got a bunch of sto­ries,” Cam­panini said. The auto deal­er­ship, lo­cated off U.S. 278 in Hardeeville, is plan­ning a tail­gat­ing Watch Party with food from One Hot Mama’s from 2:30 to 5 p.m. on Sun­day, Feb. 3.

The broad­cast be­gins at 3 p.m. on An­i­mal Planet.

Do­na­tions will be col­lected for PAL at the event.

PAL, which op­er­ates a no-kill shel­ter for about 200 dogs and cats, will have adopt­able dogs at the party, the deal­er­ship said.

All of the PAL pup­pies who were part of the film­ing have been adopted, said Cam­panini, who ex­pressed hope that the broad­cast would call at­ten­tion to the plight of dogs in shel­ters and to the work res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tions do.

Last year’s Puppy Bowl put dogs from dozens of shel­ters in front of more than 3 mil­lion view­ers.
