Beaufort County shelter dogs to make TV debut in Puppy Bowl
Start preparing yourself now for the cuteness!
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.
