It’s game time.

As a proud sponsor of Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XIX, we DNA-tested all 112 of this year’s adoptable athletes. So you can know your favorite player’s full story.

Dog with football

Get ready for Puppy Bowl XIX

This year, the Puppy Bowl will feature more than 100 puppies from rescues across the nation—and we’ve DNA tested every single one of them. Why? Because we believe every player deserves to have their whole story told. Plus, after game day, their DNA report will provide the adoptable athlete’s future parents with a playbook on what kind of daily care will keep them healthy and happy. Tune into the game on Sunday, February 12 at 2 pm ET (11 am PT) on Animal Planet or discovery+ to see all the player’s DNA profiles.
