NEW YORK — While football fans are counting down the days to the Super Bowl animal lovers are counting down to the 19th annual Puppy Bowl.

The Puppy Bowl is an event meant to help dogs get adopted. It features over 100 puppies from over 65 animal shelters across the world.

Pups are divided into two teams just like the football pros; team Ruff versus team Fluff.

If you’re looking for a team and player to root for, Kayden plays for Team Ruff. He's already found his forever home with a family in Columbia, Maryland.

The Maryland puppies were featured in last year's event.

The Puppy Bowl airs this Sunday at 2 p.m. on Animal Planet.
