If you’re not really a football fan, here’s a cute alternative for you on Super Bowl Sunday.

The annual Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet will feature three puppies from Operation Paws for Homes in Baltimore for the second year in a row.

Lotte, Cream Puff and Samoa were three of the 1,200 dogs the organization adopted out last year.

More than 10 million viewers tuned into the 2015 Puppy Bowl, which also features a kitten half-time show. All of the puppies and kittens come from shelters and rescue groups.

Siblings Cream Puff and Samoa were adopted together and live in Frederick. Lotte, a formerly feral puppy who came from a rural Virginia shelter, now lives in White Marsh with her adoptive family.

Operation Paws for Homes will host a Puppy Bowl XII viewing party at Jailbreak Brewery in Laurel, which will be family- and dog-friendly.

The Puppy Bowl will air on Animal Planet 3-5 p.m. Feb. 7.
