This year’s dogs will be comprised of 96 Puppies from 61 Shelters that will descend upon the Gridiron for the 16th annual game. Plus, returning fans will be happy to know that Dan Schachner will be making his return once again as referee. All the dogs will be split between either #TeamRuff or #TeamFluff, and will be playing to win the inaugural CHEWY “Lombarky” trophy at GEICO stadium.

In past years, every single animal that has participated has been adopted into loving families after the event.
