WATCH: Adorable rescue animals battle it out in annual ‘Puppy Bowl’

Whilst millions of people gathered around their TV screens to watch the Super Bowl yesterday, some furry friends also made their debut’s battling it out in the annual ‘Puppy Bowl.’

The Puppy Bowl is an annual television program on Animal Planet that features two teams of rescue pooches who are pitted against each other in a game of puppy “football.”

The game mimics the American football Super Bowl, only it uses adorable rescue puppies.

Team Ruff and Team Fluff battled it out with Team Ruff taking the victory 70-44.

Whilst it is fun to watch, the show isn’t just about fun and games with the event encouraging people to adopt shelter animals.

We sense a fierce rivalry between these two. #PuppyBowl ?: @kristaschlueter A photo posted by Vulture (@vulture) on
