As animal lovers probably already know, the 2015 Puppy Bowl will take place tomorrow at 3pm on Animal Planet.  The annual show, which features rescue dogs from all over the country, has become an alternative for many to the Super Bowl.  The game offers many of the features that the other “big game” will have, including a starting lineup and an award for the MVP (in this case, Most Valuable Puppy).

All of the dogs picked to be part of the game are rescue dogs and are able to be adopted and brought to their forever homes.  Last year, all of the puppies had been adopted prior to the show’s airing.


Las Vegas’ contribution to the big game is 6-month old “Keno” a wire hair Terrier mix who was dropped off at the Nevada’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ shelter with his brother in a cardboard box.  NSPCA President Kathy Jung placed Keno and his brother in a temporary foster home but also sent in an application for Keno to appear in the Puppy Bowl.

The City of Las Vegas has really gotten behind their hometown hero, and this Wednesday, Mayor Carolyn Goodman dedicated a ceremonial fire hydrant to the cute Terrier as a send off for the game.  Celebrities like “Raiding the Rock Vault”s Paul Shortino  and the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Norm Clark were also on-hand to wish Keno well.
