NFL draft fever comes to Animal Planet with the ROAD TO PUPPY BOWL DRAFT ADOPTION EVENT at Philadelphia's Morris Animal Refuge on Wed. April 26 from 2-5 PM/ET. Animal Planet is teaming up with the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) and Morris Animal Refuge to help puppies and animals of all size, shape and breed find their forever homes.

Beginning at 3PM at Morris Animal Refuge, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ron Brooks, linebackers Mychal Kendricks and Najee Goode and running back Terrell Watson will join NFL hopeful Dion Dawkins (Temple University) to evaluate all the prospective draft puppy players to represent Team Ruff and Team Fluff for this event and help attendees make their picks from the lineup of adoptable animals. Fourteen lucky four-legged MVP's will hear their names called, get added to the draft board and learn their new home teams. Puppy Bowl enthusiasts can catch portions of the ROAD TO PUPPY BOWL DRAFT ADOPTION EVENT, live, on both the Animal Planet and Puppy Bowl Facebook pages.

Animal Planet will cover the adoption fees at Morris Animal Refuge for all animals during the Puppy Bowl draft event and will send adopting families home with an exclusive "Wag Bag," a gift bag of puppy goodies and products. An Animal Planet Puppy Bowl referee will also be on hand to pose for pictures with families and their draftee for the Animal Planet social media accounts, including Instagram (@animalplanet), Snapchat (animalplanettv) and Twitter (@animalplanet). In addition to live social media coverage on Animal Planet's Instagram and Puppy Bowl Facebook page, post-event video will be on rotation at www.animalplanet.com.

Going into its 14th year, Puppy Bowl has owned the world's cutest sporting television event, dominating as the #1 cable telecast on Super Bowl Sunday among viewers and key demos while outperformed programming on ABC, NBC, CBS and all of cable, behind only FOX and its Super Bowl coverage. Every Super Bowl Sunday, two teams of the fluffiest and cuddliest line barkers and wide retrievers take to the gridiron for a playful game of ear tugs, tackles and tumbles. Representing rescues from across the country, these adoptable four-legged players that make up #TeamRuff and #TeamFluff are serious when it comes to taking home the Lombarky trophy for the title of Most Valuable Puppy (MVP) title and more importantly... their furever homes.

About the NFL Players Association

The NFL Players Association is the union for professional football players in the National Football League. Established in 1956, the NFLPA has a long history of assuring proper recognition and representation of players' interests. The NFLPA has shown that it will do whatever is necessary to assure that the rights of players are protected - including ceasing to be a union, if necessary, as it did in 1989. In 1993, the NFLPA again was officially recognized as the union representing the players, and negotiated a landmark Collective Bargaining Agreement with the NFL. The current CBA will govern the sport through 2020. For additional details, please visit www.nflpa.com.
