Rutherfordton, NC January 2020: — For the first time, Heart of the Foothills Animal Rescue of Rutherford County, and Day One Animal Rescue of McDowell County, are joining forces to bring the much-loved Puppy Bowl event to their communities. It all goes down on Saturday, February 1st from 12:00- 3:00 pm in the Gym of R-S Middle School located at 545 Charlotte Rd, Rutherfordton.

The Annual Puppy Bowl is a celebration of animal rescues, adorable puppies, and the communities who support them. HFAR and DOAR are putting on the event to raise funds and awareness for their respective animal rescues, and to find loving homes for the collective 70+ puppies in their care.
Not in a position to adopt? Come get your puppy snuggling fix and support a good cause at the same time.

Puppy Bowl starts at 12pm and will feature 30 puppies in “football gear”, battling it out on the “field” for the Championship. Tail-pulling and growling will lose them a point, whereas kisses and toy football-sharing will win them a point.
What team will come out on top- The Ruff’ton Rowdies or D1 Daredevils?

Concessions will be available for purchase, as well as Limited Edition Puppy Bowl 2020 event t-shirts. Local vendors will also be set up inside for your shopping pleasure. All proceeds from the event benefit the rescues and go right back into the lifesaving work being done in their communities.
