Our Calendar of Events

Puppy Bowl

​​What is the Puppy Bowl you might ask. Well every year Animal Planet host a live Puppy Bowl the same day as the Big Game and advertises those rescues that are registered to participate i some way on their website. This year Hands to Paws Rescue and Brass Knuckle Pin Ups Rescue will be battling out to see who is top dog for this years Puppy Bowl. We will be participating by having our dogs participate in a player photoshoot and post each picture with that players bio through Feb. 4 th in efforts to try to get them the attention they deserve and hopefully off the sidelines and onto a warm couch in time for the Puppy Bowl (and that other Big Game)? This years Puppy Bowl will be Hands to Paws Rescue (H2P) vs Brass Knuckle Pin Ups Rescue (BKPUR). ​Each adoption application taken from January 16th through February 4th will count as a filed goal ( 3 points) and every adoption will count as a touchdown. The rescue with the most points wins the 2018 Puppy Bowl, winner announced Feb.4th the same day as the Big Game. This is the 52nd Big Game so we are offering $52 discount on adoption fees during this promotion only! Do you want to get up close and personal with the players? Come join the fun at The Pre Game Tail Gate Party on Feb. 3rd from 5:30-8:30pm. There will also be grilled hotdogs, nachos and cheese, drinks and sweets for sale. All proceeds are split between the two rescues.
