What time is the Puppy Bowl in 2020? The Puppy Bowl will “kick off” at 3 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 2, a little over three hours before Super Bowl 54. Pregame festivities begin an hour earlier with Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl Pre-Game Show.
If you don’t want to watch a full day of pre-game coverage, the best alternative — especially in these trying times — is the Puppy Bowl. The event gets going at 2 p.m. ET on Animal Planet, and if you want to watch a live stream, you can enjoy it on Discovery+.

Since the game’s 2005 origin, the network has maintained a 100 percent adoption rate for all dogs featured on the show. The 100 percent adoption rate also extends to the kittens, who usually take the spotlight during the Arm & Hammer Slide Cat Litter Kitty Halftime Show.
Of course, even if the pup that catches your eye on game day is already adopted, you can still pursue your dreams of adopting a pet — whether it’s from one of the 22 shelters participating in the Puppy Bowl or a shelter close to you.
