Lehigh Valley area shelter animals chosen for Puppy Bowl

Original airdate: 1/24/2018 | Some Easton-area shelter pets will get their big break on Super Bowl weekend.

A puppy and three kittens from The Center for Animal Health and Welfare in Williams Township were selected to participate in Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl.

“I was surprised to say the least. You don’t normally think these things happen to a local shelter…we were really excited,” said Kelly Bauer, the shelter’s Executive Director.

Bauer said the Puppy Bowl was taped in New York in October of last year.

Bauer said it was difficult keeping the good news under wraps but said she is thrilled for the publicity the Puppy Bowl appearances will bring to the shelter.

The Puppy Bowl airs on Animal Planet on Super Bowl Sunday.
