The Baltimore Ravens may not be in Las Vegas vying for a Super Bowl ring this year, but D.C. area fans of another big game have a lot to look forward.

This year, Animal Planet will host 131 pup-ticipants from 73 shelters in 36 states — including shelters in Maryland and Virginia — for a fur-filled Sunday afternoon at Puppy Bowl XX.

Ahead of the championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs, you can catch quite a few local pups competing for yet another chance at barking rights. (And, of course, a chance to take home the coveted Lombarky Trophy.) Some dogs may even be getting hands-on experience running the show this year, according to a release from Animal Planet.

“Get ready to wag your tails, because this year the football field isn’t the only thing run by puppies! Lovable canines are leading the show’s production by taking over the control room, the studio floor, and even coaching Team Ruff and Team Fluff,” the organization said.

Until the show starts at 2 p.m., you can enjoy photos of local pups in this year’s lineup (and up for adoption) on teams Fluff and Ruff.
