14th Annual Puppy Bowl with the Austin Humane Society & Yard Bar presented by H-E-B Helping Here

Saturday, February 6, 2021


Are you ready for some football? The Austin Humane Society’s beloved Puppy Bowl is going virtual in 2021! The 14th annual event, presented by H-E-B Helping Here, will be held on Saturday, February 6.

This year, fans will be able to enjoy all of the fun from the comfort of their own homes, with opportunities to participate in virtual trivia and V.I.P. perks. The funds raised by Puppy Bowl will help AHS care for countless puppies in the coming year as we work to connect them with their forever families.

On February 6, you can follow the fun on our Facebook page, as we bring you live updates throughout the morning. In addition to the big game, our puppies will make their Super Bowl predictions and participate in the most adorable competition of the year – the MVP Races. New this year, we will be hosting two live Virtual Trivia events with special guests, awesome prizes, and Puppy Bowl themed questions. Join at 10:00 a.m. for the Pre-Game Trivia Brunch or 4:00 p.m. for our Trivia Tailgate (sign up for trivia here, or purchase a V.I.P. ticket to receive entry). You’ll also have the opportunity to name the quarterbacks of each team! For just $5, you can submit your name suggestion. A panel of AHS judges will select the winner, and the names will be announced live during the game. Throughout the event, you’ll meet some of our available pups and learn more about how to adopt.

After you watch all the puppy action Saturday morning on our Facebook page, you can continue the fun at Yard Bar! This year, in lieu of a spectator event, Yard Bar will be hosting its Puppy Bowl Pawtraits on Saturday, February 6th from 12-4 p.m. They’ll be setting up a classic tailgate as the photo backdrop, and your pup is encouraged to wear their favorite team gear to complete the scene. Yard Bar will also be offering food and bar specials all day, so you can make it a real tailgate party! Photo sessions are available by reservation only and require a $35 donation per portrait, with proceeds benefitting AHS. Your donation ticket includes one digital photo plus freebies from New Belgium Brewing and Merrick Pet Care. There are a limited number of reservations available, so click here to claim yours today!

This year, our Tailgate Food Competition is curbside! In the weeks leading up to the event, participating restaurants and food trucks will offer selected “Puppy Bowl” menu items. With each purchase, our culinary partners will donate a percentage of sales back to AHS. After you try them all, you can vote for your favorite in our Facebook poll. The winner of the Top Tailgating Bite will be announced live during Puppy Bowl!
