About the Kitten Bowl
According to Hallmark, the Kitten Bowl is “a feline catstravaganza presented in association with North Shore Animal League America (the nation’s largest no-kill shelter and animal adoption organization) and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. Hosted by Beth Stern.”
Joining Beth Stern are commentators Jill Wagner, Brennan Elliott, Boomer Esiason, and Rashad Jennings.
Hallmark says about Beth Stern, the host: “TV personality, author and animal advocate Beth Stern returns as host for this year’s event from Hallmark Channel Stadium. Stern embodies the spirit of adoption in her everyday life, having fostered countless animals in need. Stern’s tireless year-round efforts to find homes for animals makes her a synergistic fit to lead the charge for Kitten Bowl VII.”
Here are some more adorable photos from the Kitten Bowl.
The Kitten Bowl features more than 100 rescued kittens, with four teams competing for the Feline Football Championship. The 2020 game marks 40,000 adoptions since the Kitten Bowl first premiered in 2014. Today, the Kitten Bowl partners with 500 shelters. This is part of Hallmark’s Adoption Ever After initiative. The 2020 teams were drafted by North Shore Animal League America and Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. North Shore is the nation’s largest no-kill shelter and animal adoption organization. This is a wonderful opportunity to consider adopting your own kitten if you don’t already have a loving pet.
