Three Dog Star Rescue Alumni to Play in the 2023 Puppy Bowl

FEBRUARY 6, BLOOMFIELD, CT – Three young dogs adopted from Dog Star Rescue last fall will be playing in this year’s Animal Planet Puppy Bowl on February 12, starting at 2 p.m. ET.

Archie, Madden, and Maverick are all puppies who were brought up to Connecticut from a southern shelter through the volunteer efforts of Dog Star Rescue. They were vetted, vaccinated, neutered, and transported to Connecticut, where they were adopted by their forever families and began growing in their new homes where they could rest up and prepare for the big game.

“We feel so lucky to have three alumni chosen for the Puppy Bowl,” says Dan McCabe, President & Founder of Dog Star Rescue. “We know that our Dog Stars are truly special, and now the whole world will see why. It’s because of our generous donors and dedicated volunteers that we were able to bring these three to Connecticut, safe and healthy, and they could be involved in this exciting event.”

Dog Star Rescue will be hosting a Puppy Bowl viewing party from 1-4 p.m. at their headquarters at 12 Tobey Road in Bloomfield, CT. For $25 per family, ticket holders can enjoy a beer from Hooker Brewery, let their dogs socialize in the play yard, and meet the three football stars for a pawtograph. For more information, visit
