Two dogs that played in the NBC 5 Doggie Bowl last week are still awaiting adoption with Fort Worth Animal Services. All the other dogs who played in the game have found "furever" homes.
Dogs from the shelter raced last Friday and make a Super Bowl LII prediction on Facebook Live. Each team of puppies or adult dogs wore colors representing the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fort Worth Animal Services has a $10 adoption special until Super Bowl Sunday that includes a medical examination, microchipping, rabies vaccination, and spay/neuter services.
