The Chico Animal Shelter on Sunday hosted their first ever “Puppy Bowl.”
It was all part of a national effort to try and get people to adopt puppies in local animal shelters.
There were seven puppies available on Sunday for adoption.
They’re not sure what kind of dogs they are because the mother arrived at the shelter pregnant and gave birth under their care.
Hannah Booth works at the shelter and said these puppies are currently being fostered, but they really hope to find them a new home.
"Adopting rather than shopping is so important and you know if you can take a little guy home, that's just awesome. it's another space for another dog to get saved and then they're home to go into a good home, so it's really important for sure," Booth said.
If you'd like to adopt but couldn't make it to the event on Sunday, the shelter is located at 2579 Fair St. and is open seven days a week from noon to 6 p.m.
