The wait is over. At 3pm today, you’ll be able to tune in to the biggest event of the year: Puppy Bowl VIII.

Rescue pups from around the country will waddle around a miniature field to kick around footballs, playfully bite one another’s ears, and basically make your hearts melt for the duration of the show.

What are the rules? The ref for the game says, “As long as a chew toy is dragged into the end zone, that counts as puppy touch down.”

How about fouls? Some major offenses include, “illegal use of paws” and “premature watering of the lawn.”

The Puppy Bowl brings attention to the six to eight million companion animals that enter shelters every year. The little guys and gals featured on the show have a great chance of being adopted. And there are more where they came from down at your local humane society.

If puppies don’t get your inner fan pumped up, then make sure to watch for the kitten half-time show, or the piglet pep squad. While the piglets aren’t up for adoption, they are from Ross Mills Farm, a farm that sells them as companion piggies. Ross Mills also has a foster program for pigs who are waiting to be adopted into their forever homes.

Think it sounds like a soft sport? Tell that to the 9.2 million people who watched the too-much-to-handle cuteness last year.

Meet some of the players in our gallery below.
