Most people might have gathered around the television on Sunday to watch the Super Bowl, but in Shueyville, Iowa, it was all about the ‘Puppy Bowl’. That is because the town is the home of not one, but two star players featured on the Animal Planet show.

Dozens gathered at Shuey’s Restaurant and Lounge to meet Suri, a Siberian Husky, and Cici, a German Sheppard Mix, to watch as puppies played in a small football field and tried to score touchdowns with toys, and to raise money for the shelter that took them in before they found their forever homes.

“I’m glad that we have the turnout that we have, but I’m surprised at how many people there are,” said Cici’s owner Lindsey Grubb, who was still a proud mama even though her pup didn’t actually get to play and was only listed as a reserve. “I like that it raises the awareness for shelters and rescue dogs.”

The guests, who brought their dogs to meet the local four legged celebrities, raised a total of $3200 for the Last Hope Animal Shelter to help other dogs like Suri and Cici who just had to find their perfect match so they could shine.
