          Kitten Bowl has become synonymous with rescue pet adoption, which begins the Saturday before the program premieres, and continues throughout the weekend. “Kitten Bowl I” began with five rescue and adoption organizations holding adoption events in cities around the country. The number grew to 25 rescue partners in 2015, 50 in 2016, and 100 in 2017. During each year’s broadcast of “Kitten Bowl,” awareness for pet adoption rises dramatically. Hallmark Channel, with its partner North Shore Animal League America, will host 500 adoption parties in 2018.

          It’s not only kittens and cats that get adopted during the telecast of “Kitten Bowl.” The event is also responsible for the adoption of hundreds of puppies and dogs, 13 rabbits, and a pig. In all, “Kitten Bowl” has inspired the adoption of more than 13,000 animals – and the program is just getting started! Kitten Bowl, America Rescue Dog Show, Hero Dog Awards are all part of Hallmark’s Adoption Ever After program to promote shelter pet adoption until every last pet has a loving, forever home.   
 
          “The ‘Kitten Bowl’ franchise has grown tremendously over time, evolving from entertainment into America’s most beloved national rescue pet adoption event,” said Bill Abbott, President and CEO, Crown Media Family Networks. “The timing of ‘Kitten Bowl V’ is perfect to help raise awareness of all animals that need forever homes, especially those displaced by recent natural disasters. We have no doubt that this year’s event will further inspire viewers to visit a local shelter and adopt a loving pet.”
