The Dolphins might have missed out on the Super Bowl, but two local stars will be competing in the cutest game of the year: the Puppy Bowl.

  • Miami pups Payton and Thomas will be representing Team Fluff at this year's game.

These two little Air Buds have already been adopted, but Miami-Dade Animal Services hopes to raise awareness for the 750 pets still waiting for a forever home.

  • Adoption fees for pets over four months will be waived Sunday at the shelter's Puppy Bowl watch party. Fees for puppies will be $85 and $35 for kittens. (Adoptions include the first set of vaccines, microchips deworming and spay/neuter surgery.)

When: Sunday from 12pm–4pm at Pet Adoption and Protection Center, 3599 NW 79 Avenue, Doral.
