Are you Ready for the LUCY BOWL?


  • This commercial will change the way America looks at cats and dogs forever.
  • Lucy Pet Foundation's groundbreaking #DogsVsCats football game commercial airing on Super Bowl Sunday, will feature the most high-tech CGI ever done using animals, and is bound to be among the most discussed ads of the year.
  • The Director of the commercial is Sam Nicholson, one of Hollywood's most acclaimed visual effects Wizards, known best for Heroes, 24, The Walking Dead and Star Trek IThe commercial will draw attention to the 80,000 pets euthanized each week in shelters across the US, due to overpopulation.
  • Take a look at the teaser Lucy Pet Foundations #DogsVsCats football game commercial--real dogs and real cats in a real football game.

    Pet's (including our favorite-- Gilligan at Wag's Ahoy) were entered in a contest to win $500 for their favorite animal rescue group with a  photo of their pet with a #TeamDog or #TeamCat sign (sort of like the "dog shaming' posts)  with winners getting not only prizes but a chance to be a CGI dog or cat on TV.

    The dogs and cats who win the contest were announced this last week on the Home Family Show on the Hallmark Channel .  Let's all go share the news about the upcoming ad and remember why we are doing it.  For the rescues like me who would have been euthanized were it not for the efforts of people who care.
