For animal lovers, the biggest question come Super Bowl Sunday isn't whether you're a Patriots fan or an Eagles fan, it's whether you're rooting for Team Ruff or Team Fluff.

Yep, the Puppy Bowl is back yet again, and this year, there's a special twist: Animal Planet teamed up with dozens of animal shelters across the country to recruit puppies from areas that were devastated by 2017 natural disasters — places like Houston and Puerto Rico. "We've got special needs dogs, we've got dogs from areas that have been affected by natural disasters, so a really incredible roster this year," Puppy Bowl "referee" Dan Schachner told People. As with every year, all the dogs on the field will be up for adoption. This year's starting lineup is pretty cute. You can take a look here.
