"Tail"-gating has never looked cuter! Great American Family brings back its popular Great American Rescue Bowl for 2024! Teaming up with North Shore Animal League America, the world's largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization, Great American Family will bring viewers a pet-filled alternative to the Super Bowl.
Formerly known as The Kitten Bowl and previously airing on Hallmark Channel, Great American Family snapped up the purr-fect program when Hallmark dropped the annual show during a content realignment. The network aired its first ever Rescue Bowl in 2023 and viewers can't wait to see what's in store for 2024.
“Adoption gives beautiful and deserving animals a second chance at life. To see love and gratitude reflected from an adopted pet who has had a heartbreaking start or experience creates one of the most wonderful bonds that life has to offer,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Great American Media. “Our company is proud to partner with North Shore Animal League America, pioneers of the no-kill movement and architect of the happy ending for more than a million deserving shelter pets for 80 years.”
