Special Commercial for Animal Welfare Group Airs Feb. 1 During Superbowl on Hallmark Channel
The Lucy Pet Foundation (LPF) is a truly fantastic and reputable animal welfare non-profit; their purpose is to end the euthanasia in shelters that’s due to pet overpopulation (which we all know is like, close to being public enemy #1 in terms of animal welfare issues in the US).
So it’s totally exciting news that they have a Super Bowl (okay a Kitten Bowl) commercial coming up on February 1 that has been well-received and raved about! The best Bowl commercial this season just may be on the carn-sarn Hallmark Channel!
*By the way, I’ve been assured by the brand that this commercial will change the way America looks at cats and dogs forever. Wow. That’s a hefty statement! So how the heck are they doing it?
Lucy Pet Foundation’s groundbreaking #DogsVsCats football game commercial airing on Super Bowl Sunday, will feature the most high-tech CGI (computer graphic imaging) ever done using animals, and is bound to be among the most discussed ads of the year! #CANTWAIT!

The founder of LPF, past president of Natural Balance Pet Foods, animal devotee Joey Herrick, has put over $1 million into The Lucy Pet Foundation, and oh by the way, he will never draw a single penny in salary from it. How’s that for love and dedication…?
Apparently for Mr. Herrick, it’s about more… It’s about doing the right thing. And it’s about the animals! Herrick (et. al. at the company) hoped to draw attention to the fact that 80,000 pets are euthanized each week in shelters across the US, simply due to overpopulation, overcrowding, etc. Another wonderful thing about The Lucy Foundation?
ALL THE ANIMALS IN THE VIDEO ARE RESCUES! OMG, right!?
And aside from that amazing display of attractive humanitarianism, I’d like to again point out to my lovely readers the awesome #DogsVsCats football game commercial. YES – there will be cats with uniforms on people. And for the theme? Well The Lucy Foundation just wants you to let them know whether you are #TeamCat or #TeamDog? So go take some pics and send over your best selfies, portraits, action shots, and mug shots (not literal– please don’t get your dog arrested, BOL).
One last little tidbit (tidbone…?) of coolness to tell ya’. The director of #TheLucyBowl commercial is Sam Nicholson, one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed visual effects wizards, known best for Heroes, 24, The Walking Dead and Star Trek I! Wow! Now I really can’t wait to see this spot!
So I’m pretty sure I know what I’ll be doing on Superbowl Sunday besides not watching football. I will be hooting and howling over some seriously funny kitty and doggie football action at the Kitten Bowl on the Hallmark Channel; be sure you’re on the lookout for this kooky commercial you guys – you won’t want to miss it. And also, don’t forget to check out the teaser video here.
The Kitten Bowl airs at 12/1 Central on Superbowl Sunday on your local Hallmark Channel.
