These puppies are wearing costumes by the talented creators at Henchmen Studios, and viewers will no doubt want to take the puppies home with them. Here’s the best news of all: You actually can. All of the dogs featured on the stream will be adoptable.
The Puppy Rumble is supported by partners who will help keep the message of adopting over shopping live long after the festivities are finished and the puppies are all tuckered out:
The stream will also be full of advice to help people at home support puppies just like the one on the stream, including suggestions like sponsoring a pet or donating to one of the above partners (or a local shelter!)
As Tracer says, the world could always use more heroes. The Overwatch Puppy Rumble offers not just an adorable show, but a chance for viewers at home to be a hero and support ethical puppy adoptions.
According to Blizzard’s announcement video, the festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. EST on Feb. 19. The event will be shown on Blizzard’s official Twitch channel.
Here’s a sneak peek of what the Puppy Rumble will have to offer.
