Tom Wood Subaru is proud to partner with the Humane Society of Indianapolis for the Second Annual Puppy Bowl! Subaru cars and SUVs are Dog Tested. Dog Approved, so what better way to return the love than sponsoring a fun event that will let these dogs shine?

We've got two teams of pups ready to rumble on our special custom-made Puppy Bowl field, and the best part is that they'll all be up for adoption at IndyHumane in the coming week! Making the event even more special is the fabulous kitty halftime show featuring the Red Hot Kitty Peppers (they've already been adopted, but IndyHumane has many available kittens), local improv favorites ComedySportz on commentary,  and IndyHumane's own Rooster the cockatiel belting out the pre-game National Anthem!

The Tom Wood Subaru / IndyHumane Puppy Bowl II will be shown on the Comcast Access Channel from January 30 through February 2, and after that will be available on Comcast On-Demand. We hope you enjoy the Second Annual Puppy Bowl, and check back frequently to see which participants get adopted!


 
 


 
Armani

Drummer Armani also returns for this special reunion performance at the "Puppy Bowl Halftime Show." It's great to see the band back together again! As a founding member of the group, Armani was inducted into the Kitty Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. He's also been a drummer for "Kitty Jam" and the "Catnip Flowers." Young kittens and seasoned band members like Armani are a lot more work than adult cats, so please be prepared to spend lots of time with him. Keep in mind he needs to get all that musical energy out with playtime... and cuddle sometimes, too.


 Meet
the
Red Hot Kitty Peppers

 
Manny

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Manny returns for this special reunion performance. He was formerly guitarist of the Red Hot Kitty Peppers until Squeaks took over. Now, Manny has launched an active solo career. His most recent albums have explored experimental rock and ambient music, which he says he suddenly felt a connection to following some play sessions with catnip toys. He claims these toys helped him reach his own personal musical nirvana.

 
Sprinkle

This band is ready to rock the "Puppy Bowl Halftime Show," and Sprinkle is ready to meow her heart out on lead vocals. With her super loud purr, she's a natural at leading the Red Hot Kitty Peppers. With her multiple vocal styles: loud meow, soft meow, mew, and purr; Sprinkle really is a natural and is able to cross genres easily. As the group has matured over the years, we've even seen Sprinkle do some kitty rapping, developed through ongoing coaching. A truly versatile kitten! She's sure to be a diva and want you to buy her lots of scratching posts, nail trimmers, and toys.


 
Squeaks

Guitarist Squeaks first worked as a sideman for the Red Hot Kitty Peppers before joining the band as guitarist. Some say he was just looking for some good friends to curl up with, and his musical devotion has been questioned at times, especially since he has been seen napping in sunny spots way more often than the rest of the band. But, his prowess and skills on the guitar can't be questioned!


 
Yulee

A drummer really does hold the band together, and Yulee has a superb sense of rhythm. He bops his kitty siblings on the head with his paw constantly to purr-fect his rhythm! Yulee has been part of the group the longest so this isn't his first time performing at a large event like this. In fact, he was instrumental in choosing the name of the group's 1989 album - "Mother's Milk." It's been rumored he missed his mother since he ended up at the local shelter quite young. He's definitely one to snuggle and has been known to look for cuddle buddies after the band's shows!
