NEW YORK — Best in belly rubs, best in overbites: Those are just some of the categories they search for at the 2020 American Rescue Dog Show.

Former NFL Quarterback Rodney Peete partners with North Shore Animal League America for this furry event.

Hallmark Channel is providing a pop-up, surprise & delight experience for animal lovers on Feb. 13 at Times Square.

All of Hallmark’s pet-centric programs are part of the company’s evergreen Adoption Ever After initiative, which has saved more than 40,000 shelter pet lives since the launch of Kitten Bowl in 2014.

Peete, who is taking part in this year's event, dropped by the PIX11 Morning News with some four-legged friends to talk about the event.

The "2020 American Rescue Dog Show” returns to the Hallmark Channel on Sunday, Feb. 16 and Monday, Feb. 17.
