A recent NFL game between The Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans featured a special audience watching. Hundreds of photos of animals that were up for adoption lined the stands.

The Titans matched up with mars Petcare for the Better Cities for Pets Adoption Weekend, to help bring awareness to pets that need homes. In 2020, Better Cities for Pets Adoption Weekend was held virtually, from Oct. 17-18 and featured pets from five shelters.

Mars Petcare covered the costs of adoption for the families, and also gave pet supplies and food for dogs in their new homes. 200 seats were filled with pet cutouts for fans to select.

“We’re proud to work with Mars Petcare to promote this year’s adoption weekend,” Gil Beverly, the Titans’ senior vice president and chief marketing and revenue officer, said in a statement. “We’re excited to lend our seats to these pets in need of a loving home and promote this important cause in a safe and healthy manner.”
