Kicking off the event this year is Baltimore Raven's offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, who told "GMA" he took home his beloved six-year-old Pit Bull, Lola, from the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) in Baltimore, Md.
"I asked for the most un-adoptable pet pretty much," Stanley said.
"If you're thinking about getting a dog, definitely go to the shelter first," Stanley added. "I think rescue dogs are more appreciative."
Each day this week "GMA" will be live streaming with NFL players at rescue shelters across the nation -- and there's no shortage of cuteness with the roster of adoptable dogs.
Tune in for live streams all week on the GMA Facebook page from shelters and players across the country.
