Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi has always had a soft spot for animals and has been helping out homeless dogs all season long through his foundation‘s partnership with KC Pet Project. But he’s kicked things up a notch to celebrate the team’s recent Super Bowl victory by paying the adoption fees for all the dogs currently available at the shelter!
And this had led to a lot of interest in these lovable, adoptable dogs looking for forever homes.
“We had a huge line of people at our locations this morning to adopt, which is just wonderful! So far, many pets are going home and we’re so excited for them,” said Tori Fugate, Chief Communications Officer at KCPP.
Tori Fugate continued, “KC Pet Project cares for over 10,000 pets a year, so partnerships like this are so wonderful to help our pets find loving, forever homes. We’re thrilled and honored that Derrick Nnadi chose to do this to help us save lives in Kansas City. Our community is on cloud nine following last night’s win and this is such a heartwarming story to go along with this huge victory.”
What a wonderful gesture by this man to help these dogs in need in such a big way. We wish Derrick Nnadi nothing but the best going forward in life!
