Super Bowl Winner Celebrates By Paying Off Animal Shelter Adoption Fees
After the Kansas City Chiefs stormed back to win the Super Bowl, defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi celebrated by making "snow angels" in the confetti. Oh, and by helping animals in need.
KC Pet Project announced on Facebook that the star player paid off the adoption fees for every single adoptable dog at all of their locations.
"We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with Derrick and he couldn't have thought of a better ending," KC Pet Project wrote.
The foundation is involved in many charitable endeavors and is committed to helping communities in both Kansas City and Virginia Beach, where Nnadi grew up.
The foundation and KC Pet Project announced their partnership in September.
Nnadi, who has two dogs of his own, promised that with each Chiefs win he'd pay off the adoption fee for a dog in the shelter.
All of the dogs funded by Nnadi during the season have now found homes, the shelter told CBS News via email.
With the Chiefs going all the way to win the Super Bowl, Nnadi went all the way for the shelter and finished paying for all the remaining dogs' adoption fees.
"Thanks to his incredible support following this win, more than 100 available dogs in our care will have their adoption fees sponsored starting today," KC Pet Project told CBS News.
"We've had an average of 20 new dogs coming into our shelter every day recently, so this comes at a great time as our shelter is full of wonderful pets looking for homes.
