Ninety-one dogs from a Kansas City animal shelter are already in their new homes courtesy of Kansas City Chiefs Defensive lineman Derrick Nnadi.
After the Chiefs' 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at the Supper Bowl, Nnadi thought the best way to celebrate and be thankful was to pay the adoption fees for the dogs who were in the shelter as of Sunday for as long as it takes for those dogs to be adopted. Adoption fees at the Kansas City Pet Project normally run about $150.
The KC Pet Project said 20 dogs had been adopted through the program on Monday. Ten dogs are typically adopted on an average workday. Nnadi sponsored a program during the regular season in which he paid the adoption fee for one hard-to-adopt dog after each Chiefs victory. All of the dogs in that program found homes. Nnadi is the daddy of a rescue dog himself.
The lineman Nnadi was in on four tackles, one for a loss, in Super Bowl 54.
But this is a win-win for everyone...the people and the dogs!
