Kansas City Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi Collaboration With Animal Shelter Results In All Dogs Being Adopted

Last week, Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl and their defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi, celebrated by paying over 100 adoption fees at the KC Pet Project Animal Shelter.

It is now officially confirmed at EVERY dog that the KC Pet Project has been adopted! 

But there are still plenty more places to adopt from and new pups coming in all the time. 

KC Pet Project shared an image of the empty kennels that were once filled with pups, along with this heartwarming message:

"The best sight we love to see. Because of Derrick Nnadi's generous sponsorship, our Petco Adoption Center has no more dogs to adopt. Every kennel is empty tonight - how wonderful! We still have a few sponsored dogs at our Zona Rosa Adoption Center, Campus, and in foster homes, and you can see them all at www.kcpetproject.org, along with new adoptables. Yay for so many lives saved!"

Thank you, Derrick Nnadi and KC Pet Project for the awesome collaboration. And a heartfelt thank you to all those who adopted! 

You guys are the everyday heroes!

Glow-Ups: Abandoned Animals Tranformations Thanks To Love

Love is so powerful. 

These poor animals had been abandoned, neglected, and the moment someone stepped in to give them a second chance -- they absolutely flourished. It's the best kind of glow-up there is. 

If you have the chance to give an animal a second chance at life and love -- please take it. 

love transformation cats dogs animals shelter rescue seniors tlc adopt adopted happiness | 2 years ago today I walked into a PetSmart and met a cat named Sonny who no one would adopt because he was 13 years old, covered in fleas, underweight, and had a mouth full of rotten teeth that had to be removed.

Woman Discovers Her Lost Dog On Florida Brewery Beer Can

There's been a few brewery's lately that have started to put faces of adoptable dogs on them, to spread awareness and in hopes to place that pup in a forever home. 

A wonderful initiative that has reunited Monica Mathis, from Minnesota, and her lost dog of 3 years, Hazel!

Monica Mathis, first noticed her dogs picture on a beer can from Motorworks Brewing, in Manatee County.The dog on the beer can was called 'Day Day,' and she had been at the Shelter Manatee in Iowa. 

How she got to Iowa from Minnesota is still unknown. 

"I saw one of the dogs on there and I was like 'oh my gosh, that looks like my dog. I searched for her, I called shelters and couldn't find her at all and eventually I moved back to Minnesota," Mathis told ABC Action News

"She looked in the article and saw our name and she called us right away," said Hans Wohlgefahrt, with Manatee County Animal Services.

Upon checking Day Day, they discovered she did have a microchip with Monica's first name attached to it, but her last name has since changed and the information attached to the chip was outdated. Luckily, Mathis had the paperwork needed to prove that Day Day was in fact Hazel. 

The shelter said that even the likelihood of Day Day (Hazel) being one of the four chosen to appear on the can, was unlikely. 

"For her to be on that can was amazing, and for it to go viral and of course for her family to see it in Minnesota," said Pam Frensi with Shelter Manatee.

"The chance to be able to have her come home is amazing. I'm just so happy that I'm getting her back," said Mathis.

Manatee County Animal Shelter is now working on getting Hazel back to Minnesota, and to Mathis, sometime next week! 

We love a happy ending! So happy for Hazel and Monica Mathis!

However, there's more to it than that. As Twitter user @hannahschramm4 shares in this important and informative thread.
