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. He came home with me that night and it was the best decision i've ever made

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!

Kansas City Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi Covers Over 100 Adoption Fees

With great power comes great responsibility! 

And one man used that power in an amazing way this past Sunday! Derrick Nnadi, the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, has celebrated his Super Bowl win by covering adoption fees for more than 100 dogs at the KC Pet Project animal shelter in Kansas City, Missouri.

How amazing is that?! 

Adoption fees usually run about $150, per dog. And apparently, Nnadi had been paying off adoption fees all season long! Each time the Chiefs would win a game, he would pay another dog's adoption fee through the Derrick Nnadi Foundation.

The fee waiver will cover the cost of any dog that became available for adoption before February 2.

Why spend that money on adoption fees? Well, Nnadi told CNN that he wasn't allowed any pets growing up. During his senior year of college, he decided to get a dog named Rocky and they created an instant bond. 

Nnadi said, "When I first got him, he was very timid. It made me think of how other animals, whether they're owned or in a shelter, are feeling scared and alone."

KC Pet Project chief communications officer, Tori Fugate, told CNN that Nnadi's donation had been"incredible."

"More than 100 available dogs in our care will have their adoption fees sponsored starting today," Fugate said of Nnadi's donation.

Its adoptable animals can be found here

Way to go, Derrick Nnadi! If anyone wasn't a fan before --they will be now!

Canadian Bookstore Offers Books, Coffee And Cuddly Kittens Available For Adoption

Imagine that: You enter a local book shop, looking for a good book for the weekend. Upon entering the shop, you are greeted at the door by a handful of cuddly kittens who are free to roam the space, climb on bookshelves and take cat naps on the window sills. Oh, and then you find out that the kittens also happen to be available for adoption. Sounds like a dream, right? 

Well, this Canadian bookstore offers just that. 

Otis & Clementine's Books and Coffee is located in Nova Scotia, Canada, and offers more than just compelling reads and organic coffee.

The local store owner, Ellen Helmke, started fostering kittens at her shop in May 2019: "It's a perfect fit having the cats here. It just makes space feel cozier," Helmke told Insider. "Sometimes people come in just to see the cats and sometimes people don't even know that cats are here. It's very cute. The idea for me was to have a continual supply of kittens in my shop that were all adoptable," she said. "I make sure that they've had all their shots and socialize them with people who come in and out of the store. Being around customers helps the cats learn to socialize with people, which likely makes it easier for them to get adopted. We have a 100% adoption rate, which is fantastic,' she said.

Fans and visitors of the store have started sharing and uploading adorable photos of kittens climbing on bookshelves and curling up on the chairs and couches inside the shop. They are also praising Helmke on the shop's Facebook page for making her shop a safe haven for rescue cats. This is Fantastic!

Cat Medley: Funnies, Cuteness Galore, Mourning And Loss

We searched through the most liked cat pictures on the subreddit r/cats, this week, and we decided to share them all with you!

The pictures all have one thing in common, and that is, of course, cats. However, that's where the similarities end. 

There are images of glow-ups, hilarious cats being hilarious, adorable-ness (naturally), and mourning and loss. We wanted to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of all these cats and remember those who have recently left us, they may be gone but never forgotten.
