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!

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.

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