In celebration of the team’s first title in 50 years, defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi covered the adoption costs for nearly 100 Kansas City shelter dogs, KC Pet Project announced on Twitter.
Nnadi, who collected four tackles in the Chiefs’ 31-20 over the San Francisco 49ers, retweeted KC Pet Project and added: “The perfect way to cap off this great season.”
KC Pet Project told ESPN that 20 dogs had found new homes as of early Monday.
The organization called Nnadi’s contribution “an incredibly generous gesture,” adding, “we want to thank Derrick for his support all season long.”
The player first became an advocate for shelter dogs after adopting one himself while at Florida State, For the Win reported.
