Nigerian Pays $16,350 Adoption Fees Of 109 Dogs After Super Bowl Win
Nigerian born Derrick Nnadi has celebrated his Super Bowl victory by paying $16,350 fee for the adoption of all 109 dogs housed at the Kansas City animal rescue shelters.
This follows Kansas City Chiefs’ victory over San Fransisco in the National Football League (NFL) final in Miami on Sunday.
Nnadi, born in Virginia in his tweet- @Dericknnadi disclosed that the adoptions were the “perfect way to cap off this great season” after the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL’s.
In response, KC Pet Project, a non-profit animal shelter in Kansas City, Missouri- who are the owners of the pet shop, expressed gratitude to the Nigerian for paying an average fee of $150 for each of the 109 dogs to commemorate his epic victory at the NFL final.
“We’re so honored to partner with @DerrickNnadi who is sponsoring the adoption fees of all our adoptable dogs at our locations.
“44 pets left the shelter today (38 dogs and 6 cats) with new families and up to 30 more are going home tomorrow! Of the 109 dogs that qualified for the sponsorship, around 40-50 of those dogs will still be available after tomorrow, which is incredible. Thank you @DerrickNnadi!”
Nnadi had partnered with the KC Pet Project in his second year at the NFL, through his foundation – Derrick Nnadi Foundation.
In the partnership, he pledged to pay for a dog for every Chiefs’ win this season, which the Chiefs won 15 times, including the post-season match.
