The 2020 Super Bowl event came to an end with Kansas City Chiefs taking all the praises. As we got used over the last years, it was a fascinating event that went far beyond the sport itself.

Taking all the plaudits for his impressive work in the final, Derrick Nnadi, the Chiefs’ defensive tackle has also won all animal lovers hearts with a noble gesture. All after he choose to celebrate the win on such a lovely way.

Showing off his kind, selfless side, Derrick has given the residents of Missouri a chance to adopt a furry companion for free. This comes after the player paid the adoption fees for all the dogs at the KC Pet Project, Missouri. A really kind gesture for both the dogs and the people who wanted a four-legged friend, yet won’t afford one.

Taking the social media, the shelter made the announcement on Sunday. “We are so excited to announce that the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi is choosing to celebrate the Super Bowl win by paying for the adoptions of all the adoptable dogs currently at KC Pet Project!,” the group wrote in a Facebook post.

According to the shelter, there has been a long-term collaboration between the sportsman and the group. “We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with @dnnadi and he couldn’t have thought of a better ending,” KC Pet Project wrote on Instagram.

“All my life, I always wanted a dog,” Nnadi told BBC. “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.”
