Then he made it rain at a local pet shelter, paying the adoption fees for 91 dogs in search of a home.

KC WINS! We are so excited to announce that the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi is choosing to…

“We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with Derrick and he couldn’t have thought of a better ending,” KC Pet Project’s post reads. “This partnership has been sponsored by the Derrick Nnadi Foundation.” According to ESPN, the adoption fees usually range around $150, so that’s quite a chunk of change.

Nnadi started partnering with the KC Pet Project in September, just as the football season kicked off. Any time the Chiefs won, he would sponsor a hard-to-home dog for adoption.

The KC Pet Project helps animals in both Kansas City, MO and Virginia Beach, VA where Nnadi grew up before attending college in Florida.

In addition to being a Super Bowl champion, Nnadi is also a dog owner himself, so he knows what it means for dogs to get good homes.

“Thanks to his incredible support following this win, more than 100 available dogs in our care will have their adoption fees sponsored starting today,” the organization told CBS News. “We’ve had an average of 20 new dogs coming into our shelter every day recently so this comes at a great time as our shelter is full of wonderful pets looking for homes.”

ESPN reports that as of Monday afternoon around 20 dogs had been adopted, so if you’re in the Kansas City area and want to give a forever home to a precious pup, head on down.
