Chiefs star Nnadi pays adoption fees for over 100 dogs after Super Bowl triumph

February 4 2020 9:44 AM

Derrick Nnadi became a Super Bowl champion with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday and has marked the win by stumping up the adoption fees for all of the dogs at the city's rescue centres.

The defensive tackle was part of the Chiefs team that fought back to defeat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Miami.

Nnadi later revealed he would fork out the adoption fees for over 100 dogs currently available for adoption at every location of the KC Pet Project.

The 23-year-old had previously paid for a dog's adoption after every Chiefs win this season, which tallied 15 including the post-season.

The project posted on Twitter: "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 replied to that post saying "wonderful" and previously wrote it was "the perfect way to cap off this great season".

The Chiefs trailed by 10 heading into the fourth quarter at Hard Rock Stadium before putting on 21 unanswered points to stun the 49ers.
