Chiefs defensive lineman DERRICK NNADI is celebrating their Super Bowl win by covering the adoption fees for over 100 shelter dogs in the Kansas City area.  One estimate put the total donation between $10,000 and $30,000.

All season long, he’s been working with a group called the Kansas City Pet Project that helps care for thousands of shelter animals each year.  Every time the Chiefs won a game, he paid a dog’s adoption fee to encourage more people to adopt.  The average fee is around $150, and the Chiefs won 15 games.  So that’s roughly $2,300.

Derrick said he was never allowed to have a dog as a kid but always wanted one.
