The Kansas City Chiefs recently bagged the championship for the 2020 iteration of the Super Bowl. One of the perks of each player after getting the crown is a trip to Disney Land. One player, however, opted not to join the vacation. Instead, he used the money for a good cause, and that is dog adoption.Derrick Nnadi, one of the defensive-minded members of the team, vowed to pay the adoption fees for the available dogs of the KC Pet Project. According to the shelter, they have at least 91 dogs up for adoption. One adoption fee costs $150. This means Derrick has to donate around $14,000 to fulfill his promise.This, though, is not a problem for Derrick because, for him, a promise is a promise. He said that he would shell out his money for this advocacy. While it is big money, Derrick believes that it is for a good cause since he is a dog advocate.In a report by the animal shelter, all 91 dogs have already found their forever homes. When Derrick received this news, he became the happiest. For him, though it took some time for other dogs to get adopted, the wait is worth it.According to Derrick, he learned the value of loving dogs through his father. He recalled that young age, his dad would already instill in him to be good at dogs. Derrick’s dad, likewise, fostered some dogs before they get adopted. This is the reason why Derrick had a memorable childhood with different dogs.For now, Derrick is contemplating to found a foundation for dogs. He said that the foundation he will build would cater to the needs of abandoned dogs. The reason for this is that Derrick wants to be a bridge for these abandoned dogs to find loving homes.Credits to ABC World News Tonight with David Muir.
So you want to know more about me, eh? Well, I am a Canadian, husband, and father of two young men.
I would say boys but they are not really “boys” anymore. They are 19 and 17. But they will always be my little ones. :-)
And, of course, we also have a dog. He is an Affenpinscher. Also affectionately known as a Monkey Dog.
His name is Monty. Yes, it is after Monty Python as he is a funny, crazy character.
Dogs have always been a part of my life. My parents started and owned a Dog and Cat boarding kennel just 20 minutes north of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia.
I started this website as a way to give back to the dog community. Which is full of many extraordinary dogs and owners doing many different and exciting things.
I hope you come back often to enjoy the wondrous stories I find.
Thank You for your time and interest.
