Derrick Nnadi of the Kansas City Chiefs uses Super Bowl win to find pets new homes

Derrick Nnadi really knows how to pay it forward.

The defensive tackle with the Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs used Sunday’s victory on the field to help get shelter pets into new homes.

Nnadi, who many might remember as the player who played in the confetti during post-game celebrations, is paying the adoption fees for all the animals — 109 of them — at the Kansas City Pet Project.

“The perfect way to cap off this great season,” Nnadi tweeted.

The news came soon after the game.

“We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with Derrick and he couldn’t have thought of a better ending,” the Pet Project announced.

The Derrick Nnadi Foundation has long been helping, kids, people and pets.

All season, he has been paying pet adoption fees after each Chiefs win.

The Super Bowl, of course, is the biggest win of all.

On Monday, 44 pets found forever homes courtesy of Nnadi.

Six cats and 38 dogs have new families, and up to another 30 are set to leave Tuesday.

Nnadi called the adoptions simply, “Wonderful.”

Kind of like this.

Still, another 40 to 50 pets with ties to a Super Bowl champ are looking for their new families.

Nnadi is rather humble about the whole thing.

He is getting nothing but the highest praise from football fans and animal lovers alike.

Let’s just call him a party animal.
