Derrick Nnadi is celebrating his team’s Super Bowl victory with some philanthropy.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive tackle has announced he will pay all of the adoption fees for dogs currently at the KC Pet Project shelter. That’s going to make it easier for over 100 pooches to find forever homes.

KC Pet Project currently has 117 dogs up for adoption, according to its Website. Adoption fees for canines typically range from $75 to $300, valuing Nnadi’s donation at between $8,775 and $35,000.

Nnadi has been partnering with KC Pet Project all season through the Derrick Nnadi Foundation, a non-profit that helps several groups (including families and children) in a variety of cities, with a focus on Virginia Beach and Kansas City.

“Derrick’s father taught him at a young age that ‘As Nnadi’s we don’t receive, we give’ and The Derrick Nnadi Foundation embodies that mantra through all of the work that it does,” the foundation says on its Website.
