News updates: The Chiefs star’s heroic act has saved over 500 ‘at-risk’ dogs, with his charity dating back to 2019.
The act of charity starts at the top with the Hunt family and trickles its way down to the players on the field.

Moreover, the Hunt Family Foundation provides financial support to hundreds of charities tackling various growing community issues.

How the Hunt Family provides financial support to numerous charities tackling ranging problems
The charity shares its finances in percentages to aid certain charitable funds: 55% of its support is directed towards children’s health and wellness, 25% to children and families in crisis, 15% to civic response, and the final 5% to the legacy of the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL.

Additionally, the Chiefs have eight separate charitable programs that they encourage supporters to actively become a part of.

The franchise prides itself on helping the wider community and knowing that there is a bigger picture outside of football.

Football unites people of different backgrounds, ages, sexes, religions, and ethnic backgrounds.

However, it is not just people that need to be looked out for in the world which one Chiefs star has proved.

Derrick Nnadi has saved over 500 dogs since 2019 from potential euthanasia
Chiefs defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi has been a guardian angel for numerous dogs around the world and has given them another shot at life.

Per ESPN Africa, Nnadi has saved over 500 dogs by sponsoring their adoption in the past four years.

“Many of these dogs did, or could have, fallen into the ‘at risk’ category, meaning they were candidates for euthanasia.”

The Chiefs star’s love for the dogs is highlighted through this courageous act and he shows that we need to look for the ‘little guys’.

Nnadi has saved 500 dogs and they are now given an extra life that they thought could not possible.

Nnadi celebrated his first Super Bowl ring through his love for dogs
His adoption of dogs stretches back to 2019 when he paid the adoption fee for one dog after every Chiefs win at the Kansas City Shelter.

Furthermore, he celebrated his first Super Bowl win the same year by paying for every dog’s adoption fee at the shelter.

Nnadi is a brilliant example to other players around the league and the NFL encourages charitable behavior through the Walter Peyton Manning Award.
