(PRESS RELEASE) OVERLAND PARK, KS — ZIWI USA Inc. celebrated its partnership with Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi by covering all adoption fees at a local Kansas City pet shelter. After the end of the Chiefs Super Bowl season run, ZIWI partnered with Kansas City Pet Project to cover all adoption fees for the dogs at its Kansas City, MO, shelter.

The gesture came after ZIWI witnessed the continued efforts Derrick has made to support the pet shelter community over the past several years. “After we saw how Derrick supported KC Pet Project by covering dog adoption fees during last year’s regular season and how he covered all dog adoptions in the shelter after their Super Bowl win, we knew this was a cause we wanted to be a part of,” said Mary Helen Horn, President and Director of ZIWI, USA. “Derrick believes every dog deserves a home and we believe every dog deserves the best in nutrition.”

The company’s efforts were met with praise. “ZIWI gets what it’s all about, and it’s finding these dogs their forever homes,” Derrick said. “It means a lot for them to step up and cover their adoption fees for this year.”

“KC Pet Project adopts out more than 7,800 pets a year, so we depend on these amazing collaborations to find homes for the animals that come to our shelter,” said Tori Fugate, chief communications officer of KC Pet Project. “We saw a tremendous response to Derrick Nnadi’s generosity in finding homes for all of our dogs in the shelter following last year’s Super Bowl win, and we’re so thrilled that his foundation, along with ZIWI, has helped dozens of dogs find homes this season. We’re so grateful for their support!”

The adoption campaign will cover adoption fees to allow more than 80 dogs to find their new forever homes, totaling more than $12,000 in adoption fees, as well as receiving a gift bag including products and other pet essentials from ZIWI.
