Torrey Smith and his wife, Chanel, took time over the weekend to help animals who need a second chance find their forever homes.
Smith, who will play for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, and his wife picked up the adoption fees for 46 cats and dogs at an adoption event Saturday in Baltimore. With roots at the University of Maryland and the Baltimore Ravens, Smith added a little “extra” in the donation department, too, according to BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter).
“Last night at the conclusion of the runway show, Torrey took to the mic to address the crowd. Each year he reminds us all what this glamorous and grand event is all about — raising money and awareness for Baltimore’s homeless, neglected and abused animals. It’s safe to say that Torrey’s spirited and full-of-heart conclusion to the show is always a crowd-favorite moment,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.
“This year, Torrey surprised us all with a special announcement. He explained that before the show, he and his wife Chanel were discussing what more they could do for all the homeless animals they spent time with backstage. They wanted to make sure that every single one of them had an adoption application by the end of the night. Torrey and Chanel decided that they would cover the adoption fees for every single cat and dog at Pawject Runway — 46 animals, wow!”
