Torrey Smith spent three seasons as a wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens, and even though he’s suiting up for the Philadelphia Eagles this year, his heart still belongs in the crab cake capital of the world.
Smith and his wife, Chanel, paid the adoption fees of 46 homeless dogs and cats at the BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter) runway show.
“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.
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! (BARCS/Facebook)
Who can’t root for a guy like that?
