- In some of his searches, he visits homeless people and helps them take care of their pets
A Nigerian-American Peter Elueze, the founder of Paw Salvation, is rescuing homeless pets in the US and giving them a safe space.
The need to start his organisation was borne out of the concern for the uncertainties that face pets without homes.
In going an extreme mile for them, he most times travels to the street to get food and toys for them and even grooming and vetting services for them.
He does not only get the pets off the street but also helps those whose owners are homeless too.
In a video shared by ABC, he was seen talking to a homeless person, telling them that he should not worry as his pets would be well fed and taken care of.
Elueze said that taking the pets off them is helping their situation as they would have one less thing to worry about.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerian-American footballer, Derrick Nnadi of the Kansas City Chiefs, celebrated his Super Bowl win in a very special way by adopting more than 100 dogs.
In speaking with the media, the American footballer said he had always wanted to have a dog as a pet as a kid but his parents never allowed him.
That changed during his senior year of college and he got his first dog named Rocky which inspired in him the desire to help other animals.
Nnadi said Rocky made him believe that animals, whether they are in a shelter or owned, have a strong sense of fear or aloneness.
This informed the decision he took in his second year in the National Football League when he partnered with the KC Pet Project, a non-profit organization that caters to animals.

With the arrangement, he pays for a dog’s adoption fee for every time his team wins. Before the Super Bowl, Nnadi said he would pay for every dog’s fee at the shelter.
The Nigerian-American said that promise made him go all out to play hard and fulfilled his words. Tori Fugate, the KC Pet Project chief communications officer said with the support, more dogs will be sponsored.
