Eagles WR Torrey Smith & Wife Pay Adoption Fees For 46 Animals at Baltimore Shelter
Torrey Smith may not play for the Ravens anymore, but he still cares about the city.
The current Philadelphia Eagles WR and his wife paid adoption fees for 46 animals at BARCS Animal Shelter’s “Pawject Runway.” They also made a donation on top of the fees.

“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!
The Smith family went above and beyond, making an extra donation on top of each animals’ adoption fees. It was the best finale we could ask for.
Thank you, Torrey and Chanel, for always looking out for Baltimore’s homeless dogs and cats and having such a big heart for our city.
Tomorrow, we will announce the total amount raised at Pawject Runway. As for today, everyone get some much-needed rest, and thank you all for making the 5th Annual Pawject Runway a lifesaving success.”
After spending his first four years in Baltimore, Smith spent the next two years with the San Francisco 49ers before signing with the Eagles this offseason.
