Former Ravens WR Torrey Smith and wife Chanel helped give dozens of animals a happy home over the weekend.

While attending the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)"Pawject Runway" event, the Smith's decided to cover the cost of the adoption fees for 46 animals. BARCS took to their Facebook page to show their appreciation stating: 

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.

Smith is originally from Virginia but has deep roots in Baltimore. He attended the University of Maryland before being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in 2011. Smith played 4 seasons with the team, including their 2013 Super Bowl winning season, before signing a deal with the San Francisco 49ers in 2015. He is currently on a 1-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles
