New Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith is quite a fan of shelter animals.

Over the weekend Smith and his wife, Chanel, committed to paying the adoption fees of 46 animals at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, according to the group's Facebook page.

The pair were at Pawject Runway, an event to raise money and awareness for Baltimore's homeless, neglected, and abused animals when Torrey took the microphone. He told the crowd that they wanted to make sure every cat and dog at the event had an adoption application by the end of the night and that they would pay for it.

Drew Rosenhaus, Torrey's agent, matched the donation to BARCS, the shelter said.

"The Smith family went above and beyond, making an extra donation on top of each animal's adoption fees. It was the best finale we could ask for," the shelter stated. "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."

Smith played football at the University of Maryland and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in 2011. He also played for the San Francisco 49ers before signing with the Eagles.
