BARCS 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.

Torrey Smith spent four seasons playing for the UMD Terps, and another four seasons with the Ravens. In 2015, Smith signed with the 49ers, and most recently joined the Eagles. Although he hasn’t played with Baltimore since the 2014 season, you can’t question his contributions to the city.

This past Saturday, Torrey and his wife Chanel attended the Baltimore Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS), Pawject Runway event. According to BARCS, The Smiths covered the adoption fee for all 46 animals at the event in hopes of having every pet adopted.

Nothing worse than walking through an animal shelter knowing you can’t take every animal. This is an awesome gesture from Torrey, and a reminder to consider adopting. You give a down and out dog a shot, and that loyalty will be tough to match.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
