NFL fans have found a way to honor the life of Dwayne Haskins.

Via Jori Epstein of USA Today, 299 donors have given nearly $6,500 collectively to Wolf Trap Animal Rescue. The Northern Virginia group experienced a 430-percent uptick in donations from Saturday through Tuesday, as fans made contributions in memory of Haskins.

Why Wolf Trap Animal Rescue? Fans who were trying to come up with a charity to support on behalf of Haskins identified the group because Haskins supported it in 2019 during the league’s annual My Cause, My Cleats initiative.

“Dogs are a man’s best friend,” Haskins said in 2019, via the Commanders website. “We just love spending time with them — they bring a whole bunch of energy — and they make my day brighter.” The article also includes a video of Haskins opening the box containing the custom cleats he wore and further discussing his support o Wolf Trap Animal Rescue.

  1. I have welcomed two rescued dogs to my home. Rescuing is a worthwhile cause. Give generously.

  2. Animal welfare groups do wonderful work. The way we treat animals is a reflection of who we are. What a great way to honor Dwayne’s life. Please also consider supporting your local Humane Society.

  3. This is awesome. Please remember people, adopt, and do not buy from breeders. When you use breeders, you fuel the system that puts these poor animals in peril.

  4. We should have heard about this many times you hear the bad side of the NFL and it’s players
    Very seldom do you hear the good things players do for the communities
    And the rest of the world.

  5. Good to see people honor him this way. People did the same when Betty White died. We need to see more of this type behavior from people.
