Don’t accuse Malik Jackson of taking the money and running.

The Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle made his mark on the community this spring, sponsoring all adoption fees during a two-day event held by the Jacksonville Humane Society that saw 181 pets find new homes.

Through his foundation, Malik’s Gifts, Jackson put up the funds for all the event’s adoptions and made a personal visit to adopters and fans, signing autographs, taking pictures, and talking about the importance of adoption and fostering.

The timing of Jackson’s generosity was much appreciated, as the Jacksonville shelters were full prior to their May adoption event.
