When he visited a PetSmart store in Southlake on Saturday, the Pro Bowl-bound wide receiver helped an animal rescue group called Lost Paws Rescue of Texas by donating money to buy an entire table full of food for the dogs helped by the rescue group.

"Thank you to Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver Dez Byrant for supporting Lost Paws Rescue of Texas," the group's Facebook page post stated. "Dez purchased this entire table of pet food for the dogs in our rescue group."

On Monday, Bryant released an announcement on his personal Facebook page stating that he has been invited to play in the NFL Pro Bowl.

"Just got a call from Mr. Jones about participating in the Pro Bowl," Bryant posted. "God is everything thank you."

According to, Bryant finished the 2016 season with 50 receptions, 796 yards, and eight touchdowns. Bryant has been playing wide receiver from the Dallas Cowboys since 2010.
