KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WTHR) — The Kansas City Chiefs are the Super Bowl champions, and one player is celebrating in an animal-friendly way.

Chiefs' defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi decided to celebrate his team's win by paying for the adoptions of all adoptable dogs at the Kansas City Pet Project.

"We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with Derrick and he couldn't have thought of a better ending," the KC Pet Project wrote on Facebook.

The paid-for adoption applies to all dogs at the KC Pet Project that were adoption-ready on Feb. 2 or before.
