Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi celebrated his team's Super Bowl win by giving residents a chance to adopt a furry loved one for free.

Nnadi paid the adoption fees for all dogs who were at the KC Pet Project on Sunday, giving the shelter animals an opportunity to find new homes. The Missouri-based shelter announced the news on social media Sunday after the Chiefs came back from a double-digit deficit to win the NFL championship.

"We have had an amazing, season-long, partnership with @dnnadi and he couldn't have thought of a better ending," KC Pet Project said on Instagram.

The shelter added a video to its Instagram Stories of a line of adoption applicants Monday. Many were wearing Chiefs gear.

We apologize, this video has expired.

The Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, in a comeback rally that shocked viewers. The Chiefs scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

Sunday's win marked the Chiefs' first Super Bowl win in 50 years and only their second ever.
