KANSAS CITY, Mo. — UPDATE: All dogs have been adopted at a Kansas City shelter thanks to Chiefs' defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi.

Original Story:

A member of the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, and former Florida State University player, is celebrating the big wins by helping man's best friend.

The Kansas City Pet Project announced Monday morning that defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi is paying for the adoptions of all the adoptable dogs currently at its facility.

In a Facebook post, the organization said it has had an amazing, season-long partnership with Nnadi. Back in September, Nnadi promised to cover adoption fees for dogs after every Chiefs win.
