Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi promised to pay the adoption fees for more than 100 dogs if his team won the Super Bowl.

He's now done good on his promise and, as a result, the animal shelter in Kansas City is empty, as every dog has found a home.

"Because of Derrick Nnadi's generous sponsorship, our Petco Adoption Centre has no more dogs to adopt," the non-profit wrote on Facebook.

"Yay for so many lives saved!"

Nnadi's promise was part of his partnership with the Missouri animal rescue organisation. For every Chiefs win in the season, he agreed to pay a dog's adoption fee.

The Chiefs won 15 games, including the postseason.

Then, they made the Super Bowl.
