This is beautiful game has the most beautiful soul.

A Chilean soccer team recently waltzed onto the field with dogs from a local shelter to raise awareness about adoption in that country.

The football club, Colo-Colo, wowed the crowd — and the internet — with its kindness and love of animals.

The dogs were also pretty cute.

Colo-Colo brings adoptable dogs onto the field during a recent game.

The dogs without owners were treated as mascots. Royalty in sport, really.

Awwww!

The fans went wild for the gesture.

Colo-Colo, by the way, has signed on with animal welfare group Unión de Amigos de los Animales.

Dogs and soccer, after all, is a win-win.

Colo-Colo, by the way plays in the Primera Division de Chile, finished the game in a no-score tie.

But that didn’t matter.

You can see more of the dogs here. Just watch from around 1:34 until about 2:04.
