The whole “Storm Area 51” thing has been all over the news lately…
Around two million people have now signed up to storm it in September and find evidence of an alien cover-up!
The viral sensation also inspired a different kind of rescue mission…
OKC Animal Welfare, an animal shelter in Oklahoma City, took advantage of the story by holding their own event.
They posted on Facebook and Instagram last Friday, asking people to come adopt a pet to protect them from any Area 51 aliens that escape!
They posted photos of different cats and dogs in tinfoil hats.
Then their hashtag “StormTheShelter” started going viral…
And a bunch of pets have been adopted, including at least two dogs in the photos!
Random people online have also been donating to the shelter, just to help out, and they’ve raised over $2,400 so far!
Have YOU ever adopted a pet from an animal shelter?
