By now you’ve probably heard that there’s a Facebook event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” and that around 2 million people have signed up to be there on September 20th.
Set aside the fact that, as with any Facebook event, you can expect about 1% of people who say they’re going to actually go. Also, set aside the fact that the government can, in fact, stop all of them. The harebrained event itself has actually inspired something good.
Because while the U.S. military is discouraging people from coming by, one Oklahoma animal shelter is welcoming anyone who wants to storm their facility and go home with a pet.
You know, as opposed to (probably) getting arrested or (possibly) getting shot looking for aliens in the desert.
“Come storm our shelter… We have great animals ready to protect you from the Area 51 aliens. Adoption isn’t that far out of this world! #stormtheshelter”
The dogs are also sporting tinfoil hats.
You know, just in case.
And all of the animals photos are now set against space backgrounds.
Also, too sad – they have 116 dogs, 39 cats, and 2 pigs ready and waiting for their forever homes.
So if you live in the area and have room in your heart and house for a new furry friend, get moving!
