Animal Rescue Centre Want You To Raid Their Shelter - Not Area 51

Animal Rescue Centre Want You To Raid Their Shelter - Not Area 51

No one really has a clue what's going on with Area 51, do they? There's a million people that are apparently planning on storming the famous US military base that supposedly houses aliens. A plan has been hatched to get in to the highly classified facility using pebbles - fool-proof, we know.

The US Air Force has issued a warning to all the people threatening to attempt to get in (pebbles or not) and one animal welfare centre is suggesting a different course of action - to storm their shelter.

Jumping on the topical bandwagon, OKC Animal Welfare took to Facebook in a bid to encourage people to steer away from Area 51 and get to Oklahoma, US, instead.

They wrote: "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!"

People can't get enough of the post, which currently has over 1,000 comments and nearly 8,500 shares.

Another said: "Wonderful & creative pictures! You all do a fantastic job in terrible circumstances. Thank you for what you do!"

One curious poster asked how many adoptions they have had since the original post yesterday, to which OKC Animal Welfare responded saying: "We had 22 adoptions yesterday, and although adoptions don't start until noon today, we have high hopes!" Great work, guys.

Despite people melting at the post in general, you might have noticed that the shelter opted to include intergalactic-esque pictures. The adorable dogs are dressed in tin-foil hats with little cartoon aliens to accompany them.

The shelter is open for adoptions every day from noon until 5:30pm and you can search for pets that are available for adoption here.

All of the adoptable pets have been spayed or neutered, have age-appropriate vaccinations and have been treated for worms.

Adoption fees for dogs and cats are $60 (£47) and a special reduced fee of $30 will apply for animals in some circumstances including being in the adoption program for more than two weeks, pets 4-years-old and up, two or more pets adopted together, pets adopted during promotional events and pets with certain medical conditions.
