I’ll be the first to admit this is a bit weird. One of the biggest events in Facebook history is set for September 20 in Amargosa Valley, Nevada when 1.7 million say they’re going to “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us.”
An animal shelter in Oklahoma City is using the #stormtheshelter hashtag in a parody asking people to stop by the shelter and adopt a cat or dog before traveling on to Nevada.
OKC Animal Welfare has posted a few of the animals up for adoption stating
“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!”
One dog is pictured wearing a tin foil hat (to protect from alien mind rays) and a cat is pictured with a little alien in the corner of the photo.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Area 51, it is the common name of a highly classified United States Air Force facility located within the Nevada Test and Training Range. Officially, the facility is called Homey Airport or Groom Lake, named after the salt flat situated next to its airfield. A lot of alien speculation has been debated over the years.
