With over a million people planning to invade Area 51, an Oklahoma-based shelter are inviting people to ‘storm their shelter’ instead… and the alien-inspired dog pics are simply out of this world!

The infamous Area 51, which is located in the Nevada desert, is believed by millions to be home to mysterious UFOs and extraterrestrial life.
And recently, a bemusing social media event by the name of ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’ has riled up over a million people who are, apparently, going to invade the secret US base on the 20th September.
Hmm. We’re not too sure how that one’s going to go. But, at least the saga has given us some cute AF dog pics to look at. Introducing the alien-defending-canines of Oklahoma City Animal Shelter!
Meet the tin-foil-hat wearing canine guardians!
The city-centre animal shelter took to Facebook to make the best out of the bizarre event:
“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!
That’s right, people! These adorable pups are tin-hat-ready and prepared to ‘protect you from the Area 51 aliens’!
People can’t get enough of the post, which now has almost 2k comments and 11k shares.
But we can't blame you, internet. Just look at them… they’re the four-legged heroes of our dreams!
And they’ve now raised over $2,000
The post, which was initially a lighthearted joke, has conjured up support for the shelter from all around the world.
As well as boosting the shelter’s adoption rates:
"I adopted Neeka from the shelter today. She seems to be settling in nicely. ?"
"I adopted my new fur baby yesterday!"
It’s also mustered up over $2,000 in donations for the shelter - and it's set to continue. Well, it totally shows what a bit of creativity can do!
