Breitbart: An animal shelter in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, thanked those who responded to their viral Storm Area 51-themed Facebook post on Monday.
“The response to #stormtheshelter has been out of this world! Thank you all who have supported, shared, donated and adopted,” the OKC Animal Welfare shelter wrote.
“Let’s continue to show everyone that adoption isn’t that far out of this world and support your local shelters!” the post concluded.
The initial post that went viral over the weekend included pictures of available pets wearing tinfoil hats and alien costumes.
“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!” the Facebook post said.
The OKC Animal Welfare later confirmed that two of the animals featured in the post, a pointer-boxer-mix and a Labrador mix, were adopted. The shelter also reportedly raised $2,250 for the Patrons of the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter.
