Larimer Humane Society Invites You to Raid the Shelter, Not Area 51
Couldn't bring home an alien? That's OK, Larimer Humane Society has an alternative for you, and you won't have to risk prison... or abduction.
Today (September 20) is the soon-to-be-historical (but mostly just a punch line) #Area51Raid, which started as a joke on Facebook but escalated quickly. Larimer Humane Society is using the trending hashtag to encourage you to 'raid' the shelter today and bring home a new pet (aw). You can see who needs a home here.
Other shelters across the nation are using the 'out of this world' idea; some of them even dressed up its adoptable animals as aliens.
