OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma. (WVLT) -- By now, most people on the internet have at least heard of or read something about the fake raid on Area 51.

More than a million Facebook users have signed up for a fake event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us," saying they want to storm the Nevada military base on September 20 to “see them aliens.”

But an Oklahoma animal shelter is asking people to turn away from Area 51 and come to them instead.

The OKC Animal Welfare center in Oklahoma City posted on their Facebook page on July 19 saying, "Come storm our shelter...We have great animals ready to protect you from the Area 51 aliens."
