The post has since been shared more than 25,000 times and has garnered thousands of likes, but most importantly, the shelter has received a huge response from Pokémon Go players who'd like to help, according to a report by the Huffington Post.
On Wednesday morning, Muncie Animal Shelter Director Phil Peckinpaugh told the publication he already had a "line of people here" waiting to walk the dogs. It's unclear if the shelter is also a Pokéstop or Gym, but snagging some Poké Balls and potions would be a nice little bonus. But, of course, the whole point is to help dogs in need instead of just trying to evolve your Vulpix into a Ninetales.
Peckinpaugh urged other shelters to make similar appeals to Pokémon Go players, saying, “I hope it catches on like fire." Somebody should get this dude a Charizard. But it turns out you don't actually have to find a shelter like Muncie to help save dogs while playing the game.
