Shelter renting out dogs to pokemon players: False

If you’re a dog lover, or a Pokemon Go player, on Facebook you’ve probably seen (or had someone mention to you) this post:

A quick search and it was quickly proved to be false.  Snopes link.

Apparently there IS a shelter, who is attempting to get people who are playing Pokemon Go to walk their dogs.  Very cool concept.  It gets dogs out of the shelter for a bit, gets them exercise, and gets them out in public.

However they aren’t RENTING the dogs out.  They haven’t made a fortune on the scheme.  They haven’t sold off all their dogs.

Folks, Google (or the search engine of your choice) is your friend when it comes to this sort of thing.  Before you share that too good to be true post do a quick search and make sure its not fake…..k?
