To celebrate Star Wars Day and to raise awareness about the plight facing shelter animals, The Ottawa Humane Society made the genius decision to pair adoptable pets with some of the galaxy’s most dastardly villains.
Somehow, the cute animals manage to make even the stormtrooper look cuddly.
Your dose of completely adorable for the day comes to us via the 501st Legion: Capital City Garrison. These dedicated Star Wars cosplayers (some of the best in the galaxy, let it be known!) have done a set of photos posing with shelter animals from the Ottawa Humane Society to promote the adoption of homeless pets.
Photographer Rohit Saxena then captured this extraordinary photo series and posted it online for all to see and admire. Bunnies, guinea pigs, dogs, and cats were all lovingly showcased in the images, making them unique, uplifting, and out of this world. May the fourth be with you!
