Rohit Saxena / Ottawa Humane Society


If you felt a cute disturbance in the Force this month, it was probably because of the work of two amazing groups coming together for a good cause. The 501st Capital City Garrison, a chapter of the 501st Legion Star Wars costuming group, worked with the Ottawa Humane Society on a project that will have you geeking out and eager to help shelter animals!

Star Wars characters from the Garrison posed with bunnies, dogs, and more pets from the Ottawa Humane Society for a series of beautiful portraits taken by photographer Rohit Saxena. On the following slides, see more photos from the project and learn more about it from our interview with Saxena!
