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.
To make the photo series a reality, the animal welfare group partnered with volunteer photographer Rohit Saxena and the 501st Capital City Garrison, a volunteer group that makes costumed appearances as Star Wars villains at charity events and other functions. The 501st’s motto is ”Bad guys who do good."
The photo series was made public just in time for May the 4th, unofficially known as Star Wars Day.
The series stars dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and even a rabbit. A Tusken Raider, a stormtrooper, and Garindan also took part.
More than 150,000 dogs and cats enter the shelter system in Canada every year. In the United States, that number is closer to 6 to 8 million. Petfinder, Adopt-A-Pet and the ASPCA can all help you find the perfect animal companion.

This is a lot of fun...
Just beware, if you ever leave your iOS device unattended around me, I will absolutely pull this prank on you. Just ask my wife , she knows first hand. :D
Here's what you do
1. Grab your friend (or spouse's) iOS device and click on the Settings app.
2. Navigate to General > Keyboard > Shortcuts.
3. Click on the + in the top right corner to add a new shortcut.
4. Put a common word (ie. but) in the Shortcut field and then something funny in the Phrase field (ie. butt). That way whenever they type that common word -- in a text message, chat, email, etc. -- it will be replaced with your funny word or Phrase.
In the screenshots below you can see I've use the example of making the word but a shortcut for the word butt. It's a very subtle change that will ensure whenever the person types "but" it gets changed to the word "butt".
Here's some other fun ideas:
Phrase: I love [insert your name]
Phrase: Someone please slap me for using the word bae
What are some good swaps that you might do? Leave them in the comments below!

This afternoon I spotted Mama Owl sitting in the door of her house for the first time in a couple of weeks. Today was a little warmer, so it's possible that she didn't feel the need to incubate her eggs, or just maybe there are now little baby owls hatched down in the bottom of the house. My best guess, based on how it's gone in prior years, is that we're a week or two away from seeing the first baby peeking out of the door. It's all very exciting now!
