In a galaxy not so far away, stormtroopers have swapped blasters for bunnies, all in the name of charity.

Members of Capital City Garrison -- an Eastern Ontario-based chapter of the worldwide Star Wars costuming organization, the 501st Legion -- outfitted themselves in their best galactic garb to celebrate Star Wars Day, May 4, and pose with a variety of shelter animals. Their mission was to promote animal adoption and find homes for the rescue pets of the Ottawa Humane Society.

The images were photographed by Rohit Saxena, an Ottawa shelter photographer and featured the franchise's stormtrooper, Garindan and Tusken Raider characters, CBS reports.

May the furs be with you.
