The 501st is a fan-run Star Wars group of cosplayers and philanthropists who dress as the villains of the Star Wars universe. However, while they're portraying stormtroopers and Sith Lords, the group is known for their charity work.
Recently, a detachment from Texas teamed up with Diamond Dachschund Rescue of Texas for a photo shoot and it is dark side adorable.
The pups in the picture have been rescued and are up for adoption. Check out the gallery for more looks, and click here to see more from the Cindy Kelleher and 501st photo shoot and learn more about adopting rescues.
