Rescue organizations have been using whatever they can do to adopt out cats and dogs.
We wrote about a Brooklyn rescue shelter using celebrity names to make their adoptable critters more enticing, by naming dogs and cats after Christy Turlington or George Clooney
So when a adoptable cat named Corey at Monmouth County SPCA was noted to have an uncanny resemblance to Kylo Ren, social media picked it up immediately.

It sparked wide interest in Corey the cat and a frenzy erupted into who would be able to adopt the cat. Emily McCombs won out and the happy ending is Corey now has a new name: Kylo Ren.
