AUSTIN (KXAN) — “Prepare yourself. Friendship is coming.”

From the kennel to your couch, Austin Animal Center (AAC) is hoping you’ll adopt a furry friend Saturday and Sunday this weekend during their “Game of Homes” event, inspired by hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” which premiere its final season on Sunday.

Some of the critters available to be your next “Hand of the King/ Queen” include Rabbit Baratheon, Mother of Puppies, Kahl Doggo, Samwell Tabby, the Lannipurrs, Arya Bark and more!

NO MORE ROOM! Austin Animal Center reaches capacity, sends plea for adopters 

Event organizers have set an $8 adoption fee in honor of the eighth season of the show. The adoption event runs from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday so you may have your new best friend cuddling with you on your throne as you settle in to watch the season premiere Sunday at 8 p.m.

Want to really get in the GOT mood? Dressing up is encouraged. 

What’s more Middle Age and Renaissance characters from Barony of Bryn Gwlad, the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, will duel it out for Iron Bone on the shelter front lawn. 

Of course, that’s only if the weather permits it. Luckily, the KXAN Weather team says winter is NOT coming but there may be some rain and stormy weather Saturday. (See the forecast here
