Boo! It’s time for the Howl-o-ween Pet Costume Contest

You’ve heard of the Great Pumpkin, but what about the Great Pup-kin? Does witchcraft frighten you as much, say, a witch-cat? If you and your pet have been ready for Halloween since, well, last Halloween, the Dumb Friends League has a contest for you. We all know the spirit of Halloween isn’t just for humans, and now is the time to show your pet’s enthusiasm for all-things happy and haunting.

The League’s Howl-o-ween Pet Costume Contest is fun and free to enter. (You read that right, free!) Submit a photo of your pet (or pets) wearing a costume for the chance to win! Enter as many times as you like from October 28 through November 4. Be sure to share the contest details with your friends and family, and encourage them to participate, too! Pets do not have to be adopted from the League to win. Participating is as easy as:

  1. Take a picture of your pet looking positively haunting or absolutely adorable.
  2. Submit your pet’s photo at
  3. Enter by November 4!

The first-place winner will be featured on our Facebook page–a dedicated post all about them.

We want to see every guinea pig who is a pineapple, each cat who is a caterpillar and all pups who are puppuccinos—you get the point. Enter today! Creativity is not only welcomed, but it’s also encouraged!
