Pets with scary, funny or homemade Howl-O-Ween costumes can win a year’s supply of food or $100 PETCO.com online gift certificate by participating in PETCO’s online Howl-O-Ween Pet Photo contest. America’s votes will determine three grand prize winners.
To enter, pet parents simply submit a photo of their pet in an original, scary or funny costume and write a short description – 50 words or less – about their pet, the costume and what qualities make their pet unique.
PETCO.com judges will select the four most creative, funny or inventive photos of dogs, cats and small pets as finalists and post them to PETCO’s web site. Then it will be up to the public to vote for their favorites. All entries must be received by Oct. 12. Don't have a costume for your pet? PETCO is a pet parent’s Halloween headquarters. Shop PETCO.com’s Halloween Store or visit a PETCO near you.
Online voting begins on Oct. 19 and runs through Oct. 31.
In addition to the online contest, PETCO’s more than 870 locations will host an in-store Howl-O-Ween pet costume contest on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m.
