Too cute to spook!

Is your feline ready to be a cat o’ lantern? How about your pup becoming the cutest Halloweenie? 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 trans-fur-mation into all-things happy and haunting.

The League’s Howl-o-ween Pet Costume Contest is free to enter. (Yes, 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 6 through November 2. Don’t forget to share the contest details with your friends and family, and encourage them to participate, too. We want everyone to be wrapped up in the fun! 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 spooktacular or bootiful.
  2. Submit your pet’s photo at
  3. Enter by November 2!

The first-place winner will be featured on our Facebook page with a dedicated article and receive a prize pack of treats … and maybe a few tricks.

Whether you’re spooky in the suburbs or creepy in the city, we want to see every rabbit who is a reindeer, each cat who is a cowboy and all dogs who are dinosaurs—you get the point. Enter today! Creativity is not only welcomed, but it’s also encouraged! Highly encouraged!
