We know with Halloween coming up, people are going to dress up their pets in all sorts of fun and crazy costumes.

So to embrace that, we are excited to kick off our first annual Halloween Pet Costume Photo Contest!

We invite you to send us a photo of your pet all gussied up in his or her costume. We will post each photo and ask you – our readers – to vote for your favorite.

The photo that receives that most votes will win a $30 gift certificate from our friends at local pet boutique, Lulu & Luigi.

But please, only dress up your pet if you know he or she is OK with it. While we want you to have fun with this contest, we don’t want to cause any undue stress to your pets.

If, however, your pet is a ham and loves being dressed up for Halloween or any other occasion, here is a gentle reminder to please make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. You don’t want it to constrict his or her movement or hearing, or impede his or her ability to breathe, bark or meow.

In addition, make sure your pet’s costume doesn’t have any small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that he or she could choke on.

When your pet is ready, take a photo and email it, along with your pet’s name and what he or she is dressed as, to [email protected]

The photos and voting will be posted below.

You can submit your photo anytime through 11:59 pm on October 31. The winner will be announced on Monday, November 3.

We are looking forward to seeing all of your furry friends dressed up in their (or your) favorite costume!

Meet the contestants and vote for your favorite!
