Pet Halloween Contests That Are Spooktacular!


Over the years I’ve entered Leroy in several Halloween contests.

Some we win and some we don’t but it’s not all about winning it’s about having fun and getting creative.

I always choose Leroy as my dog to dress up for Halloween because he is so just laid back and easy, whereas Sherman is not fond of having anything touching him that shouldn’t be touching him.


This year I’ve decided not to enter any Halloween contests and give Leroy a break from my shenanigans.

I know. I’m kind of disappointed in myself too, especially because Gracie decided she wanted to dress up as Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz. I could have total fun with that, but my question is why didn’t she want to be that last year when I suggested it?

I mean Leroy was the scarecrow after all.


And I’ve been contemplating the Big Bad Wolf dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood, but……I don’t know, I’m just not feelin it.

So anyway, I wanted to share some of the best Pet Halloween Photo Contests that I’ve seen taking place this year for those who are interested in having some fun:

Fidose Halloween 2013 Dog Photo Contest. This contest rocks and is open until 10/25/13. The prizes are amazing and super fun and 17 winners will be chosen! Yes 17 winners! That is awesome! You can read all the rules here and if you want to check out the entries so far check them out right here!  Just be careful because you might die from cuteness overload!

Pets Adviser 2013 Halloween Photo Contest. This is the contest that Leroy won last year and it was so much fun but so exhausting! There are tons of awesome prizes up for grabs here and the grand prize winner will receive $600 to donate to their favorite 501(c)3 nonprofit animal shelter or rescue group of their choice, a featured article on Pets Adviser about their favorite shelter or rescue organization and $100 cash for themselves! The contest is open until 10/28/13 and you can read all the rules here.

Pet360 Tricks for Treats Halloween Contest *. This is a really fun and unique contest where you share a picture or video of your pet performing an awesome trick! Two winners will be chosen (one for best pic and one for best video) and each will receive a $1,000 Halo prize pack and Freekibble will donate 10,000 meals of Halo’s Spot Stew to their favorite shelter. Eight finalists will also receive a $50 Halo Prize pack. The contest is open until 10/27/13 and you can read the official rules here. (* affiliate link)

Blogpaws October 2013 Photo Contest. In honor of Adopt a Pet Month, BlogPaws is having a photo contest where they want to see a picture of your pet in a cute Halloween costume or autumn scene. Prizes are available and this contest is open only to BlogPaws members.

Kurgo Dog Products. Kurgo is getting in on the Halloween fun too and has just launched a really fun contest where you submit a picture of your dog dressed up in a costume. The winner will receive a $150 gift certificate for, which has pet travel products. You can enter and read all the details here.

There’s a ton of other pet Halloween contests out there but these are the ones that I’m familiar with and have worked with before.

So what do you think? Are you thinking of entering any of them? What’s your dog going to be for Halloween and are you as disappointed in me as I am in myself?

I love Halloween photo contests too! I've entered a couple so far. I love dressing up my dog and I actually painted her for one photo shoot this year. Pretty fun!

Heck yes I'm entering! Actually, your blog is the first one I read tonight and I feel like I fell down a rabbit hole. We're also going to be doing a pet costume giveaway on the blog soon! Good times, I tell you!
