Halloween Pet Costume Contest
Join us for our first ever VIRTUAL, Halloween Pet Costume Contest,
to benefit Traci's Paws!
Join us for our 8th Annual Halloween Pet Costume Contest, virtual style!
This year we won't get to see you in person, but we WILL get to see you in pictures! We wanted to continue with the tradition of our ghoulishly fun contest and also help give back with giving a virtual artisan marketplace for our prize sponsors at the bottom of our page.
We will ask you to submit your photos so we can add them to this web page. This is home base for all votes! You can share your photo once it is here, and everyone may vote once. Share it to Facebook, in an email or in a text!
Contest runs from Oct. 1-22nd and we will have a short Zoom party with winner announcement on Halloween day.
Although it is not required to donate to enter or to vote for The Traci's Paws', Halloween Pet Costume Contest, we suggest making a $5 donation per photo and per vote to help us continue our work of assisting rescue organizations, shelters and centers, families with pets in the community, and military and veterans for Unleash the Holiday Cheer.
You do not have to live in San Diego to enter, but be in the continental U.S. in order to receive any prizes that must be shipped. We are asking our San Diego prize donors to provide access to gifts that may be used online so you may use them any time, and be anywhere, or to ship any actual items to the winners & runners up!
Meet Our Contestants!
How do you vote?
You cast a vote similar to how you like a photo on Instagram, by clicking on the heart! Be careful, once you've clicked and made the heart red, you've voted! If you click the heart twice thinking you've voted twice and it is no longer red, the vote is gone, so be careful! Just click back to make it red again! MAKE SURE THE HEART IS RED! This is a single vote contest, meaning you only vote one time. Double check that your heart is red before you leave!
Only 1 pet, no parents, no siblings, and no other pets.
May be several combinations such as 2 pets, 1 pet and 1 parent, 1 pet and 1 sibling, but only 2 contestants with 1 being the pet.
May be several combinations of 2 or more pets, parents, and siblings. This clearly must be a larger group than the "Duo" and everyone must be dressed up to be considered when the judges tabulate the votes.
Check back every day to see our new prize sponsors for our winners and runners up!
We are SO thankful and appreciative for these amazing small businesses and wanted to provide a Virtual Artisan Market for them.
We hope that you will consider clicking on them to see what they have to offer and shop with them for your pet needs now and any time in the future!
