Halloween isn’t just for children and adults anymore; many people are now including their pets in the annual tradition. In fact, dressing your pet up in a Halloween costume means BIG business for retailers, as consumers are expected to drop big cash to outfit Fido and occasionally his feline counterpart this year.
According to a recent National Retail Federation survey, consumers are expected to spend a record $310 million this year on pet costumes.
Here at Patch, we embrace all pets, and want to see what costume your pet will be sporting for Halloween!
We want to see those pets in costume, so post your photos and you could win a $50 gift card!
You have until Oct. 28 to upload the best photo of your pet in costume.
