Unleash your creativity and celebrate Halloween with your pet for a worthy cause! The Can Company is bringing back its popular “Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Competition/Baltimore Dog Festival”, one of the City’s most popular pet events, on Saturday, October 27, to benefit the Baltimore Humane Society. Certain to become a Halloween tradition for pet lovers, the event will feature more than 100 dogs, imaginatively dressed in seasonal costumes. Dog owners and their four-legged friends can compete for prizes in the following categories: Most Original, Most Baltimorean, Matching Dog/Human, and Best Last Minute.
Dog owners must register their costumed pets for the competition on the day of the event. The registration fee is $20. Registration fees and all other proceeds from the Costume Competition/Baltimore Dog Festival will assist The Baltimore Humane Society, one of the few no-kill facilities in Maryland, in providing temporary homes and care for unwanted and homeless animals in the region.
