Countdown to Halloween: The Best Dog and Cat Costumes of 2015

We don't mean to scare you, but Halloween is only days away. As we count down the days this week, we'll be sharing our favorite fan-submitted photos of dogs and cats. For those of you who are procrastinators, don't worry; there's still time to find a costume for your pet and share a photo with us. All you have to do is post an adorable photo of your dressed up pet on our Facebook page for a chance to be featured in the photo gallery below.

Remember: Creativity counts! If you can wow us with your originality or make us laugh, then there's a good chance you'll be picked. Of course, we also always appreciate the classic witch or ghost costume. In any case, have a fun and safe Halloween, and remember to make sure any costume you put on your pet is comfortable, doesn't restrict their movements and doesn't have any decorations or buttons that could be chewed off and swallowed. Now, get to snapping those photos!
