PetSmart Launches a “Monster Cute Photo Contest” in Time for Halloween
Published on October 19, 2011
Who says only human kids can have all the fun on Halloween? That's the thinking behind PetSmart's new Monster Cute Photo Contest, which comes with a pretty wicked grand prize: a cameo in a PetSmart commercial. All you need is a camera, a fabulous costume and a pet who can strike a spooky pose.
A recent PetSmart survey found that 17 percent of people plan to dress up their pets for Halloween — and the store has stocked plenty of ghoulish getups for the occasion from Top Paw and Whisker City. There's also a collection from Martha Stewart, who's dreamt up a dragon, a silver-winged devil and a fetching dracula.
Whether you’ve crafted something creepy from scratch or snatched up a costume at the store, you can submit a picture of your little monster in Halloween garb to PetSmart’s "Monster Cute Photo Contest," in conjunction with Greenies®, on PetSmart's Facebook page.
PetSmart will announce the 25 finalists on Halloween, and voting for the grand prize winner will go through November 3. The top monster will appear in a PetSmart TV commercial — and get $1,000 round-trip airfare to the commercial shoot (that's for the winner, pet parent and a guest) and a one-year supply of Canine Greenies® Dental Chews or Feline Greenies® Dental Chews.
In-Store Fun This Saturday
You can also bring your furry trick-or-treater to PetSmart’s annual, in-store Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest on Saturday, October 22, from 3 P.M. to 5 P.M. Three winners will be named at each store. The treat: a voucher good for Greenies, Toy Shoppe® or Grreat Choice™ dog and cat toys!
