Enter your pet in Virtual Howl-O-ween Pet Costume Contest benefiting homeless animals


The annual Pet Costume Contest is taking place this fall despite COVID-19 forcing the cancelation of the annual DAWG Walk & Adoption Extravaganza Event.

This exciting virtual fundraising event, hosted by Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) and the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, raises money to support the homeless animals at the shelter.

To participate in the contest, submit photos of your amazing cat, dog or other pet. Submit one photo featuring one pet per entry, and the most creative, adorable Howl-O-Ween pet picture in each category will win a prize valued at $200.

Prizes will include dinner for two at a delectable local restaurant and a gift certificate from Chewy.com and Hala’s Paws for your fabulous fur companion. 

Photos can be submitted online through October 25 at this link.  The top contestants will be live-streamed on a special Halloween Day event on the City's YouTube channel at 3 pm. 

DAWG is asking for a minimum donation of $25 per entry, which you can make online here. Under message, type Howl-O-Ween contest and the name of your pet or send a check to DAWG: 27472 Capricho, Mission Viejo, CA. 92692 and write Howl-O-Ween contest and the name of your pet in the memo section of your check.

Get ready to dazzle us with your Howl-O-ween costume while raising money for the homeless animals at our shelter. For more information, email ask-shelter@cityofmissionviejo.org.
