Does your guinea pig have the face of a pumpkin? Do you see a ghost lurking in your rat's eyes, or a superhero when you look at your ferret? If so, then that must mean Halloween is nearly here!
Get your hamster, rabbit, chinchilla, gerbil, hedgehog, sugar glider, mouse or other small animal pet in costume and snap a photo to upload to our Critter Halloween Costume Contest. Costumes don't need to be elaborate, perhaps you'll just perch a nifty beret on your rabbit's head or a cowboy hat on your hedgehog. You can also choose to add a costume using photo software. This is a good option if your pet is allergic to or afraid of costumes. Scroll down and complete the form to enter.
The contest runs through October 31, 2012. Your first entry earns you 250 Club Critter points (be sure you sign in to your Club Critter account before uploading your photo to earn the points). Club Critter points can be used to purchase items in the Avatar shop or redeem items from the rewards catalog.
Editors will select one winner after the contest ends. The winner of the contest receives 1,000 Club Critter points and his or her choice of a copy of the 2013 issue of Critters USA magazine, the 2012 issue of Ferrets USA magazine or the 2012 issue of Rabbits USA magazine, plus a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker. Two runners-up will also receive a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker.
This Halloween costume contest is open to small animal pets only (guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, etc.).
Note: Always keep safety in mind when working with a costume and your critter. Never leave your small animal pet unsupervised when it's wearing a costume and don't leave it in costume for too long.
Good luck, and have a Happy Halloween!
