Petco today announced a new collection of Halloween pet costumes now available at Petco stores nationwide and online at Petco.com/Halloween to help pet parents get ready for the trick or treat festivities.
New costumes include pumpkin hats, devil cape and superhero costumes.
For dogs looking to be the center of attention, pet families can consider Petco’s Halloween Taco Dog Costume and for those pet parents looking for film inspiration, Petco’s Star Wars Halloween Ewok Dog Costume (pictured). For pet parents whose cats will join in on the fun, the Petco Halloween Purrfect Pumpkin Cat Costume and Petco Halloween Octopus Cat Costume are entertaining ways to include your feline friend in Halloween activities.
In keeping with the festive spirit, Petco stores nationwide will showcase a series of family friendly in-store events throughout October:
