TAMPA, Fla. – BluePearl Veterinary Partners launched the second annual BluePearl Beastly Costume Contest, a nationwide Halloween costume contest for pets that is scheduled to run from Oct. 1 through Oct. 27. The winner will be announced Oct. 30.
To enter, participants must upload a photo of their cat or dog in a costume to the BluePearl Beastly Costume Contest on http://www.facebook.com/BluePearlVeterinaryPartners.
The five photos to receive the most votes will become finalists, so participants are encouraged to have their Facebook friends and family vote for their pet. A winner from the finalists will be selected by judges from BluePearl.
For every vote, BluePearl Veterinary Partners has pledged to donate $1 (up to $5000) to Frankie’s Friends, a charity that provides financial assistance to pets whose families are unable to afford lifesaving specialty or emergency treatment.
The grand prize winner will receive a one-year supply of premium pet food from Hill’s Pet Nutrition. The second prize winner will receive a stylized portrait of their pet valued at $700, and the third place winner will receive a $100 gift card to Posh Puppy Boutique or Cat Palace USA.
