Small pet costume judging will take place at 1pm.

Pet vendors will be at the event at the corner of North Park Avenue and Garfield in downtown Winter Park. That includes Big Paw Pet Care. Stop by our booth for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Cheesecake Factory just by signing up for our monthly email. Our own dog trainer will be there to answer your questions about your dog’s behavior issues. And you can chat with Nick, our pet first aid and pet CPR instructor, about our upcoming classes.

Help Greyhounds Find New Homes At The Winter Park Pet Costume Contest

Proceeds from this even benefit the Sebastian Haul Fund. Created in 2008, The Sebastian Haul Fund helps greyhound groups with the financial challenge of transporting greyhounds from Florida adoption groups to other groups outside of the state where there is a better chance of them finding their “forever homes”. Since 2008, we have helped over 1 000 greyhounds. This fund was created in loving memory of a very special greyhound, named Sebastian.

You don’t have your pet’s Halloween costume picked out yet? No worries, The Doggie Door carries a full line of hip and trendy pet Halloween costumes for you to choose from.

Don’t forget there’s lots of dog-friendly shopping on Park Avenue and a plethora of dog-friendly dining options. So don’t miss this fun, annual event. Make plans to join us in Winter Park on Sunday October 27! For more information about the Winter Park Pet Costume Contest, please visit The Doggie Door’s event page.
