Best-Dressed Pets Contest Winners

Written on November 18, 2013 at 3:12 pm , by

There’s nothing cuter than a pet with style, right?

Back in September, we asked readers to submit photos via Facebook and Instagram of their pets dressed up in costumes. We received more than 600 entries. A panel of judges somehow narrowed the list down to 30 finalists–the creativity was endless, and the general public then got a chance to vote on their favorite. Here are the top five winners of our Best-Dressed Pets contest, chosen by you.  Fair warning: these pictures are too darn cute for words!

To check out all of the super cute entries, flip though our Best-Dressed Pets Facebook album.

  1. Family Circle my pug was in the top 5 when the contest was supposed to end, in actually 4th place, several hours after it was supposed to end. You kept the voting open for almost a full day after it was supposed to end therefore the princess leia cat & hamster as a dinosaur conveniently pushed my pug out. I highly recommend you check the TIME STAMPS of your voting in the contest. That is not fair. The contest was supposed to end at the end of the day on the 15th at midnight est, and he was 4th place even 5 hours after.

  2. P.S., there were a few finalists, like the bull dog that was hulk that were stolen right off the internet!

  3. The last one is a guinea pig, not a hamster.

  4. Thank you so much and thank you to all who voted! We are so excited that Bebe won in her penguin costume. Will Family Circle contact me via instagram for prize info? I’d like to donate her prize to Phoenix Assistance Dogs so they can get some supplies for their assistance dogs in training. Thank you for a great contest!

  5. We are so proud of our little pirate Rhett! Thank you for such a cute little contest.
