Halloween Is Going to the Dogs (& Cats!)

Every Halloween, we dress up as our favorite pop culture icon, the latest Disney princess, or the latest Joker iteration. But why should the humans have all the fun?

At GreaterGood.org we believe when you adopt a pet, they become a part of your family and part of your family’s fun! This year, include them in your festivities. Many pets love dressing up—they’ll wag their tail, purr, or even relax in their costume.

If your pet is one of these animals who love a good disguise, we have compiled a few of our favorite ideas for you!

Remember that your pet’s health is more important than cute pictures, so if they look stressed or uncomfortable, leave the costumes to the humans.
