Does your pet do a cool trick or look great in a costume? Let your pet strut their stuff and you could win some great prizes!

Here’s whatcha do:

Upload a photo or video of your pet’s talent or fresh look online (Imgur and YouTube are good tools to use).
Email the link, along with the subject line “Pet Contest”, to to enter the contest.
Share your entry by posting it on our Facebook page or by tagging us in a tweet (optional).

We’ll survey the entries and choose two winners, one for Best Dressed and one for Most Talented.

Then, swing by our Three Ring Circus on Sunday, September 25 for the opening reception of See Acts of Audacious Daring! The Circus World of Judy Onofrio and be part of a pet parade in the afternoon. An audience favorite award will be given away to one of the parade participants. And, the winners of the online contest will be announced, although you need not be present to win those prizes. All winners will receive a $50 gift certificate.
