10 Halloween Costumes For Cats And Dogs

They can’t partake in the Halloween candy, but that doesn’t mean your four-legged family can’t dress up for the annual costume party. And while pets in 2018 enjoy a record number of costume options, the current problem is sifting through the growing number of choices! That’s why we’ve assembled this handy list of last-minute costumes for cats and dogs, all of which are available online or at a store near you. Happy Halloween!

For a mythical beast, the unicorn certainly has some reach, inspiring everything from rainbow-toned foods to colorful home decor. If your cat or dog embraces a similar verve, this whimsical costume is a cute way to embrace their unique and playful nature.

People are rarely surprised to find that Chewbacca, the faithful, furry companion still widely regarded as filmdom’s best sidekick, was inspired by George Lucas’ actual dog. So we can’t think of a more appropriate hooded costume way to celebrate your your faithful four-legged companion.

The Queen of the Nile was famed for her beauty, smarts and savvy, and we’re betting your furry feline has adopted similarly regal airs. It’s hard to envision a costume better suited to the general feline mood.

7. Cheerleader Puppies

Your dog probably isn’t the best tumbler, but s/he is always in your corner, which is what makes this cheerleading outfit with built-in pom-poms so perfect for Halloween. Go team!

Is your cat sweeter than candy? If so, this adorable hand-knit sweater, sold alone or with a matching hat, makes it easy to feel festive and ward off winter’s coming chill.

5. Doggie Ghostbusters

Dogs are better at cuddles and kisses than hunting actual ghosts, but your pooch’s adorability meter will definitely be off the charts in this cute costume that also helps feed real dogs!

This satin cape is an easy way to increase your cat’s Halloween street cred, with an easy one-size-fits-all style and velcro band that also fits small dogs.

3. Urban Lions

Your pet already acts like the King of the Jungle, so this Halloween, you might as well make it official! This playful faux “mane” essentially works as a headband suitable to dogs of all sizes. Like all Animal Rescue Site products, this purchase also helps to feed rescued animals.

2. Animal Angels

Is your sweet dog essentially an undercover angel? Here’s your chance to dress him or her in the heavenly trimmings they deserve. If your pet acts a little less than saintly, more devilish colors are on offer.

1. Pirate Pets

This cute pirate’s cap is a great way to commemorate your best four-legged friend, and it’s probably also pretty appropriate, considering that — awesome as they are — most dog’s will steal your food in a second. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!
