We do ask that all participants pre-register for the event so that we have a paw count--we'd hate to run out of treats! The suggested donation for the Nebraska Humane Society is $10 per dog.

Upon checking in at the registration table, each dog will be given a special Trick-or-Treat bag. You'll want to keep that handy, because Trick-or-Treating time will begin right after costume winners are announced. After registering, we'll have a host of great games and activities for your dog to enjoy before the costume judging begins. Pin the Tail on the Cat, Bobbing for Beagle Bagels and the Candy Corn Catch are traditional favorites. If your dog isn't really into playing games, no problem--spectators are always welcome.

Costume judging will begin around 10:30 am. To be considered for the costume contest, be sure to bring your pooch by the judging table between 10:30 and 11:30 for our panel of (almost) experts to evaluate. Once a top five in each category is chosen by the judges, semi-finalists will be called up on stage for the final round of judging (around Noon). A finalist in each category will then be chosen as our Grrrrand Prize Winners.

Pet Psychic Theresa Falk
If you’d like to gain more insight into your four-legged friend, or get in touch with a pet that has already crossed the rainbow bridge, this is a great opportunity. Pet Psychic Theresa Falk will be doing 10-minute sessions for just $10 at our Midtown Crossing store the day of the event, with all proceeds going to the Nebraska Humane Society. To setup an appointment with Theresa call our Midtown Crossing location at 402-715-4500. Walk-ins are welcome too.
