Here are some tips when picking out the perfect Halloween costume for your pet. Make sure the costume does not limit his or her movement, vision, breathing or ability to bark or meow. For some pets, wearing a costume can be uncomfortable and stressful, so monitor them for signs of discomfort, and if he or she seems distressed, remove the costume and opt for a festive collar or bandanna instead.

We hope you’ll visit our adoptable pets online and then visit them in person at one of our locations. Our staff is ready to help you make a love match this Halloween. We’re ready to help you find the pet of your dreams!

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
