Strapping into outfits and posting fun pictures on social networks for the world to see, judge, comment and vote won’t be the same without the spirited and spooky whims of adorable pooches and kittens.

A Petco survey shows that 59 percent of owners will celebrate Halloween with their pets this year, up 9 percent over 2015. About a third of the pet parents shared this will be their first time having their pets join in the festivities.
