Need an excuse to dress up your pet this Halloween? Well, now you've got one. PetSmart is offering one furry customer the chance to appear in a national TV spot.

Pet parents can now enter the sixth-annual “Scare Your Way into a PetSmart Commercial” contest by uploading photos of their pets decked in their Halloween best on PetSmart's Facebook Fan Page. In addition to being cast in a TV commercial, the grand prize winner, who will be announced November 1, will win $1,000 cash and receive free round-trip airfare to the commercial for themselves, their pet “parent,” and an additional human guest. Pet Smart is also giving away more than $3,600 in cash prizes and gift cards to other participants.

Just in case you're not a big fan of Facebook (and let's be honest, who isn't?), participating PetSmart stores around the nation will host their annual Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest and Photo Event on Saturday, October 23, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time. Pets can strut their stuff in the parade and have their photo taken. Plus, the first 100 pets will receive a free goodie bag sponsored by Nutro/Greenies. Costumes, paparazzi, and swag. What more could a Halloween hound dog ask for?
