Howl-o-Ween

Starts at 2pm, 31 October on Facebook Live. Celebrating all animals at Halloween.

Welcome to Howl-o-Ween - an all-animal virtual celebration on 31 October. The day will be full of spooky fun for the whole family - human, animal or otherwise - ending with our Home Pet Show Final.

We hope that you'll help us to raise much-needed funds for all of the bats, cats, rats, creepy crawlies, mice and other animals in our care by entering or watching our Home Pet Show.

What's on 31 October

14:00-14:45 - Welcome and Howl-o-Ween Quiz. Get ready to play along.

15:00-16:00 - Howl-o-Ween Crafty Hour. Get creative with baking, crafting and face painting - don't forget to share yours with us as you go!

16:00-17:00 - Howl-o-Ween Home Pet Show Final. 8 contestants from across our network take part in a live, virtual, all-animal pet show, competing to be crowned Best in Spooky Show.

Enter the Home Pet Show heats from 16 October

Take part from 16 October across our network of branches and animal centres for our Howl-o-Ween Home Pet Show heats. Simply find an event on our interactive map to take part in your local virtual pet show, whatever your pet, wherever you live.

On 31 October we'll host a live Zoom final where our top 8 regional winners will compete to be crowned the 'Best in Show'. Could your pet be our spooky superstar?

Rosettes and certificates will be given to all of our winners, and an exclusive RSPCA hamper will go to our overall winner.

Four categories to enter plus an art competition

We're sure there's a perfect category for your pet, you can enter them in as many as you like.

Entry costs £4 per category and is made by posting your pet's picture, or video to one of our 20 Howl-o-Ween Facebook Events, accessible from the map below, or our main Facebook Events Page.

Regional winners will have the chance to be selected for the live final on 31 October.

Our Howl-o-Ween Home Pet Show isn't a pet fancy dress competition as we think your pets are picture-perfect in their naturally spooky state. We'd still love to see humans in their fancy dress finest though.
