CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — In October, pet lovers got to vote for their favorite costume in Richmond Animal League’s first “Howl-O-Meow-O-Ween Costume Contest.” While plenty of pets dressed up in their Halloween finest, only one pet got to the take the crown — quite literally.
Mambo No. 5 took the winning spot with his “King of Halloween” costume. The runners up in the top give were Kendall as a giraffe, Magpie as Wonder Woman, Harold as a sailor and Mia as a pumpkin.
While Mambo No. 5 has been adopted, Richmond Animal League says the rest of the top five are still looking for homes. There are also plenty of other dogs, cats and kittens available for adoption, including others that dressed up for the contest.
You can see some of the best costumes in our slideshow:
