ENID — Atwoods hosting pet costume contest

Halloween is about a week away, so it’s time to start thinking about your pet’s costume.

Atwoods Ranch & Home in Enid will hold its 16th annual pet costume contest Oct. 30 beginning at 2 p.m.

Over 15 pet supply sponsors have donated $10,000 in pet supplies for prizes.

The contest will include several weight categories, and there will be four wining places in each of the categories. A grand champion and manager’s choice also will be named.

All entries will receive free pet treats and the chance to win one of many door prizes.
