2021 Pet Walk

The costume contest is one of the most popular events at Pet Walk each year. Not all of us will be in person this time but we’re not going to let that stop us – welcome to the 30th Annual Pet Walk Costume Contest – hybrid edition!

On April 17th walkers will be able to participate in the costume contest at North Straub Park as well as on our main SPCA Tampa Bay Facebook page, @SPCATAMPABAY. We’re giving 47,000 of our closest friends the opportunity to vote on their favorite costumes IN REAL TIME! Prize announcements coming soon.

To get registered for the contest, complete the online registration form and submit the $10 registration fee. Then show up to North Straub Park with your pet in their best outfit OR get your pet all dressed up and submit a photo using the link provided in the registration confirmation email before THUR, APRIL 15th at 6pm.  The contest will take place LIVE during the  Pet Walk event at 11am* on April 17th. You do not need to attend the event  to win.
