MANILA, Philippines - Scaredy Cats & Dogs,” the Halloween pet costume competition organized by the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), was held at the Fisher Mall Event Center last Oct. 24.

The 2015 Transylvanian Star (best pet in costume) was awarded to Jacks, a Pomeranian who came as Ghost Rider, while the Phantom’s Pick (most creative pet costume) was awarded to Klondike as Zorro, who was also the most photographed dog at the event

With a record-breaking 74 pets and 870 kids in attendance, “Scaredy Cats and Dogs: Year 9,” the annual pet and kid Halloween costume competition of The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) on October 27, 2012 at Eastwood City, was a certified hit.
PAWS’ celebrity supporters Agot Isidro, Zia Quizon and Carla Abellana were the judges in the pet division and were in total awe of the elaborate costumes.
Clearly, the owners had so much fun dressing up their dogs and cats for Halloween as dozens of pets paraded and showed off their innovative costumes onstage.
“The mananang-dog entry was unique and funny,” said Agot Isidro when describing the Mexican hairless dog Frida who donned miniature bat-like wings and a clove of garlic around her neck to portray a manananggal, a mythical creature who preys on human fetuses, while his owner Carlo Tabije was dressed as her victim, a pregnant woman.
