PEORIA (25 News Now) -The Little Beaver Brewery has gone to the dogs!

The 2nd Annual Pet Central Helps Halloween Costume Contest was underway this afternoon.

The contest had two rounds: single pets and group costumes.

Each one was based on three different criteria: creativity, originality, and authenticity.

Aside from the fun, there’s a larger problem that the event is looking to address with its fundraising.

Stephanie Buhrow, Pet Central Helps Fundraising and Special Events Coordinator, says “the animals that we have, we take care of all their medical needs. We’ve had a lot of emergency cases recently, so anything we can donate to that medical fund.”

Registration was $10 and they are hoping to bring it back for next year.
