We're ramping up for Pet-A-Palooza, hosted by All American Subaru in Old Bridge and New Jersey 101.5 on October 19 — featuring a pet adoption event, a Halloween pet costume contest, pet supply vendors, music, family fun and giveaways.

But first: We want to see your cutest pet picture, for a chance to win hundreds of dollars in prizes!

We'll have an online vote here on NJ1015.com and the free NJ 101.5 app to select the cutest pet in all of New Jersey. One grand prize winner will be awarded a $500 Gift Certificate to P.C. Richard & Son!

Send in your pic, and come to Pet-A-Palooza for even more pet-tastic fun!  Photo submission for this contest starts on Sunday, Sept. 22 and concludes on Friday, Oct. 4. Voting will take place Saturday, Oct. 5 to Wednesday, Oct. 16. The grand prize winner will be announced at Pet-A-Palooza at All American Subaru in Old Bridge Saturday, Oct. 19.

UPDATE: We've completed taking submissions, but you can vote for our finalists here. Thanks to everyone who sent their pics in!

All selections and judgments by New Jersey 101.5 staff are final.
