Does your furry friend have that interesting aesthetic that you just couldn't resist? Do you think you and your dog look-a-like? Or are you totally obsessed with all things costumes?

If you said yes to any of the above - then we want you! Join us for the inaugural Jo's Ugly Dog Contest on October 28th from 12 pm to 3 pm. Each winner will win coffee for a year and, better yet, all funds raised will go to help rescue animals.

Enter your dog in one or all of the categories below:

Category #1: Ugly Dog competition (but really...we know they're totally the cutest)

Category #2: Doppelganger competition (do you look like your dog or find yourself wearing the same bandana sometimes)

Category #3: Best Dressed competition (it's ok, we know you can't resist sharing your love of costumes with your doggie - neither could we)

To enter the competition please make a $10 donation to AHS, email your dog's photo to, and RSVP to attend the event on October 28th.

On October 28th at 1:30 pm at Jo's Coffee on 2nd, our celebrity judges will crown the 2018 winners.

Just want to watch the competition? Join us! We'll have drink and food specials, animal vendors, and an adoption event hosted by the Austin Humane Society.

Thank you to our event sponsor, Jo's Coffee Downtown, as well as, our event paw-tners Cru Wine Bar, Upstairs Circus, Bumble, and more!

For questions or information on vending opportunities, please reach out directly to Erin Jolly, AHS Events Coordinator at or 512-685-0118.
