DETROIT – Detroit Lions Punter Sam Martin is putting on a Halloween contest on social media for your dog!

Martin has partnered with Premier Pet Supply in Beverly Hills to bring fans a chance to showcase their dogs dressed up in Halloween gear while raising funds for a great local cause.

Contestants will log on to their social media outlets starting today (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and post creative and fun pictures of their dogs dressed up in Halloween costumes with the Hashtag #KickOrTreatfor6.

First place will win 4 tickets to a Lions game and FREE Dog Food for a year!

Second place will win 2 tickets to a Lions game and a Premier Pet Supply Gift Card and third place will also receive a Premier Pet Supply Gift Card.

For every Post uploaded to social media outlets with the hashtag #KickOrTreatfor6, Sam Martin will donate $6 to the Michigan Humane Society and Premier Pet Supply will donate 6lbs of dog food to MHS as well.

"We are very excited to be teamed up with Sam Martin in a campaign that benefits the Michigan Humane Society and of course a great cause," Said Premier Pet Supply owner, Mike Palmer. "Being in the Pet Supply business myself, I know that there are many pets in need and a campaign like this is great for the pet population in Michigan"

Being partnered with the Michigan Humane Society on multiple events before, Lions Punter Sam Martin has a passion for helping animals in need. "It's always been an interest of mine to help out animals in need and partnering up with the Michigan Humane Society and Premier Pet Supply is a great way to continue to help support animals right here in Michigan," Martin said. "Being a dog owner, I think it will be a lot of fun seeing fans dress their pets up in creative costumes for Halloween."

Participants can get as creative as they want with their pets because Sam is looking for the best Halloween related costume idea anyone submits with #KickOrTreatfor6

Contestants will have almost the whole month of October to submit their photos.

Sam will announce the winners of his Halloween social media campaign on October 26.
