Banding together in celebration of Banfield Pet Hospital’s grand opening inside an L.A. PetSmart on La Cienega Boulevard, a plethora of ‘pup’ stars struck poses for a pop star at the “Does Your Pet Look Like a Grammy Nominee?” costume contest.

Fans of Fidos and famous faces cheered for doggie doubles of chart toppers like Adele, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and more as former Dancing with the Stars winner Drew Lachey decided which rockin’ Rover would waltz away victorious.

A presentation for a paws cause, not only did the top three canine contenders receive a year’s worth of free veterinary care through the Optimum Wellness Plan, Banfield Pet Hospital also donated 20 percent of its opening weekend revenue to the SPCALA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles).
