Americans are shelling out big bucks to dress up their pets for Halloween!

The National Retail Federation says more than 30 million people across the country will spend an estimated $460 million this Halloween to dress up their furry friends.

They say this is double the amount that was spent in 2010, when the federation began tracking Halloween pet-spending.

Overall, Americans are expected to spend nine billion dollars to celebrate Halloween this year.
