New Zealand designers have created a range of dog and cat themed items to raise money for the SPCA.
The designs by Cybele and Meadowlark are part of the SPCA Paws Appeal Week which starts on Monday.
Cybele Wiren of fashion label Cybele has designed a range of t-shirts for adults and children featuring a dog with rose-like fur.
“He’s inspired by the beloved pets I had as a child that came from the SPCA,” she says. “I was excited to be approached by the SPCA to do this project.”
Claire Hammon of Meadowlark says her team was inspired by an office member – a big black cat called Samuel – to create a range of t-shirts, tote bags, mugs and a necklace with the slogan “Love Cats”.
“We’re stoked to be collaborating with the SPCA, who do an incredible job trying to ensure every cat – and every other animal besides – get the love Samuel does.”
Paws Appeal week is the SPCA’s annual appeal week and this year Auckland SPCA is aiming to raise $200,000.
Auckland SPCA chief executive Christine Kalin says she thinks the designs are wonderful and wants to thank the designers for contributing to helping animals.
“We’re really grateful for the generosity of the designers who did the designs free for us.”
Ms Kalin says there has already been a lot of interest in the designs and hopes people enjoy their items, knowing they are helping a good cause.
“We would like people to wear the t-shirts with pride.”
Adult t-shirts are $49.99, children’s t-shirts are $34.99, tote bags are $19.99 and mugs are $24.99.
The designer gear goes on sale today at www.spca.org.nz.
