Times photo Marianne Kelly ANIMAL enthusiasts can display their preference for dogs or cats with new fashion t-shirts to generate money for SPCA Auckland’s annual Paws Appeal Week. Designers, Meadowlark and Cybele, donated the shirt designs respectively, one each for cat and dog lovers, also used in a range of tote bags, mugs and kids tees. This year, SPCA Auckland needs to raise $200,000 to meet increased running costs. The items went on sale from November 3 to coincide with the beginning of Paws Appeal Week. Designer Cybele Wiren, of Cybele, says the dog print is a little character that “epitomises adorable and adoptable”. “He’s inspired by beloved pets I had as a child that came from the SPCA.” Claire Hammon, of Meadowlark, says the cat print started with a big black feline called Samuel. “He’s part of the Meadowlark offce team and the inspiration for our latest collection, The Love Cats.” A necklace has been produced exclusively for the campaign, with $65 from the sale of each going to the SPCA.
