Not sure what to get your favourite furry friend for Christmas this year? Fret not, Karen Walker’s new capsule collection has been designed with your pooch in mind.
To support SPCA New Zealand, Karen Walker has adorned a capsule collection of quirky homeware and clothing accessories for you and your four-legged friend alongside some quirky with her custom print ‘Animal Magic’.
Animal Magic draws on classic Karen Walker icons and features a navy, black and blue colour paletted. For your furry pals, there’s a dog bandana, raincoat, and a cobalt blue leather dog collar and leash.
To make sure you look the part when out walking your pooch, there’s a dog walkers’ rain poncho, cap, sun hat, and graphic print T-shirt.
A long-time supporter of SPCA New Zealand, Karen and her Australian Labradoodle, Laika, are ambassadors for the Society. â€śIn the past year over 41,000 animals were rescued and cared for by SPCA,â€ť Karen says, â€śFor Laika and me, knowing that weâ€™re helping to support their incredible work makes this collection an extra-special gift.â€ť
Between 6 November and 31 December, Karen and her teamâ€™s goal is to raise NZ$20,000 in order to fund the SPCA National Rescue Unit (NRU) for one year. The NRU is comprised of a group of internationally qualified emergency response volunteers, including inspectors, who provide a technical rescue service for trapped animals, as well as those affected by natural disasters.
To raise the NZ$20,000, Karen will be donating 15% of the sale price of every Animal Magic item sold until 31 December 2019 and her retail stores will be offering a special edition gift wrap for a gold coin donation as well as encouraging donations into SPCA collection buckets in-store.
â€śFor many years SPCAâ€™s been a key focus for fundraising for us and our global communityâ€™s always been very supportive and generous so we do know that again this year weâ€™ll be able to count on them to get behind the project, helping to fund the SPCA National Rescue Unit for at least a year,â€ť says Karen.
The Karen Walker Animal Magic collection in support of SPCA is available now in all Karen Walker stores, karenwalker.com and selected boutiques and department stores.
