THE RSPCA in Malaga is getting a makeover thanks to business duo Kara Kachinski and Angelique Retuga.

Based in Heathridge and Mt Lawley, the pair operate as Coco Lily Interiors – named after their pet dogs.

“We both love animals very much and wanted to do something to help animals in need,” Ms Kachinski said.

“The RSPCA’s reception area and conference room were looking a little tired and have never really had any decorating done to them, so we thought it was a perfect opportunity to help.”

They advertised for painters willing to donate their time, with Masters Home Improvement Joondalup, Wall Candy Wallpaper and Harvey Norman Joondalup donating supplies.

“We will be using the existing furniture since it all looks good and is still in great condition,” Ms Kachinski said.

“It will be more welcoming for the public to come in and make a donation or adopt an animal, and for the staff it will make it more enjoyable working in a happy environment.”

She thanked RSPCA staff members Mark Richards, Laura Fischer and Laura Stevenson their support.
