Mission Pets Acquires Harry Barker Brand

Mission Pets, a leading manufacturer of pet apparel and accessories
dedicated to enhancing the lives of pets and their owners, announced today that it has acquired the
Harry Barker brand of fashion-forward and ecologically-conscious pet accessories. The move brings sales channel diversification to Mission Pets, allowing the company to expand beyond mass retail, where it is a major industry player. Harry Barker products will continue to be sold through unique retailers, such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Lands’ End, and L.L. Bean, along with specialty boutiques, home and gift shops, pet stores, and premium online retailers.

Harry Barker creates innovative and beautifully-designed products for dogs and the people who love
them. With celebrity endorsements and regular features in top news outlets such as O, The Oprah Magazine, InStyle, Vogue, People, Good Morning America, and The Today Show, Harry Barker’s unique
brand of stylish pet products has been a favorite with consumers since the company’s inception in 1997.

 “There’s a lot of sameness in the industry, but Harry Barker is special,” said Carmine Petruzello, CEO of Mission Pets and a fashion apparel veteran with an executive pedigree featuring Perry Ellis, Liz Claiborne and Macy’s. “Harry Barker is home décor that just happens to be for pets. These are stylishly crafted, high quality creations that pet owners can proudly display in their homes. We see tremendous opportunity to grow brand awareness and thoughtfully cultivate this business.”

Founded in 1997 by former fashion model Carol Perkins, today Harry Barker makes an array of pet toys, beds, treats, storage canisters, bowls, and spa products, all designed to beautify the home and bring joy to pets and pet owners alike. Perkins will continue to lead the brand’s product design, as creative director.

“I’m delighted that the partnership with Mission Pets will give us the resources to grow our assortment of handsomely designed, sustainably-made pet items, while giving me the opportunity to focus on what I love most—product design and development,” said Perkins.
