Different stripes: Zebra Tile adopts a zebra from local zoo
July 1, 2006
In a touch of whimsy aimed at raising awareness for both a local zoo and its own store, Zebra Tile of York, Penn., has adopted an animal from the Maryland Zoo based on its namesake. The zebra - named "Tanzie" - will not actually be moved to the tile dealer's showroom, but the store has received an adoption packet including a certificate, photo and information about the animal, Zebra Tile says. Pictured left to right is zookeeper Colleen Baird; Tom Evans and Katie Martin of Zebra Tile; and Lanie Contreras, pr manager for the zoo.
