Why do zebras symbolise the Amack Consultants brand?
I admire zebras, both for their individuality and their team spirit. They've evolved to survive in tough environments by collaborating as a herd even though each individual is unique. Driven, assertive and successful, they are goal-oriented with group interaction at the foundation of their existence.
Andrea McGeachin, CEO
No two zebras have the same stripes - each is unique and stands out amongst the crowd.
Not only do zebras interact and strategise as a herd, they are able to mingle with other species including giraffes and antelopes who benefit from their alert and protective nature.
Zebras are known for their strength, power, stamina, agility, clear-thinking and spiritedness.
Phoenix French Bulldog Rescue has been established not only to offer a home to any Frenchie (or crossbreeds) in need, but also to educate the public on this wonderful breed, promote good ownership and to assist in keeping Frenchies at home with their families wherever possible.
Amack CEO Andrea has two rescue Frenchies, and feels that the breed has been misunderstood with their celebrity status, and that, because of their popularity, control has been lost in terms of financial gain from breeding.
Andrea says, "Theresa and team are an amazing group working hard to support the dogs and the practices and the education. I admire the spirit and professionalism of their organisation and achievements."
