The Zenmar Dogs & Cats
In 1990, Ralph Wismer, President of Zenmar brought "Puppy" to Zenmar. Puppy was an eight week old yellow Labrador Retriever. In today's world, too often in business, everything is black and white. Ralph decided that he would use Puppy as part of the Zenmar logo. And so it began. The Labrador has been a part of our logo since 1990. Puppy has always been displayed with the signature hard hat. As we purchased newer Zenmar vehicles his likeness graced the vans. He quickly became recognized as the Zenmar mascot.
In 1998, Reilly joined the Zenmar team. Eleven year old Reilly was our present mascot. Today, you will find the dog on anything that has Zenmar on it. Sadly on March 23, 2010, Zenmar said goodbye to Reilly, our beloved Mascot. Zenmar has received many offerings of sympathy and condolences since Reilly's passing. We take this time to thank each and everyone who has remembered him to us.
In January of 2011 Zenmar adopted its first "rescue dog". Murphy was at the Baltimore Humane Society in Reisterstown, MD. At the time of his adoption he was 7-1/2 years old. We believe he was a Springer Spaniel/English Setter mix. Like his predecessors, Murphy came to work each day at Zenmar. In July of 2016, Zenmar said goodbye to Murphy.
On December 20, 2016, Zenmar got their first “rescue” cat. Holly was adopted from Baltimore County Animal Services. This was the first cat for owner Ralph Wismer. She was approximately 13 months old, found as a stray and had a litter of kittens at the age of 8 months. All her kittens were adopted but for some reason Holly kept being overlooked at the shelter. Seeing her post on Face book, Ralph decided it was time for a cat. Always having dogs, this has been a fun new experience.
In February 2017, one of the shelter advocates mentioned to Ralph’s wife Anne that they had a 9-year-old cat named Sully who they were having trouble getting adopted. Many people prefer younger cats or kittens. Like his sister Holly, he was found as a stray. On February 24, 2017 Sully became part of the family.
The Zenmar “dogs” are now the Zenmar “cats” and we couldn’t be happier.
