AMI, sharing community kindness!

AMI Insurance - Head office

When a stranger’s beagle went missing in thick bush near Wellington, 39-year-old Whanganui carver Zane Hair volunteered to spend more than a week searching in cold and stormy weather, accompanied by his beloved 14-year-old bulldog Zeke.

After nine days, Benny the beagle was found alive and Zane formed a lasting friendship with Benny’s owner, Matt Newman-Hall. “What Zane did is incredible … I find it really amazing that someone was willing to go that far for a complete stranger,” he says.
