This week, we get to meet Zookeeper Dawn! Aside being one of the friendly faces we can always depend on to see in the Zoo World chat, she also volunteers with the Humane Society! What a heart of gold! Be sure to read on to discover more about Zookeeper Dawn and find out which sweet and exotic creature she’s had as a pet before!
1. Where are you from?
I am currently living in Peace River, Alberta. But the hubby is in the trucking business so we get transferred a fair bit.
2. How long have you been playing Zoo World?
I started playing Zoo in Sept. ‘09 after seeing all the adds etc. My daughter was looking at it and got me interested. I have become addicted very quickly.
3. What’s your favorite part of Zoo World?
HONESTLY?? The friends… I play the game, get the animals, do the achievements, but lately it has been [about the] chat and my zoo friends. I have become very close with some, probably never meet them in real life, but we chat, talk on the phone, share etc. My day starts and ends there.
4. If you could be any animal, what would you be?
Any animal?? I love the cats, but my favorite are the Sugar Gliders. I have had them in real life as pets and they are so entertaining. A pic of my baby glider is currently my profile pic. Play, eat *sweets* as they like the sweet fruits the best, curl up with loved ones and sleep. Their families are very tight.
5. What’s your favorite animal-related memory? (a trip to a zoo? a favorite pet?)
I have always been a volunteer with the Humane Society, so lots of animal memories… My favorite though would be going to the airport to pick up my baby Umbrella Cockatoo. She is my favorite pet (don`t tell my dogs) and is very loving and cuddly bird. She loves being out of her cage and continually calls *OUT MOM OUT MOM OUT MOM* if I`m too slow. *L* kisses and cuddles, and [ I give her] either a grape or orange and she is happy
6. What are you passionate about?
My family. I have a loving husband… ask my friends or zoofriends, they hear me talk about him all the time. 3 wonderful children: I could’t have asked for 2 greater sons or my beautiful daughter. If I could have listed qualities, -they are my joy, my pride and my daughter is about to make us grandparents.
7. What makes the world go ’round?
Love makes the world go around. LOVE of family, love of friends, love of adventure, love takes you into the unknown, love brings hope and new beginnings. Love gives you life, love gives you reason.
And also Love brings new friends. DEE, CYN, BAMBII, CHRIS, CHRIS B,MICHELE, MICHELLE, Shelia, and Laura, you all have been my longest and closest friends in zoo. You all have shared with me, cried with me, vented with me, laughed with me and healed with me. Though we might never meet in real time…..Zoo World has been a wonderful place to be with you all. And with all my heart, I DO LOVE YOU!!
