Rion was born on a small farm in Murtaugh, Idaho. At the age of 9, he moved to Casper and has resided there ever since. Rion has never been without an animal companion, growing up around numerous dogs, farm animals, and whatever creatures he could capture outside.
He spends most of his time hiking and exploring the outdoors with his fiancé Andy, and their three dogs Finley, Pumpkin, and Tofu. When not exploring, Rion loves to take pictures, draw, and nerd out with his friends. He joined the Sunrise Pet Lodge team in August of 2019 and his love for animals has grown immensely.
