Meet Rig Olsen, host of Destination Pets, a program that explores the joys of raising healthy pets in the Bismarck area.
A self-proclaimed “dog lover,” Rig’s two, now-grown sons always had a variety of pets in the house – furry, scaly, squawking or slithering. These family pets provided Rig with the experience and insight he brings to the show when interviewing his “guests.”
Now retired, Rig’s past jobs included business manager, news director and mortgage loan officer as well as being active with organizations such as Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited, Masons, Shriners, VFW and AMVETS.
Rig says the best part about hosting Destination Pets is meeting very knowledgeable people and experiencing some amazing pets.
