Lisa Vanderpump works tirelessly to bring awareness to animal rights. She is set to host World Dogs Day, which will be a fun-filled event.
Fans of Vanderpump Rules know that Lisa Vanderpump is a huge animal lover and she is set to host her 6th annual World Dogs Day. Lisa Vanderpump was one of the original cast members of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and she was known for carrying around her tiny dog Giggy everywhere. When she moved into her mansion Villa Rosa, it became a small sanctuary housing swans and miniature ponies, along with her many dogs.
During Lisa’s time in Vanderpump Rules, she used her influence to bring awareness to the Yulin Dog Festival. She organized protests and parades to stop the practice of raising dogs for slaughter. Lisa eventually opened her own dog rescue organization called Vanderpump Dogs, which is a non-profit sanctuary that provides a safe haven for dogs until they find their forever homes.

As reported by TMZ, Lisa is going to host World Dog Day, which is going to take place Saturday, May 28 in West Hollywood, California. The event will raise “awareness about global dog abuse,” but will also provide fun entertainment such as “live music and a DJ, vendors with doggy treats…also a dog water park, pie eating contest and even a fashion show with dog models!” Lisa told TMZ that the event will bring joy to people amid recent tough times, such as the war in Ukraine, but Vanderpump Dogs is making an effort to focus on positive endeavors.
Lisa shared that the event will take place right behind TomTom, the bar she opened with her Vanderpump Rules co-stars Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz. Tom Sandoval was a bartender at Lisa’s restaurant SUR and is one of the main cast members of the hit show Vanderpump Rules. Tom Schwartz was his partner in crime and fans loved the duo so much that Lisa decided to offer them a small stake in her new bar that she named after them. TomTom was such a hit, that the two Toms decided to start their own business venture and open a dive bar which they named Schwartz and Sandy’s.
Lisa’s dedication to animal rights remains one of her top priorities. She prides Vanderpump Dogs on being a no-kill shelter and they make sure all their rescue dogs are microchipped in order to keep track of them. During RHOBH season 9, fellow castmate Dorit Kemsley was under fire for adopting one of their dogs only to give her away for biting her kids. Lisa was accused of throwing Dorit under the bus and ratting her out to the tabloids. Lisa left RHOBH after feeling villainized and hasn’t been on the show since. Still, Lisa has kept busy with Vanderpump Rules and her animal rights activism, while also juggling being a thriving restaurateur.
