Our pets are way more than just “pets.” They are our best-friends, our therapists and a big part of our lives. That’s why we absolutely adore wonderful organizations like the Vanderpump Dogs, a charity organization founded by the one and only Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd which makes great efforts to help get amazing pups adopted and help put an end to the barbaric treatment of dogs in the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Lisa Vanderpump, Ken Todd and the Vanderpump Dogs organization work hard to bring dogs the loving and caring homes that they deserve. From a luxurious Vanderpump Dogs rescue center to an eye-opening documentary titled, The Road To Yulin… And Beyond, which brings awareness to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, the Vanderpump Dogs organization has and continues to make a big impact in the lives of so many dogs and dog owners.
On May 19, 2018, the Vanderpump Dogs organization hosted its 3rd annual World Dog Day event at the West Hollywood Park in West Hollywood, California. It was a brilliant day for all dog owners who were able to bring their super cute dogs along with them to meet other pups and enjoy fun activations throughout the day. Attendees were able to visit the Vanderpump Dogs stand and check out stylish dog carriers, accessories and toys for their loved one. The Lucy Pet Foundation also offered opportunities for dogs to catch some waves and try out surfing.. yes, you read that right… SURFING!! There was also a fantastic fashion show and “look-a-like” contest that took place. Vanderpump Rules‘ Brittany Cartwright won the contest with her little mini-me in a matching pajama set — it doesn’t get any cuter than that!
Needless to say, the Vanderpump Dogs’ World Dog Day had an endless amount of excitement and wonderful opportunities for dogs and their owners to have the time of their lives. The event was also filled with some exceptional, musical entertainment as well as a magnificent, dog agility park show. The remarkable Lisa Vanderpump also took the stage for a special and touching speech. Lisa Vanderpump is truly admirable and such an inspiring and influential figure. She goes above and beyond to save the lives of so many pups and encourage everyone one of the most important things – adopt, don’t shop. With tons of vendors, food trucks and a lovely day in a Los Angeles park with your doggo, it truly was a splendid and unforgettable day at the World Dog Day event all for a great cause.
Celebrities in attendance at the event included Lisa Vanderpump, Ken Todd, Lance Bass and Michael Turchin, Leona Lewis, Dr. John Sessa, Camille Grammer, Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, Stassi Schroeder, Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney, as well as Teddi Jo Mellencamp, Reggie Benjamin and Iwona Benjamin and many others.
The Vanderpump Dogs organization once again put together a stellar and superb event. It’s a phenomenal event that puts a big smile on everyone’s face – from dogs to human beings.
