It was a day all about the doggies at the dazzling 5th Annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala, which took place on May 18 at The Maybourne Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Whether it’s hosting a lovely day at the park during their World Dog Day event or a spectacular evening during their annual gala, Lisa Vanderpump and her Vanderpump Dog Foundation always host the most inspiring events furthering their mission to rescue and rehabilitate dogs both domestically and internationally. This year’s Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala was an extra special and highly-awaited one as it marked the first gala since COVID.

The remarkable, multi-hyphenate Lisa Vanderpump doesn’t just talk the talk, she works tirelessly to help our beloved, four-legged friends find forever homes. Vanderpump and her Vanderpump Dog Foundation have and continue to make many efforts to help save dogs all over the world—from their Vanderpump Dog Rescue Center in West Hollywood, to their recent initiatives including the Emergency Medical Fund, the Vanderpump Nursery and their Vanderpump Veterans Program. Lisa Vanderpump also shared an update at the gala on a second Vanderpump Dog Foundation shelter in China that houses hundreds of dogs saved from the dog meat trade. Through her foundation, the ravishing Lisa Vanderpump has helped over 2,500 dogs get adopted into loving families.

The exceptional night continued with a breathtakingly beautiful performance from consummate actress and unrivaled performer, Kristin Chenoweth. The Tony & Emmy Award winner left everyone speechless as she performed not just one, but three, fantastic songs at the Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala.

The incredibly talented violinist, Lindsey Stirling, also gave a magnificent performance at the event. Trixie Mattel had a sensational time taking on the stage for a memorable performance.

The gala truly was back and better than ever; and although the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t make it easy, nothing could stop the Vanderpump Dog Foundation from the great impact it continues to make on the lives of thousands of doggos.

The one and only Lisa Vanderpump is one to admire. She’s a restaurant mogul, a reality TV queen, a stupendous mom and a wonderful grandma.
