Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (RHOBH) stars Lisa Vanderpump may be doing a lot of drama on the sets, but she is always on toes to do anything for her puppies. She is also known for giving shelter to the dogs who are homeless. Vanderpump admitted that she alone can’t shoulder the onus of saving the dogs around the world, but she can run a charity to call for a protest against the barbaric dog slaughtering in China. Read below to know more in details.
Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd are all set to commence a charity. It is not only to become a podium to help dogs and puppies in need. Also, it will protest against the slaughtering of a mammoth number of innocent dogs for China’s Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
According to PerezHilton.com, Vanderpump became emotional after seeing a protest video about the barbaric Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China. A huge number (an estimated 10-15,000 dogs) are killed for the preparation of delicious cuisines during the 10-day festival that happen every year in China. Some reports also claimed that pets are even kidnapped by the slaughters from their owners for their meat.
“I cannot sleep at night knowing we are condoning this. And we are condoning it if we don’t actively fight against it. They beat these poor animals and sever their limbs and inject adrenaline to get more tender meat. It’s only been going on for a few years so it’s not this ancient tradition we have to put up with. And we shouldn’t,” Vanderpump said.
Todd also cleared that they are not asking for any financial support to strengthen the platform. They want to spread the message to the common people so that their protest can stop the barbaric Yulin festival and brutally killing of pets. The couple also invited everyone to join their peaceful march on World Animal Day on Oct. 4, 2015.
Monday was just a business day for the RHOBH stars Vanderpump and Kyle Richards as both the friends had lunch at Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills. The 54-year old Vanderpump toted her tiny pub Giggy while she was out with Richards after the completion of filming the scenes for RHOBH.
