Sunday marked the second annual World Dog Day, and adorable puppers (and Bravolebs) came out in spades to participate. The event—which was founded by Lisa Vanderpump’s non-profit Vanderpump Dog Foundation—not only celebrates our beloved canine friends, but also advocates for dogs in need across the globe.
After the disheartening news that dog meat sales would not be banned at this year’s Yulin Festival, it felt more important than ever to raise awareness for the humane treatment of dogs worldwide. Fortunately, the event was a rousing success, and all proceeds benefitted the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, which supports Stop Yulin Forever (in addition to domestic dog interests).
Festivities included a pet psychic, a doggie waterpark, a doggie fun zone, a doggie carnival, grooming services, a mobile vet, food and drink (for pooches and humans alike), and the first annual Vanderpump Dogs Puppy Pageant. The big winner? Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor's pup, Monroe!
Congratulations to Lisa on such a successful event that supports such an important cause.
