With the Yulin Dog Meat Festival currently underway, more and more stars are speaking out against the centuries-old event in which dogs are slaughtered for food in the Guangxi province of China. Among those most vocal about the event is The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills animal rights activist Lisa Vanderpump. She appeared on Nightline this week to speak out about the festival, hoping that by shining a light on the pratices, change will eventually come.

"Just barbaric, that is the word: barbaric. Henious," Lisa said on Nightline. "You can never erase those images from your mind once you've seen them. I think we should put pressure on China to stop it. There's a lot of Chinese activist and my partner, John [Sessa], who's on the ground there has interacted with them."

Last weekend, Lisa teamed up with British singer Leona Lewis and award-winning songwriter Diane Warren to release the track, "(We Are All) Looking for Home," to help raise funds for her Stop Yulin Forever efforts. And she's speaking out as much as possible about Yulin in hopes that it leads to some big changes. "I'm here living in Beverly Hills, there are people that are immersed in this everyday fighting against it and the only way to implement change is by making noise and that's what we're doing," she told Nightline.
