Lisa Vanderpump Celebrates The Yulin Dog Meat Trade Ban

RHOBH star Lisa Vanderpupmp’s fight to put an end to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival has just made major progress and we are so proud of the difference she is making in the world.

The Yulin government is set to prohibit restaurants, street vendors, and market traders from selling dog meat at the annual event, animal activists Duo Duo Project and Humane Society International announced Wednesday.

The temporary ban will go into effect on June 15th, one week before the festival, where thousands of dogs are killed for their meat in China’s Guangxi province, is scheduled to begin on June 21st. It is said that the ban “will be strictly enforced with fines of up to 100,000 yuan,” which is about $14,500, and the “risk of arrest for violations.”

“If it’s true [that] we’ve been instrumental [in] stopping this barbarity then we’re thrilled,” Lisa told DailyMail.com after hearing the news of the temporary ban, adding that the fight is “not over yet,” but “it’s a huge step in the right direction.”

Lisa continued, “I think they have felt the pressure from the West and certainly with the help of Bravo and Evolution Media in showcasing our marches and our gala, all the press they have helped us garner has been instrumental in this fight and in spreading the word all over the world.”

Lisa’s initial response to the news was incredibly emotional. “I actually cried for 10 minutes, I just sat there,” she shared.

Congrats to Lisa and her husband Ken Todd for all of their efforts towards this project.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
