Lisa Vanderpump And Husband Ken Todd Open Dog Rescue Center In Los Angeles — See Pics Here!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd opened the Vanderpump Dogs dog rescue center in Los Angeles this past Thursday. In addition to adorable pups, it also offers merchandise, dog food and treats and grooming services—you can get your dog "Vanderpuffed." It also serves as a space for dog lovers to hang out—and enjoy a cup of tea and Wi-Fi.

"Ken and I have been fighting for the kind of more humane treatment of dogs worldwide," Vanderpump told E! News. "One of pieces of the jigsaw puzzle was really to open a rescue center but we wanted to open a rescue center that wasn't, like, depressing and I know it's like nothing else you've ever seen."



Some of the dogs offered for adoption came from a kill shelter, Vanderpump said.

"To go into some of the kill shelters, it can be very difficult and it can be very heart-wrenching and trust me, we know that more than anybody," she said. "But with this space, we want it to have a...feel-good factor about it. All dogs are equal. It doesn't mater whether they're pedigree...so many of these dogs are just waiting for homes."

"We wanted somewhere where people that united in their love for dogs could come and hang out," she said. "And you can buy doggie treats here, you can buy dog food, dog clothes, but also we will always have puppies and dogs that are available to rescue."

Vanderpump said the rescue center was "also something for the community."

"So people can come in, they get on their wifi, they can have a cup of tea and they can buy some dog food or have their dogs groomed," she said. "It's just a little kind of puppy lifestyle palace."

Many celebrities were in attendance to show their support to Lisa and Ken, including comedian Heather McDonald, Lance Bass, Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos, former RHOBH star Joyce Giraud and the Vanderpump Rules crew. See photos below!











According to Lisa, four dogs had already been adopted after only being open one day. “The dogs will find us—and then people will find the dogs,” she told The Daily Dish.




Prior to opening the center, Vanderpump and her husband co-founded the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, which helps rescue and provide medical treatment for abandoned dogs all over the world.

Vanderpump and her husband have several dogs of their own—including her most popular one, Giggy, a Pomeranian. Last year, she rescued a new dog, Prince Harry.
