The fight to stop people from eating cats and dogs is far from over. Currently, places like China do eat them but the USA is in a much stronger position now, to influence them. AsÂ ClickOnDetroit noted, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starâs efforts mean more can be done by the government. They cited the Humane Society as saying, âThe House has passed the Cat and Dog Meat Trade Prohibition Act (H.R. 6720) to keep this brutal industry from taking hold in the U.S. & strengthen our hand to press other countries to ban it.â
Followers of Lisa Vanderpump commended her for her stand on the brutalÂ practice. One even suggested Lisa should run for office. âCongratulationsâglad I was there in the audience all those many months ago when you 1st took it to Congress. You all got it done. Now would you please become a citizen & run for office? We need honorable people like youâcongrats againâcelebrate!!!â
Lisa Vanderpumpâs fans were thrilled at the passing of the bill. One noted that is was âincredibleâ what one person could do if they set their minds to it. Another said that they cried when they heard the news. Many of them congratulated Lisa, especially as sheâs busy with her restaurant, SUR, and her two reality TV shows. Others remembered that Ken is also a part of Lisaâs passions and gave him a shoutout as well.
