The Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet has become a Super Bowl Sunday tradition. The adorable special features pups frolicking on a mini-football field, having a mock football game. All pups playing in the Puppy Bowl are available for adoption. This year, one of the puppies is from Lisa Vanderpump‘s rescue, Vanderpump Dogs.
The 15th annual Puppy Bowl featured 93 puppies from 51 shelters in the U.S., Costa Rica and Puerto Rico, according to USA Today. Joining the group this year are three “special needs” puppies. This includes Bumble, a hearing-impaired Lab-Chow Chow mix, and Will, a three-legged Old English Sheepdog.
Vanderpump proudly tweeted during the event about the puppy from her rescue. So which pup was featured from Vanderpump Dogs?
Say ‘hello’ to Violet
Vanderpump did some live tweeting during the Puppy Bowl to support the puppy from her rescue. She tweeted, “Go Violet!!!!! Our very own #Vanderpup, Violet Vanderpump, is in today’s #PuppyBowl !!! From a @VanderpumpDogs rescue to a Star! Did you see her in this week’s @People Magazine? Make sure to tune in today to the #PuppyBowl on
Violet Vanderpump is a four-month-old Dachshund Chihuahua mix who was featured during the event. Vanderpump Dogs even included a link to the Puppy Bowl on its Instagram page so everyone could watch and enjoy.
A few Twitter followers shared pics of their own dogs on Vanderpump’s threads and made comments. “Go violet. You are beautiful and talented just like your momma #LisaVanderpump I love you
This is how Vanderpump’s rescue started
As a huge animal lover, Vanderpump launched Vanderpump Dogs in response to the brutality of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China. Vanderpump has been effective in combating this cruel and unthinkable practice for several years.
She started Vanderpump Dog Foundation in 2016 and provides a number of services to the community. In addition to advocacy, Vanderpump Dogs is a rescue and adoption center. The adoption center is unlike any dog rescue around. “Designed by Lisa Vanderpump, our beautiful 6,000 square foot Rescue Center is open to the public and a hub for all things dogs! We’ve given the cold steel cages of shelters a makeover and added the signature ‘Vanderpump’ twist.”
Additionally, dog owners can bring their pups to the rescue center for grooming. According to the organization’s website, 100% of proceeds from services go directly to the rescue.
