According to the outlet, Vanderpump was involved in pushing Congress to pass the PACT Act, which makes animal torture a federal crime. In addition, she advocated for a House resolution that would urge nations to prohibit trade in dog and cat meat.

“I never thought I’d be speaking in Congress,” she said at the time. “So I really don’t know what’s around the corner.”
