Lisa Vanderpump and Joanna Krupa Show Their Puppy Love at Hero Dog Awards Kick-Off (PHOTOS)

Lisa Vanderpump and Joanna Krupa may claw their way through catfights on their respective Bravo series, but off camera it’s all about the dogs!

The Real Housewives showed their appreciation for their furry friends at the American Humane Association’s Hero Dog Awards kick-off reception held at Lisa’s SUR Lounge. The ladies looked lovely as they posed for photos inside the event, both with humans and the canine guests of honor.

The Hero Dog Awards were created in 2010 to celebrate the powerful relationship between people and their dogs. The awards kick off with a national search for the greatest dogs in America — those that have lent sight to a human companion, saved lives on the battlefield, or provided therapeutic support to children suffering from cancer. The heroic hounds can be nominated in one of eight categories: Law Enforcement, Arson, Service, Therapy, Military, Guide & Hearing, Search & Rescue, and Emerging Hero Dogs.

Eight finalists are selected by the public and a panel of celebrity judges. Though one pooch will eventually be named the top dog (pun intended), every finalist will be presented with $1,500 for a charity partner.
