Lisa Vanderpump’s Dog Rescue Foundation was sued by a woman who claims she contracted parasitic worms from a dog she adopted from the business.
Plaintiff Kimberly Dillon on Monday filed a lawsuit against the reality star’s Vanderpump Dog Foundation and Vanderpump Dogs for negligence, express warranty breach, implied warranty breach, willful misrepresentation, fraud and negligent misrepresentation.
According to Fox News legal documents, the plaintiff claims she went to Vanderpump Dogs in July 2019, where she met a Daschund puppy named Cassie. The puppy had not yet received deworming treatment at the time, but staff advised Dillon, “It was perfectly safe to hold and interact with Cassie,” according to the plaintiff.
A day later, Dillon’s application for adoption for Cassie was approved and she went into the facility and made a payment of $ 680.

Dillon claims that that day she asked the Vanderpump Dogs staff about Cassie’s health and was informed that the dog was “in good health” and that all necessary treatments and shots had been taken.
Dillon then claims that she was presented with “a false vaccination card for Cassie and a false certificate that Cassie was dewormed”.
Only days later, the plaintiff made “the disturbing discovery that Cassie was throwing out large live worms when defecating.” Calls and texts to Vanderpump Dogs went unanswered until the next day, claims Dillon. Then she took the dog to a veterinary clinic, where Cassie was being treated for “a serious worm infection,” doctors say.

The plaintiff herself claims that she too became ill and began “removing live worms and eggs from her mouth, vagina and anus”.
The plaintiff claims she was diagnosed with intestinal parasites.

“In addition to her serious injuries, the applicant was completely traumatized and continues to experience severe emotional distress, shock, disgust and nightmares.”
Dillon claims that Vanderpump Dogs did not treat Cassie properly and that is why she and the dog got sick. Dillon also claims she was a victim of “apparently false information about Cassie’s actual health.”
