During his 35 years as host for the popular TV game show The Price is Right Bob Barker earned a growing reputation as an advocate for animals. When he retired from TV he didn’t retire from his passion of helping those who can’t speak for themselves Barker's work on behalf of animals has garnered him a long list of awards from prestigious humane organizations across the country.
These acts of generosity include founding the DJ&T Foundation, cutting a check for $500.000 to help Animal Defenders International relocate 30 circus lions from Peru to the United States. Barker also donated $2 million to the group in 2011 in an effort to rescue circus lions and other animals in Bolivia. (episodes 25 and 26) Mr. Barker’s generosity extends beyond the sea shore. He's donated $5 million to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for a ship (named the Bob Barker) seen in the TV program Whale Wars. In addition PETA received $2.5 million to help renovate its Los Angeles headquarters, and is now called the Bob Barker Building.
