The Price Is Right And So Is His Cause.

6 Feb

Bob Barker has spent the last 32 plus years crusading for the rights of animals all over the world. A vegetarian since 1979, Mr. Barker got into the world of animal rights via his wife. After she passed away in 1979 he made it his mission to keep her passion for helping animals alive, this was also the year he created his sign off line telling views to ‘Help Control The Pet Population, Have Your Pets Spayed Or Neutered’. Imagine if everyone who ever watched the Price Is Right actually did that? I have a feeling our stray and feral animal population would be significantly lower ๐Ÿ˜‰ Through out his duration on The Price Is Right, Bob never gave away any trips or gifts that had to do with animals. No fur coats, no cars with leather seats and no trips to zoo’s or other places like them. Through out the years Bob has stood his ground when it comes to animal rights, he was once a judge for the Ms. USA/Universe pageants for 20 years but left in 1987 after the pageant denied his request to get rid of the fur coats.

Since he retired from television Mr. Barker has continued to make remarkable strides in the world of animal rights. He has donated 2.5 million dollars to PETA so they can open a new office in Los Angles. Another million to Columbia University Law School to help aid in their ‘Animal Rights Law’ and animal rights studies. But the coolest thing Bob has done with his money is donate 5 million to the Sea Shepard Conservation Society in turn allowing them to buy a huge boat, which they named the MY BOB BARKER. This massive ice vessel is out at sea stopping Japanese Whalers from getting back to port and from getting to the whales period. Bob Barker truly puts his money where is mouth is, he talks the talk and walks the walk, I am sure animals all over the world are happy to have a guy like him on their side.

I must say that The Price Is Right is not the same without Bob but I understand all good things come to an end. With that end brought a whole new beginning for Bob and his animal rights missions. I look forward to hearing more about the great things the MY BOB BARKER is accomplishing and I am excited to know that PETA will have a new office to help promote their agenda from. Bob Barker truly is the gift that keeps giving ๐Ÿ™‚
