Bob Barker, ‘Come On Down!’ to PETA’s Los Angeles Office

Written by PETA | March 10, 2010

PETA’s longtime friend and supporter, Bob Barker, along with some “Barker PETA Beauties,” joined our own Ingrid E. Newkirk today to cut the ribbon on the start of renovations to our new Los Angeles office, aptly named—what else?—the Bob Barker Building.

Bob Barker donated $2.5 million to help us open our new location, and time after time after time, he has shown his unwavering support for animal protection. For decades, he influenced millions of people every day by ending each taping of The Price Is Right with his message to spay or neuter companion animals—a message that his successor, Drew Carey, also uses for his sign-off.

We’re grateful to have Barker’s continued support—and we’re delighted to name PETA’s new Los Angeles office in his honor.

    What a wonderful man you are Mr. Barker. The money you have given to animalactivist groups will help them achieve freedom and the end of cruelty and death for many animals. Keep it up. We are behind you l000 per cent.

  • Patricia Moran says:

    Absolutely brilliant donation! How generous is that? I live in Ireland and support Peta in every way I can. I work with our local Animal Welfare and their new Sanctuary hopefully somebody will help us out financially every little bit helps.

  • Michelle says:

    Many animals and I thank you! I loved hearing your signoff on the Price is Right and am very happy to see Drew Carry continued in your footsteps. I can’t wait to go a visit their new office. I now live in Las Vegas but I will be making the trip to LA. I also want to thank Peta for opening my eyes to the pain animals have to endure for us. I am now a vegetarian and in the process of becoming a Vegan. The only reason I have ever wanted to be rich and famous is to help bring awareness to the pain and suffering of all animals around the world. Not to live in a huge house with endless shopping but to have a large farm where animals in need have a safe place to call home. Again thank you Mr. Barker

  • Lou says:

    First of all Thank you Bob Barker! I always wondered why more folks didn’t listen to the man spay neuter your pets! I’m psyched about this new office. Who are those buxom ladies though? And thank you Aimee for your heads up about PetCo. I am so sorry you went through that and the animals. How heartbreaking and disgusting. I for one don’t go there or PetSmart. I buy supplies for my cats at a shop that actually rescues cats. They have a beautiful run for them in their shop. And they sell very healthy pet food.

  • Rad_Rosa89 says:

    Can Bob Barker get any cutier?! Ah I can’t wait until I move back to California I will surely visit this office!

  • equinoxa says:

    i love Bob Barker and have ever since I was a kid growing up watching the price is right. Then i became veg when i was 12 about 16 years ago. I found out he has been the same since the 70s made me love him even more. I wish more people on tv would care too at least he told to control the pet population. Nobody in his day when he started was doing that. Thankyou Bob!!

  • John says:

    Bob Barker is doing wonderful things for animals!! It breaks my heart that Leona Helmsley left her estate to help dogs but the judges and trustees changed her will and are spending her money on their personal interests. If only Leona had donated while she was alive to see the good work her money could do for animals! People should know that the courts can and do change your will no matter how ironclad you think your will is. Give money to animal charities while you are alive or get annuities with groups like Peta that are a charitable donation AND give you an income. Put insurance policies deeds etc in the name of animal charities so they don’t go through probate where the courts can take your money away from the charities!

  • Chuck says:

    BOBBY B!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Francine Hauenstein says:

    I wanted to warn people about Petco. I worked there for 8 years and we took very good care of our animals. Then I moved to another store site and the new maanger won’t take animals to the vet. I would write a note to him and let him know that a certain animal needed to go to the vet asap and I would come back to work 2 days later and find out that the animal never went to the vet and died. We other employees and I would get in trouble for asking to take the animals to the vet. The manager would say who cares they are just animals. He would just let them die. I was the operations maanger in charge of animal careand had a discussion with my district manager and expressed with tears my concern for the animals that were sold to the wrong people and we were not taking care of the sick animals this was very upsetting to me. Funny thing I was fired 2 weeks later for some stupid reason. I love animals and I know they have feelings and souls. I have carried animals in my arms while they were dying to comfort them. I think Petco should be put out of business of selling animals they don’t care about the health or the families they go to. I have sold guinea pigs that are perfectly healthy and come back 2 days later with broken backs and was told to give them another animal this is wrong and something should be done about this. I know of managers that have had sick mice or rats and instead of taking them to the vet and getting in trouble for the cost they take them in the back and hit them in the head and kill them. They also carry salt water fish and expect people that don’t know anything about their care to keep them alive and at least 75 end up dying they are beautiful creatures and should be left alone in the ocean to live their lives. Thank god they stopped selling birds except for parakeets I had to take many baby birds home and feed them and care for them so they would not die Any commets please contact me at my email address http://www.francinehauensteinyahoo.coom
