Bob Barker Donates $2.5 Million To PETA

| Filed under: Inspiration

wenn1388905.jpg

Wowsa!

The former host of Price Is Right, Bob Barker has donated $2.5 million to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

All the $$$$$ went to the Bob Barker Building, which will open its doors on Wednesday on the corner of Sunset and Alvarado in El Lay. It will serve as home to the group's media, marketing, youth outreach and campaign departments.

Barker preached about the importance of spaying and neutering pets for 25 years on TV, but since his retirement, he's hit the road promoting freedom for whales and working to end the fur trade along with other important causes.

PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said that Bob could have just given the organization a refrigerator, but was thrilled that he donated enough for an entire building to be restored.

So generous!

    THANKS FOR FLUSHING YOUR 2.5 MILL DOWN THE SHITTER YOU STUPID OLD BASTARD. THAT MONEY SHOULD HAVE GONE TO THE ASPCA AND NOT PETA YOU SENILE PRICK, YOU JUST SUPPORTED HOMELAND TERRORISM VIA CHECKBOOK.



  2. 2

    fuck him.



  3. 3

    Good for him! Although I would have rather seen it go to a Humane Society, as this money will probably be wasted on some stupid ass PETA campaign.



  4. 4

    Yeah..for Bob Barker! Great job!



  5. 5

    very nice!!



  6. 6

    Seriously? I like Bob but PETA??? That group should be in a looney bin! They take things WAY to far! He could have done sooo much better then encourage a group who throws red paint on ppl. ugggggggg

    Re: DANNYGLOVERSDICKBLOOD – Explain how donating money to PETA provides aide to Homeland Terrorism? Missed the connection there.



  8. 8

    Good one, Bob — first Drew Carrey, now this — you're definitely, totally senile. PETA??? Ew.

  9. Jai says – reply to this

    Good for Bob, he genuinely cares for animals.



  10. 10

    PETA KILLS ANIMALS!!!!!!!!!! Don't believe me! Type it in GOOGLE! "PETA KILLS"



  11. 11

    And I wasn't supporting PETA btw, I was just confused with what you said. I do think PETA does some crazy shit, and takes many issues way to far! I just was confused by the whole supporting terrorism aspect?



  12. 12

    Ingrid Newkirk is a cvnt of the highest degree.



  13. 13

    2.5 million and all PETA wants to do is restore a fucking building? Like what, update to fancy new lighting fixtures? WTF! how many pets could be saved with that instead?



  14. 14

    FUCK PETA. Unlike PETA, there are so many PRODUCTIVE animal and conservation charities out there who aren't running around being extremist, hypocritical, crazy fuckers like PETA. The money will probably go to directly funding some idiotic "shock" ad which no one will fucking care about and will change absolutely NOTHING. What a fucking waste. PETA does way more harm than good. I hate those ignorant motherfuckers.



  15. 15

    PETA has not saved one animal from death, BTW…ANIMALS DON'T USE MONEY!



  16. 16

    PEREZ STOP REPORTING ON PETA, I LOVE ALL YOUR OTHER ARTICLES EXCEPT FUCKEN PETA, I REALLY HOPE TO GOD THEIR PAYING U OR SOMETHING BECAUSE I DONT KNOW WHY YOU WOULD LIKE THEM ALL OF SUDDEN…THEIR PSYCHOTIC, THE MONEY WENT TO NOTHING GOOD THOSE 2 MILLION DOLLARS COULD HAVE ACTUALLY HELPED ANIMALS NOT JUST MAKE MORE CAMPAING ADDS…PUTTING PEOPLE FIRST!!!….people eating tasty animals!!!!…

    oh really and getting money well get save animals that are like almost dead already



  19. 19

    Well at least PETA arises awareness on issues that any other animal rights/protection organization brings to the mass knowledge in the same level that PETA does. Not even Greenpeace (I'm talking about right now). So at least give them that, and education and awareness is one of the keys to change things for better.



  20. 20

    Go Bob! I think it's great.



  21. 21

    Re: SammiDe – i actually read something this morning about them having some higher than normal rate of euthanization and they gave some b.s. reason why.

    they are sort of outta control with their scare tactics. bullies.



  22. 22

    haha has anyone seen that south park when they make fun of PETA. ha fuck



  23. 23

    Re: A&Cmomma – yup in 2009 do you know how many dogs and cats total they adopted out 8! YOU DON'T EVEN WANNA KNOW THE NUMBER KILLED like I said put PETA KILLS in your browser its a website called that! IT HAS ALL THE PROOF! STATE RECORDS AND EVERYTHING! THEY ARE NOT COOL, NOT ONE BIT!



  24. 24

    Go Bob.

    Peta has done more for animals than the media portrays because who runs the media?! My point exactly.

  26. 26

    He donated to a orginization that only gave 7 animals home in 2008 and killed over 2 thousand animals? Ya sure! They all about money and fame.



  27. 27

    If he wanted to help animals, he could have donated to no kill shelters and animal rehabilitation centers. He just flushed that money down the toilet. How does restoring a building actively help animals? The PETA people sit in their nice offices while bears are tortured in bile farms in China. Sickening.



  28. 28

    too bad he is blinded by most of america about PETA they are the largest animal killers in the USA. This is a documented stat.
    PETA Killed 97 Percent of Adoptable Pets in its Care During 2009
    Hypocritical Animal Rights Group’s 2009 Disclosures Bring Pet Death Toll To 23,640

    Washington, DC — Today the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) published documents online showing that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 97 percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2009. Despite years of public outrage over its euthanasia program, the notorious animal rights group has actually increased the number of adoptable animals it kills at its Norfolk, VA headquarters, to an average of 44 pets every week.

    According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,301 cats and dogs last year while only placing eight in adoptive homes. That means PETA found a home for only 1 out of every 300 animals at its headquarters. Since 1998, a total of 23,640 pets have died at the hands of PETA workers.

    "PETA hasn’t slowed down its hypocritical killing machine one bit, but it keeps browbeating the rest of society with a phony ‘animal rights’ message," said David Martosko, CCF’s Director of Research. "PETA is more concerned about funding its advertising and media antics than finding homes for the dogs

    Disgusting old pervert. Maybe that will ease his guilt over sexually harassing all those young girls that worked with him over the years.



  30. 30

    I heard he made tons for money by manufacturing inmate uniform in California City Correction Center



  31. 31

    why are people spending so much money on frickin animals?

    WHAT ABOUT HUMANS?



  32. 32

    Go, Bob! That is AWESOME. What a generous man he is for making a difference in the lives of so many animals. His donation is so selfless, noble and inspiring.



  33. 33

    what a cool dude!!



  34. 34

    Re: DANNYGLOVERSDICKBLOOD

    shut up asshole.



  35. 35

    Great job, Bobby B. We'll do our best to make sure that money's well spent (and you know it is).



  36. 36

    Since Bob Barker gives money to save whales, did you ever get a portion of that cash Perez?



  37. 37

    Well done! But Humane Society or ASPCA might be better opts.



  38. 38

    I've always loved Bob for caring so much about animals. However, I'm sad he didn't donate to ASPCA or HSUS instead.

    Despite its $33 million annual budget, PETA does not operate an adoption shelter. PETA employees make no discernible effort to find homes for the thousands of animals they kill every year.

    Thank you, Mr. Barker. I have been independently rescuing animals for 30 years. I know the facts, numbers and reality. PETA is a lifesaver and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.



  41. 41

    How about donating that money to abused children or missing children rather then PETA who rather see humans die then animals!!!



  42. 42

    Just goes to show that even rich people have no common sense. No same person would donate money to the domestic terrorist organization PETA!



  43. 43

    Glad Bob is doing good things while retired. It'll certainly be interesting to have more PETA in the city.

    Re: hcoboy – I think yo hatin keeps makin us appreciAtin peta! Thank you! Thank Peta! :)

    NO YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP SHITHEAD BEFORE I CRAWL THROUGH THIS INTERNET CONNECTION AND PUNCH THE FLAVOR OF YOUR FATHERS SEMEN OUT OF YOUR FUCKING MOUTH DIPSHIT. I AM RIGHT, YOU ARE WRONG, DEAL WITH IT.



  47. 47

    WTG Bob Barker is now my favourite celebrity. Peta does amazing work and he is awesome for donating to them. I



  48. 48

    Go Bob!!!! It's so classy when a man donates to a good cause, especially to a group I



  49. 49

    Brilliant. 2.5mill to kill even more ADOPTABLE animals.

    sigh. I wish these braindead celebs would do some research on PETA, and there REAL intentions - the end of animal ownership. Not to mention anti finding a cure for aids, seeing eye and service dogs, staging animal cruelty to get that 'photo' etc etc etc.

    makes me sick to my stomach.

    ANIMAL WELFARE people, animal welfare, tehy are the ones that need money and do good with it.



  50. 50

    Re: #Cejers – why? because PETA uses the money donated to them to bail out arsonists. PETA are a terrorist and violent organisation who do not care for animals, they just hate people.



  51. 51

    Aw .. Bob Barker is amazing AND generous. He's got a long track record of fighting for animals' rights. As for all you Barker and PETA haters .. dang, y'all sure do sound defensive. Is it b/c you know that animals raised on factory farms suffer horribly just so you can shove them down your throat? Hugs 2 U, Bob! :)



  52. 52

    I have adored Bob Barker since I watched him on TPIR as a little girl and now I have even more reason to love him. Most people as successful as he is would spend their retirement bathing themselves in luxuries and forgetting about the world's problems. But Bob chooses to use his life to make a difference for the most helpless and most abused creatures on the planet. We should all be so generous and compassionate.



  53. 53

    What a wonderful donation. I look forward to seeing all of the great strides PETA will make for animals as a result. Bob should be commended for his compassion and generosity.



  54. 54

    Way to go, Bob! PETA is a wonderful organization that helps to save millions of animals every year. And to the haters out there, sorry: You're gonna have to learn to google. PETA has nothing against responsible guardians having companion animals. And the animals they "kill" are the animals no one wants — the sick and injured ones who would end up in shelters, languishing and lonely until they're gassed to death. If you really want to help animals, take them off your plate. GO BOB!



  55. 55

    I couldn't have said it better danny below! I really wish people would get educated about the charities they give money to. Especially celebrities! PETA is a terrorist organization with a political agenda. Most donations go directly to marketing while they kill the majority of the animals that enter their facilities. PERIOD. This money could have helped save countless animals lives if donated to the ASPCA, who actually work tirelessly to offer free and low-cost spay/neutering programs. So sad he would donate his money so irresponsibly.



  56. 56

    What a wonderful man! So many of the rich/famous/both do NOTHING good with what they have achieved or been given; he is a shining example of using both wealth and celebrity for good. The fact that, in addition, so many ignorant people bash PETA (because they are too narrow-minded to inform themselves and too selfish to change), makes his Standing Up all the more laudable. Bless you, Bob Barker!



  57. 57

    Re: SammiDe – Sure they do. You want them all? All the millions "euthanized" in shelters in this country each year because people are too selfish and cheap to fix their pets?? Seriously, where do you expect them tp put the unwanted animals? I worked in a shelter for a decade and if there was no euthanasia, people would just TIE THEIR ANIMALS TO THE GATE in 100 degree heat, and leave. SOmetime, mandatory spay-neuter may make the numbes more manageable, but for now, death IS still better than starving on a country road, getting hit by a car, or spending your life in a shelter cage.



  58. 58

    I'd bet few of the people who made derogatory comments have a passion to do good - much less give such huge sums of money to support it. Bravo for Bob Barker's generousity to help end suffering.



  59. 59

    This is amazing news! Wow. Bob Barker is so generous. It is so nice to see someone using their celebrity and their money to make a positive impact on the world. So rare, I feel. Big hugs to Bob, and I know he made the right choice with PETA. They'll use it well. So excited for them to be in Hollywood!!



  60. 60

    Awesome!!!!



  61. 61

    Thanks to Bob Barker and anyone else who wants to speak out for animals. PETA just rescued 26,000 animals from deplorable conditions at US Global Exotics and placed them in sanctuaries and reputable zoos. Th



  62. 62

    Oops - hit send. Good job, Bob. PETA spends its money on community efforts such as doghouse and straw delivery and low-cost spay/neuter clinics. They also educate the public on the importance of ending the overpopulation crisis as well as get people to stop supporting factory farming by going vegan. PETA humanely euthanizes animals that are in pain, have been neglected, or would otherwise be put down by being shot by owners who can't afford to take their animals the vet to put them out of their misery - they send out adoptable animals to local shelters. Please get your facts straight, and try to check out more reputable sources than sites funded by the meat and tobacco industries.



  63. 63

    LOVE Bob! Way to donate your money to cause that you care about! Spay and neuter those pets!



  64. 64

    LOVE ME SOME BOB…DREW CAREY SUCKS ASS! BUT PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN IT TO A CAUSE THAT ACTUALLY PROMOTES SPAY AND NEUTERING, NOT THROWING BLOOD ON PEOPLE! I HOPE THEY USE IT WISELY.



  65. 65

    DID FOX NEWS TELL YOU GUYS THAT PETA ARE TERRORIST? BECAUSE I KNOW NONE OF YOU MORONS ACTUALLY TOOK THE TIME TO DO THE RESEARCH TO FIGURE OUT IF ITS REAL. NOOO, THAT WOULD BE TOO HARD, YOU JUST BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ OR SEE ON FAUX NEWS AND THEN RUN WITH IT. STUPID SHEEP!



  66. 66

    AND BTW, BOB GIVE TO MANY MANY MANY ANIMAL CHARITIES, INCLUDING NO KILL SHELTERS, THE HUMANE SOCIETY AND MANY OTHERS…LOOK IT UP…BEFORE YOU SPOUT OFF AND TALK SHIT ABOUT SOMETHING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. ALL OF YOU JUST LIKE TO HATE HATE HATE. AT LEAST BUT YOUR ENERGY INTO HATING THE RIGHT PEOPLE…LIKE MARIO AKA PEREZ!



  67. 67

    What a moron



  68. 68

    Re: Aleyrac – YES BUT YOU DO NOT KILL ALL AND ONLY ADOPT 8 IN 2009! THAT IS NOT COOL!



  69. 69

    I LOVE BOB BARKER & I LOVE PETA> BOTH ARE TRUE GENUINE AND REALLY CARE FOR ANIMALS. PETA ROCKS!!!!!!!!



  70. 70

    Thank you so much, Mr Barker. You really understand the world we are in. You have made a better world for those who deserve it. I wish there were many people like you.
    Again, thanks!



  71. 71

    PeTA has REALLY gotten their junkies to comment. Check it out: They ARE on the U.S. Terrorist list; ALL their income goes to less than a dozen people; SOME of their "work" is quasi-valid (we really DON'T need fur coats; farm animals DO need better lives; very FEW dogs and cats shouldn't be spayed) … BUT, they want to eliminate ALL breeding of ALL animals and no one should "enslave" their pets (what a crock!), no Guide Dogs for the Blind; no service dogs; NO puppies OR kittens … EVER? I have been APPALLED that so many celebrities are sucked in by PeTA and do NOT take the time to Google their REAL mission: Annihilation of pets and lining their own personal pockets with outrageous amounts of $$$. INVESTIGATE PeTA's own words. PEREZ, you dummy … LEARN WHO THEY ARE? Spay & Neuter? Fine. True rescue organizations? Huzzah! USHS is almost as bad! Quit buying pets from PET STORES!!!



  72. 72

    Re: Animal Lover AND Expert – OOOPS! HSUS is what I meant.
