Barker Donates Millions

Television personality Bob Barker donates $2.5 million to help PETA build new offices.

On Wednesday, PETA announced that retired The Price Is Right host and animal-activist Bob Barker had donated $2.5 million to aid the group in building new offices in Los Angeles, Calif. Barker, a longtime advocate of spaying and neutering companion animals, attended the press conference and ribbon cutting ceremony held on Wednesday at the Bob Barker Building on Sunset Boulevard. The new offices will house the organization's media, marketing, youth outreach, and campaign departments. PETA President Ingrid Newkirk praised Barker for his donation, saying that he could have simply bought the group a new refrigerator, and instead chose to finance a new building.
