The renowned game show host and animal rights activist Bob Barker passed away on Sunday at the age of 96. The 35 years that Barker spent hosting “The Price Is Right” helped to establish him as one of the most recognisable faces on television. Additionally, he was a steadfast supporter of animal rights, as evidenced by his motto, “Help regulate the pet population. Have your dogs spayed or neutered,” became the movement’s catchphrase.

In 1923, Barker was born in Darrington, Washington. In the 1940s, he started out as a radio announcer, and in the 1950s, he switched to television. Before being hired as the host of “The Price Is Right” in 1972, he presented a number of shows, including “Truth or Consequences” and “The New Price Is Right.”

Barker’s time on “The Price Is Right” was distinguished by his wry humour and his sincere affection for the competitors. He was also renowned for his dedication to justice; once, he famously gave away an automobile to a bidder who had unintentionally made a low offer.

In addition to his television job, Barker was a fervent supporter of animal rights. He established the DJ&T Foundation, which gives money to rescue and shelters for animals. He was also the American Animal Rights Foundation’s president.

Both the entertainment business and the animal rights movement are saddened by Barker’s passing. His wit, kindness, and dedication to making the world a better place will be remembered as making him a true icon.
