If you are/were a regular Price Is Right watcher, I’m sure you remember Bob Barker’s famous reminder at the end of each show to spay and neuter your pets. Well what you might NOT know is that Bob’s involvement with animal welfare goes far beyond service announcements.

Barker has donated a million dollars to the University of Virginia Law school to help establish an animal law program, which includes a course on animal law and funding for guest speakers as well as a writing competition.

“There is definitely interest in animal law at the law school,” said the School’s Law Dean Paul Mahoney. “I think whenever you have a high profile legal case, it influences student interests, and certainly the Michael Vick case has raised awareness of animal law issues.”

Throughout his life Barker has also donated funds to Harvard, Columbia, Georgetown, Duke, Northwestern, Stanford and UCLA, and worked tirelessly as an advocate for animals.

So from all of us here at Ecorazzi, a big “Come on down,” to Bob for all the great work he does. Keep it up!
