Hey, Bob Barker, you should come on down because you’re the next contestant on making the world right!

The former host of The Price Is Right has just been named an honorary fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, making him the first person in the entertainment industry to receive the award. The honorary fellows that came before him include Nobel Laureates, philanthropists, and academics who have worked towards animal rescue and welfare, that’s pretty great company to keep.

Barker, who turns 87 this Sunday, has made large donations to universities like Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, Northwestern, Duke, Georgetown, Virginia, Columbia, and his own alma mater Drury University, where he has endowed a chair in animal rights. As a result these universities have beefed up their animal law studies programs and allowed hundreds of law students to further the animal rights cause.

“Almost single-handedly Bob’s sagacity and generosity have – in little more than a decade – propelled animals from being a marginal issue into the academic mainstream. This is a colossal achievement”, said Professor Andrew Linzey, founder and Director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics.

If you ever watched The Price Is Right from 1972-2007, you’ll remember that Barker ended each episode with the phrase, “Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered.” Obviously his influence will reach beyond the screen and into classrooms now, making this a well earned award.
