Bob Barker Asked to Donate $5K, Gives $250K Instead

When Lynn Cuny, founder of the animal charity Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation (WRR), reached out Bob Barker asking if he might help fund a $5,000 avian ventilator, he came back with a counteroffer: How about $250,000?

Because that’s how Bob Barker, hero to animals and all sentient life in general, rolls.

The former “Price is Right” host made the donation through his DJ&T Foundation – which helps provide grants for the spay and neuter of pets and other animal organization needs. It also features a website straight out of 1998. But whatever, it’s Bob Barker man.

“Mr. Barker placed a personal phone call to Lynn during which he mentioned that he had done a little research and found nothing but praise for our organization and our work with animals,” the org’s Facebook page reports. “He then said he was sending $250,000 to support the purchase of the ventilator as well as many other things he knows we need for all the animals we rescue.”

WRR, located in Texas, help rehabilitate over 5,000 animals every year – and also offers many animals (e.g., wolves, bears, big cats, primates, reptiles, etc.) permanent sanctuary on its 187-acre facility.

Nice work, Bob.

    A wonderful gesture, but Bob Parker has also been sued for sexual harassment, so let’s not say he is a hero “to all sentient life”. It seems like he respects animal more than women.

Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
