The passing of game show host and animal rights activist Bob Barker Aug. 26 has prompted Huntsville Animal Services to present a call to the public to honor Barker by donating to their cause — a cause Barker himself spent decades supporting.

Here’s how you can help Huntsville Animal Services and honor the legacy of Bob Barker in the process:

Bob Barker, who passed away Saturday, Aug. 26, at age 99, was a fierce animal rights advocate. Outside of his long-standing “The Price is Right” job, Barker created and funded The DJ&T Foundation that helped animals across the United States.

Like Barker, you can help the community’s furry friends by donating to organizations like the Huntsville Animal Services Foundation.

“Larger-than-life celebrities like Bob Barker used their fame, wealth and time for the good of animals across the world. We’re blessed with a giving community and look forward to using these funds to save more and more pet lives in Huntsville.”

Dr. Karen Sheppard, director of Huntsville Animal Services

The Huntsville Animal Services Foundation allows citizens to directly impact the care a pet receives while it’s in the shelter. Donations benefit pets by providing medical services and procedures, medications and other specialized care that often falls outside the scope of a municipal animal shelter.

Citizens are also allowed to donate their time through volunteering or provide physical items such as toys, leashes and treats.

Donations in honor of Barker will solely benefit spay/neuter efforts at the shelter. To donate or learn more about the foundation, click here.
