START A PETITION

Action Request: Petition

Retired Price is Right host Bob Barker is a staunch supporter of animal rights, ending shows with the message, "Have your pet spayed or neutered." For this reason, producers never offered fur coats, leather or anything associated with animal cruelty during Barker's tenure as host.

Recently, Barker has expressed concern for the show's recent prize selection, which has included tickets to SeaWorld and the Calgary Stampede, an event with a history of animal abuse. The Calgary Stampede prize package included six pairs of leather boots. Though Barker doesn't blame current host Drew Carey for these cruel prizes, he believes someone should have put a stop to them.

The Price is Right doesn't need to offer prizes associated with animal cruelty, and the program has remained popular for decades without these prizes. Please sign the petition to convince executive producer Michael Richards to honor Barker's wish for cruelty-free prizes on The Price is Right.

Joseph Kony deserves to be arrested tomorrow. He\\\'s spent two decades committing horrific crimes against humanity. However, if he were to be arrested, would the children be safe? Not in the least. So, what can you do? 1. Only buy fair trade ...
