Two million $$ for neutering
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 1995:
BEVERLY HILLS––Television personality Bob Barker, who ends his Price Is
Right show with a message urging viewers to neuter their pets, has formed a foundation to
fund low-cost or free neutering clinics nationwide with an initial donation of $2 million.
Barker named the DJ&T Foundation in memory of his wife Dorothy Jo and his mother
Matilda (Tilly) Valandra, both of whom shared his affection for animals. Barker pledged to
make annual contributions throughout the rest of his lifetime, and to leave the bulk of his
estate to the foundation upon his death.
Grant proposals for the creation and operation of low-cost or free neighborhood
and/or mobile neutering clinics should be directed to the DJ&T Foundation at 9201 Wilshire
Blvd., Suite 204, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.
