LOS ANGELES -

Bob Barker has spent millions of dollars helping elephants, bears, chimps and other animals.

For decades when he was host of "The Price Is Right," he ended every show with a plea to viewers to spay or neuter their pets.

Animal Defenders International will present him with the Lord Houghton Award on Oct. 13 at a West Hollywood ceremony.

ADI President Jan Creamer says Barker was chosen not only for a lifetime of service, but for his generosity and for repeatedly taking the animal message to Congress.

The award brings Barker international recognition, but he says it means so much because of the respect he has for ADI. He says the group is one of the finest animal protection organizations in Europe.
