On Thursday afternoon, Bob Barker celebrated his 90th birthday on "Price is Right," the game show Barker hosted for more than 35 years from 1972 to 2007. Honored as the most popular game show host in history, Barker was honored with a standing ovation and introduced by current host Drew Carey reported

Barker may have walked out onto center stage a bit slower than six years ago, but his Hollywood smile and the charming, infectious personality haven't changed a bit. "You folks appreciate the fact that it has taken me a long time to become 90," Barker quipped, but his heart and passion for animals makes him one of the most respected Hollywood humanitarians.

With the animal rescue passion of his wife of 36 years, Dorothy Jo, Bob continues his work for all animals both in the United States and abroad. He lives his passion; Barker has been a vegetarian for over 30 years, and just recently recorded a public service announcement for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. (PETA)

And for those of us, our parents, and for some now our grandparents who watched "The Price is Right" there was never a show that didn't end reminding everyone to spay and neuter your pets. In fact, Drew Carey continues the tradition.

And as is so Bob Barker, besides a beautiful blonde by his side, the most adorable puppy from North Central Animal Shelter in Los Angeles appeared on stage - decked out of course in a tiny birthday celebration coat. The pup is available for adoption, as are hundreds of thousands of pets across the nation.

Celebrate Bob Barker's birthday and adopt a deserving pet. Make it a day to honor the beautiful shelter pets who need homes and to honor a man who continues to devote his life to animal welfare. Earlier this afternoon, Barker stated:

"I was fortunate enough to have a job that paid very well, and I am using that money now for animals."
