About Us

Don't forget to spay and neuter your pets!

One of the most serious problems impacting animals is overpopulation. There are so many dogs being born every day, throughout the United States, that there are just not enough homes for all of them. This results in the destruction and mistreatment of thousands of animals.

Bob Barker, well-known television personality, established the DJ&T Foundation in 1995. Although the Foundation ceased being active at the end of 2022, for nearly thirty years, its goal was to fund low cost spay/neuter clinics and voucher programs as a way to help relieve animal over population. Barker, who ended every "Price is Right" show with an appeal to viewers to spay or neuter their pets, felt compelled to do more to address the problem.

Over three decades, the Foundation funded clinics and voucher programs across the country to help animal lovers do their part in controlling animal overpopulation. While its mission was to assist all qualified organizations, the Foundation was most committed to making grants at the grassroots level to deserving organizations that provided low cost or free spay/neuter services or voucher programs.

The DJ&T Foundation was named in fond memory of Bob’s wife, Dorothy Jo, and his mother, Matilda (Tilly) Valandra, both of whom loved all animals.
