On August 26, 2023, beloved game show host Bob Barker passed away at the age of 99.

Fans are now interested in learning more about his longtime partner Nancy Burnet.

Nancy Burnet: Who is she?

Burnet is a vocal supporter of animal rights. According to People, she established United Activists for Animal Rights in California in 1987 and currently serves as its president.

Barker, a fervent supporter of animal rights, backed the group.

She also serves as the DJ&T Foundation’s director, a position she has held since 2000.

The outlet claims that Barker founded the business in 1994, and that it “offers affordable spaying and neutering services.”

In December 2022, Burnet spoke with Fox News about her and Barker’s work in animal rights and shared that some of her favorite moments with him occurred while they were on the road.

Everywhere we have gone, she claimed, we have gotten involved in some way with an animal issue.

When did Nancy Burnet and Bob Barker first meet?

At an animal adoption event that the late television host and actor Earl Holliman were hosting, Burnet told Fox News that she and Barker first spoke on March 27, 1983.

She admitted to the magazine that she was unaware of Barker and The Price is Right, the CBS game show he hosted from 1972 to 2007. However, a friend had informed her of his involvement with the spay-neuter movement.

“Burnet approached Barker about another project she was working on, and the two connected over their shared passion for animal rights advocacy,” the article continued.

What was Nancy Burnet’s reaction to Bob Barker’s passing?

Following Barker’s passing, Burnet gave a statement to Page Six.

She declared: “I am incredibly proud of the ground-breaking work Barker and I did to expose animal abuse in the entertainment industry, as well as our efforts to better the situation of abused and exploited animals both domestically and abroad.

Over these 40 years, we had wonderful friendships. He’ll be sorely missed.
