Bob Barker Building will be PETA's West Coast hub

Bob Barker's name has been attached to a game show and a cause for decades. Now it's attached to a building, too.

For decades, the former game show host urged "Price Is Right" viewers to spay or neuter their pets. After he retired from the show, he donated $2.5 million to renovate a Los Angeles building that will become the West Coast headquarters of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

PETA officials and Barker will be on hand Thursday for a red carpet, all vegan, dog-friendly grand opening.

The Bob Barker Building on Sunset Boulevard has a new art deco façade, a rebuilt public sidewalk and eco-friendly cork floors, and will have rooftop solar panels.

It will house PETA's media, marketing, youth outreach and campaign departments.
