Alison Eastwood Is Raising Funds for 110 Rescued Research Chimps

Alison Eastwood isn’t only daughter to legendary actor Clint Eastwood, but she’s also an avid animal activist.

Most recently, the actress/director is reaching out a helping hand to 110 chimpanzees who were recently released from a biomedical research lab. Eastwood is all set to help these fascinating and intelligent creatures get a new start after being locked up at the New Iberia Research Center.

The chimps are now living at the nonprofit sanctuary Chimp Haven, and Eastwood has started a crowdfunding campaign alongside LoveAnimals.org to benefit the animal rescue center, where these chimps will soon begin living a full and hopefully healthy fresh life.

Through the campaign, Eastwood hopes to gather support, funds and lifetime care to the chimps. “We owe them,” said Eastwood. “These self-aware, social animals sacrificed so much for the benefit of humans. They deserve the best possible care during retirement, both physically and emotionally.”

In addition to the CHIMP Act, which provides partial funding for their care, an estimated additional $600,000 per year is needed for these 110 chimps — some are suffering from long-term health complications due to research, including infectious diseases like HIV and Hepatitis C.
