"One of things that limits us is space for chimps," she said. "Right now, we can take about 22 additional chimps. But at a cost of $40 a day each, that's an expensive feat."
This is where actress and director Alison Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood, comes in. "When I heard that these medical chimps were being retired from labs, I wondered, ‘how can I help?'" Eastwood told The Dodo. "At the same time, I also met the founders of Loveanimals.org [a crowdfunding site for animal causes]. I'd always thought crowdfunding campaigns were awesome. We all decided we'd get together to put out a campaign to help chimps."
Eastwood created a fundraiser on Loveanimals.org calling on people to donate to provide funds for the daily care of chimps at the sanctuary.
