Long time animal advocate, Alison Eastwood, hosted celebrity friends, family and many animal lovers on Saturday, November 7th, for a special afternoon to support her Eastwood Ranch Foundation, an animal welfare organization, focused on rescuing domestic dogs and cats from high kill shelters in the Los Angeles area communities. Guests, including her father, legendary, award winning actor and director, Clint Eastwood, enjoyed a beautiful afternoon in the heart of the sprawling Malibu Canyons sipping wine, tasting food and enjoying a cute puppy or two while raising funds to help rescue more animals and place them in forever homes.
As celebrities trickled down the red carpet, talk among them was of their desire to support their friend, Alison, as well as of the importance of organizations like the Eastwood Ranch to not only provide help for the animals but to also educate people on the importance of animal rescue and adoption. Actresses, Mariel Hemingway and Marcia Gay Harden both expressed hope that the event would encourage more people to consider adoption instead of shopping for animals online and in stores.
FOREVER PUPPY LOVE: Alison Eastwood's first rescue dog was a German Shepard named, Holly. Though Holly is no longer with us, she is never far from Alison's heart or mind.
Both actresses also expressed love for their own personal rescue pets which between them include dogs, cats and guinea pigs. The award for the most unusual rescue pet, however, went to Alison Eastwood herself, who listed a pet rat among her current animal family members which also includes two horses, dogs, cats and rabbits.
Speaking with Alison Eastwood, it was easy to see that animals hold a huge piece of her heart and helping them is one of her her life's passions. Her work and advocacy for animals extends far beyond just dogs and cats. She has spent her life working with several welfare organizations, volunteering and raising funds for the protection and well being of all animal life including everything from wild horses to marine life and, exotics.
