LOS ANGELES - Alison Eastwood is taking her famous name to a new program looking to boost animal rescue efforts throughout the country.

The actress and fashion designer has launched a new online network called FosterFurKids to help connect shelter animals with people willing to foster a pet.

She says rescued animals seem to know how lucky they are.

"They always sense when they come out of the shelter," she said in a visit to the ABC7 studio. "I can see it in their face - their gratitude."

Eastwood, the daughter of Clint Eastwood, also heads the Eastwood Ranch Foundation, a nonprofit which also works for animal rescue causes.
