The ever generous duo George and Amal Clooney recently donated $10,000 to Camp Cocker Rescue out of Los Angeles, CA.
The elated and immensely grateful animal rescue revealed on its Facebook page that the Clooney’s donated the money to help the organization care for nine dogs that were recently rescued from a backyard breeder.
According to CampCocker.com, the dogs were rescued from an illegal breeding operation in the California desert. The post revealed the heartbreaking news that the dogs had never been seen by a vet. As a result, medical issues such as mammary tumors, dental disease, ruptured ear drums and calcified ears must be addressed; with many spays and neuters to follow.

“Please consider donating to these beautiful dogs as we are struggling to stay on top of our medical bills,” requested the Sherman Oaks California-based rescue organization “that is known for being highly ethical and willing to take on even those dogs who need significant medical rehabilitation.”
The Clooney’s came through and then some!
“Well, you can imagine how blown away we were when we heard that a $10,000 donation was pledged to our doggies,” stated the post noting that the “generous donors would like to see their donation doubled by all of you, so for the month of May, every dollar you donate will be matched (up until we reach $10,000).
“After we all did happy dances and cried with happiness for this unbelievable matching donation offer, we then asked the donors if (and only if they gave us their permission), we could reveal their names to our supporters in order to help us reach our big goal this month,” the post noted.

“They were so very gracious to give us permission to reveal their names. We want to thank George and Amal Clooney for their unbelievable donation, and now it’s time to turn to all of YOU to see if you can match it!!!!”
George, who turned 56 on May 6th and Amal, 39, who are presently preparing to expand the Clooney family with the birth of their twins, also have three rescue dogs; cocker spaniels, Louie and Einstein, and a basset mix named Millie that they opened their hearts and home to after finding Millie at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society.
