Described as shelter volunteers doing a “happy dance” at Camp Cocker Rescue, after George and Amal Clooney donated $10,000 to help the California rescue organization care for nine severely neglected dogs recently rescued from a backyard breeder, the celebrity couple continue to prove the huge hearts they have when it comes to our four-legged best friends.
According to the organization’s Facebook page, the announcement came with a bit of mystery at first concerning the generous donors:
“Well, you can imagine how blown away we were when we heard that a $10,000 donation was pledged to our doggies. Our 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).”
And the post continued with the drum roll and identification of the Clooneys’ generosity:
“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) …if we could reveal their names to our supporters in order to help us reach our big goal this month. 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!!!”
The video below is quite self explanatory of the life these dogs endured. Bred over and over again with minimal care; their owners had only been concerned with profits. Sadly that is the plight of the innocent victims of puppy mills and backyard breeders. Forced to live outdoors in the filth, the puppies had never had human interaction, veterinarian care or love. And now their lives have changed.
