George and Amal Clooney donate over £7000 to animal rescue

George and Amal Clooney have also promised to match donations to the charity

George and Amal Clooney are huge animal lovers, and recently donated around £7,748 ($10,000) to an animal rescue charity in California in order for them to care for nine dogs who were rescued from a backyard breeder. The couple's generosity was thanked by Camp Cocker Rescue, who wrote: "Some generous donors heard about the plight of the nine new dogs we just took in from the backyard breeder and they wanted to lend a paw. The medical bills and medical to do list is getting longer by the day… Well, you can imagine how blown away we were when we heard that a $10,000 donation was pledged to our doggies."

They also revealed that George and Amal plan to match every penny raised by others in May, adding: "Our generous donors would feel so good 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) . . . 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!"
