As if George and Amal Clooney couldn’t be any more perfect. Not only are they two of the most beautiful people in Hollywood, but their beauty also extends far beyond good genes and seems to be rooted in good hearts too.
It’s no secret that the new parents are dog lovers. In 2015, the couple adopted a 4-year-old basset hound named Millie from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society in California. Earlier that year, they had adopted 10-year-old Cocker Spaniel, Louie, from a New York City shelter.
The couple found their newest addition on Petfinder and were thrilled to see that the two pups got along swimmingly during their first meeting.
A few months after adopting Millie, they returned to the Humane Society and where they adopted Nate the terrier for George’s parents.
But adoption isn’t enough for these animal lovers, their generosity doesn’t stop at three dogs. In fact, when they heard about nine dogs that needed costly medical care, they couldn’t resist…
Camp Cocker Rescue in California is an animal rescue organization that specializes in Cocker Spaniel dog rescue.
In May, the organization rescued nine dogs from a backyard breeder – many of which required extensive medical intervention including: a double mastectomy, double ear ablation surgeries, and several dental surgeries.
The organization couldn’t pay for these surgeries, so they petitioned donors for assistance in raising funds for these sweet pups. They were overjoyed when George and Amal contacted them about contributing to a fund matching program:
“…we all did happy dances and cried with happiness for this unbelievable matching donation offer…” the organization wrote on Facebook.
After news got out that George and Amal donated a generous $10,000 to Camp Cocker Rescue, more anonymous donors stepped forward with an additional $5,000 donation.
Now, thanks to the matching program and the Clooneys, beautiful dogs like Hunter have a second chance at a happy, healthy life!
