George and Amal Clooney donate $10,000 to dog rescue organization


George and Amal Clooney have a lot of puppy love.

Camp Cocker Rescue recently revealed in a Facebook post that the parents-to-be donated $10,000 to the California animal rescue organization, so that they may look after nine dogs they took in from a backyard breeder. "Well, you can imagine how blown away we were when we heard that a $10,000 donation was pledged to our doggies," read the post shared on Tuesday. "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)."

At the start of the video, Camp Cocker Rescue kept the name of their famous donors a secret, leading up to the big reveal with a drumroll. "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," 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!!!!"

It's no secret that the Clooneys -- who are expecting twins -- have a soft spot for animals in need. In October 2015, the couple brought home a 4-year-old basset hound named Millie from California's San Gabriel Valley Humane Society, and a few months later, they adopted a terrier named Nate for the 55-year-old actor's parents.
