Two hundred seventy-four people were able to pitch in a donate to the cause. In return, Binkus has received confirmation from the cardiologist that they are cleared for surgery, and the procedure will take place on August 10th.

“Thank you for giving us this opportunity to save my sweet dog Binkus.”
