Glaive shares GoFundMe for dog on all dogs go to heaven EP cover art

19 July 2022, 12:26 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Glaive has shared a GoFundMe to help Binkus, the dog that featured on the cover art for his 2021 EP all dogs go to heaven.

Last year glaive released his all dogs go to heaven EP, which featured a dog called Binkus on the cover art and in the video for the EP title-track.

Earlier today (19 July), glaive shared a GoFundMe started by Binkus' owner Samson. According to the description, "a severe heart murmur was detected by our general vet, and an echocardiogram revealed that Binkus has a condition known as pulmonic stenosis (PS)."

"PS is a condition in which the valve that separates the right side of the heart from the blood vessel does not open normally," Samson continued. "As her body works to compensate, she shows signs of further complications (development of abnormal heart rhythms, enlarged heart) that eventually lead to congestive heart failure."

Samson wrote, "Based on the severity of her condition, if left untreated, she has been given a life expectancy of 3-5 years. She is now 3 1/2 . The option that gives her an opportunity to live a happy 10-12 years is a $7,500 procedure with a high success rate called Balloon Valvuloplasty. Because of its cost, it is out of reach of most dog owners, including me. I am putting what savings I can towards it, but it is not enough, so I am reaching out for any help. Binkus has been a mascot for myself, family, friends and beyond – if you are a fan of Glaive, you might know Binkus from the cover and music video of All Dogs. This sweet friend of mine has been the dog of my dreams. I am committed to finding a way to get her proper treatment. I am already so grateful for the support and encouragement I have received, and I thank every one of you for sharing and for donations of any kind."

Samson is aiming to raise $8,700. As well as sharing a breakdown of the medical costs, Samson revealed that "excess funds will be donated to the Stand Up for Pits Organisation."
