The SPCA put out a call for $2,000 in donations to cover surgery costs, but residents of Squamish and elsewhere stepped up in a big way, raising $6,290 for him and other animals.
The puppy may be taken into a new home as early as next week.
"We’ve been blown away by the public’s kindness and generosity," BC SPCA Squamish Valley branch manager Marika Donnelly said in a news release.
"We are so grateful to everyone who gave and to everyone who contacted us about giving Harold a forever home. He’s doing absolutely amazing!”
