A Santa Fe man says his dog may well have saved him.

Sam Blackwood says he suffers from depression, anxiety, and PTSD. One month to the day of his previous dog’s death, Blackwood said he found his current dog Dinga, and she helped him to heal.

Blackwood and Dinga were selected to participate in a funding campaign to pay for veterinary treatment through The Magic Bullet Fund.

Community members can donate money to the fund which will in turn pay that money directly to a veterinarian for Dinga’s treatment. Dinga’s campaign is open for donations now, and will end on June 20. So far $2,075 has been raised, but another $1,223 is needed.

Blackwood appeared on KOB Eyewitness News at Noon to discuss the campaign. Watch the video above for more information.
