ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A local dog’s misfortune is serving as a reminder for pet owners to keep an extra close eye on their pets as the weather gets warmer.

Tara, the dog pictured above, was bit in the face by a snake six weeks ago. Making matters worse her owner was unable to care for her and now local pet groups are rallying together to save her.

Missouri K-9 Friends is raising money for Tara’s treatment . The veterinarians caring for her say she has a 50-50 shot at surviving but News 4 has learned she is drastically improving since she was admitted.
