ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – A local company is giving back to animals after being inspired by one abused dog's story.

John Beal Roofing Company has started the "Beal 4 Barks" fund through the Humane Society of Missouri to help abused and neglected animals. CEO John Beal said the story of Trooper, a dog dragged down Interstate 55 last year and nursed back to health, inspired him to create the fund.
