To build a temporary lodging facility where pets undergoing medical treatment at the University of Missouri Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital can stay with their owners. This guest house at the MU College of Veterinary Medicine will provide compassion, care and camaraderie.

Temporary lodging for people and their pets, in a home-like environment, close to the teaching hospital. Veterinary students will have additional opportunities to enhance their client communication skills. Pets staying with their families may experience quicker recoveries. Anxiety will be lessened for both pets and their humans. Barkley House will serve as a prototype for similar facilities at other veterinary referral centers.
