Barkley House

Barkley House is a project to provide temporary lodging for families whose pets are receiving treatment at the University of Missouri Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH). Stoney Creek Inn and Conference Center in Columbia has set aside a room that has been modified to accommodate pets that are patients at the VMTH and their owners. The room has a non-slip, non-porous floor for easy clean-up, hypoallergenic bedding for pets and their owners, and supplies needed for animals undergoing long-term care, such as water and food bowls, a litter box and a pet bed. The room also has a private door leading to enough green space for pets to enjoy when they are able. The facility allows pets to stay with their owners in a homelike setting, lessening anxiety for both the animals and their owners and helping to speed recovery.
