George's Memorial Contributions
The Barkley House project at the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Missouri will provide temporary lodging for animal patients and their families.
Barkley House will be a guest house at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital for animal patients and their families. Entirely funded through private donations, Barkley House will be a place where pets undergoing long-term treatment and their owners can enjoy compassion, care, and camaraderie.
For those traveling long distances to the teaching hospital for specialized services, Barkley House will provide a home-like environment. For those whose pets require on-going treatment, such as daily radiation or chemotherapy, Barkley House will provide temporary lodging close to the Teaching Hospital.
It is hoped that Barkley House will serve as an example and inspiration for the development of similar facilities to help companion animal patients and their caregivers at other veterinary referral centers.
The facility will provide a unique atmosphere in which veterinary students will enhance their client communication skills and ensure professional and compassionate veterinary care
