Our Story

Let our family take care of yours.
Hometown Veterinary Clinic of Jacksonville, formerly known as Ebrey Veterinary Clinic, was established in 1975 by Dr. John Ebrey. In 2017, after 45 years of serving the Jacksonville community and helping countless numbers of animals and their humans, Dr. Ebrey retired, and Dr. Hannah Burnett purchased the clinic, and Hometown Veterinary Clinic was established.

“I originally had big plans to move out of Illinois. After a cross-country move to Charleston, SC, I was drawn back to my hometown, and after working in nearby communities, a desire to serve the Jacksonville community continued to grow. After the birth of my son, I decided to firmly plant roots near family and friends, and circumstance led to the opportunity to fulfill my dreams of helping Jacksonville area animals and their owners for many years to come. Hometown Veterinary Clinic is exactly that for me—it is home, and I look forward to you joining me here.”

-Dr. Burnett
