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 and her husband Derek Haggard purchased the clinic and Hometown Veterinary Clinic was established.

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

-Dr. Burnett & Derek
