Kara Haney


Kara grew up in Topeka, Kansas with three sisters and a variety of family pets ranging from Guinea pigs to Arabian horses! She currently lives in Smithville with two horses: Painted Daisy and Disco Diva, three cats; Tiger Lily, Doppler Radar and Fostoria, one mini doxie named Lina Lucy and her husband Doug! Kara has had a love for taking care of animals ever since she can remember.

Kara comes from a background in Property Management, helping people find the perfect place to call home. In 2020, she decided to make a career change and combine her enthusiasm and love for helping both people and animals. Kara joined the Jackson Animal Clinic team in August of 2023 and is thrilled, as she has been a long time client!

She enjoys spending time outdoors, riding her horse on the trail, four wheeling, planting flowers, being on the lake and enjoying time spent laughing with family and friends.

Savanna Gower


Savanna joined our team in August of this year but has been in the veterinary field since 2010. Starting in the spay/neuter clinic of an animal shelter and moving to private practice a few years later, she not only found her passion in life but also her place in the world. Originally from Illinois, she moved to Independence in May and has spent the summer exploring the KC area. Savanna is an avid reader and overall homebody but won’t say no to a good fishing spot!
