Noah's Ark Animal Clinic

Your pet is your best friend, companion, and (most importantly) your family member. At Noah's Ark, we provide veterinary medicine that centers around your pet and you as an owner. We strive to offer you and your pet the care necessary to enjoy a long and healthy relationship.

Noah’s Ark Animal Clinic was founded in 1970 and has been providing outstanding veterinary care to Brookside and the Kansas City area for over 40 years. Since 1992, Dr. Jane Jeffries has been at the helm. With a deep love of animals and a vision of providing her patients with the same level of medical care and attention given to human patients, Dr. Jeffries has brought Noah’s Ark to where it is today – a four veterinarian, full-service facility offering progressive treatment for pets in a warm and caring environment.

    Love and compassion for animals helped make the decision to enter into veterinary medicine 35 years ago. After working in a practice in Iowa for several years, we moved from Des Moines to Kansas City. I have been a technician at Noah's Ark since 1995. My husband and I share our home with our 2 dogs and 3 cats. It has been such a rewarding experience working with our clients and being a part of their pet's lives in this wonderful Brookside neighborhood.
