Heart of America Newfoundland Club
Updated April 13th, 2016

Welcome to the Heart of America Newfoundland Club, also known as HANC.We are a gathering of people Iowa, Kansas, Missouri,
Nebraska, and Oklahoma (and a few other states) who live with and-or love Newfoundland Dogs. Within this website,
we offer information pertaining to our Club and many activities we pursue with our dogs.

There are now three Newfoundlands with the Heart of American Newfoundland Rescue who are looking for their forever homes.
Two of them, Bailey and Mo, would love to find a forever home together.
Can you help them? Please visit our HANR page. Thank you!
