Heart of America Newfoundland Club


The Heart of America Newfoundland Club welcomes anyone who has an interest in Newfs.

Whether you are interested in conformation, draft or water work, therapy work, Newfs as pets, or just want to learn more about the breed, we encourage you to become a member.

Membership in a Regional Club is the best way to enjoy the many benefits of Newf ownership and learn from experienced Newf owners.

We would be happy to talk with you about becoming a member of our club. The best way to do that is to come to one of our functions and participate. That way you have one of the requirements for membership already out of the way.

You can find our current events on our calendar.

Please see below regarding how to obtain an application. Be sure to read, fill in, and bring a copy of this application with you to a HANC event.

In the meantime, here are a few things you may want to check out:
