The Heart of America Newfoundland Club is a pure-breed dog club. Therefore, we believe it is our responsibility to watch out for purebred Newfoundland dogs who are unwanted or in need of a good home.
Heart of America Newfoundland Rescue, Inc. (HANR), a non-profit organization with 501c3 status, is the means by which we can help Newfs in need. Both organizations are run by the same caring, knowledgeable members.
We have a network of contacts throughout our region who let us know of Newfoundland dogs in peril. We have developed a system for placing each dog with people who are particularly suited for that individual Newfie. We do not purchase dogs, nor do we "broker" dogs for placement. All dogs that go through our program are found or surrendered. Each spends an evaluation period with one of our wonderful foster families.
If you are interested in adopting a Newfoundland Dog from our Rescue Program, please e-mail Brent at HANC Rescue. One of our committee members will contact you.

Please consider rescuing a dog. There are many advantages to adopting a Newf as opposed to buying one. Every dog deserves a loving home and our rescues are no exception. Our foster dogs are evaluated for health, temperament and suitability for placement in a variety of homes.
HANR is committed to each dog we place for the life of that dog and our members are always available in case assistance is needed. We do screen potential adoptive homes and require home checks before placing a dog permanently.
If you are considering surrendering a purebred Newf, please don't hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to help you in your decision process and can provide ideas for alternatives, if you would prefer to keep your dog. We understand that each situation is unique and we will try to help you find the most compassionate solution. Please contact HANC Rescue.
How You Can Help
HANR needs volunteers in many capacities. providing a permanent loving home, fostering a Newf in need, transporting, grooming, performing home checks, or donating to rescue, If you can help, please contact HANC Rescue.
HANR is always looking for great foster homes.
If you can't adopt a dog long-term, consider fostering one. We temporarily place dogs in foster homes in a similar fashion to adopting them and can provide assistance with training, health, and grooming if need be. You supply the love, daily necessities and a stable home environment.
The HANR Committee happily works with other NCA Regional Club Rescue Committees. The more contacts we have, the more likely we are to match each Newfoundland dog with its appropriate family.
