Heart of America Newfoundland Club is a community for Newfoundland dog fanciers. We are passionate about this breed and want to share our love for them with others. Our club is dedicated to promoting responsible ownership, breeding, and training of Newfoundlands. We are a fun-loving group of Newfoundlands and their people living in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Iowa. 

We believe that every Newfoundland deserves a loving home and we work hard to make that a reality.

Our Mission

Our Mission

To encourage, promote and improve the quality of the Newfoundland dog. We do that by focusing on community-based efforts including education, awareness, events and rescue. 


Water Rescue

Everyone should witness the beauty and power of a Newfoundland doing what it was born to do. 

HANC members look forward to summer water practices and the annual water test held Labor Day weekend each year.
