The Heart of America Kennel Club is an all-breed kennel club comprised of canine breeders, exhibitors, and owners located in Kansas City, Missouri and the surrounding area in Missouri and Kansas. The club was organized in late 1947 and was incorporated in Missouri as a "non-profit" organization on January 8, 1948. It was accredited by the American Kennel Club that same year and held its first all-breed show on February 27, 1949.

Heart of America was granted Member Club status by the AKC on June 12, 1956. Our voting delegate to the AKC is Julie Lux.

The Heart of America Kennel Club is an organization made up of persons interested in the welfare of purebred dogs and is dedicated to the activities associated with the sport of purebred dogs.

For over 65 years, the club has sponsored all-breed competition events, including conformation dog shows, obedience trials and rally trials as well as a variety of service projects, education programs and training classes. The club encourages responsible dog ownership by providing the general public with access to reputable and experienced breeders through its breeder referral service and at its competition events.

The club strongly supports the health and wellness of all dogs through sponsorship of research and canine health programs at accredited veterinary medicine colleges in the Midwest and nationally through contributions to the AKC's Canine Health Foundation. In addition, the club promotes Veterinary Technology training to assist in animal care through endowed scholarship and personalized stethoscope programs at Maple Woods Community College.

It is the goal of the Heart of America Kennel Club to provide assistance to persons searching for a specific dog breed by suggesting names of knowledgeable and responsible breeders and who have been approved by HOAKC to participate in the service.
