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.

Currently the Heart of America Kennel Club and the Leavenworth Kennel club work together to form “cluster shows” that occur in March of every year in Kansas City, Missouri. We also work with regional breed clubs so they can host their specialties in conjunction with this cluster of shows.
