In the mid 1990's, the groups in Kansas and metro Kansas City came together and formed MO/KAN Boxer Rescue, an affiliate of the American Boxer Rescue AssociationMO/KAN Boxer Rescue became a licensed 501c3 non-profit organization in 2000 whose aim is the promotion of responsible breeding practices, breed education and assistance to shelters and individuals with boxers that have become homeless through no fault of their own. MO/KAN does not maintain a shelter facility, but rather networks individuals looking for an adult boxer with the shelters and humane societies that have them. Through association volunteers and licensed commercial kennels, a few boxers are provided housing to avoid the overcrowding that exists in shelters and affords them a better opportunity to find a new family.

MO/KAN has joined with boxer rescues in Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska to form a consortium with common goals of sharing tasks, education and resources, thus sharing some of the overall burden across the 4 state area.
