What is the MOD Squad?

The Mod Squad is a volunteer-driven, dog behavior modification and training program for our shelter dogs at Great River Rescue. Mod Squad volunteers work directly with shelter dogs in need of behavior intervention. This program has several benefits to the shelter including:

  • Enriching the quality of life for kenneled dogs.
  • Attracting and retaining quality volunteers.
  • Helping dogs become more adoptable.
  • Effectively matching the right dog with the right dog owners.

Volunteers are strongly encouraged to apply. Potential applicants must have volunteered at least 6 hours per month for 3 months to be considered for the program. Some experience with dog training is a plus but is not required. Members must be at least 16 years of age and have their own transportation.
