Volunteer Participation Consent and Waiver of Liability
The undersigned, being over the age of eighteen, does hereby agree to volunteer his/her services to the Standish Humane Society, Inc. (“Standish”). I understand that I may work with or around domestic or wild animals, including, but not limited to, dogs and cats, who may be diseased or vicious and who could cause disease or injuries to me, my family, animals or other property. I further understand that officers, directors, employees, or agents of Standish may be negligent or careless through acts or omissions, and as a result of these, or other acts or omissions, I, my family, animals, or other properties could sustain injuries or damages. I also understand that Standish disclaims responsibility for any losses or injuries to me or my property, even if due to negligent performance or failure to perform by the aforementioned or their officers, directors, agents, employees, or representatives. In consideration of Standish’s allowing me to perform services for it and thereby allowing me to work with the animals in its custody, I do hereby agree to accept all risks of loss, injury, or damage to me or my property and to exempt Standish, their officers, directors, agents, employees, and representatives from any liability to me for injuries or losses relating from their negligence or that of their officers, directors, agents, employees, and representatives. In signing this waiver, I do forever RELEASE, covenant to hold harmless and to indemnify the Standish Humane Society, Inc., its officers, directors, employees, agents, servants and representatives, of and from any and all actions, causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, losses, expenses on account of or in any way arising out of, directly or indirectly, all personal injuries or property damages which I may now or hereafter may have resulting from my voluntary performance of services.
