I authorize Furry Friends volunteers to print and distribute the above Personal Contact Information to other Furry Friends volunteers.
I understand that there is a possibility of health or injury risk to humans and personal pets when caring for rescued animals and I hereby agree to hold Furry Friends harmless from any and all liability, damage or personal injury resulting from volunteer service.
I understand that because I may handle and/or come in contact with animals, it is important to discuss being vaccinated against tetanus with my physician. I release Furry Friends, from all responsibility that may occur because of my not pursuing this matter further and I understand whatever decision I make is at my own risk.
I acknowledge and understand that as a volunteer of Furry Friends, I am not covered by workers’ compensation or any other insurance policy through Furry Friends for any damages or injuries I may sustain during volunteer activities. I understand that I am responsible for obtaining health insurance coverage through an independent health insurance company.
I fully understand that as a part of my volunteer work for Furry Friends, I will come into contact with animals either by directly handling them, fostering or through assisting in their care and adoption. Further, I understand that working with animals carries a risk of injury, and that it is possible that I may be bitten, scratched, and/or otherwise injured.
I fully understand that as a volunteer and/or foster home for Furry Friends, my family may come in contact with animals at Furry Friends events, and I and my family and/or guests may come into contact with animals in my home if I am fostering an animal. I understand that working with animals carries a risk of injury, and it is possible that my family and/or guests may be bitten, scratched and/or otherwise injured.
My agreement to this volunteer liability release attests to my intent to hold harmless and release from all liability Furry Friends or any of its past, present or future Officers, agents, volunteers, employees or assigns, from all acts which are related to the normal performance of required and implied duties. My agreement, whether original, by fax or any other electronic means, is valid as if it were an original signature.
In case of emergency, I authorize Furry Friends to notify my emergency contacts listed above.
