Volunteer Agreement

I agree to the following terms and conditions intending to be legally bonding to them.

I will abide by the missions, rules, regulations, policies, and programs of the Humane Society of Shenandoah County and Aristocat Cafe while I am a volunteering. 

I will not engage in any unsafe, illegal, or unethical activities while acting as a HSSC volunteer.

As a condition of volunteering, which I acknowledge to be with adequate consideration, I also agree to enter into an additional waiver of liability with this volunteer agreement.

The above conditions have been reviewed with me and I understand that failing to uphold them is sufficient grounds for Aristocat Cafe to request and HSSC to implement my removal as a volunteer.

Confidentiality Agreement

Information concerning the management and operation of our organization is generally not known to the public and should be kept confidential. The following guidelines have been developed for this purpose.

Guidelines for protecting confidentiality

o Confidential information should only be shared with those inside the organization whose jobs require them to have access to the information or when the law requires or protects the release of such information.

o Board Members, Employees, or Volunteers should not disclose sensitive or non-public information to people outside the organization or discuss it in public places.

o Documents containing sensitive information- including information stored on computer systems- should be handled carefully and must be properly stored.

I have read and understand the above and agree to comply with HSSC’s Confidentiality Agreement.

On behalf of myself, my heirs, and personal representatives I hereby release and hold harmless Aristocat Café and HSSC, its Board of Directors, volunteers, and employees from any and all claims, causes of action or demands of any nature or cause connected to my volunteer service.

I also agree to release and hold HSSC and Aristocat Cafe harmless for any damages to my personal property while preforming my volunteer services.

If I am signing this release form as a parent or legal guardian of a minor volunteer (under 18 years of age), I hereby give my consent to allow my child to volunteer services for HSSC. I agree to hold HSSC and Aristocat Café harmless for any claim, loss, or injury incurred by such child.
