Terms and Conditions
My services to the animal shelter are provided strictly in a voluntary capacity as a volunteer, and without any express or implied promise of salary, compensation or other payment of any kind whatsoever.
My services are furnished without any employment-type benefits, including employment insurance programs, worker’s compensation accrual in any form, vacations or sick time.
I will familiarize myself and comply with the animal shelter’s policies and procedures applicable to volunteers. In particular, I fully understand that the animal shelter expects high standards of moral and ethical treatment of the animals under its care. I will adhere strictly to these standards in my capacity as a volunteer. I will follow the policies, procedures, and safety precautions of the animal shelter, and follow the instructions/directions of the staff of the animal shelter. I understand that the animal shelter, without notice or hearing, may terminate my services as a volunteer at any time, with or without reason.
I understand the potential safety risks of working with animals and of bringing home illnesses from the shelter to personal pets. I will practice reasonable health hygiene and adhere to the hygiene policies of the animal shelter. I am covered by a health insurance plan, and I am current on my tetanus vaccination.
I will not bring unapproved guests or family to the Animal Shelter while I am on duty.
I understand that the handling of animals and other volunteer activities on behalf of the Animal Shelter may place me in a hazardous situation and could result in injury to me or my personal property. On behalf of myself, and my heirs, personal representatives and assigns, I hereby release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless the Animal Shelter and its directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all claim, causes of actions and demands of any nature, whether known or unknown, arising out of or in connection with my volunteer activities on behalf of the Animal Shelter. Understanding that public relations are an important part of a volunteer’s activities on behalf of the Animal Shelter, I hereby authorize the Animal Shelter to use any photographs of me in its possession for public relations purposes. I ask that the Animal Shelter use reasonable efforts to give me advance notice of any such use, but such notification is not a condition to release photographs for public relations purposes.
