In anticipation that you will be accepted as a volunteer with Mountain View Humane, please read and sign the below agreement.
I agree to accept a position as a volunteer for Mountain View Humane. I agree to comply with all of the policies, rules, and regulations including any which may be established from time to time by Mountain View Humane. I understand that failure to do so may result in my immediate termination as a volunteer.
I acknowledge that my services are provided strictly on a volunteer basis, without any pay or compensation of any kind, and without any liability of any nature on behalf of Mountain View Humane, all services to be performed by me at my own risk.
I recognize when working with animals and performing other volunteer tasks, there exists a risk of injury including physical harm caused by animals. I understand that because I may handle animals, it is important for me to speak with my physician about the tetanus and rabies pre-exposure vaccinations. On behalf of myself, my heirs, personal representatives, and executers, I release, discharge, indemnify, and hold harmless Mountain View Humane, its agents, servants, and employees for any and all claims, causes of action, or demands, of any nature or cause, including costs and attorney’s fees incurred by Mountain View Humane in connection with the same, based on damages or injuries which may be incurred, or sustained by me in any way connected with my services for Mountain View Humane, including, but not limited to, animal bites, accidents, or injuries.
I grant permission to use any photograph or video for promotional use, knowing it will be done in good taste.
