Volunteers with Operation Pets Alive are not entitled to compensation for any service rendered, including consideration for employment. Some of the volunteer work may be at times with animals that are unpredictable. As a volunteer, you should be aware that working with animals indoor and/or any outdoor or work situation, can be hazardous. On occasion volunteer service may expose you to potentially hazardous situations, including, but not limited to, bites, scratches, injuries sustained or exposure to diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans. All volunteers are subject to the policies and supervision of Operation Pets Alive supervisors while at adoption sites and must be prepared to work at the direction of the organization's staff. On occasion, the inability of a volunteer to follow guidelines may result in the above organizations being unable to place the volunteer for further service.*
