What special talents or qualities have you and how could you use them at LAWS?
I assert that I am the parent or other legal guardian for this applicant to be a junior volunteer for LAWS, and that I understand that in working with any animals, scratches and sometimes bites can occur. I understand that all animals at LAWS have been checked for health and have been vaccinated against distemper and, if 4 months or older, rabies. I herewith give permission for my child/legal ward to engage in the activities described in this application, and certify that, if the child is under 16, I or my designated substitute will accompany the applicant at all times when he/she is working on a LAWS project or at the LAWS office. I will hold LAWS harmless in the event my child/legal ward is injured during the course of normal, planned or sanctioned activities for LAWS, provided LAWS staff and volunteers have not been grossly negligent in normal precautions.*
