By agreeing to serve as a Volunteer for Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue of Minnesota (“Wags & Whiskers”), I agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Wags & Whiskers, its directors, officers, volunteers, staff and agents from and against any and all claims, demands, losses, and expenses, including attorney fees, arising out of suits, claims and demands by reason of illness, injury or death of any person(s) or damage to any property attributable to the willful misconduct, negligent acts or negligent omissions of the Volunteer, its subcontractors, and their officers, agents or employees. I agree to maintain a valid driver’s license and automobile liability insurance at all times.
I acknowledge that the behavior of dogs, cats or other animals can be unpredictable and carries with it certain risks, including but not limited to bites, scratches or other injury to both the person and property. I understand that working with animals is inherently dangerous. I understand and agree that Wags & Whiskers rescues animals from shelters, pounds and other situations and, therefore, Wags & Whiskers cannot know the complete behavioral, medical or mental history of its animals. I recognize and accept this risk and waive the right to bring any legal claims against Wags & Whiskers, its directors, officers, agents and employees from any illness, injury, death, or damage to property that may result from the inherently dangerous activity of working with or caring for animals.
I further agree to hold harmless and release from liability Wags & Whiskers, its volunteers, staff, agents, officers, and directors should I become ill or injured by any animals as a result of my volunteer work or as a result of any actions of Wags & Whiskers, its volunteers, staff, agents officers and directors.

I further acknowledge that I have had the opportunity to seek legal counsel of my own choice before executing this agreement, and I have not been denied the opportunity to do so.
