All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. By signing this Volunteer Waiver, you acknowledge the following.
Rescue dogs are by their nature unpredictable in behavior. Dog Gone Seattle (hereinafter referred to as “DGS”) does not know nor can it reasonably investigate the behavior of every dog it rescues and with which you may have contact.
Accordingly, you, as a Volunteer, (hereinafter referred to as “Volunteer”) agree to the following conditions:
1. To agree to assume the risk of personal injury in the course of volunteer work with DGS, no matter how caused, including such injury that may occur due to dog bites, scratches, communicable diseases or pests. To also agree to hold DGS, its officers, directors, employees, and volunteers forever harmless for any injury whatsoever suffered as a result of volunteer activities with DGS. *
2. To acknowledge that any dog rescued by DGS is solely owned by and is property of DGS, and as a DGS volunteer agree not to withhold, sell, or giveaway any dog entrusted by the organization.*
3. To not rescue any animal as a stray or a shelter in the name of DGS without prior authorization from a director, officer or employee of DGS.*
Disclaimer: Volunteers with DGS may have access to confidential, proprietary, and/or other trade secret information belonging to DGS. Volunteer agrees to keep all information strictly confidential and refrain from using it or disclosing it outside the organization. In addition, Volunteer agrees, upon conclusion of volunteering, to return all property, equipment, documents (including electronically stored information) of DGS.
By my electronic signature below, I acknowledge that I have read and agree with the above Terms of Volunteering.
