By checking the "I agree" box below, I indicate that, on behalf of my child, I have read, understand and agree to the following:


1. I understand and agree that submitting this application form does not automatically register me as an Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center volunteer, and that there may be certain qualifications I must meet, including the acceptance of established volunteer policies and procedures before I may begin volunteering.


2. By submitting this form, I attest that the information I have provided on this form is true and accurate.


3. My services to the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center are provided strictly in a voluntary capacity as a Volunteer without any express or implied promise of salary or compensation of any kind. This would include any employment type benefits, including employment insurance programs, worker's compensation accrual in any form, vacations or sick time or any type of payment.


4.I will familiarize myself and comply with the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center policies and procedures applicable to Volunteers. I will abide by the mission, rules, regulations, policies, and programs of the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center while I am a volunteer. In particular, I fully understand that the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center expects high standards of ethical treatment for animals under its care.


5. I fully understand that the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center is an "Open Door" shelter and how the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center defines and implements this policy. I also understand that the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center may euthanize animals at any time for medical or behavioral reasons, including aggression or quality of life concerns, and agree to respect those decisions.

7. I understand and agree that the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center website, internal files and records, including names and address of employees, volunteers, donors, applicants, membership lists and similar data are the sole property of the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center and that unauthorized disclosure of such information, its appropriation, changes, or alterations to it may constitute a criminal offense.

I acknowledge that while the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center will take every reasonable precaution to minimize the potential of danger posed by the animals under its care, it is never possible to guarantee the temperament and/or behavior of any animal at all times and under all circumstances. I therefore agree that if I choose to walk, handle, foster, or care for any Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center animal, I will do so at my own risk.


10. I understand that the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center, without notice or hearing, may terminate my services as a Volunteer at any time, with or without reason.
