As a Fond du Lac Humane Society volunteer, I understand that in caring for said animals(s) I may undertake any number of tasks, including but not limited to: grooming, transporting, feeding and holding the animal(s). I understand that in assuming this volunteer position, I may be exposing myself to potentially significant health risks, including, but not limited to: injuries from bites and scratches. Infectious diseases (e. g.rabies), parasites (e. g.fleas, worms, ticks mites ringworm) and allergic reactions (e.g. skin and asthma). Further, I understand that any of these potential health risks could cause serious medical conditions.
Since many animals that come to the Fond du Lac Humane Society are from unknown backgrounds and are therefore ultimately unpredictable, I am thus aware that the Fond du Lac Humane Society is not in a position to know and makes no representations about the temperament, health or condition of any animals. In particular, I understand that I can not rely on any statements from other volunteers, concerning the health and temperament, and that I must rely on my own judgement. I understand and agree that by working with animals as a volunteer is exclusively at my own risk.
Therefore, I agree to hold harmless, the Fond du Lac Humane Society, its employees, volunteers agents or directors, whether collectively or individually, for any injury or liability the animal(s) may cause to me.
