This information is used only to help us get a better idea of the demographic make-up of our volunteers.
Please indicate the days and times you are usually available to volunteer. Please note that at this time, we do not have clinics on Thursdays. Tasks on Thursdays would include assisting us with organization of storage units and donations or providing admin/tech support. In the future, we hope to welcome volunteers on other days of the week when we have more clinic opportunities.
The first step to becoming a volunteer with Seattle Veterinary Outreach is to attend a volunteer orientation (via Zoom online). Please select a time from the options below that works best for you. If you aren't available for the scheduled orientations, but would still like to volunteer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In consideration for being permitted to do volunteer work for Seattle Veterinary Outreach (SVO), a Washington Nonprofit Corporation, I acknowledge and agree to the following:
Term. This Agreement shall be in effect from the date of signing and continues for all future volunteer work for SVO.
Insurance. If SVO has insurance in place at the time you are injured and according to the terms and conditions of the SVO insurance policy your injury is covered by said insurance policy, the cost and expenses for your injuries will be covered up to the limits of the SVO insurance policy. This right is contingent on payment from the insurance company that holds the applicable SVO insurance policy. Other than this right to recovery found in this section of this Agreement, you have no right of recover against SVO as set forth in this Agreement.
Assumption of Risk. I fully understand that doing volunteer work for SVO may not only involve risk of serious injury or death, economic loss, property damage or loss that may result from my own actions, inactions or negligence, but also from the actions, inactions or negligence of others and/or condition of the property, and I voluntarily agree to assume this risk.
Release and Indemnification. I, my personal and legal representatives, heirs, successors and next of kin shall forever release, waive, discharge, relinquish and indemnify SVO from any and all actions, causes of action, claims, charges, demands, losses, damages, costs, attorney’s fees, judgments, liens, indebtedness and liabilities of every kind and character, whether known or unknown, including foreseen and unforeseen bodily injury, personal injuries and property damage that may be sustained by me or any other person in any way connected to, related to, or arising out of my volunteer work for SVO, regardless of any negligence of SVO.
Waiver. No officer, director, employee, agent or other representative of SVO is authorized to vary the terms and conditions of this Agreement or to make any oral or written representation contrary to any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement or otherwise in connection with the subject matter of this Agreement.
Partial Invalidity. If any provision or any portion of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then the remaining portion of such provisions and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected by such determination.
First Aid, Treatment and Service Rendered. I release all officers, directors, employees, agents or other representative of SVO from any claim whatsoever on account of first aid, treatment or services rendered during my volunteer work for SVO.
• I understand that because I may handle and/or come in contact with animals, it is important to discuss being vaccinated against tetanus with my physician. I release SVO from all responsibility that may occur because of my not pursuing this matter further and I understand whatever decision I make is at my own risk. I have read, understand and agree to the above tetanus information.
• I fully understand that as a part of my volunteer work for SVO I will come into contact with animals either by directly handling them, fostering or through assisting in their care and adoption. Further, I understand that working with animals carries a risk of injury, and that it is possible that I may be bitten, scratched, and/or otherwise injured.
• I grant SVO permission to use my name, likeness, image, voice, and/or appearance as such may be embodied in any pictures, photos, video recordings, audiotapes, digital images, and the like, taken or made on behalf of SVO. I agree that SVO has complete ownership of such pictures, etc., including the entire copyright, and may use them for any purpose consistent with SVO’s missions. These uses include, but are not limited to, illustrations, bulletins, exhibitions, videotapes, reprints, reproductions, publications, advertisements, and any promotional or educational materials in any medium now known or later developed, including the Internet. I acknowledge that I will not receive any compensation, etc. for the use of such pictures, etc., and hereby release SVO and its agents and assigns from any and all claims which arise out of or are in any way connected with such use.
• My signature, whether original, by fax or any other electronic means, is valid as if it were an original signature.
I have carefully read this Agreement and fully understand its contents. I am aware that I have given up substantial rights by signing this Agreement and I am signing this Agreement voluntarily. I have no obligation to do any volunteer work for SVO or sign this Agreement, but I desire to do so.
