Paws Humane feels it is important to have a tetanus vaccination before joining the volunteer team. To emphasize that importance, we ask that you read and agree the following:


• I understand that because I handle animals, it is important to discuss being vaccinated against tetanus with my physician.

• I release Paws Humane 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 understand that the behavior of domestic animals is sometimes unpredictable and that some domestic animals are capable of inflicting serious injury or death, as well as extensive property damage. Knowing the risks of handling domestic animals, I agree to assume those risks and to release, indemnify and hold harmless Paws Humane, its officers, directors, employees or contractors for any and all personal injury and property damages resulting from my volunteer work, both onsite and offsite of Paws Humane.


I have read, understand, and agree to the above.
