WAIVER - please read the following carefully before signing.
In order to foster for us you must live within a 30 mile radius from Inman, SC. This is to ensure that if an emergency arises someone can help and you can get the cat to our vet if needed. You must be at least 21 years or older to foster for us. Reliable transportation is a must.
As a foster for SCCCP, you will be liable for medical bills for your foster cat if you choose to seek treatment for the cat(s) that has not been approved by Ashley. All medical concerns need to be addressed through Ashley first, and vet visits must be approved for SCCCP to pay for the visit.
Our primary vet is Orchard Hill Vet Clinic in Inman. As a foster it will be your responsibility to get your foster cat(s) to and from approved vet visits at this clinic. This is where your cats will most likely get all their vaccines and get spayed/neutered at. Sometimes we use Animal Allie's but not often unless it's for a feral cat.
Food and litter is generally at the fosters expense unless we get donations and we will send a message to let everyone know we have food and litter available.
I understand that this is an application to foster for SCCCP and is neither a promise of nor a commitment to any volunteer opportunity. I certify that I have provided and will provide information throughout the selection process, including on this application for a volunteer position and in interviews with SCCCP, that is true, correct and complete to the best of my knowledge. I understand that misrepresentations or omissions may be cause for my immediate rejection as an applicant for a volunteer position with SCCCP or my termination from a present or future volunteer position.
I understand and agree that any cats I foster belong to SCCCP. They may not be adopted out, given away, or otherwise transferred from my home without the express permission of SCCCP.
I recognize and understand the inherent risks associated with the care of animals, including but not limited to the possibility of any injury to person and/or property which I may suffer as a result of the unpredictable nature and/or provocation of animals. I understand that rescue animals may carry transmissible diseases which may be spread to my personal pets. I agree to take the proper precautions to minimize these risks. I will not hold SCCCP responsible for any illness to my personal pet or any other animal under my care as a result of cross contamination from a SCCCP animal.
I further understand that SCCCP carries no personal and/or liability insurance for volunteers and that I should obtain such from a personal source should I require it. I understand that I will receive no pay, benefits or other privileges of employment of any kind for my services. I further understand that I am not eligible for worker’s compensation benefits if I am injured or become ill as a result of my volunteer work, and I am not eligible for unemployment compensation benefits if or when my volunteer assignment ends. I also certify that I have not been promised and have no expectation that I will receive a paid position as a result of my volunteer work.
In consideration of the mutual promises of the parties contained in this Waiver, or of the acts to be performed by either, the parties agree that I hereby knowingly and voluntarily waive any and all claims, damages or causes of action which I may have or incur against SCCCP, its officers, directors, agents, affiliates and employees as a result of my donation of time and effort.
This Waiver shall be binding upon the parties hereto, their heirs, assigns and legal representatives
