As a Fond du Lac Humane Society volunteer, I understand that in caring for said animal(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 colunteer poistion, 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 condition.
Since many animals that come to the Fond du Lac Humane Society are from unknown background 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 representatons about the temperament, health or conditon of animal. In particular, I understand that I can not rely on any statements from other volunteers, concering 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 employee, volunteers agents or directors, whether collectively or individual, for injury or liability the animal(s) may cause to me.
