Volunteer Release and Waiver of Liability:
My child is about to volunteer at Rancho Coastal Humane Society (“RCHS”). I recognize that there are risks and health hazards directly and indirectly involved in participating in a program which involves exposure to animals, including cats, rabbits, dogs, puppies and kittens, and conditions found in kennels and veterinary hospitals. I understand and agree that RCHS is not liable for any injuries or damages sustained by my child while volunteering at RCHS. I am the natural parent or legal guardian of the participant listed above, and I hereby give my permission for this child to participate in volunteering at RCHS.
Canine kennel cough, Feline upper respiratory infection, ringworm, intestinal parasite infections such as tapeworm, roundworm, whipworm, giardia and hookworm can occur. Students will not knowingly be directly exposed to or interact with unhealthy animals. However as a preventative measure, care in washing hands thoroughly before leaving the shelter, removal of shoes before entering your home/yard, and changing clothing prior to contact with personal pets is recommended.
I agree to allow RCHS to use any photos or videos taken of my child for use in all PR efforts, any and all publications, including website entries and to use for social media, without compensation or notification or any other consideration.
I understand and agree to all of the Rules and Regulations of the Kids Community Service (KCS) Program. Click here to read KCS Rules and Regulations
I release Rancho Coastal Humane Society, its Board of Directors, staff and volunteers from any and all liability arising from performing community service at this facility. I have read and understand the above statements.
