Volunteer Transport Waiver

I recognize that working with animals places me at physical risk, and I agree to assume that risk. I realize that although Upward Dog Rescue (“UDR”) has taken all reasonable measures to protect me, accidents and injuries may still occur. I realize that dogs are animals, and may bite, scratch or carry disease. They may also cause damage to my vehicle or personal property. Therefore, I hereby completely release and entirely discharge UDR from any and all claims and causes of action that I or another might have or bring relating to or arising from any injury or damage that I should sustain while assisting UDR or in connection with my volunteer work for UDR.

I have a valid California Driver's License, car insurance and reliable transportation. I understand and agree that UDR is not liable for any injuries, damages, liabilities, losses, judgments, costs, or expenses whatsoever that I may suffer or sustain in connection with the performance of my volunteer activities unless they are the result of UDR gross negligence (defined as: a carelessness and reckless disregard for the safety or lives of others, which is so great it appears to be almost a conscious violation of other people's rights to safety) or intentional misconduct.

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 UDR 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.

My signature to this volunteer liability release attests to my intent to hold harmless and release from all liability UDR or any of its past, present or future Officers, agents, volunteers, employees or assigns, from all acts which are related to the normal performance of required and implied duties. My signature, whether original, by fax or any other electronic means, is valid as if it were an original signature.
