I agree to attend the mandatory foster orientation session before I begin fostering. *
I understand that any misrepresentation of the above information authorizes Save Our Scruff to deny application, and/or reclaim the dog that is in my home. I acknowledge that Save Our Scruff cannot guarantee any dogs against parasites, diseases or destructive behavior. I will not hold Save Our Scruff responsible, nor seek any compensation for damages, medical fees or other liabilities incurred by the pet I foster. *
I understand that SOS strongly recommends that all household animals (current pets) are up-to-date on vaccines as well as on a flea, tick and heartworm preventative. If they are not, I understand that SOS is not held financially responsible for any costs associated with the animals. If a foster dog becomes positive for a parasite while in my care Save Our Scruff will not be responsible for providing the treatment to any household pets except the SOS foster dog. *
Although every attempt will be made to ensure your safety, animals are by their nature unpredictable in behaviour. Accordingly you, as a volunteer agree to the following conditions: I hereby agree to hold save our scruff, rehome & rescue its officers, directors, employees and volunteers forever harmless for any damage to personal property or any injury whatsoever that i may suffer as a result of my volunteer activities with save our scruff, rehome & rescue. This includes but is not limited to dog bites, scratches, communicable illnesses or pests contracted from any animal. I am aware that as a volunteer of save our scruff, rehome & rescue i am acting as a representative of the organization and agree to act responsibly at all times by maintaining a professional demeanor and protecting the rescued animals from any harm while they are in my possession or care. Volunteers under 16 years of age require a parental or legal guardian to be in attendance and the guardian must also fill out a volunteer waiver. Volunteers over the age of 16 may volunteer without a parental guardian accompanying them, however parental or legal guardian consent is required (signing consent on this waiver below). Therefore, you must be 18 years or older to volunteer with the dogs, some exceptions can be made depending on the situation/volunteer opportunity. This waiver applies to any and all events that I attend as a volunteer for save our scruff, rehome & rescue. *
