I understand that I am not covered by workers’ compensation nor insured by Rockwall Pets during the performance of my volunteer duties including when driving a vehicle or transporting an animal.

4. As a volunteer, I may come into contact with and interact with animals, and such work entails risk of personal injury due to proximity to animals, long-distance driving, and other considerations. These include, but are not limited to, being bitten, clawed, tripped, and possibly exposed to zoonotic diseases. I understand and agree that as a volunteer I assume all risks of loss or injury, including death to myself or damage to my property while participating in the volunteer program. I understand the possible risk of bringing home illnesses to personal pets or vice versa and must have current vaccinations for animals at home. I understand that I must be current on my tetanus vaccination.
