I (printed and signed below) understand that I am asking to be allowed to Foster and/or volunteer my time with the animal rescue known as Little Orphan's Animal Rescue, Inc (LOAR). I understand that I will be working with unfamiliar, abused, neglected, and/or scared animals that are strangers to me and I to them. I fully understand that there are many risks involved in handling these animals.

I acknowledge it has been explained to me that any animal has the potential to hurt, bite, scratch, mail, disfigure, and even fatally injure a person. Animal bites must be reported to LOAR.

Therefore I (the below signed) do agree to assume all risk of injury or harm to myself or to my property and agree to release, indemnify, defend and forever discharge LOAR and it's staff, employees, and agents of and from any liability, claims, demands, costs, expenses, actions, and causes of action (collectively, the "claims") in respect to death, injury, loss or damage to myself or my personal property, howsoever caused, arising or to arise by reason of my volunteering at LOAR.

I further state that I have my own health insurance and am fully insured for any medical emergency that I may encounter while volunteering for LOAR in any capacity.

The consent/release of liability/notice form is valid until specifically revoked by me via a written notice to LOAR.
