I being the parent or legal guardian, hereby give my consent to allow my (son, daughter, ward) to perform volunteer services for the Cleveland Animal Protective League (hereinafter referred to as the "APL"), and in doing so, I fully understand and acknowledge that his/her services are to be performed in compliance with all of the APL’s rules and regulations, which may be established from time to time by the APL. I understand that failure to do so may result in his/her immediate termination as a volunteer. I acknowledge that my (son’s/daughter’s/ward’s) services are provided strictly on a volunteer basis, without any pay of any kind, and without liability of any nature on behalf of the APL. All services will be performed at his/her own risk. I recognize that in handling animals and performing other volunteer tasks there exists a risk of injury, exposure to zoonotic diseases (i.e. ringworm, giardia, rabies, etc.), and physical harm.
On behalf of myself, my (son, daughter, ward), my heirs, my personal representatives of administrators, I hereby
Release and discharge the APL, its agents, servants, employees, and Board members from any and all claims, causes of action, or demands, or any nature or cause, based on damages or injuries which may be incurred or sustained by him/her in any way connected with his/her services for the APL, including but not limited to animal bites, zoonotic diseases (i.e. ringworm, giardia, toxoplasmosis, rabies, etc.), accidents, or injuries. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the APL for its costs and attorney fees incurred in defending against any such claims, causes of action, and demands.
