1. I acknowledge that animal rescue operations entail known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or
emotional injury, paralysis, death to myself and other persons, and also property damage. Risks include, among
other things: bites, scratches, torn skin, bruises, and damaged clothing or other property. I understand that such
risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.
2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity or as a result of contact
with or adoption of an animal. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite
of the risks.
3. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Angel's Wish, Inc. from any
and all claims, demands, or causes of action which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity,
my use of their equipment or facilities, my adopting an animal, or my volunteering at this animal rescue operation,
arising from negligence. This release does not apply to claims arising from gross negligence or intentional conduct.
Should Angel's Wish, Inc. or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce
this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.
4. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or
else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage to myself.
5. In the event that I file a lawsuit, I agree to do so solely in the state of Wisconsin, and further agree that the
substantive law of Wisconsin shall apply in this action.

in full force and effect.
By signing this document, I agree that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation in this activity, I
may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against the parties being released on the
basis of any claim for negligence from which I have released them herein.
I have had sufficient time to read this entire document, understand its contents, and I agree to be bound by its terms.
I certify that the statements made in this volunteer application are true and have been given voluntarily. I understand
that this information will be held in the strictest confidence, and I release Angel’s Wish, Inc. from any liability
whatsoever for supplying such information. I also understand that I will not be paid for my services as a volunteer.
I give Angel’s Wish, Inc. permission to verify the credentials that I have presented, such as driver’s license, DMV records,
and/or medical licenses.
I understand that any and all foster animals in my care while I am volunteering belong to Angel’s Wish, Inc. and must be
returned to their adoption coordinator immediately upon request.
