You have expressed an interest in becoming a foster home to help lost, abused, and abandoned cats on behalf of The Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC). As part of your fostering efforts you will come in direct and close contact with many cats whose propensities and personalities are unknown. These cats can be unpredictable and sometimes even dangerous. Many abandoned and abused cats become suddenly aggressive. Feline bites are not uncommon and are a constant and real risk at any time that you are near any HSWC cat. Such bites may require medical attention.
By agreeing to serve as a HSWC volunteer/foster home and by signing below you agree to assume all of the risks posed by being injured in any way while acting as a volunteer or even just while in the presence of cats which are in HSWC's custody. then you agree to release and hold harmless HSWC from any and all claims of any nature for personal injury or property damage and from any and all liability whatsoever including but not limited to liability for any medical expenses, pain and suffering, and from any permanent injury and/or disfigurement, which result either directly or indirectly from such cats, from cat bites or from any other cat- related incidents.
In addition, if you volunteer to transport any cat in HSWC custody including but not limited to transportation in your personal vehicle, then you agree to assume all risks associated with such transportation. You also agree to release and hold harmless HSWC from any and all claims or causes of action related in any way to such transportation including claims for injuries and property damage arising from automobile accidents. You further agree to properly restrain all cats that are traveling by car by either placing them in a appropriate carrier or by restricting their movement in the vehicle to ensure that they will not interfere with the operator of the automobile. Finally, you agree to maintain and automobile insurance policy which provides at least the minimum personal automobile liability coverage as required by the State of Tennessee at all times while transporting any cat in HSWC custody.
I agree that by typing my name above, it is the same as signing my name to this document.
