I have a desire to volunteer, at no charge, and assist Four Peaks Foundation dba Four Peaks Animal Rescue in the care, treatment and housing of domestic animals and also in the educational programs and events involving domestic animals.
I am aware that such work involves exposure to domestic animals, possible disease, risk of physical injury, including but not limited to bites, scratches, actual attacks by domestic animals and the emotional trauma that my result from such injury.
Four Peaks Foundation dba Four Peaks Animal Rescue has taken every reasonable precaution but can not guarantee absolute safety in the handling of domestic animals either on its premises or any other housing facility; in the relocation of or rescue events or in any transportation of such animals due to their inherent nature.
