I, being the parent or legal guardian of (the “Minor”) hereby consent to and authorize the Minor to act as a volunteer for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. I agree and understand that the Minor must comply with the rules and regulations established by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and that failure to do so may result in the Minor’s immediate dismissal from the volunteer program.
I understand that the Minor is expected to:
o Commit to volunteering at least one day a week, for a minimum of 4 hours.
o Refrain from using all electronic devices, at all times, during their volunteer shift.
o Notify their point-of-contact in a timely manner if they will be absent from a shift.
o Track their time via the Volunteer Information Center computer.
o Always arrive for their shift wearing the assigned volunteer uniform.
o Refrain from smoking or vaping while on campus.
o Park their car (if applicable) in a designated parking spot.
o If you choose to post about PAARL on social media, the post must be positive and not include confidential information.
The Minor and I have received a copy of the Employee & Volunteer Handbook via email. We understand that it describes important information about volunteerism at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. We understand that we should consult the Volunteer Program Manager regarding any questions not answered in the handbook. We understand that it is the Minor’s responsibility to read and comply with the policies contained in the handbook and any revisions made to it. I also understand that when the Minor is working directly with animals there is an inherent risk of bites, scratches and exposure to zoonotic diseases.
We understand that all records, information, cruelty cases and ongoing investigations are to be kept strictly confidential. We further understand that records, information pertaining to clients, donors, staff and other volunteers is confidential in nature. Furthermore, the Minor will comply with all regulations, policies and procedures of the League, and understand that the Minor’s failure to do so will result in the dismissal from the volunteer program. I hereby, execute this release freely and voluntarily knowing the same is a legal document, and recognizing that I had the opportunity to seek legal counsel pertaining to this document.
