In particular, I fully understand that TFTC expects high standards of moral and ethical treatment of the animals under its care. I will adhere strictly to these standards in my capacity as a Volunteer.


  1. I understand that the handling of animals and other Volunteer activities on behalf of Tails From The City (“TFTC”) may place me in a hazardous situation and could result in injury to me or my personal property. On behalf of myself, and my heirs, personal representatives and assigns, I hereby release, discharge, indemnify, and hold harmless TFTC and its directors, officers, employees, and agents from any and all claims, causes of action and demands of any nature, whether known or unknown, arising out of or in connection with my Volunteer activities on behalf of TFTC.
