I understand that the behavior of domestic animals is sometimes unpredictable and that some domestic animals are capable of inflicting serious personal injury or death, as well as extensive property damage. Knowing the risks of handling domestic animals, I agree to assume those risks and to release, indemnify, and hold harmless the Brown County Humane Society and/or its officials, directors, supervisors, employees for any and all personal injury and property damages resulting from my volunteer work. I understand that I will be trained according to my volunteer interests and the documentation will be kept as I progress through training.
