Volunteer Application

Dedication

We realize rescue work can be grueling, thankless, and less than glamorous – and emotionally challenging for anyone who engages in it. However, the thankful eyes of the animals we help continually serve as a reminder of the importance of our work. Without the efforts and commitment of our dedicated volunteers, many of these animals would continue to live in difficult situations, with many facing death on a regular basis. We hope you are touched by these animals as we have been and find your experience rewarding. For volunteers that go on outreach, you will be required to read our Outreach Guidelines, which we will provide when you join The Rescue Project as a volunteer.

Reliability

We ask that you notify us immediately if you are unable to attend a volunteer or outreach event that you have previously committed to. Our small teams depend on one another, and being a dependable team member is vital to the success of our mission.

Agreement & Release

I am requesting a volunteer position within The Rescue Project. I agree to read and follow the rules and guidelines of the organization. I agree to not hold any director, employee, board member, or any individual personally or otherwise responsible in the event that I sustain personal, financial, emotional, or property loss/damage while serving the organization. I agree to follow the supervision of all persons involved in volunteer management. I understand that as a volunteer I am an important representative of The Rescue Project, and must do my best to represent The Rescue Project in a manner that is consistent with its articles, by-laws, guidelines, and philosophies. Further, I understand that if I respond to a situation alone regarding an animal in need and take in the animal without the permission of the Foster Coordinator or Executive Director, The Rescue Project will not guarantee placement of the animal in their program, and I will be liable for its care and placement. I understand that if I go alone into the community on any type of outreach involving an animal without an “Outreach Lead”, I am representing myself only, and that I am at that time not acting as a member of The Rescue Project, and that The Rescue Project holds no liability in my actions.



I have read and understand the above volunteer release, and I agree to adhere to its entirety.
