I understand that the scope of my relationship with PAWS is limited to a volunteer position and that no compensation is expected in return for services I provide. Furthermore, I understand that PAWS will not provide to me any benefits traditionally associated with employment, and that I am responsible for my own insurance coverage in the event of personal injury, illness, or property damage as a result of my activities with PAWS. 1. Assumption of Risk: I understand that my volunteer activities include work that may be hazardous to me, including but not limited to, handling frightened animals, being bitten, scratched, injured or frightened by animals, cleaning feces, urine and vomit, moving cages and crates, bending, stooping, and other activities involved in the handling and care of animals. As a volunteer, I hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in the activities and release PAWS from all liability of injury, illness, death, property damage or loss resulting directly or indirectly from the activities. 2. Insurance: Further, I understand that PAWS does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide me with financial or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health or disability benefits or insurance of any nature in the event of my injury, illness, death or damage to my property. I expressly waive any such claim for compensation or liability on the part of PAWS beyond what may be offered freely by PAWS in the event of such injury or medical expenses incurred by me. 3.
