Rescue Volunteer Agreement
for Rescued Newfoundlands
I, the undersigned, state that I have read, understand and agree to abide by the conditions of this Rescue Volunteer Agreement during the period of time a Rescued Newfoundland is in my care.
I/we will accept the responsibility of providing top quality food, shelter, nurturing and socialization for a Rescued Newfoundland.
I/we understand that in accepting a Rescued Newfoundland for care, I/we remain solely responsible for the health of my/our family, my/our pets, others who come into contact with this Rescued Newfoundland and myself/ourselves.
While a Rescued Newfoundland is in my/our possession, you are liable for any property damages or expenses caused by or incurred as a result of the care of the Rescued Newfoundland.
The Rescued Newfoundland will reside inside my/our home. At no time will a Rescued Newfoundland be allowed to run without restraints, unless in a fenced area and supervised by me/us.
At no time will a Rescued Newfoundland be chained outside or kept in a pen outdoors.
I/we will provide a safe and sanitary environment for a Rescued Newfoundland at all times.
I/we agree to accept all responsibility for the behavior of a Rescued Newfoundland chosen for placement in my/our home.
I/we will provide an enclosed yard, preferably chain link or wooden fencing, to protect a Rescued Newfoundland from intruders, human or otherwise.
A Rescued Newfoundland may be removed from my/our custody at any time with cause.
I/we agree that prospective adoptive families will be permitted to come to my/our home to meet a Rescued Newfoundland being fostered.
I/we will be responsible for any and all legal fees incurred if a violation of this agreement results in a legal suit.
Release of Liability and Indemnification
Thank you for your interest to help with Newfoundland dog rescue efforts. You may be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire which is designed to assess your suitability for the different types of help that is needed for a rescued Newf--i.e., foster care, transport, grooming, etc. Your decision to assist with rescuing Newfs should be based on a desire to help a dog in need. We usually don’t have puppies and very seldom have dogs two years old or younger. The average age of a rescued Newf tends to be three to seven - occasionally even older.
Please answer all questions as completely and truthfully as you can. You will not be rejected on the basis of your answers.
