Believing that the Joplin Humane Society has a real need of my services as a volunteer worker, I agree that I will follow the JHS’s policies for my own safety, the safety of the public, other staff, and the animals. Please read each statement, then initial on the line next to each one. Before volunteering at the shelter, I will attend General Orientation. If under 16, I must have an adult with me at all times who has also attended General Orientation session. I will only walk dogs after I have completed training and the dogs have had behavior assessments. I will not handle kittens or puppies without staff direction. I will not enter Stray Holding or the ICU unless directed by a staff member. I will not walk dogs that I feel are stronger than I can handle. I will wash my hands after handling individual animals. I will ask for guidance before giving out extra food and treats. If a dog relieves itself while I am with it, I will clean up the mess. I will sign in and out each time I volunteer. I will wear my personal identification badge while volunteering. I will not attempt to train an animal without guidance from the staff. I will never harshly discipline, raise my voice or hit an animal. I will dress appropriately and safely for animal care, in clothing that is comfortable, may get dirty, and will only wear close-toed shoes or sneakers and long pants. If bitten or scratched, I will wash the wound with soap and water and notify a supervisor immediately. I will accept supervision and direction from staff graciously. I will conduct myself with dignity, courtesy, and consideration. I will endeavor to make my work the highest quality. I will serve as a goodwill ambassador and interpreter for the JHS and its services in the community-at-large. I will take any problems, criticisms, or suggestions to JHS management. I will hold harmless the JHS for any injury to me or to others as well as for damage to mine or other’s property while I am volunteering. I acknowledge that I have read and agree to adhere to the above guidelines. I understand that the AARC reserves the right to terminate my volunteer status if I violate these guidelines. By signing this application, I am making a serious commitment to the Animal Adoption & Resource Centering its pursuits. Please e-sign this pledge with your first, last name, and date.
