HSSW Volunteer Policy and Agreement


We're excited that you've decided to volunteer at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington. The shelter could not function without the support of our nearly 800 dedicated volunteers. The first step to becoming a volunteer is to complete this application starting with reading and signing the Volunteer Policy below. Our rules are intended to protect you and the animals. At orientation, we'll explain in greater detail why it's essential that everyone follow HSSW rules. 

If at any time you have questions or need further information, please don't hesitate to contact Volunteer Services. Thank you again for taking the time to apply.

By checking the box below, I certify that all statements in this volunteer application are true and have been given voluntarily.

I understand that my participation in any of the above named volunteer positions is strictly on a volunteer basis and that volunteers are not classified as employees, agents or servants of the Humane Society for Southwest Washington (HSSW) and thus any injuries I might sustain during the course of my volunteer activities are not entitled to coverage under the HSSW's worker’s compensation policy. I agree to release and hold harmless the HSSW from and against any and all loss, damage, claims, liability, costs and expenses of any nature whatsoever, including without limitation, attorney’s fees and disbursements, arising from or occasioned by my participation in the HSSW volunteer program.

I understand there are certain risks inherent in handling animals and/or handling donated items in a retail/resale environment, and I accept these risks.

I understand that my volunteer service is an integral part of the daily operations of the shelter and/or thrift store. I agree to the best of my ability to fulfill the weekly and monthly service commitment requested by the HSSW. I agree to notify the Volunteer Office immediately of any schedule changes or if I wish to discontinue my volunteer services.

I agree to abide by the HSSW's harassment policies at all times, and not to participate in bullying of any kind.

I agree to refrain from gossip during my tenure as a volunteer of the Humane Society for Southwest Washington.
