I understand that the completion of this application is not a guarantee that I WILL transport a SCD dog. I understand that any dog I transport for Saving Carolina Dogs Rescue and Adoption Network is the legal property of SCD, and my role is that of a volunteer.
I understand that I do not have the legal right to withhold any SCD dog I am transporting or overnighting, and I do not have the legal right to change the transport arrangements, destination, or choice of foster of adoptive family for any SCD dog I am transporting or overnighting. I understand that any attempt by myself or at my direction to do so will result in the authorities being contacted and I will be held responsible for any expenses incurred by SCD as a result of my actions.
I understand that the very nature of animal rescue transport creates some risk for those who participate, and even a good natured animal may find it a stressful situation and therefore, may act in uncharacteristic ways, that the nature of the transport process can cause previously unknown health/behavior problems to surface, and that I am highly encouraged to crate the SCD dog I am transporting, and/or keep the dog(s) tethered AT ALL TIMES.
I understand that no one associated with any SCD transport I participate with can accept liability, financial or otherwise, for any accidents or incidents that may occur during transport or overnighting. By volunteering for transport or overnighting, I acknowledge that risks are involved and I agree to not hold anyone involved responsible financially or otherwise should an incident occur.
I understand that this application may be withdrawn at any time by either myself or by Saving Carolina Dogs Rescue and Adoption Network, with the sole exception being if I am in physical possession of a SCD dog, in which case, I will be responsible to turn over said dog in safe and healthy condition to a SCD representative by arrangement with a Saving Carolina Dogs Rescue and Adoption Network director or officer.
