Please note: Edgewater Animal Shelter (EAS) does not guarantee hours and availability and application submission does not guarantee approval. EAS reserves the right to revoke volunteer privileges at any time, for any reason. To play with any animal unsupervised you must be 18 years of age or older and you must have permission of a shelter employee. No one may take a dog from the kennel without the permission of a shelter employee. Volunteers must be able to react quickly and rationally, as animals can sometimes be very unpredictable. Volunteers who work with animals must have the ability to restrain the animals for their own safety, the safety of others and the safety of the animals. EAS reserves the right to place volunteers in areas best suited to their abilities and restrictions, and to reject volunteers whose participation at events or programs sponsored by EAS could potentially place the participant, the animals or other individuals at risk of harm. If any equipment or property is lost/damaged and I am at fault, I agree to replace that equipment or property or to reimburse Edgewater Animal Shelter for its value. I hereby authorize Edgewater Animal Shelter to conduct a background investigation of me if required. I hereby agree to a physical examination (including testing for illegal drugs, controlled substances or alcohol) if necessary, at any time prior to or during my time as a volunteer. Such testing would be based on Federal, State, County, or City regulations.

PARENTAL CONSENT: I am the parent or legal guardian of the applicant, who is under 18 years of age and I hereby consent and agree to this volunteer application in every respect. I understand that before my child can volunteer I must complete a Hold Harmless agreement, in person, at the Edgewater Animal Shelter, located at 605 Mango Tree Dr, Edgewater FL 32132.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at EAS. We will be in touch soon!
