Disclosure and Release Clause:
I, the undersigned, do hereby declare that I am aware:
that animals are different from human beings in their response to human actions;
that the actions of animals are often unpredictable;
that animals should be closely supervised when they are with children;
that an animal's behavior may change after it leaves the shelter and accustoms itself to a home or other different environment;
that Safe Haven of Iowa County makes no claims or representations as to the temperament, health or mental disposition of any animal put up for adoption
that Safe Haven is not held liable for conditions arising from the adoption of an animal. THE ADOPTING FAMILY DOES HEREBY RELEASE, DISCHARGE AND HOLD HARMLESS SAFE HAVEN of IOWA COUNTY AND ANY PERSON, FIRM OR CORPORATION CHARGED OR CHARGEABLE WITH LIABILITY TOGETHER WITH THEIR HEIRS, ADMINISTRATORS, EXECUTORS, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DAMAGES, COSTS, EXPENSES, LOSS OF SERVICES, ACTIONS OR CAUSES OF ACTION, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, BELONGING TO THE FAMILY DUE TO ANY ACTION OR OCCURRENCE ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE ADOPTION OF A PET FROM SAFE HAVEN.
This animal will be cared for and treated with love and respect. I agree to assume full responsibility for its well-being, including providing adequate and wholesome food, fresh water, shelter from the weather and any veterinary treatment needed to provide continued health and well-being of the animal.
Dogs will not be kept on a chain because of the health hazards that may occur, the lack of exercise chains prevent and the potential dangers it may cause such as teasing and being trapped with no escape.
Dogs will not be solely used as hunting or guard dogs. Cats will not be used solely as barn cats or mousers.
I agree to abide by all city and county animal control ordinances, specifically any leash laws to prevent the animal from roaming and becoming a nuisance animal.
It is expressly understood that such animal is NOT to be sold, traded, or given away for any purpose. It is not to be abandoned. It is not to be used for experimentation, resold to a lab or treated in any other inhumane way. If I cannot provide for the animal any longer, I will return it to Safe Haven of Iowa County.
Adopter agrees that, without liability, Safe Haven of Iowa County may investigate the adopter’s home and the conditions under which the animal is being kept, and may take possession of the animal, if in the opinion of Safe Have of Iowa County, it is receiving less than adequate care, is being improperly housed or handled, or if any other condition of this contract is being or has been violated. In the event the adopter fails or refuses to return such an animal upon demand, the adopter hereby agrees to pay reasonable attorney’s fees in the event an attorney is consulted or if suit is brought for the return of the animal. The adopter acknowledges reading and understanding all policies within this contract and accepts this animal as a pet and companion, and willfully accepts the terms outlines within this legally binding agreement.
