If you have registered as a walker to this event, please read the following release and agree to the terms and conditions below:

Waiver and Release of Liability and Indemnification
Please read this form carefully and be aware that in consideration for participation in this event, you will be expressly assuming the risk and legal liability and WAIVING and RELEASING all claims for injuries, damages or loss which you or your dog(s) might sustain as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with and associated with this event.

Warning of Risk
Dog activities are intended to provide a fun and rewarding experience for a dog(s) and its owner. However, despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury, including death to either the dog(s) or its owner. Certain inherent risks include the propensity of any dog to behave in dangerous ways that may result in injury to another patron or dog(s). Other risks include, but are not limited to the inexperience, negligence or irresponsibility of a dog owner; the inability to predict a dog’s reaction to sound, movements, objects, persons, or other animals; and actions by the dog(s) due to fright, anger, stress, insect bites, or natural reactions such as jumping, pulling, resisting and biting. Other risks include the hazards associated with environmental and traffic conditions, acts of God, inclement weather, slipping, falling, and/or premises defects.

I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury to the dog(s) and its owner in association with participating in dog activities, and I voluntarily agree to assume the full risk of any injuries, damages or loss, regardless of severity, that I or my dog(s) might sustain as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with or associated with this event. I do hereby agree to waive, relinquish, release and forever discharge Rochester Hope for Pets including its owners, partners, and volunteers from any and all claims for injuries, damages or loss that I or my dog(s) may have or which may accrue to me and arising out of, connected with, or in any way associated with this event. I have read and fully understand the above important information, warning of risk, assumption of risk and waiver and release of all claims.

I, the undersigned, am executing the following Waiver and Release of Liability and Indemnification Release as a participant in the Dog Walk offered at Highland Park, Ellison Park, Rochester, NY 14625 hosted by Rochester Hope for Pets. By signing below, I, as a participant, expressly understand, assume and consent to all the terms, conditions and risks set forth herein. Also I do not hold Rochester Hope for Pets owners, partners, and volunteers liable for any such risk as illness, injury, paralysis, death and/or other losses and damages sustained by me or my dog(s) arising out of or in connection with the participation in the Dog Walk hosted by Rochester Hope for Pets.

I, the undersigned acknowledge that my dog(s) has received and is current on all of the necessary vaccinations, including the rabies vaccine.
