SWLA PET FOOD PANTRY WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY

All food distributed by SWLA Pet Food Pantry is obtained through donation. Some food may be past expiration or opened. By accepting food from SWLA Pet Food Pantry and feeding it to their pets, recipients acknowledge that they are aware of the risk involved in accepting opened or expired food and will not hold SWLA Pet Food Pantry or its affiliates responsible should any harm or illness to their pets as a result of feeding them donated food. SWLA Pet Food Pantry will never knowingly distribute food that has been recalled, although recalls may occur after donated food has been distributed. Once donated food is in the possession of the recipient, it is the recipient’s responsibility to check and track for recalls. SWLA Pet Food Pantry and its affiliates are not responsible for recalled food.

I AM VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THE AFOREMENTIONED PET FOOD DONATION PROGRAM AND AM ACCEPTING FOOD FROM SWLA PET FOOD PANTRY ENTIRELY AT MY OWN RISK.

I agree to hold harmless SWLA Pet Food Pantry and its affiliates against any and all claims, suits or actions of any kind whatsoever for liability, damages, compensation or otherwise brought by me or anyone on my behalf, including attorney’s fees and any related costs if litigation arises pursuant to any claims made by me or by anyone else’s action on my behalf. If SWLA Pet Food Pantry and its affiliates incur any of these types of expenses, I agree to reimburse SWLA Pet Food Pantry and its affiliates.

I acknowledge that SWLA Pet Food Pantry and its affiliates and their directors, officers, volunteers, representatives, and agents are not responsible for errors, omissions, acts or failures to act of any party or entity working on the behalf of SWLA Pet Food Pantry.

I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS “WAIVER AND RELEASE” AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY. I EXPRESSLY AGREE TO RELEASE AND DISCHARGE SWLA PET  FOOD PANTRY AND ALL OF ITS AFFILIATES, MANAGERS, MEMBERS, AGENTS, ATTORNEYS, STAFF, VOLUNTEERS, HEIRS, REPRESENTATIVES, PREDECESSORS, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR CAUSES OF ACTION AND I AGREE TO VOLUNTARILY GIVE UP OR WAIVE ANY RIGHT THAT I OTHERWISE HAVE TO BRING A LEGAL ACTION AGAINST SWLA PET FOOD PANTRY AND ITS AFFILIATES (CATS OF CHASE LOUISIANA) FOR PERSONAL INJURY OR INJURY TO MY PET.

To the extent that statue or case law does not prohibit releases for negligence, this release is also for negligence on the part of SWLA Pet Food Pantry and its affiliates, its agents, and volunteers. In the event that my pet should require medical care or treatment, I agree to be financially responsible for any costs incurred as a result of such treatment.
