***DISCLAIMER***
Any agreement to volunteer transport or temp foster/overnight is your 
acknowledgement of the understanding that every dog or animal being transported 
reacts differently when being transported, and that animals, by nature are 
unpredictable. Agreement to transport is an agreement that you are aware of the 
associated risks that could be present in a transport. Dogs and animals in 
general may, without warning, bite or cause injury to humans, other dogs, other 
animals, or even potentially cause damage to personal property. Your agreement 
to be a volunteer transporter, is an acknowledgement and understanding that 
there are certain risks involved in participating in volunteer transport, 
including but not limited to dog fights, bites to humans or other dogs or 
animals, the transmission of disease, and damage or destruction of personal 
property. Note that all animals being transported are accompanied by a health 
certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian and
 accompanying vaccination record, and that this is the full extent that anyone 
can attest to health of transport animal(s).
By agreeing to transport and/or overnight an animal on a volunteer transport, 
you are agreeing that you recognize these risks of injury and disease and 
release the volunteer transport coordinator(s), sending or receiving 
individual(s), shelter(s) or rescue(s), and fellow volunteer transporter(s) 
from any liability for any accidents or incidents related to bites, injuries, 
property damage, or illness (human or animal), that may occur immediately 
before transport, during transport, during an overnight stay on a transport, or 
upon or following arrival of dog or animal being transported. Additionally, the 
transport coordinator volunteer is dependent upon information received from a 
sender, or shelter or rescue, and cannot be held liable or responsible in any 
way for any information conveyed about a dog that may be incorrect regarding 
behavior or temperament of a transported animal before, during, or after 
transport.
**COMMITMENT TO DRIVING**
Do not volunteer to drive if you are not committed to showing up on timeon 
transport day. Relay transports cannot operate if there is a missing link in 
the chain, and the rescue animals suffer as a result. If an emergency arises 
that prevents you from driving you must notify the transport coordinator as 
soon as possible. Please be respectful of the entire team that has been 
assembled.
*ADOPTION OFF TRANSPORT*
Removing an animal from a transport before it has reached the final destination 
indicated on this run sheet constitutes theftin all 50 states and will be 
reported to local, state, or federal law enforcement agencies. In addition, 
your name will be publicized on "Do Not Transport" lists that are widely 
circulated in the rescue and transport communities.

+++IMPORTANT -- ALL TRANSPORT DRIVERS PLEASE READ+++
The info below will tell you WHY you need to know who you are driving for and 
where dogs are being sent.
Engineers, don't just sign up to help on a transport without doing your 
homework first. Gone are the days where you can volunteer to drive (in blind 
faith) on any transport that just happens to land in your inbox. 
If you are considering driving on a transport, make sure you know who the 
coordinator is. If you don't recognize their name, ask around. Dig up 
information. Google their name and email address. You want to make sure you are 
driving for areputable coordinator- one with integrity, not some fly-by-night 
person posing as a coordinator who is going to use you to unwittingly help send 
dogs into unthinkable situations. Find out who this "coordinator" is - the 
rescue world is a small world - everybody knows everyone or at least knows 
about them. ASK AROUND before signing up to drive.
Another thing to look for..... if the name of the receiving rescue AND their 
website isn't provided on the transport sheet for you to see, **RED FLAG**! Ask 
questions of the "coordinator" and do not let them off the hook without being 
provided with all the information you need to check into the receiving rescue. 
Google the receiving rescue. Ask other people in rescue (and other coordinators 
whom you trust) about the receiving rescue. Check DNA sites.
Go to the receiving rescue's web page. Read about their adoption policies, etc. 
Do they spay/neuter BEFORE they adopt out? Do they interview and do background 
& reference checks on potential adopters? Do they require a home visit for 
fosters and adopters? Or is it simply "cash and carry"? Do they seem genuinely 
in it for the dogs....or do you get the impression they are more interested in 
the adoption fee? Where are the rescued dogs living as they wait to be adopted 
- in foster homes or in a barn or a shed on their property? Look at the 
pictures of the dogs on their site. Do they look happy and in good shape? Look 
at the images in the backgroundof the pictures - do you see things like crates 
stacked on top of crates, clutter, and dirty food bowls?
You could even take it a step further and email the receiving rescue and ask 
them to provide the name, address and phone number of the vet they use. Then, 
contact the clinic and ask them if they would recommend this rescue group? 
You'd be surprised what you can find out. BTW, all reputable coordinatorsdo 
this as part of their screening process for rescues they work with.
Finally, ask yourself....WOULD I SEND A DOG I LOVE TO THIS RESCUE?
ONLY DRIVE TRANSPORTS FOR RESCUE GROUPS WITH UPSTANDING REPUTATIONS. PERIOD.
Also, please don't automatically crosspost transport run sheets unless you have 
deemed it a safe and worthy transport. In other words, read through the run 
sheet first, paying attention to the name of the coordinator and the receiving 
rescue. Don't pass it along if you see any red flags. If you're not sure 
whether something is a red flag, contact a coordinator you trust and find out.
If anything makes you uneasy about the transport - DO NOT VOLUNTEER TO DRIVE 
and speak up!
There are evil people out there just waiting to get their hands on FREE DOGS! 
Especially when the dogs can now be delivered right to their doorstep!
Please, please, please critically evaluate transports that you volunteer to 
drive for by looking at clues in the transport request/run sheet.
DO NOT drive a transport for an unaltered dog to a private adopter.
DO NOT drive a transport for a dog going to a rescue that you have heard 
questionable things about.
DO NOT drive a transport for a coordinator that other coordinators warn you 
about.
Everyone wants to help a shelter dog, but please ask yourself if such a move is 
truly in the best interest of the animal. As cruel as it sounds, there really 
is a fate much worse than euthanasia in a shelter.
All the details of a responsible transport should be available to the volunteer 
drivers to protect them from helping a dog into a fate worse than death.
