As a volunteer for Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center…

1. I will uphold the standards and policies of Greenwood and the Volunteer Program. I understand that my failure to do so may result in my dismissal from the Volunteer Program.

2. I will conduct myself with dignity, courtesy and consideration and will endeavor to make my work of the highest quality.

3. I will be punctual and conscientious in the fulfillment of my duties. If for any reason I am unable to serve at the assigned time, I will notify my coordinator and try to exchange shifts with another volunteer.

4. I will follow proper procedure with any problems, criticisms and/or suggestions that I may have as stated in the Volunteer Manual.

5. I am aware that if I am accepted for a position that works with wildlife, there are certain risks inherent in working with wildlife, including scratches, bites, and zoonotic diseases.
