THE FINE PRINT:  As a volunteer transport coordinator, I am dependent on what the senders tell me about our passengers' temperaments.  The very nature of rescue transport creates some risk for those who participate in it; even a good-natured dog may find it stressful to be passed from stranger to stranger and cooped up with unfamiliar dogs, and in consequence may act in uncharacteristic ways.  Neither I nor Open Arms Pound Rescue can accept liability for any accidents or incidents that may occur during the transport.
