The first thing you need to do is to pick a definite destination with zip code within the U.S. Then post your request under "Ride Board: Animals Needing Transport". PilotsNPaws is just a bulletin board. Pilots will be looking at helping with flights within their areas.
List the weight of the dog. That's important because certain planes cannot carry more than a certain amount of weight. The pilots need to know point of departure and who will be the contact person that is bringing the dog to the airport. Then they need to know who the contact person is at the receiving end. Contact information for all parties is needed, but that can come later after you have a pilot. It it is a long distance, say, over 300 miles, you will need to find several pilots to do multiple legs of a trip.
Once you post on the ride board, look above where your message appears and click on "Map This Request" which is in red. This will give you a listing of pilots who are based along your route. I have found it quicker to e-mail each pilot individually. Type out your first message giving pertinent details (city of departure to city of arrival and weight of dog), copy the message, then go to the next pilot's e-mail and paste that same message, then go to the next and do the same thing. I have sent out 20-30 e-mails sometimes before I get a response. Once in a great while will I find replies posted on my posting. You really have to be proactive and contact the pilots yourself.
IHope this helps,
