2 Advisors here to help

The purpose of this forum is NOT to post or coordinate transports but to mentor those who would like to learn how to utilize the "Ride Board: Animals Needing Transport" features. Volunteer mentors will do their best to answer your questions and share their knowledge and experience.

Florence,

If you are posting here and asking questions you are already logged in.

Instead of opening up this forum and open up the one that says Ride Board, Animals Needing Transport. Once you have that open, you will see NEW TOPIC on the upper left......click on that because you are requesting a NEW TOPIC which is a new transport request.

You must have your sending and receiving zip codes in order to post a request. It will ask you for those. Fill in your subject line with the sending and receiving city and state, then fill in your message part of the post and include your contact information and all the information about the animals needing transport. Then click submit at the bottom.

My guess is you are confused about the NEW TOPIC step in the process. You are just replying to topics already in this "help" part of the forum.

I hope you have it now, if not, we'll try again!

hi, i posted a request for a flight for a rescue dog, she is in a kill shelter on borrowed time, for a flight from huntington w.v.25213 area to huntsville al. 35950 or areas near, and made a mistake on the date and am having trouble changing it. it should read 11-10-10 on the title. also i would like to post if any commercial pilots might offer her a ride from either, charleston, wv., lexinton, ky, or cincinnati. cincinnati has a one stop flight to spokane wa. 99210 with the same plane that would be perfect with delta. the fair is too much to afford to fly her . can you help me get these requests posted correctly? thanks so much sandy rogers 208.772.3885 sjrogers@copper.net

Hi Sandy,
First of all, I am attaching step-by-step instructions on how to post trips. You need to decide on a definite pick-up point and a definite destination. It's hard to follow exactly what you are wanting to do with this dog. The shorter the trip, the easier it is going to be to get pilots to help you. Check out the instructions I've attached first.

To change the date on your posting, go to "View Your Posts" at the top of the forum page. Find the posting you want to change, then click on "edit" in red on the posting itself. You can make any changes you want. Then hit the "Submit" button. It will come back up with your edited post. Just one suggestion, though. Limiting yourself to one day will limit the help you will get. Can you give a range of days?

Let us know if you need any more help.

Christine,
Have you clicked on "other mapping options" and then on the pilot option and sent individual e-mails to pilots? I will e-mail you and try to help you.

Maria,
My suggestion would be to use one of the 2 cities you mention as both the "from & to" points and post the subject as "need foster for 3 days" or something similar.

Joanne

I gave bad advice-- :oops: Here is what I should have said:
..........it is fine to ask for volunteer fosters via PNP as long as you do it within your original requested topic or you can ask under the General Discussions forum by making a post there. By original request topic I mean the one you made for transport. Just hit reply to your own message and ask your question.

The reason for this is two fold. Every time you make a request on the Animals Needing Transport forum an automatic email gets sent to pilots along the route (if pilots have opted in for this feature). It also shows up as a transport request on our rescue transport map. We do not want any requests other then those for transport to be listed on that map or have unecessary emails sent to pilots.

Thank you all for you cooperation.

I have posted a need for a ride for a blind cocker spaniel, Las Vegas to Reno for the week of 3/7. I don't know how it ended up in the Done section, and I don't see how to change it. Should I just repost? Thank you!
