Hi,

 

This might be a silly question, but how does the transport system work? We are willing to do whatever is necessary, but how do you get in touch with us if you need our help? By email, or by phone number? Obviously, you have our email address, but I hesitate to put our phone number on a public forum. However, I certainly would give it to the moderator or to whoever is in charge of the transport system.

 

We've never been involved in transporting any animals before, so apologies for what might be a stupid question.

Generally, people would get in touch with you by sending you a PM (private message) through this board. Look at the upper right of your screen. See where it says "0 New Messages"? If someone has sent you a private message it will show up there ("1 New Message"), and you would click on that to read it.
