Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Groups that help transport rescues?

    Anybody know of a website or facebook page for people who will help transport dogs? I have three that have to go to Greenville SC and one towards Durham, NC. I hope to continue to pull dogs from our shelter, so need to figure out the transport part.

    I was told you can find "professionals" on uship, but that it takes a long time and costs as much as flying a dog (about $275 in cargo, and $125 if it is "hand luggage").
    Perhaps some of the smaller horse shipping companies would be willing to accommodate a crate in the truck or tack room?
    Horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them.

      I know of the ones below, but like any group, make sure you check them out first. You do want to be careful. There have been issues with transporters stealing dogs, so just make sure whoever you're using has done background checks on their transporters.




      There's a group in Indiana too that I checked out for a rescue...but sounds like that's too far from you.

        i had one of my dogs flown for free from ohio to pa....mid ohio to phila area, so not just an over the state line jump...........
        angel "something" is their name..............pilots with their own small planes transport animals for free................do a search,or contact some rescues that may know who this group is...............i know there is more than one organization that does this

          I have no others to add, but did see a couple episodes about Freedom Train on the Animal Planet chanel. It's a highly organized group of volunteers who transport animals coming out of high-kill rate shelters throughout the south (mostly). It was very inspiring and I cried like a baby!

            You might try contacting Judy Bishop at jbishop_1@msn.com. I came in contact with her when we rescued two Akias from Missouri and had them shipped to Colorado to pick up.
            Moving on doesn't mean you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what happended and continue living.

              it's Pilots and Paws, a wonderful organization.
              I used to drive one leg for rescue groups in Canada and it was a very rewarding experience.
              Unfortunately, I can't afford to do it any more.
              I know someone who does it in SC and up the East Coast every other week. Maybe she could help you by getting you some contacts. I will ask her.

                Just sent you a PM!
                When life gives you lemons. . .say &%^# you lemons! And throw those lemons back in life's face so that it will be afraid of you and won't try that crap again!

                  I've driven Labs before, receiving requests through Lab rescue organizations in my area. If any of the dogs is of one particular breed, check here, http://www.akc.org/breeds/rescue.cfm#401 for the National rescue for that breed, and they may be able to help. Good luck!

                    Yikes, LauraKY!
                    I have done a lot of local rescue but just now getting into trying tio transport farther away.


                    • #11
                      I transport for Open Arms Pound Rescue. They take take dogs from kill shelters in KY, Tenn, Ohio and transport to rescues in Canada. It is very rewarding. I always find one dog on transport that I would like to keep.


                      • #12
                        Pooches on the Move might cover your area. They do have a fee associated with them. If you're transporting across state lines at all, please double check the import requirements of the state you're shipping to. I look at paperwork all the time for animals shipped into Maine where our regulations have been ignored. There will likely be standardization among the New England states soon. Earlier this month I treated a pup with parvo coming off a semi truck which had exposed countless dogs disbursed along the East coast.

                          There is a yahoo group called "On The Road Again' (maybe OTRA), that does volunteer relays for rescued pets. People each drive a 2 hr leg or so to get pet to new home.


                          • #14
                            OP if you're finding dogs that a breed rescue will take, contact your closest rescue for the breed. A lot of times they have a network of volunteers who can help transport. I know the collie rescue I volunteered with had transporters from Georgia and Tennessee to Illinois and New York.

                              They are no particular breed. having no luck so far. It isn't all that far, but i was hoping not to have to do it myself.

                                Shea'smom - I am picking up my girl tomorrow (!!!) & her foster mom seems to have a lot of NC rescue contacts. I'd be happy to ask her if she knows of anyone who would help if you like?
