rescuegroupsorg says:Not all adoptable pet data APIs are made equal! Choosing the right API service is more than just numbers... you also need to consider reliability, functionality, restrictions, terms of service and support.
Our APIs (both a REST and SOAP API), which have been in use since 2006, are very different than any other adoptable pet API. Here are just a few reasons why:
Completely free of logos or advertisements (like pet health insurance)
No requirement to say "powered by" (we're truly doing this ONLY for the pets)
No limitations on total requests, records per request, or the number of results, etc.
No overly complex and unnecessary tokens, signing, or 3rd party protocols
Supported and managed by in-house staff, not contractors -- skip the Tier 1 support and talk directly to the developers!
Updated and expanded on a regular basis
Please see our API Comparison page for additional reasons the RescueGroups.org API is your best choice for a community-focused partnership.
Our API includes dozens of data fields not found anywhere else -- fields like color, pattern, and animal specific location are just a few. The organization data includes fields like adoption process, the areas they serve, website URL, and facebook URL to name just a few.
Please contact us for more information concerning either of our APIs.
