Get Your Pet API

Get Your Pet is an online, direct pet adoption community where people who want to adopt a pet connect with people who need to rehome a dog or cat. Rehoming a dog or a cat keeps them out of shelters, which is the best way to save a beloved pet.

The API exposes a subset of Get Your Pet's platform functionality to partners through a JSON-based Web API. Currently, the functionality is limited to searching for and looking up the details of pets available for adoption on getyourpet.com.

Requests will be authenticated if they include a valid API key and if they originate from a whitelisted IP address. Once provided with an API key, include it with API requests by adding an HTTP request header with the name API-key.

To obtain an API key, please please send an email to support@getyourpet.com and include and the following:
  • your name
  • the name and address of your organization
  • your phone number
  • the domain name of the web site or the name of the app that will use the API
  • a brief description of how you intend to use the API
