RescueGroups.org is very excited to announce the availability of a new Advanced Programming Interface (API) using the HTTP/JSON protocol. Our HTTP API is currently being used on production websites, however it is still in BETA form.
The RescueGroups.org HTTP/JSON API provides access to both public and private data. Not all objects are available via this API, however, in the very near future we will be expanding the HTTP/JSON API to provide update access to all of our data structures.
The HTTP/JSON API is designed to work with live queries from your website. That means you don't have to store any information on your side! The HTTP/JSON API handles multiple search criteria including postal code, radius/distance, specific organizations, and any of our animal fields.
Please review the HTTP/JSON API documentation for additional information about the API.
Please contact us if you'd like to discuss the HTTP/JSON API and your project! We're always happy to help.
