The WheresMyPet API is available for non-commercial use by outside developers. The current documentation only covers the read-only aspects of the API. The ability to read/write will is planned for a future release.
What can I do with the API?
The purpose of the WheresMyPet API is to allow developers to create something fun and useful with our site content. Some potential uses of pulling the data would be to create a desktop, iPhone/iPad or Facebook application. The potential of what can be created is pretty much infinite. If you come up with something, email us at
How can I use it?
You can retrieve information about posts and users by entering the URL and appending the XML format to the end. This works for most URLs on the site.
See below for more examples:
- XML feed of posts: http://wheresmypet.com/posts.xml (to see more results append the page parameter. For ex: http://wheresmypet.com/posts.xml?page=2)
- XML feed of a specific post: http://wheresmypet.com/posts/1.xml
- XML feed of a specific user: http://wheresmypet.com/users/tony.xml
