To help increase adoptions and exposure for adoptable pets, Petfinder sends your pets to many other website partners and our API users.
These include sites that have adoptable pet searches which feature only Petfinder pets such as Petco, as well as sites that feature Petfinder pets alongside pets uploaded by individuals like the site eBay Classifieds.
API Users are partners who create more customized interfaces with our data, including major national sites such as The Shelter Pet Project as well as individual developers who work on smaller sites with less traffic.
You do have the option to opt-in or out of these exports by signing in to your account and going to the Organization Info tab. Here you can check one or more of the boxes under Share Pet List for which type of sites you would like to share data with.
