General Options

Petfinder API key, Petfinder API secret: you can find these values under your account at Petfinder.com. Please set these keys first, otherwise plugin won’t work.

WP Petfinder Cache: will significantly speed up API calls by caching results using local database. If you are using third party caching plugins such as WP Total Cache, Redis Object Catche, etc – you can turn this option Off. Otherwise keep it On.

Turn Off permalinks: enable it, if you are getting empty page instead of animal details page.

Animal details page: users will be redirected to this page when they click animal profile in search results.

Cat adoption page: redirect to this page if user clicks Adopt me button on cat’s page. Can be the same as below.

Dog adoption page: redirect to this page if user clicks Adopt me button on dog’s page. Can be the same as above.

I'm moving a site that used the old Petfinder API over to WordPress, and this plugin saved me all of the trouble. Took a little big of figuring out with the shortcodes and setting up separate pages, but in the end it's a fantastic setup.
