Pets

Description

With this plugin you can manage any WordPress site with Pets.

With the custom Fields Manager, you can add as many fields as you need for your own pets.

This plugin comes with 2 custom taxonomies: Breed and Colors.

If you want to accept donation, this plugin integrates with Give, a plugin for donations. People can choose to donate to all your pets or only to one.

Current Features:

  • Managing Pets
  • Two Taxonomies (Breed and Color)
  • Custom Fields & Sections
  • Archive Search Form
  • Archive Grid Layout
  • Widgets
  • Shortcodes

Shortcodes:

[pets_single id=0 image=true info=true] (Set image or info to false)

[pets_petfinder] – Show the Petfinder search from and animals. Check https://www.petfinder.com/developers/v2/docs/#get-animals for all attributes.

[pets_archive] – Display anywhere. Attributes: limit – number of pets per page, filter – which fields to use to filter the pets, filter_value – which values should a filter have, hide_nav – if set to 1, it will hide navigation, orderby – if set, it will use that to order

Example:

[pets_archive filter=adoptable filter_value=0] -> Will show every pet that is not adoptable, filter ‘adoptable’ is the field slug.
[pets_archive filter=adoptable,height filter_value=1,20] -> Will show every pet that is adoptable, with height of 20 (field slugs are adoptable and height)
[pets_archive orderby=rand hide_nav=1 limit=10] -> Show 10 random pets without navigation

Roadmap (planned features):

  • Supplies you need for your pets (integrated with Give)
  • Favorites
  • Partners (such as Vet stations)
  • Activities (people can take a dog from shelter for a walk in the park)
  • Found/Lost Pets
  • Integration with various APIs such as PetFinder
  • Better Templates

You’re welcome to give your own ideas and features in the support forum.

There will be a PRO version with a few features. 90% of the money will go into buying supplies for the animal shelter near the contributor(s) location. 10% will be spent on processing fees.

Installation

  1. Install the Pets plugin from the WordPress Plugins Menu
  2. You can also install it by uploading the Pets zipped folder in wp-content/plugins/
  3. Activate it.

FAQ

My Give Form does not include pets. What to do?

Make sure you have set the donation form under Pets > Settings > Give.

Petfinder Search Form does not work

Please make sure to create the fields under Pets > Fields to match the Petfinder attributes found on https://www.petfinder.com/developers/v2/docs/#get-animals.

For example, for attribute status, create a field:

  • Name: Status (or any other)
  • slug: status (Important to be the same as attribute on Petfinder)
  • type: dropdown
  • options: Adoptable, Found, Adopted

Reviews

First, I am really enjoying exploring this plugin - and I think it will work perfect for the rescue group that I am involved with. I have one teenee-tiny question, which may not get an answer. With running a rescue, sometimes it is great to have particular information with adopted or soon to be adopted dogs profiles - such as Foster Carer details, even adoption details e.g. names and phone numbers. However, this information needs to be private - as in not displayed to the public. I know how to create the fields for this information, but I have no idea how to hide the information from being published on the front end. One easier way, maybe, would be to create this information in its own 'section' e.g. Foster Carer Info; and to be able to hide this entire section from publishing - or make it work with a user level, e.g. only editors and admins etc can see this information if logged in. Can anyone help please with this idea? This would be extremely handy for our rescue coordinators. Warm regards Have a safe and happy Christmas and an awesome New Year (for 2021)

I have used another plugin to display pets for rescue organizations for years, but decided to look into other options when that plugin wasn't yet ready for the new Petfinder API. I came across the Pets plugin and have been impressed with the developer's willingness to address user requests. Besides linking to Petfinder listings, the Pets plugin also offers other custom fields for organizations to feature their pets.
