Following the HUGE success of UberKITTENS in the US, we were inundated with requests from riders and some amazing local shelters to bring it to our shores so we could share the kitten love and spread the word about the importance of finding much needed homes for our furry friends. So, we’re excited to announce that:
TODAY – UBER IS DELIVERING KITTENS ON DEMAND IN AUSTRALIA!
HOW IT WORKS
- Download the Uber app
- Request the ‘KITTENS’ option in your app between 12pm and 4pm (local time)
- If kittens are available, you will get to enjoy 15 minutes of kitten cuteness delivered to your office, your sweetheart or even your favourite cat lady!
THE BEST PART!
UberKITTENS is for a great cause!
For only $40 you get to:
- Snuggle with kittens for 15 minutes
- Help raise funds and awareness of the desperate need for pet adoption
- Receive an adorable #UberKITTENS gift bag
Every dollar donated during kitten visits goes directly to the participating shelter in your city:
BRISBANE & GOLD COAST
Animal Welfare League Queensland
GEELONG & MELBOURNE
Lort Smith Adoption Centre
Cat Protection Society
ALL THE CUTE DETAILS
- PRESS BUTTON, SAY “AAAW!”
UberKITTENS will be available for on demand snuggles on Thursday, 5th February from 12pm – 4pm (local time) nationally
- DEMAND FOR KITTENS WILL BE HIGH & AVAILABILITY LIMITED
It may take multiple tries to find available kittens. Please be patient! We’ll be working all day to deliver as many kitten snuggles as possible.
- NO CASH REQUIRED!
Donations for kitten cuddles will be charged directly to your Uber account. You can encourage your friends or colleagues to donate also by using the ‘SPLIT FARE’ feature in the Uber app. A shelter representative will be available for additional donations during the visit.
- BE SURE TO KITTEN-PROOF!
All successful requesters will be subject to a series of screening questions for kitten safety. We need to make sure your boss, landlord or neighbour is going to be cool with the adorable, unmissable meows (and that no one in the area is allergic). Also, having a dedicated room for kitten cuddles is essential.
- UBER, CAN I KEEP IT?
You will have a chance to adopt the kittens! YES, IT’S TRUE! For more information, please speak to the shelter representative or grab an adoption pack.
Share your purrrrfect posts and watch the kitten cuteness unfold on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #UBERKITTENS
