Puuurrfect: Uber Will Deliver Adorable Kittens To You For National Cat Day

The Pennsylvania SPCA is teaming up with Uber
to celebrate National Cat Day, TODAY: Thursday, October 29, by bringing
playdates back, this time providing offices throughout Philadelphia with
the opportunity to book kitten playdates by using the Uber smartphone app.

 Beginning at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Uber users in Philadelphia (including Center City, Old City, the Navy Yard, University City and more) can open the Uber
app, slide over to KITTENS and request 15 minutes of “purrfect”
playtime for $30, delivered from a car that will be carrying adoptable
kittens. Every dollar earned from the event will be directly donated to
the Pennsylvania SPCA and their lifesaving mission.

 “After the success of UberPUPPIES this
summer, we decided to target cat enthusiasts for our second promotion,
introducing UberKITTENS,” said Jon Feldman, general manager of Uber
Philadelphia. “These kitten playdates are a fun and engaging way to
raise money and awareness for a worthy cause, and we’re excited to once
again use the power of our platform to connect pet lovers to kittens in
need of a forever home.”

Here’s how it works:
1.       Open the app from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, October 29
2.       Request the KITTENS option. Please note: Kittens can only be delivered to offices, no private residences will be accepted
3.       Once
the kittens arrive, requesters will get to enjoy 15 minutes of kitten
cuteness. PRO TIP: Make sure to have an enclosed space ready for kitten
playtime and make sure no other animals are in the area
4.       Found
your new furry family member? All kittens are eligible for adoption at
the Pennsylvania SPCA Fishtown location, 1546 Frankford Avenue, from 3-7
p.m.
At 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, October 29, the kittens will be loaded into the Uber cars in the side lot at the Pennsylvania SPCA’s headquarters at 350. E. Erie Avenue. 
or those unable to partake in the Uber
playdates, the Pennsylvania SPCA will host a series of Halloween-themed
events at all three locations on Saturday, October 31, 2015. Along with
family-friendly activities, a select cast of characters will be
available for discounted adoption fees. For more information, visit www.pspca.org. All pixs provided by Uber.
