NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Ride-sharing service Uber delivered kittens to workplaces in over 50 cities across America Thursday, including Nashville.

Uber delivered kittens locally from the Williamson County Animal Control and Adoption Center between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

“The demand for kittens is very high and we are looking to spread as much joy and kitten love as possible,” explained Luke Marklin, Uber Nashville GM.

The service cost $30 for a 15 minute visit with a kitten that is ready to be adopted. The fee benefits the Williamson County Animal Control and Adoption Center.

“I hope that it brings general awareness about adoption,” Williamson County Animal Center Director Laura Chavarria said. “We do have tons of dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, horses, donkeys – everything up for adoption and I hope that people come to shelters to adopt rather than shopping.”

No word on if Uber will do a similar service for dogs in need of homes.
