#MeowMonday: Win a Kitten Takeover for your workplace!


Update: Whoa!! As of midnight on the 15th August, you’ve helped us raise £2,634 for Rescue Me Animal Sanctuary! Thanks to everyone who shared our video. And for all the offices that entered to win their very own takeover, we’ll be drawing a winner soon 🙂

We know the very best things in life are free. That’s why we’re excited to partner with Rescue Me Animal Sanctuary for a competition that’s sure to bring some joy to your Monday morning! To enter, fill out the form below for your chance to win a ‘Kitten Takeover’ for your office. What will this look like? Here’s a preview:


Rescue Me volunteers will be on site to make sure that the kittens and people all stay safe and happy during the takeover. In the best interests of the kittens, we’ll need to keep them close to their temporary home with the rescue, so only offices within a 35-mile radius of Liverpool will be considered. (Be sure to input the address of the exact office where you’d like the takeover to take place in the form below.) But wherever you are, you can still help homeless and unwanted animals get a fresh start in life! For every Facebook share of this video, we’ll donate £1 to Rescue Me, up to £5,000.

If you are selected, we will need to secure written consent from your employer to conduct the kitten takeover at your office. We’ll also need to get consent in written form to record video during the kitten takeover from all participants and your employer. This letter should disclose the authority of the person signing on behalf of the employer. If you have any questions, we will be happy to help.

Thanks and good luck!
