[Internet] Batch mode for shortening long URLs

I have a batch of long URLs which need to be converted to short URLs.
There are a number of utilities on the web that convert long URLs to short ones.
There is a list of such utilities at https://www.lifewire.com/shortening-long-links-3486603 
www.Bitly.com
www.Goo.gl
www.TinyURL.com
www.Ow.ly
www.Is.gd
www.Buff.ly
www.AdF.ly
www.X.co
www.Bit.do
www.Mcaf.ee

Unfortunately, in the above utilities you have to enter each URL separately.
And since I have over a thousand URLs to abbreviate, it will take hours for me the complete the task, doing it one-by-one.
I searched, but I have not found a utility that will accept a whole batch of URLs at one time.

QUESTION.
Would you happen to know of one?  
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steve:

Thank you for responding to my post.

> it would be pretty simple to create
> a small script to submit from a text file.

Writing a script like this (accessing the API) is a little beyond my abilities.
However I may be interested in hiring someone like yourself to do so.
If you are interested, pls let me know.
