Uber Teams Up With Shelter To Deliver Puppies To Chicago-Area Businesses

On Wednesday, in honor of National Pet Week, Uber teamed up with Chicago’s Anti-Cruelty Society to deliver homeless puppies to area businesses. Before the special event, the shelter reminded its Facebook followers about the special Uber puppy day, and how to go about getting some puppy cuteness delivered to their workplace:

Tomorrow, request PUPPIES from the Uber app between 11 and 3, and have puppies from The Anti-Cruelty Society brought to your Chicago office for 15 minutes of puppy playtime. These puppies will be available for adoption after 3 p.m. and all proceeds will be donated to help the pets in our care waiting for their forever homes!

For just $30 (with proceeds benefitting the Anti-Cruelty Society) lucky employees were able to play, snuggle and cuddle with puppies . The shelter addressed individuals who were concerned about the safety of the pups during the Uber outings:

As always, the well-being of the pets in our care is the top priority. They are being accompanied by trained volunteers and benefit from the social interaction with the humans they’ll meet today. Our objective is to promote pet adoption and believe partnering with Uber for events like this benefits all the animals needing homes.

Uber Puppies was a hit – on Wednesday afternoon, the shelter stated:

The sign #UberPUPPIES was a huge success. If you weren’t able to request the puppies to your office, be sure to come by and visit them!
