Got 30 bucks? You’ve got a puppy, delivered.
In preparation for “Puppy Bowl XII,” Uber and Animal Planet are teaming up to deliver adoptable puppies to offices on Wednesday in seven major U.S. markets.
For a mere $30, participants will receive 15 minutes of puppy playtime, with every dollar from each visit donated directly to the rescue providing the puppies. This isn’t the first time that the taxi alternative has delivered puppies to raise adoption awareness, so the latest partnership is a match made in doggie heaven.
Here are the #UberPuppyBowl markets: Chicago, D.C., Denver, Los Angeles/Orange County, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco/San Jose. Playdates are available on Wednesday, Feb. 3, between 11 a.m. ET and 2 p.m. ET.
And here is how it works: Users can request the “Puppies” option in the Uber app. If you call for an Uber Puppy Bowl, make sure to have an enclosed space ready for some furry fun.
“Puppy Bowl XII” itself airs Super Bowl Sunday from 3-5 p.m. ET on Animal Planet.
