Uber just eased mid-week blues with some puppy love in Delhi
Cab-hailing app Uber today offered puppies on demand in a bid to raise awareness about pet adoption in Delhi. The initiative is in partnership with online pet store Dogspot.In a blog post, Uber announced that between 1 and 4 pm on Wednesday, anyone would be able to request puppies by using its app. Once the user is connected successfully, a cab with what the company calls #uberPUPPIES will arrive at the user’s location for “15 minutes of cuddle time”.
This is not the first time that Uber has come up with such initiatives in India. In January, Uber teamed up with ResQ in Pune for what it called the ‘Change a Pet’s Life Day’. It allowed users to drive Uber cars with puppies for 15 minutes, before offering them an option to donate or adopt.
Uber has partnered with Dogspot.in to bring you these buddies, who are also eligible for adoption. Fifteen minutes of puppy love costs Rs 10. The cab service just has a small request of pet lovers: Anyone attempting to order pups has open space ready for them when they arrive.
Breaking the mid-week monotony with some puppy love!
