What does Uber and Embark have in common? Well on a normal day, nothing really. That’s about to change soon with UberPUPPIES.
Embark as we all know, has been transforming the lives of street dogs and the communities they live in since 2007. The opportunity to reach out and make a difference with its multifaceted approach to animal welfare, is the driving force behind Embark’s dedicated team. Focused not only on rescues or adoptions but also sterilizations, vaccinations, education and campaigning for improved policy with regard to animals islandwide, the Embark team takes the welfare of street dogs in Sri Lanka forward against the odds.
Uber, the taxi hailing app that connects riders to drivers seamlessly has been opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers since their initial founding in 2009. Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer. Today Uber is available in over 400 cities across 72 countries. The service is available in 27 Indian cities — more than any other country outside the United States and China
