Remember that time when you were able to order puppies on Uber? Well, UberPuppies are back once again and this time it will be for a Valentine’s Day special. In case you’re not sure what this is all about, UberPuppies is a promotion that Uber ran in Sri Lanka together with the folks at Embark for International Homeless Animals Day. All those interested, were able to get their share of puppy loving cuddles delivered for 15 minutes, at the simple push of a button on the Uber app.
UberPuppies: The Valentine’s Day Special
With the aim of spreading little Valentine’s Day love while raising awareness on pet adoption, Uber Sri Lanka will be partnering with Embark once again to bring puppies to your doorstep this Valentine’s Day. So how does one get hold of a puppy exactly? Here’s how.
- Open the Uber app between 10.30 AM and 12.30 PM, on February 14th
- Request the ‘Puppies’ option
- Once a match is found, the pups will be at your doorstep in no time(well, minus the traffic that is)
Sadly, you only get 15 minutes with the puppies. But fear not. The pups are actually up for adoption. If you’re interested you can simply get more details via the embark representative who will be accompanying the puppies for #UberPuppies. It should also be noted that this will be at Rs. 1,000 for the 15 minutes. According to Uber, all proceeds will be donated towards Embark. Also do note that if you’re requesting puppies to your office, please make sure your boss or building is pro-puppy and that no one in the area is allergic. Also, having a dedicated room for puppy playtime is preferred. So set a reminder on your phone and get ready because the puppies are coming!
