When Uber brought you UberPUPPIES before across the world (like here, or here, or here), you were excited. How could you not be! There was so much cuteness going on. So that’s why Uber PUPPIES 2016 is so exciting! Uber is all hoping for the best but for some us, our teams didn’t make it to the NFL Super Bowl. Not to worry – you can still be a winner with puppies on demand! Paws what you’re doing because on Wednesday, Uber and Animal Planet are teaming up for another season to deliver the cutest puppy squad on four paws for Uber PUPPIES 2016. Get ready Chicago, DC, Denver, LA, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco – you’ll get to cheer on Team Ruff and Team Fluff with #UberPuppyBowl! How Uber PUPPIES 2016 works is very easy:
- Open your Uber app between 11am and 2pm.
- In NYC or DC? Enter PUPPYNYC or PUPPIESDC to unlock the special PUPPIES option!
- Request the “PUPPIES” option in your app.
- Once the puppy squad and their coaches arrive, you and your friends will enjoy a 15 minute cuddle huddle. PRO TIP: Make sure to have an enclosed space ready for Team Ruff and Team Fluff gametime!
- Found your Most Valuable Pup? In most cities, puppies are eligible for adoption.
If you’re lucky enough to request puppies to your office, please make sure your boss or building is going to be cool with woofs and that no one in the area is allergic. Also, having a dedicated room for puppy playtime is preferred.
It’s just a $30 “puppy playtime” fee for the best 15 minutes of your day, and Uber will turn around and support the participating shelters and rescues! If you’re lucky enough to get a visit, you’ll score 2 points because Animal Planet is matching the delivery fees from every visit.
Found your forever fan? Just ask the representative assisting with your puppy delivery about adoption. Last #UberPuppyBowl over 70 puppies were drafted – and this year Uber really hopes to find every eligible puppy a home!
