Uber to Deliver Puppy Playtime Across Chicago

Your Wednesday is about to get a whole lot cuter. 

That's because rideshare giant Uber has teamed up with The Anti-Cruelty Society to bring back on-demand puppy delivery across Chicago. 

The big event takes place on Wednesday, in honor of National Pet Week, with the goal of raising awareness about adoption - and with hopes of finding forever homes for dogs in need. 

For a $30 fee benefiting The Anti-Cruelty Society, Chicagoans can use the Uber app to order "puppy playtime" on Wednesday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

If your request is accepted, puppies will be delivered to your location for 15 minutes of "snuggle time," according to a release.

The company asks that you have an enclosed space ready for playtime, and if you can't bear parting at the end - select puppies will be available for adoption and you can ask a volunteer how to begin the process. 

“We’re excited to team up with Uber to bring awareness to such an important cause, pet adoption and grateful to have such a fantastic partner in Uber!" Anti-Cruelty Society spokeswoman Colette Bradley said in a statement.

"What a fun, cuddly, and therapeutic way to get out the message of the importance of adopting companion animals," she added.

This is the second year Uber and the Anti-Cruelty Society have teamed up for the "UberPUPPIES" promotion.
