Yes, people, yes. Uber has just released a newsroom memo stating that they will be renting out puppies via Uber PUPPIES for 15 minutes at a rate of $30! Now, before you go flipping out and saying that is crazy-talk, I think it’s in your best interest to know that this $30 is all being donated to Infinite WOOFS here in Edmonton!
That’s right. You’ll be supporting an amazing local not-for-profit by renting out these uber cute puppies. So what are you waiting for?! Text/call/e-mail/send that darn memo to your workmates and get together to order some Uber PUPPIES for 15 minutes tomorrow anytime between the hours of 11am and 3pm. 🙂
Yup, you heard right. National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day is coming up, and to raise awareness we’re bringing you an on-demand experience that will be im-pawssible to forget. From 11am to 3pm on April 28, we’re teaming up with infinite WOOFS Animal Rescue Society to deliver puppy playdates to you and your friends at just a tap of a button!newsroom.uber.com
Here’s Uber Edmonton’s original tweet:
As most of you are already aware, Uber was forced to stop running its UberX, UberXL and UberSELECT ride share services in Edmonton a few months back due to the Alberta government and local insurance companies not allowing for rideshare. However, it is being said that Uber may legally bring back their much-wanted services back to the city of Edmonton in June or July of this year. Fantastic!
Come on guys! Let’s support Infinite WOOFS and order those darn cute puppies tomorrow, first thing in the morning (after 11am)! Uber says that demand will be very high demand!
Uber PUPPIES will be available in three cities tomorrow. Edmonton, Ottawa, and Toronto.
