Recently, residents of Mumbai were recipients of an extremely pleasant surprise, courtesy of Uber. The cab service provider conducted puppy drives enabling Uber customers to spend 15 minutes of bliss with these adorably cute, furry friends.

February 20th being “Love your Pet Day”, Uber partnered up with ‘World For All’ – an NGO that works for animal welfare and adoption of strays – to celebrate the day, and provide customers with some pure, gleeful bliss.

Customers using the app on February 20th between 2 -4 pm came across a ‘PUPPIES‘ icon on the app. And once they hit the button and made a request, the puppies arrived for them and their friends to experience 15 minutes of bliss.

This CSR move was designed to ease customers into pet adoption and volunteering. A similar drive was conducted in Pune last month, on January 24th, to celebrate “Change a Pet’s Life Day”.  UberPUPPIES

Uber had launched dedicated fleets called PuppyMobiles for the day, teaming up with Pune-based animal welfare and rescue NGO ResQ. Similar to the drive in Mumbai, users had to select the UBERPUPPIES option via the app, and if shortlisted, they were able to enjoy a 15-minute ride with the puppies, and free cupcakes as a bonus!

Customers had the option to donate Rs 300 to ResQ, or even opt for lifetime adoption, or simply walk out without doing either.

We don’t quite know if the drive worked the way it was intended to, but, at the very least, the puppies had an amazing time, and so did the customers! If you’re interested in adopting or donating, click on ResQ or World For All right away!  UberPUPPIES
