Don’t Call In Sick Tomorrow: Uber Delivers Puppies To Canadian Offic
Be the office hero tomorrow by upping the ante at break time. Nope, you’re not bringing in that bag of day-olds that have been sitting in your freezer for a week and you’re not springing for a box of Tim Bits. Tomorrow the office buzz is going to be all about you because you’re going to treat everyone to…. a puppy!
Yes, Thursday, April 30th is National Adopt-A-Shelter Pet Day and uber-cool Uber taxis has found a way to both promote the event and raise funds. They’ve partnered with 3MillionDogs – all you need to do is tap on your Uber app, and you can order up a pooch for a play date in your office whether you’re in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal or Edmonton!
The tough decision is whether to keep him all to yourself or share with your colleagues. The easy part is placing your “order.” Just click on your Uber app between 11 am and 3 pm tomorrow (that’s Thursday, April 30″and hit the “Puppies” option. It’s that simple. Uber will deliver your playmate and for $30 you and your colleagues (sharing is good) get to romp and cuddle a pup from your local animal shelter during a 15 minute play date break. All proceeds go to their local animal shelter partner and the pup you get to bond with is actually available for adoption by you or your colleagues.
Of course the big question is how you top this tomorrow… and how do you concentrate on work once the puppies are gone!
