Uber is again partnering with an animal rescue organization to deliver puppies in the Twin Cities for 15 minutes of snuggle time.
The ride-sharing service announced that Uber subscribers can open their phone app on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for tail-wagging affection. The cost is $30, and Uber says a portion of the fee will go toward supporting its partner, Secondhand Hounds in Eden Prairie.
And if it’s love at first lick, “some puppies may eligible for adoption,” Uber’s announcement said. “Just ask the rep assisting with your puppy delivery.”
The puppy love opportunity was first offered in the Twin Cities in 2016 on Valentine’s Day and has been offered in other U.S. cities.
Here’s how it works:
After opening the app at the time noted above, select the “PUPPIES” vehicle option and put in a request. If matched, a driver brings the puppy for the 15 minutes of “aw, cute” respite.
Puppies may be delivered to offices and businesses but not to private residences.
