Photos: We got Uber puppies, and it was awesome

Today, you can call for an Uber puppy for $30 and you’ll get to hang with a dog from the PSPCA.

Uber and the PSPCA teamed up today to bring puppies that are up for adoption to people and offices across Philadelphia, and we can tell you with certainty: They are adorable.

Uber and a PSPCA brought Robbie and Ryan — two adorable “mutts” who are three months old and ready for their furever home — to our Center City coworking space this morning. For $30 today only, you can call for an Uber Puppy to come to you for a 15-minute playdate. Proceeds will go to the PSPCA — last year more than $1,500 was raised.

The goal of the Uber puppies program is to raise awareness and cash for the PSPCA, and demand is high, so keep trying to get a puppy if you’re struggling to! Open the Uber app to find the “PUPPIES” option sitting next to “pool” and “black.” The promotion will be available through 3 p.m.
