bearIf your company needs a 15-minute distraction that may relieve some stress, Uber is delivering puppies today.

uberpuppy11That’s right — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, you can request an Uber to come to your office with cute little puppies to play with for 15 minutes.

It’ll cost you $30, but all proceeds are going to a participating animal organization in your city. Uber is only putting on today’s promotion in select cities, including Seattle. Here are the others: Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Washington D.C.

To request puppies, open your Uber app and slide to the “puppies” button. If you’re in D.C., enter the promo code “DCpuppies” to unlock the option. Uber recommends having an enclosed space ready for the pups, and asks to make sure no one is allergic or that no bosses will be angered.

If you end up liking a puppy so much that you want to keep it, you can. Uber said that all dogs are up for adoption in most participating cities.

Uber is partnering with Animal Planet for the promotion. The on-demand transportation company has put on similar deals in the past, delivering everything from cats to flu shots to Santa.

Speaking of puppies, Budweiser just posted one of its Super Bowl ads called “Lost Dog.” Just like last year’s Budweiser puppy Super Bowl spot, pretty sure this 2015 version is going to be a viewer favorite again.
