The Pupdate is in, Vancouver!

A whole week has officially passed since we teamed up with CAARE Rescue to bring you #UberPuppies, and we’re going through some serious tail-wagging withdrawals. With 18,000 requests in just four hours, you made it loud and clear- Vancouver LOVES puppies!

So, what’s happened since? Here’s the skinny from our crazy canine adventure!


The Official Pupdate

  • After #UberPuppies, CAARE received over 65 adoption applications, including ones for pups and adult dogs that didn’t go on ride-alongs
  • In just 24 hours, more than $1,600 in donations were raised for the shelter
  • CAARE has since received 12 volunteer applications, and another 23 inquiries about their organization

Of the 15 puppies that went on tour, ALL are about to be adopted!
