UberPUPPIES: Where Are They Now?
In February of this year, we teamed up with local animal shelters to bring UberPUPPIES to Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati. Offices could request 15 minutes of snuggle time with adoptable puppies for one day only, with proceeds going to the local shelter. With all of the puppy love generated around the city, the pups quickly found homes in the days following the event and we wanted to check in and see how they were doing in their new furever homes.
Say hi to Twix! Twix was adopted by Becky after her office had two UberPUPPIES delivered for 15 minutes of snuggle time, spurring her interest to visit the Capital Area Humane Society and adopt one of her own.
“Twix is doing great! She’s met a bunch of new people and made one doggie friend who she can’t get enough of. She loves to cuddle with her stuffed crab and chew on bones (and clothing 🙂 ) I’m so happy I adopted her!”
In Cincinnati, League for Animal Welfare saw a huge increase in traffic and requests surrounding UberPUPPIES and all of the pups involved were adopted within just a few days of delighting offices around the city.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
