Cuddle Some Puppies With Uber This Friday

What a paw-fect way to spend TGIF

Having a bad week, month or year in general? Well, Uber is giving you a reason to turn that frown upside down.

In partnership with pet food company Purina Pro Plan and pet welfare group Save Our Street Dogs (SOSD), the ride-sharing app is bringing its popular UberPuppies programme to Singapore for one day this Friday, 9 December!

Here’s how it will work: Launch your Uber app anytime this Friday between 1pm to 5pm then tap the ‘Puppies’ card at the bottom of the screen. If your request is successful, two puppies will be sent your way for 15 minutes of cuddle time. 

The best part is this is FREE! Instead of paying for furry snuggles, a representative from SOSD will be present with a donation box into which you can make a donation to SOSD to support the puppies and dogs at their shelter.


If there’s one thing to note, however, it’s that you probably need to have patience while waiting for an Uber puppy surprise. There will be no doubt countless of dog-loving Singaporeans requesting for UberPuppies, so be prepared to keep hitting the ‘Puppies’ card. 

Even if you miss the opportunity to meet some furry friends, there are many ways you can make a paw-sitive impact. Advocate for pet adoption with your own friends and family, donate to SOSD or if you’re a dog owner yourself, support Purina Pro Plan’s initiative: Purchase a pack of Purina Pro Plan from Doggyfriend.com at 25% off the original price and the pet food company will match the purchase and donate a pack of food to SOSD. 

From snuggling up to puppies to supporting a good cause, there’s certainly plenty to look forward to this Friday.
