Puppies Are A Fan’s Best Friend

February 1, 2016 / Chicago

We were all hoping for the best but for some of us, our teams didn’t make it to the big game. Not to worry – you can still be a winner with puppies on demand!

Paws what you’re doing because on Wednesday, Uber and Animal Planet are teaming up for another season to deliver the cutest puppy squad on four paws.

Get ready Chicago, DC, Denver, LA, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco – you’ll get to cheer on Team Ruff and Team Fluff with #UberPuppyBowl


  1. Open your Uber app between 11am and 2pm.
    • In NYC or DC? Enter PUPPYNYC or PUPPIESDC to unlock the special PUPPIES option! 
  2. Request the “PUPPIES” option in your app.
  3. Once the puppy squad and their coaches arrive, you and your friends will enjoy a 15 minute cuddle huddle. PRO TIP: Make sure to have an enclosed space ready for Team Ruff and Team Fluff gametime!*
  4. Found your Most Valuable Pup? In most cities, puppies are eligible for adoption.

*If you’re lucky enough to request puppies to your office, please make sure your boss or building is going to be cool with woofs and that no one in the area is allergic. Also, having a dedicated room for puppy playtime is preferred.

It’s just a $30 “puppy playtime” fee for the best 15 minutes of your day, and both Uber and Animal Planet will turn around and support the participating shelters and rescues!

Found your forever fan? Just ask the representative assisting with your puppy delivery about adoption. Last #UberPuppyBowl over 70 puppies were drafted – and this year we hope to find every eligible puppy a home!

Demand will be high as many will want to play with these cute little canines, so your patience is appreciated. We’ll do our best to deliver as much puppy playtime as possible, but availability is limited. If you can’t get a visit from #UberPuppyBowl today, you can still support the shelters and rescues by visiting Global Giving. We can’t wait to see who will take home the title of top dog!


We’re teaming up with the following organizations to bring you these playful pups:
