Uber's puppy delivery service a howling success

#UberPuppyBowl a special promotion

The week is long, the weather is cold and Uber thinks we deserve some puppies in preparation for this year's Puppy Bowl.

Today, the ride-sharing service said it has partnered with Animal Planet  to deliver puppies to offices in select cities, for a $30 fee -- and every dollar from the service will support the shelter.

The participating cities are: Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Dallas, DC, Denver, Indianapolis,  LA, Phoenix and Seattle. 

Here's how it works: from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., interested customers can request the "PUPPIES" option in the Uber app. Once the puppies arrive, you'll have 15 minutes of playtime. (Make sure you have an enclosed space for them.)

Uber said it expects the "cute little canines" will be in high demand, so availability will be limited. All participating dogs are available for adoption.
