This Friday, 3rd June, Uber is bringing you guide dogs on-demand!

The South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind was established in 1953, they train Guide Dogs for people who are visually impaired, Service Dogs for people who are physically disabled and Autism Support Dogs for Autistic Children. They rely heavily on public volunteers to raise and train their gorgeous pups. Puppies are placed with volunteer Puppy Raising Families at about seven weeks of age, and between 12 & 18 months are placed with a suitable owner


To raise money and awareness for guide dogs, Uber have partnered with South African Guide Dogs Association (GDA) to bring you guide dogs in training as play dates for only R100! All ‘fares’ go to the SA Guide-Dogs Association.

This is all happening at the tap of a button, all you have to do is go on to your Uber App on 3rd of June & request a puppy, and voila- it will arrive at your location to give you all the cuddles you can handle in 15 minutes!
