Because no one can resist the lure of baby animals romping and frolicking in the workplace, Uber is teaming up with Animal Planet and the Puppy Bowl today — and today only — to deliver adoptable puppies to customers’ offices for 15 minutes of playtime.

Working with local animal shelters and to promote Puppy Bowl XI, Uber is bringing puppies to animal fans in Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Dallas, DC, Denver, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Seattle, the company announced in a blog post today.

Puppies can only visit offices and not individual homes, with puppy availability running between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. in your respective city.

It costs $30 for 15 minutes of puppy romping in an enclosed space, with all proceeds going directly to the shelter or organization working with Uber for the promotion. Each dog will be available for adoption as well, with reps on hand to help facilitate the process should you fall in love during the visit.

As seen in the past with kitten deliveries, puppy availability will be limited, Uber warns, so be patient.
