PITTSBURGH —If your day gets a little stressful at work, Uber is here to help.

Puppies from the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society can be delivered to your workplace Thursday by using the Uber app anytime from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

More info: How the "UberPuppies" program works

The goal of the first-time event is to find homes for the puppies, all of which are available for adoption.

The cost is $30 for 15 minutes of playtime. All of the money will benefit animals at the shelter, according to the Humane Society

At first I thought "OH what a cute idea! who doesn't love puppies!" and it's been proven that babies and puppies have a positive effect on your mood, but $30 for 15 minutes?????

It's a fundraiser, man...

I've paid $10 for a plate of crappy spaghetti to support worthy causes before, but maybe that's just me...

I was so ready to order some puppies but I wasn't downtown. How awesome would it be to be chosen to drive the puppies too!

I didn't realize it was some sort of fundraiser until after I clicked on the link. I just glanced at the post the first time on my phone. But yes, definitely a GOOD CAUSE! Hope they all get adopted!!
