We all get that feeling of not wanting to get out of bed to go to work. Imagine this happened to you one day, and to make matters worse, you also found out that you left your car headlights running overnight, and the car won’t start because of a dead battery. But you have to go to work. So, you pull out your phone and book an Uber to pick you up. After a few minutes, your Uber driver comes to pick you up, and as soon as you enter your car, you get greeted by a puppy. This scenario will definitely make your Monday a lot better, and this actually happened.
An Uber driver who wanted to show people how adorable rescue dogs are decided to bring shelter puppies with him while working. The Uber driver’s name is Jonathan Guarano, and he’s a very active advocate of adopting shelter dogs instead of buying them from breeders.
Jonathan knows that backyard breeders don’t always treat their dogs well, and he wants to put a stop to the practice by helping spread awareness about adopting shelter dogs. Most people think that shelter dogs are often adult dogs who are in the last years of their lives. However, there are plenty of puppies of various breeds that get rescued as strays and live in animal shelters.
Jonathan wanted his clients to know how adorable shelter puppies can be and that they deserve a second chance and a forever home. When he thought about bringing shelter puppies to work with him, the people lucky enough to book his car were in for a great surprise.
After the passengers opened the door of Jonathan’s car, they started swooning in excitement when they saw the puppies. They couldn’t wait to get inside the car and start playing with the puppies. Jonathan’s strategy seemed to work. People who went for a ride with him began thinking about adopting shelter dogs, and he managed to change people’s minds about buying a dog from a breeder.
Jonathan is doing his part to help shelter dogs get adopted and find their forever home. Jonathan’s idea is so simple, but it helps spread the message a lot more effectively than TV or billboard ads. People get to interact with the puppies, and that interaction is translated into thinking about adopting shelter dogs. Here’s a heartwarming video of how an Uber driver managed to brighten his passengers’ day and also helped raise awareness of adopting instead of shopping.
