DENVER -- These days you can get just about anything delivered to your door.

Add puppy dogs to the list.

It's the brain-child of the Dumb Friends League with a little help from a special app.

The animal shelter partnered with Uber, the ride share app you can put on your smartphone.

They created Uber Puppies on Demand, just in time for Animal Planet's annual Puppy Bowl that takes place during this Super Bowl weekend.

All you have to do is hit the Uber app button on your phone, put in some information, and in no time at all, warm, cute puppies appear at your office.

"You get a 15-minute puppy play session," says Dumb Friends League spokeswoman Megan Rees. "It's a $30 donation that does come back to the Dumb Friends League.

Needless to say, the puppies are well-received.

But it's probably a good idea to ask your boss first if you can entertain some little 4-legged friends before placing an order.

"Some days you just need some excitement and so we love little puppies and they're absolutely adorable," Destination Services Manager Chelsey Levey said.

There is another motive in all the fun and excitement of puppy play. The Dumb Friends League wants to find good homes for good homeless pets. "All the puppies that are out are available for adoption. Today is all about the adoptions. Of course we are hoping we can raise some funds as well for the homeless pets in our care," Rees said.

Wednesday was  the only day for Uber Puppies on Demand play sessions. But judging by the reaction, one would think it won't be the last.
