Uber Announces Joint "Four Legs and Four Wheels" Initiative With ASPCA
Jason Droege, vice president of UberEverything:
"The welfare of animals has always been of huge importance to both Uber, and the people who make up this company. We're not alone in that. People care about animals, and we believe that they will do all that they can to help if they're given an opportunity to do so. That's why we reached out to the ASPCA to start this event. Through this program, we're going to give people across the country both a reason and an opportunity to adopt a pet that they might not have adopted otherwise. Is it going to be an expensive partnership for us? Of course, it is. But it will be worth it. It is our hope that the donations will substantially benefit the ASPCA and its work. As far as Uber's leadership is concerned, if a single family finds a new pet, then all of this will be more than worthwhile."
