D.C. pet lovers, Uber just made your dreams come true.

Now, you can travel with your furry friends in the Uber ride of your choice.

The ride sharing company's Uber Pet option allows pet owners to bring along at least one animal (others are at the discretion of the driver.)

To bring a pet along will run you an extra $6 and if any waste, hair, or damage is left in the vehicle, an additional charge will be added.

Uber suggests:

- Have your pet restrained with a leash, harness, or placed in a crate/carrier
- Help drivers keep vehicles clean for your drivers and all riders by bringing a blanket/towel to cover the seat and reduce the risk of damage or mess
- Ask your driver if they have a preference for where your pet should sit
- Do not leave your pet unattended

Service animals were previously the only animals allowed on an Uber ride.
