Before letting me go online tonight, the app required me to agree that
I will take service animals, even multiple ones for a pax, regardless
of any fear of dogs, allergies, or anything else. Gotta take 'em.
Failure to agree to the terms is instant deactivation.

I don't think this is a change from their previous policy, though.
Maybe they had some kind of legal issue with people claiming
to be allergic or afraid of animals or something, and are just
verifying that if that's a problem, you can't drive for Uber.

I am not transporitng any animals for any Uber pax for any reason. It doesn't matter if the agreement I click on states otherwise. They can deactivate me whenever They want.

Sure, I'll take a service animal.... and I'll also take my cleaning fee
I would wager that Uber is not going to be providing cleaning fees for service animals.

Certainly not for hair, dandruff, dirt, or paw prints. or torn upholstery.
Those are just the cost of doing business; you should have figured that
into your overhead before deciding to drive for Uber.

I love everyone complaining about animals in the car. My dog rides in the car with me all the time. I don't put anything from down on my seats and he sheds. I do a light wipe down when he gets out. Ivery had 1 customer ask if I have dog to which I said no its from service animals

I have 5 dogs and they jump in my car with bench seat cover. They are better behaved than passengers. I would rather transport dogs over asshat rude drunk passengers 7 days a week. Dogs won't ask you for bottled water, tell you how to drive, or ask for AUX cable.

my dog has permission to ride in my car. Uber pax's animals do not.
Well, except (a) the federal government says they have to be allowed and (b) separately, you agreed with Uber that they are.
So both can come after you.
One of them can put you in jail.

Uber driver arrested for refusing ride to blind man and service dog, deputies say
July 07, 2016 (AP)

An Uber driver in Florida was arrested after deputies say he refused
to transport a group of blind people and their service dogs.

According to news outlets, citing an arrest report, 60-year-old Simon
Pierre Andre Nau was picking up Robert Stigile, who's blind, and other
blind people in Stigile's group Monday night in Orlando.

Stigile says that when Nau showed up, he said, "I don't take dogs."
Stigile explained the dogs were service animals and Nau allegedly
replied "I don't care."

Stigile says he was standing in the open door frame and felt the car
move forward, striking him.

Orange County Sheriff's deputies arrested Nau on charges of
failure to transport a blind person with a service dog and battery.

Deputies say Nau laughed about the incident as if he
"didn't fully understand that he had broken the law."
It's unclear if Nau has an attorney.

The blind pax won't put up much fight when I come back for them. Not too worried about it.

Dog walker in my hood makes $80k annual.
I was shown proof .
While considering expenses Uber Drivers makes less than dog walkers and fast food servers.
Pros: u can uber whenever u want.
Great P/T gig, however slow train to destitution if F/T uber driver.
