Get ready for extra smiles this Thursday, because Uber is teaming with the PSPCA to bring adorable puppies to your door.

It’s the second year for the one-day special, which will benefit the animal rescue nonprofit and help more stranded dogs and cats find good homes. Fifteen minute “puppy playdates” will run you $30, and every cent goes directly to the cause. Last year’s effort raised $1,500 and 11 puppies were adopted because of the promotion.

It’s easy to get yourself some quick puppy love: Starting at 11 a.m. on May 19, just pop open the app to find a new option sitting next to “pool” and “black”: PUPPIES. Request it and watch the map as the cuteness approaches, then spend your allotted time with a fuzzy little pup. The promotion will be available through 3 p.m. that afternoon.

High demand is a given, so expect some delays, but Uber will do its best to accommodate all requests. Do note puppies can only be delivered to offices — no residential addresses are allowed. Also, it might be a good idea to have an enclosed space ready for the li’l critters, unless your office is already puppy-proofed. If you fall in love with your new friend, let the Uber folks know, and they’ll help you get the adoption process going.
