You can request a puppy through Uber

The fee will help Secondhand Hounds, a local animal rescue group.

Sometimes you just need to cuddle a puppy.

And on Thursday, Uber will make that possible. The ride-share company is bringing Uber puppies back to Minneapolis from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for National Puppy Day.

It's $30 for 15 minutes of snuggle time, and some of that money will go to Secondhand Hounds, a nonprofit animal rescue group based in Minnesota.

All you have to do is open up your Uber app, and select the "puppies" vehicle option at the bottom left of your screen. Uber says these puppies will be in "very high demand," so if you want to play with one just keep requesting.

Some of the puppies that'll be taking rides around Minneapolis Thursday will be available for adoption. There will be a Secondhand Hounds representative with each pooch, so you can ask them if the animal needs a forever home.

If you plan on requesting Uber puppies, note that puppies can't be brought to residential homes, and you'll have to have an enclosed space where you and the puppy can play.

Uber puppies has been a really popular feature that the company has brought to various cities over the years, including Minneapolis on Valentine's Day in 2016.
