These days it feels like you can’t go five minutes without hearing Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson‘s hit track “Uptown Funk.” But no matter how tired you are of the song, this adoptable-puppy parody will cheer you up—and it might even inspire you to become a new pet parent.

These adorable dogs are getting their funky due thanks to the Oakland, Calif., SPCA. The video features a variety of canines with attitude and reimagined lyrics like “Long coat, short coat, living it up in the Kennel” and “‘Cause time is right to adopt/spay or neuter your pup!”

The dogs get funky with several SPCA employees throughout the video, snapping Instagram selfies and strutting around the East Bay SPCA campus. Hopefully the group will cover some more pop—excuse us, “pup”—songs in the future.
