Want to take care of adorable puppies for free with no long-term commitment That seemingly impossible dream will soon become a reality for residents of Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales thanks to Seeing Eye Dogs Australia. Their puppy subscription service lets Aussies sign up for a puppy acting as caregiver for approximately one year before trading their puppy in for a new one.

The subscription programme is part of an effort to find caretakers for future seeing eye dogs until they are old enough to begin training. Mashable explains that Seeing Eye Dogs Australia even provides free food, free veterinary care, and free boarding if caregivers go on vacation.

Of course, with free puppies comes responsibility. Seeing Eye Dogs Australia requires that caregivers not leave puppies alone for more than three hours and make themselves available for periodic training sessions with a ‘Puppy Supervisor.’ Still, that seems like a reasonable trade-off for free puppies forever.
