Dog dropped at shelter in cereal box finds new home
The puppy has been given the name Razz Berry.
A dog who was left at an animal shelter in a cereal box has been adopted.
The Sheets family (Hayden, Teresa & James) of Riverside picked the highest number in a “lottery” for Razz Berry, the pooch that came to us inside a @CapnCrunchBerry cereal box. Roughly 20 families came to our shelter in #JurupaValley this morn to adopt Razz. #RivCoNOW pic.twitter.com/wd13spfoBt— RivCO animalSERVICES (@helpinRIVcoPETS) July 13, 2019
The nine-week old puppy was dropped off with Riverside County Animal Services in California inside a box Cap’n Crunch Crunch Berries and subsequently given the name Razz Berry by staff.
Publicity from the unusual drop-off meant the service was inundated with offers to adopt Razz, so staff decided to hold a lottery for suitable families who applied.
We have seen some creative pet carriers in our days. This @RealCapnCrunch cereal box has to be one of the oddest ways a pet came to us as an over-the-counter dropoff. We handled all its fleas and now hope an owner arrives. #RivCoNOW pic.twitter.com/yr2CHczswB— RivCO animalSERVICES (@helpinRIVcoPETS) July 10, 2019
