RIVERSIDE, Calif. (FOX 11) - A little dog who was stuffed into a cereal box and dropped off at an animal shelter in Riverside County has now been adopted.
The adorable pooch was brought to the shelter last week in a Cap'n Crunch cereal box; that picture has now gone viral.
The 9-week-old puppy was found abandoned at Bryant Park and was taken to Riverside County Animal Services infested with fleas.
Since Razz Berry made her debut on social media, the shelter says phones have been ringing off the hook to adopt her.
Razz Berry was put up for adoption Saturday and within a few hours she found her forever home. The shelter says they used a lottery system in order to find a qualified family.
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
