Cashew was found today at a North Brisbane home by police, who quickly reunited her with her carers.

In CCTV footage of the theft, the man was seen forcing his way into the RSPCA Dakabin Animal Care Campus, just north of Brisbane on Saturday, March 19 at around 2am, using an angle grinder to break into a metal cage.

He was then seen leaving the centre with Cashew in his arms.

The puppy had recently undergone surgery and required daily medication, prompting concerns from the RSPCA about the young puppy’s welfare.

RSPCA Queensland spokesperson Emma Lagoon confirmed the puppy had been veterinary checked and did require medical attention.

“We are absolutely thrilled that Cashew has been brought back into care and cannot thank the Police and members of the public enough for their concern and help in getting Cashew back to the RSPCA,” she said.

“After her traumatic ordeal we’re happy to say she’ll be able to finally go home with her new adopter very soon.”

Police continue to investigate the incident after Cashew was rescued, and will work to locate the man in the clown mask.
