If you were wondering, Do Banks Accept Ripped Money, the answer is yes! Luna, our wolfdog, got a hold of Mel’s purse the other day and tore up money that was in her purse among other things. Sometimes in the morning we will let her out of her kennel and go back to sleep. Sometimes she’ll just play with her toys and watch people in the neighborhood getting ready for work out the window. Other times, she’ll get bored and find something to get into and destroy. This is just part of their nature and comes with the territory of owning an animal that still has a lot of wild instincts. There was a $20 bill that was completely torn up so I did some research online to see if the banks would accept the money. From what I understand, as long as you have at least 51% of the bill, (more than half of the bill) and as long as the serial numbers are still there and legible, they will accept the cash if it’s ripped. I joked around with the bank teller about how she should just put it in my bank account and I’ll come back for it another day. Then when she wanted to know why the money was all torn up, I told her a wolf ate it. She giggled and deposited my cash, but I knew she probably thought I was just kidding. I told her I wasn’t joking, and then I got a pink lollipop. And yes, I do feel better about it now. I’m not sure if it was the fact that she accepted the money or the lollipop, but I do feel much better. It’s probably the lollipop.
