It's on once again! In what RSPCA Qld staff and volunteers admit is a blatant rip off of the State of Origin series, the State of Adoption challenge has once again gone out to RSPCA NSW. This year Queensland is hoping to win an historic 7 in a row!

The goal of State of Adoption is for each state to re-home as many animals as possible from the start of State of Origin Game 1 commencing May 27 to the final game on July 8.

“Of course it’s a rip off on the whole concept but if we’re re-homing more animals then it’s all worthwhile,” said RSPCA Qld spokesman Michael Beatty. “We will start as the underdogs, (if you’ll pardon the pun), because Queensland has nine shelters, while NSW has twelve. But Queenslanders are used to that tag and it just stirs us on.”

“Once they’ve seen the fantastic animals we have up for adoption, we know they’ll find their perfect match and for us the perfect match is Queensland winning by a cat’s whisker!”

RSPCA Ambassador and Queensland State of Origin player Nate Myles is throwing his support behind the cause!

Last year 2048 RSPCA pets found their furever homes during the campaign. What will 2015 bring?
