RSPCA's State of Adoption to rival State of Origin again

Yes it's on once again!

RSPCA Qld and RSPCA NSW are leaping onto the popularity of Australia's biggest football series in an effort to rehome more animals.

RSPCA Qld has once again sent out a State of Adoption challenge to NSW.

This year Queensland is hoping to win an historic eight in a row!

The goal is to re-home as many animals as possible from the start of the first State of Origin game to the end of the last.

The toughly fought contest bears another striking resemblance to the State of Origin series with most of the adoptees having a bit of "the mongrel" in them!

"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 Care Centres, while NSW has eleven.

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!"
