Qld Guinea Pig Refuge Open Days!
The Qld Guinea Pig Refuge does not have an actual 'Refuge'. All our
guinea pigs live with foster carers in their homes. The Refuge holds
open days on the first and third Saturday of every month at
The Bald Hills Scout Den
508 Bracken Ridge Road
For details, click on the address above or refer to the map below
Open days provide an opportunity to meet our guinea pigs on foster care, adopt, visit our QGPR Piggy Shop, and purchase food and hay. You can also have your guinea pig groomed at our Piggy Parlour, which offers nail trims, mite and worm treatment, bathing (during warmer months only), grooming and clipping.
Don't forget to ask about our loyalty programs!
We also have various food sales points in the Brisbane area.

QGPR Piggy Shop!
Not only do we sell our own Pig'n'Mix and hay at open days, we also have a large range of products at competitive pricing. This includes hutches, bedding, water bottles and food bowls for your guinea pigs' every need. For more information on housing, click here.
The profits from all sales goes directly to the guinea pigs in our care.
What should you feed your guinea pigs?
Diet is an extremely important, and sometimes unknown aspect of caring for guinea pigs. Qld Guinea Pig Refuge sells top quality grassy or barley hay and our own Pig'n'Mix so you know your guinea pigs are getting food that meets their dietary needs.
To help you help your guinea pigs, we've created our own recommended fruit and vegetables guidelines which can be downloaded from the link below.
Adoptable of the Month!
Do you have a single male guinea pig looking for a friend? Please meet the gorgeous, 3-year-old Ginger! He's a cheeky little fella who loves to burrow under his fleece bedding to get extra snug but is quick to come out when he hears the rustling of hay or veggies being prepared! He loves to zoomie around his cage at the sound of food or when his foster siblings start chattering and doesn't hesitate to make his opinion heard!
Ginger is looking for a male friend to spend the rest of his life with. To help them be the bestest friends they can be, they will need a 1.2m cage or bigger with their own hidies, water bottles and food bowls so they have their own space when they need it. Could you be Ginger's furever home?
Please note that if you would like to adopt Ginger, you will need to bring your guinea pig to an open day at Bracken Ridge for a meet and greet, as not all guinea pigs will pair successfully.

Love Rabbits? Want to help?
As we know, rabbits are illegal pets in Queensland. However, that doesn't stop us from falling in love with them, and doesn't mean you can't help. If you would like to help rabbits in need, please consider donating or visit the Rabbit Sanctuary in Rushforth. The amazing team at the Rabbit Sanctuary offer homes to rescued and abandoned rabbits found in Queensland and do all their vet work to find them loving, forever and legal homes.
