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
Refer to the map above. We also have various food sales points from the Sunshine Coast through to South Brisbane.
Open days provide an opportunity to meet our foster pigs, adopt, shop in our store, purchase food and hay or have your guinea pig groomed at our Piggy Parlour, which offers nail trims, mite and worm treatment, bathing, grooming and clipping. Don't forget to ask about our loyalty programs!
Below are some of the items which are available at our open days.
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 towards 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. The 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.
Adoptables of the month!
Meet Jonnie and Toffee, who are both around two years of age. Jonnie, the handsome white piggy, is a desexed male and recently met Toffee, a female. It was love at first sight for these two. Although they love snuggling together in their hidey, both piggies are friendly and quite outgoing. They love cuddles and would be a wonderful addition to any family.
Despite his happy little personality, Jonnie is often overlooked by potential adopters as he is a PEW (pink eyed white) and has been waiting for his forever home for some time. Many piggy owners will argue that PEWs are more special than your average guinea pig! Please consider giving this cute little couple the loving home they deserve.
