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, 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.
Open Days Location
The much awaited 2019 Qld Guinea Pig Refuge calendar featuring our supporters' own piggies is currently in production, so watch out for updates on our Facebook page.
When available, 2019 calendars can be ordered here for posting or collection at open days. All funds raised from the sale of the calendars goes towards the guinea pigs in our care.
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!
BP (desexed male)
BP has crazy evening adventures where you can hear him checking out his cage and flipping his house over or hopping up on top! He is a healthy eater and enjoys spinach as his main dish.
BP is a lonely desexed boy and is looking for a female friend to share the
rest of his life with and has been waiting patiently for some time now.
BP is hoping his forever family will love him for his red eyes and see
what a big personality he has.

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.
