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
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!
Note: We also have various food sales points in the Brisbane area.
Calendar of Events
Come along and see us at one of our upcoming events!
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. 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!
Ricci and Rocco
Ricci and Rocco are two cute young boys (almost five months old). While they are not brothers, they are only four days apart in age. Being so young, they are boisterous and active and their cage doubles as a Formula 1 racetrack at times. They sometimes play tiggy when you try and pick them up, but then sit nicely on your lap. They will let you know when it’s time for a feed with loud and excited wheeks. As they are still full of baby energy, Ricci and Rocco are only suitable for older children and indoors until they are six months old..

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.
