Qld Guinea Pig Refuge Open Days!
The Qld Guinea Pig Refuge holds open days on the first and third Saturday of every month. Open days provide an opportunity to meet our foster pigs, adopt, shop in our store, purchase food and hay or have your piggy groomed at our grooming station, which offers nail trims, mite and worm treatment, bathing, grooming and clipping.
Our open days are held at the Bald Hills Scout Den, 508 Bracken Ridge Road, Bracken Ridge. We also have various food sales points from the Sunshine Coast through to South Brisbane.
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.

The profits from all sales goes towards the guinea pigs in our care.
Adoptables of the month!
Scarlet and Violet are two cheeky sisters who love to popcorn around their cage and climb on top of their hidey. They are a vocal pair of girls and will talk to you, especially at dinnertime! They are good to hold, but being babies, may not be suitable for small children.

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.
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 Qld and do all of their vet work to find them loving, forever and legal homes.
