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 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!
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.
QGPR Piggy Shop!
Here are some of the items which are available at our open days.
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.
Adoptables of the month!
Juno (in the middle) is the mum of these two funny babies, who are only two months old. The babies are not yet named so their new family can name them. They will never let you forget dinner time (they have very loud wheeks for such little things) and they love to zoom around the cage dodging their mum. Because they have so much baby energy, they are not suitable for a home with young children. Enclosures with ramps and/or C&C grids are also not suitable, as they can easily fit through the grids and or fall off ramps and injure themselves.

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