About this organisation

Qld Guinea Pig Refuge (QGPR) is a not-for-profit community services organisation dedicated to supporting, rescuing, and finding homes for lost, abandoned, unwanted and mistreated guinea pigs in Queensland. QGPR is 100% volunteer and donations based, having an extraordinary and hard working team of volunteers, foster carers and other behind the scenes helpers. All these wonderful people donate their time and money to QGPR and are the back bone of this organisation.

QGPR has a NO EUTHANASIA policy. This policy extends to all guinea pigs, unless their medical conditions are so severe that treatment is not possible and there is no other option. We will always put 100% into the treatment and care of our guinea pigs in order to get them back to the best of health.

QGPR will take any ill, injured, unwanted or found guinea pigs from the public. These guinea pigs will be treated and/or fostered, and then re-homed under strict adoption procedures. In extreme cases, QGPR may accept cases from interstate where another supported rescue cannot help. We believe that every guinea pig deserves their voice to be heard and to be given a chance, and we will listen to any requests for help.

Our refuge is Brisbane based; however we have foster carers and volunteers spread across various areas of Queensland.
