Gold Coast Guinea Pig Rescue is a privately run shelter in Southport on Queensland's Gold Coast. We take in found, surrendered and rescue guinea pigs, providing them with veterinary care where needed. We are the first Guinea Pig Shelter in Australia to actively promote the desexing of guinea pigs and are moving towards a time when only desexed piggies, both male and female, are offered for adoption. We run an early age desexing program with Deborah Monks from Brisbane Bird & Exotics Veterinary Clinic in Macgregor whereby all baby piggies are desexed at three or four weeks of age. Many of our older guinea pigs are desexed by the piggy-loving vets at Greencross Oxenford. Any guinea pig coming to the shelter who can't be rehomed for medical or other reasons has a home here for life. All other piggies, when we feel they are ready to be rehomed, are placed for adoption.

We promote a healthy nutritious diet for guinea pigs and to this end have formulated our own mix which can be purchased from the shelter or from various retail outlets. Visit our website to find a location near you. We also stock a full range of Oxbow products. 

The shelter provides a boarding service at very reasonable rates.

Gold Coast Guinea Pig Rescue began in December 2005. We are a privately run shelter based in Labrador on the Gold Coast. We are a registered charity and in September 2014 we opened a Small Animal Supplies/Op Shop at 162 Turpin Rd Labrador to help raise funds for the shelter. We take in surrendered and rescue guinea pigs and care for them at the shelter until such time as we find them a new home. We are a no kill shelter and once in our care the guinea pigs have a home for life in the event a new home cannot be found. We have many of our male guinea pigs desexed before offering them for adoption. We make and sell our own adult and junior guinea pig food. Proceeds from the sale of our food and other products helps cover the costs of running the rescue. We also provide a boarding service and a piggy pampering service which includes bathing nail clipping and mite and worm treatment.
