about the sanctuary
Alittlebitiffy Animal sanctuary was founded in 2013 in Townsville, North
Queensland, by husband and wife duo, Graham and Iffy (Team Griffy). Iffy
is an accredited zoologist from James Cook University, currently
studying Veterinary Medicine at the University of Queensland, with years
of experience in rescuing and rehabilitating native wildlife as a Wildlife
Carer. Graham is an accredited biotechnologist and aquaculturist from
James Cook University, with over a decade of experience in caring for
Over the years, Team Griffy has supported several animal rescues and welfare groups, and through working with these groups they noticed a common trend: the smaller animals were sometimes forgotten simply because of a gap in knowledge. This sanctuary was created to fill that gap and abolish the misconception that guinea pigs are less important or less work than other domestic animals.
In 2016, the sanctuary relocated to South East Queensland, where it now operates in the Lockyer Valley.
