Upcoming Events

Fundraising Events

We have a couple of fundraising events coming up in September if would like to get involved!

Bike Ride with Sainsbury’s
Sunday 13th September
Though a lot of people may be focussed on the Great North Run, there’ll also be a lot of people out and about on their bikes in Sunderland, raising money for great causes. Sainsburys at Silksworth will be the finishing point and Animal Krackers will have a stall and tombola so come along, cheer on all the cyclists and see if you can grab a goody too.

Active Sunderland’s Big Walk
Sunday 20th September

A few of our volunteers will be taking part in an 11 mile walk which starts at the National Glass Centre down by the River Wear and finishes in Herrington Country Park.

Now these volunteers aren’t particularly known for their love of exercise, so they’re making a big effort just to get up off the sofa!! So if you can donate even a small amount to their team, it will make it all worthwhile.

Visit our Virgin Money Giving Page to make a donation.


You can also use our main Virgin Money Giving page to make other one off donations or even a regular donation to Animal Krackers. Anything is always greatly appreciated.

Sainsburys Bag Pack

So… our fantastically kind volunteers have worked their socks off for two whole days, packing bags at Sainsburys in Silksworth, Sunderland. Thanks to all their efforts and the amazing generosity of the Sainsburys customers, we’ve managed to raise a fantastic £1324.65

Everyone at Animal Krackers would like to thank everyone involved for a brilliant team effort – we really appreciate everyone who gave up their time, and everyone who gave whatever they could to make sure our donation buckets were almost too heavy to carry!

We’d also like to say thanks for the one off donation of £25 we were given to put towards refurbishment of our shop in Grangetown. We’re hoping that work will be complete sometime in October, so we’ll keep you posted on progress.

Thank you everyone!!

Volunteers Needed!!!

As you may already know, Animal Krackers were recently selected as Sainsburys (Silksworth Branch) Local Charity. This means that they will give us much needed support in form of promoting our charity and will provide help with fundraising activities.

On the Friday 28th and Saturday 29th August, they have offered us the opportunity to do a fundraising back pack in store at Silksworth and we’re looking for as many volunteers as possible to get involved.


If you can spare on hour or two on either of those days, please contact Susan Hardy on 07957 677 672 and she can give you more details.


Thank you!

100 Cats Rehomed!

So today was a good day for cat rehoming – 2 cats adopted within ten minutes of each other, taking our total so far this year to a fantastic 100!

Unfortunately, 2 new cats also arrived at Ferry Farm, so we’re still at full capacity with so many more waiting to come in. We aim to help as many as we can but we’re desperately in need of fosterers to help with short term care, and more importantly, we really need permanent loving homes for all of our animals.

There are so many cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs waiting to find their furever homes. If you think you can help with short term care, or if you can offer one our animals a happy ending, please CONTACT US.


UPDATE (19/07/15) A Further 3 cats have been rehomed and another reserved, which will take our total to 104! This is our best weekend for rehoming in a long time but we still have many more amazing animals who need your help.


Welcome to our new website!

After a few months of blood, sweat and tears (and late nights!) we’re delighted to launch our new website. It’s been put together by some of our volunteers, who are self-confessed web amateurs, so if you do spot anything (broken links, spelling mistakes), please let us know so we can get them fixed.

We hope you like the new look – all the same information is here, plus some new bits and pieces. We wanted to make sure the site was easy to navigate and showed our animals off in the best possible way – they are our main priority after all.

Keep checking back for more news and info, and thank you for your continued support. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
