Animal Krackers was established in 2002 by Andrea Parkin and Susan Hardy. It became a registered charity within two years.

Since then we have helped many other rescues and worked in partnerships with a variety of organisations. We have become well known in the area and we provide rescue services ourselves. We cover the Sunderland area and also Washington, Durham, and occasionally Newcastle and South Tyneside.

There are no paid employees at Animal Krackers. We rely on kind hearted volunteers who give up their time for free, and on donations from the public. Our shop in Grangetown, Sunderland also provides a valuable source of income which funds the care of our animals.
