The Animal Welfare League NSW will benefit again this year from Parched March, Sydney’s month long bar odyssey which is back again for the fourth year running.

Launched at The Loft on King Street Wharf by animal lover Jamie Durie and vet Dr Katrina Warren, the annual Good Times for a Good Cause is set to be the biggest yet, with more than 60 Sydney bars mixing up special cocktails throughout the month of March.  Every time you buy one of these cocktails at the participating bars, the venue will donate a portion of the price to the cause.  By taking on one of the Parched March challenges such as 30 Bars In 30 Days or Furry Friday Rescue, money can also be raised for the animals.

Founder Amy Cooper created the campaign, which celebrates sensible drinking and Sydney’s fabulous array of world-class bars.

“Parched March helps raise money for Animal Welfare League NSW by encouraging people to enjoy our city’s bars responsibly. It proves that doing good doesn’t always mean depriving yourself,” says Parched March Director, Amy Cooper.  “It’s now become a much-anticipated event on the Sydney social calendar, bringing friends and colleagues together as well as showcasing this city’s brilliant bar culture.”

The Animal Welfare League NSW is reliant on donations and is a dynamic organisation that works to save and improve the lives of pets that have been surrendered, neglected or abandoned.  They protect animals through regulatory work with various Government bodies and help to enforce legislation with a team of Inspectors who are on the ground every day. For pets in need, they provide customised care through a foster care and branch network, three shelters and veterinary hospital, while working to find loving forever homes for animals in their care.
