Animals in need have a strong advocate in Good Citizen Akbal Mund.

Mund was awarded $600 for a charity of choice when he received the Good Citizen of the Year honour and he has selected the SPCA and the Road Home Rescue Society.

“I conferred with my two most influential consultants – my daughters,” said Mund.

The SPCA looks after animals who are unwanted or neglected, while the Road Home Rescue Society assists residents with the safekeeping of pets during emergencies like house fires.

The $600 was provided by Fraser Financial.
