Volunteer groups that help animals in distress are getting some praise from the MP for Algoma Manitoulin Kapuskasing. Carol Hughes told her fellow MPs in the House of Commons that the work of volunteers is never done. On the weekend Hughes took part in the Moose FM radiothon in Elliot Lake involving the Society for Animals in Distress. Thanks to donations from the region, the radiothon surpassed its goal. Hughes commends groups like SAD for helping to educate people about animals and finding them new homes.
