A fish and tenderloin feast on Wednesday, May 15, will help support the three police dogs who work in Huntington County.

The meal will be served at the Huntington PAL Club, 2101 Riverside Drive, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door and can be purchased in advance at the Huntington County Sheriff's Department.

Proceeds from the dinner will be divided equally among the Indiana State Police, Huntington County Sheriff's Department and Huntington Police Department for the support of their canine programs.

"Everybody's kind of in the same boat," Sheriff Terry Stoffel says. "Nobody has a lot of money to spend on those line items."

All three dogs and their handlers will be at the dinner. The dogs will demonstrate what they can do and handlers will be available to answer questions.

The police dogs serving Huntington County are Beau, who works with Trooper Gary Shenefield of the Indiana State Police; Orion, who works with Patrolman Alan Foster of the Huntington Police Department; and Zeek, who works with Cpl. Dave McVoy of the Huntington County Sheriff's Department.
