The Munster Police K-9 Fund is the primary source for the Munster Police K-9 Unit. Through contributions from residents, local businesses and civic groups as well as major donations from ENBRIDGE, Munster Rotary Club, Munster Lion's Club and the Lake County Substance Abuse Council, the Munster Police Department was able to raise enough funds to start their first K-9 Unit. Funds raised went toward the purchase of a specialized police service dog, specially equipped K-9 squad car, training and training equipment, veterinary cost and other cost associated with a K-9 Unit.
The Munster Police K-9 Fund continues to accept donations to help raise additional funds for continued training, equipment and in the future, the purchase of an additional specialized police service dog. Donations to this fund are tax deductible.
If you would like to help with funding this important program, please make checks payable to the TOWN OF MUNSTER (memo line: K-9 Fund) and send them to:
