Improving the mental health and well-being of our community

We Support Heroes

Whalen's Heroes

We are dedicated to giving back to those who give so much by funding service dogs for Veterans. Whalens Heroes’s goal is to improve the mental health and well-being of individuals serving our community. Whalens Heroes will assist with the fundraising, for the training, successful placement and support of service animals to show gratitude and support to those individuals who endure countless sacrifices to protect our community. 

Upcoming Fundraisers

Support Whalens Heroes by participating, volunteering or sponsoring one of our upcoming fundraisers. It cost $25,000 to acquire and train a service dog. Help us on our way to purchasing another service dog.
