Czar’s Promise

Czar’s Promise is founded on the premise of giving back. Helping our canine and human companions who we love and cherish each day, whose lives have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis.

And to bring our efforts home. To our very own community, so we may all realize the impact and giving nature of our families, friends, co-workers, and community partners. Giving of our hearts, compassion, talents, expertise, professional and financial support.

Our mission, the first in our country with three key areas of impact, is a unique approach to helping companion animals in their cancer journey, while funding companion animal and pediatric cancer research to help find a cure. 
  • Financial, educational and emotional support for families whose canines and felines have been diagnosed with cancer and receiving treatment
  • Grant funding for pediatric cancer research at UW Health Kids – American Family Children’s Hospital, Madison, WI 
  • Grant funding for companion animal cancer research at University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, Madison, WI 

And it is through our very own community and it’s partnerships, that Czar’s Promise will continue to provide support to those enduring this journey, and to fund groundbreaking and transformational research, so that someday, there will be a cure.

It began as a love story; the attraction, immediate. In 2001, a small white fluffball with an infectious smile that had me at "hello", came bounding full steam ahead and into my arms; and yes, that was all it took.
