Founding Supporters


As founders of Czar’s Promise, the Viney Family and Dr. Kai Shiu of Veterinary Emergency Service/Veterinary Specialty Center, have long supported and provided care for those who have received a diagnosis of canine cancer. Establishing Czar’s Promise in 2018, their vision to provide funding and support for canines and children within our community who have received a cancer diagnosis, has become reality.
