Why It Matters

Did you know that....

  • 6 million new cancer diagnoses are made in dogs each year
  • Children and dogs can get the same cancers – lymphoma, leukemia, and bone cancer
  • The average age of children diagnosed with cancer is 6 years old

Local Impact, Research & Awareness

Czar’s Promise is comprised of not only our Madison, Wisconsin team, but also trusted community partners whose lives have been touched by canine and/or human cancer. Our top priorities are providing outreach, education, funding for research and financial assistance; and we are committed to helping others through this uncertain, emotional, and at times, painful journey. As the Czar’s Promise list of community partners continues to grow, together we pledge to keep the promise we have made to help find a cure for cancer in our canine and human companions and loved ones.

Helping Bring Comfort to our Canine & Feline Families

Czar’s Promise knows firsthand how stressful and uncertain receiving a cancer diagnosis can be. The Czar’s Promise team has created The Woof Pack, a customized way of providing comfort to families whose canines have been diagnosed with and are receiving cancer treatment.

The Woof Pack is an ever-changing, from the heart gift pack containing a variety of items including custom fleece blankets, specialty treats, toys, and gift cards from local community partners. The Woof Pack provides smiles and hugs from recipients as they continue their cancer journey. If you would like to donate to the Woof Packs or learn more about how you or your business can be a part of this meaningful experience, please contact us.

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.
