Events & Activities

Mud Creek Pet Memorial Trail


In the fall we host an annual tree-planting ceremony at Mud Creek in Chatham in memoriam of the beloved pets of Chatham-Kent that have passed. The Municipality of Chatham-Kent has generously donated the property at Mud Creek for this purpose.

We plant approximately 20 trees each year in memory of pets that have passed. There is a short ceremony that includes a reading of the pets’ names and a presentation of memorial certificates to the pets’ families. Each pet’s name is engraved on a marble stone and placed at the edge of Mud Creek Trail. View our facebook page for event images.

This is the 17th year of the tree planting ceremony that was founded by our group of veterinary hospitals and for families of the area. In the past 17 years we have planted over 236 trees along this green belt area.

If you would like a pet remembered with a tree at the next ceremony, please contact CK Vets by September 1st to purchase a tree.

Dress For The Cause

On behalf of the Breast Cancer Society of Canada, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to you for participating in Dress for the Cause. We are truly grateful of your generous contribution and we hope you enjoyed organizing your Dress for the Cause fundraiser.

The fight for a cure is very real. The Breast Cancer Society of Canada is now in the process of building a pan-Canadian virtual breast cancer institute which will focus on the development and application of personal translational medicine in breast cancer. Supporting a new and transparent endeavour will make the secure exchange of research findings available to all others. Transparency of all investigative data is essential for insightful research.

What difference can one donation make in the fight against breast cancer? The answer is an important difference! With your contributions Dress for the Cause 2017 has raised more than $500,000. Thank you again for your donation. By believing in our mission to save lives through breast cancer research, we will continue to fun brilliant researchers across Canada.
