Dear Pat:

First of all, let me say, that we at the Wolf Recovery Foundation are very
sad after hearing the news of the loss of four of your wolves. We are happy,
however, to present you with this gift of $2,000 to help in the rebuilding of
your facility after the devastating wildfire. We hope this money will help in
providing whatever supplies you see necessary in your recovery.

We want to thank you for all the work you do there at the Center and know
that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
