Re: Support of HSUS Programs
Appreciation and Gratitude

Dear Mr. Mener:

I wanted to write to share my appreciation and gratitude with you and your company for actively promoting the "Pets for Life," and "Disaster Recovery" programs in cooperation with the Humane Society of the United States.

As a volunteer for an animal rescue group that frequently deals with animals abandoned or turned in by their owners, I truly value programs like "Pets for Life" which seeks to educate people about pet guardianship and keep pets and people together. Recent rampaging fires in the west and floods in the north will affect the lives of thousands of people and pets. The HSUS Disaster Recovery program will be essential to saving animal lives and reuniting pets and their caregivers.

My husband and I have used Red Roof Inn and Motel 6 in the past, both for business and pleasure, because of the affordable room rates, consistent quality, and good customer service. Now we have another reason to visit Accor Group hotels - your dedication and commitment to corporate citizenship and animal protection.

As a marketing and public relations professional, I know the importance of customer feedback, which is why I am taking the time to write you. Besides being a marketing professional and a volunteer at an animal rescue, I manage a personal website dealing with a wide range of animal welfare issues. My humble website averages between 1,000 and 1,500 unique visitors a month, and now those visitors will see a cheerful "two paws up" salute to The Accor Group and their hotels in my "Paws & Claws" section - think of it as free advertising!

Again, thank you for your contributions to preserving and protecting the human-animal bond through your support of these two HSUS programs.
