Greetings:
The goal of The Rabies Challenge Fund Charitable Trust is to extend  
the legally required interval for rabies boosters to 5 and then 7  
years, based on the findings of the rabies challenge studies currently  
underway at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary  
Medicine.  If the studies? results demonstrate that the rabies vaccine  
confers 5, and possibly 7, years of immunity, there would be a  
significant impact on controlling rabies and reducing adverse  
reactions associated with the vaccine.

Today I am writing to ask for your help.  The Rabies Challenge Fund  
relies on donations to finance the multi-year challenge studies that  
began in November 2007.  Due to the economic downturn, the Fund has a  
$33,000 shortfall for the third year of the studies, scheduled for  
this fall.  This deficit threatens the future of the research.

Costs for the studies? third year are $175,000.  Since January, we  
have raised nearly $142,000 of that amount.  We need to have eighty  
percent of the total funding for the year?s budget in hand to begin  
the third year of the studies at the end of November.  Please  
contribute what you can, as soon as you can.  All donations received  
will be used to finance the direct research costs of the rabies  
challenge studies.

With your help, we can raise the $33,000 necessary to complete the  
third year of the 5 and 7-year rabies challenge studies.  Tax-exempt  
donations can be mailed to The Rabies Challenge Fund, c/o Hemopet,  
11561 Salinaz Avenue, Garden Grove, CA 92843.  Credit card donations  
can be phoned in to Hemopet (specify they are for The Rabies Challenge  
Fund) by calling (714) 891-2022, ext. 13.

             Thank you for your support of this important work.

Sincerely,
