Animals depend on plants for carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. Also because some animals need plants for food. Plants depend on animals for seed dispersal and pollination. Many animals depend on plants. Most animals just eat them, but some animals will you plants as shelter, to hide from predators, and many other reasons. Plants also depend on animals for energy. When an animal dies it provides nutrients for the plants to feed off of.
There is a single species of wolf but a number of subspecies. Some scientists state that the red wolf should be considered a separate species but most now agree it is a subspecies of the gray wolf.

The red wolf has been demoted back to its status as a subspecies of the gray wolf - Canis lupus rufus. However, there is much discussion today that the red wolf is actually a hybrid between a gray wolf and a coyote as the DNA seems to indicate. There may be no such species as a red wolf. The black wolf is simply a color variation of the gray wolf.
