Hi everyone, my name is Lisa and I am one of the volunteers at Homefinders. I help with the Luther sponsorships. I have three greyhounds, Lucky, Honour and Lewis. Last November Lewis had an accident in the house while I was out picking up my three children from school. Lewis had a mad five minutes, skidded on the doormat and went head first in to the back door. He ended up having to have a three-hour operation to remove a blood clot from his spinal cord between his second and third vertebra. Lewis was seriously ill and he spent eight weeks at Newmarket vets where we visited him every week. His recovery didn’t go as expected. The vets did everything that they could but after eight weeks Lewis still could not stand or walk on his own. So, the day before New Year’s Eve we took our little man home. He had to have round the clock attention and someone was with him all the time. He was such a poor little man. He had no hair on his neck or his legs and he had lost all of his muscle and weight. We had to build him back up and teach him to walk again. Well, here are now and he’s been home for four months and we’ve done it! He is now walking on his own. He still has a bit of a limp with his back leg but he has done so well. The last six months have been so hard for my family and me and I want to say a very big thank you to everyone at Homefinders, especially Joanne, Angela, David and Lynda.You were brilliant! No matter what time or day, you were always there and I will never be able to thank you enough.

Thank you Lisa for all that you do for Homefinders and for your never-ending confidence in, and love for, Lewis, Lynda.

Jack’s Favourite Liver Treat Biscuits 1: Liquidise one pound of liver with one egg and half a teaspoon of garlic powder 2: Gradually stir in two cups of wholemeal flour to form a thick batter that you can still pour 3: Pour batter in to a 8”x8” pan 4: Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees 5: When cooked, cool and slice in to ½ squares

Note from Pam; I make up 3lbs at a time as it saves time and it is rather messy to make! It can then be frozen in small bags.
