“If we can learn a lesson from anyone, it’s the Astros. They were down and then they came back.” Yea, I was down. I didn’t have a forever home. But I kept fighting. I was in a good foster home and what I really wanted to do was stay there. And that’s what happened! My foster parents, Michael & Suellen, became my forever home parents! It’s what I wanted. It’s what they wanted. And it’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Beau

And I hope the corn is popping too! I’m on my way to meet my new mom, Martha, in her loving forever home!

“It came upon the midnight clear, that glorious song of old; From angels bending near the earth, to touch their harps of gold.” It was definitely music from a gold harp that was playing when my foster family decided that I needed to stay as a member of a loving forever home!

They live on a one acre property and it’s just the kind of space a young girl needs to spread her wings! I also have another four-legged friend named Cassie. We’re already best friends and she shows me how things get done around here. How to get a treat. How to get a pet. How to choose a lap (give me a treat and I’ll choose you!). Oh..we are a couple of kidders! I love mom & dad. Everything here is perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Sissy

“It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing. It makes no difference if it’s sweet or it’s hot; Just give that rhythm ev’rything you got!” Swing? Rhythm? Oh yea. I have it! And I put it on full display when my new mom, Tori, came to take me to her loving forever home! Mom’s parents, Connie & Marty, are here too and they just love me! I’m adjusting well and I fit in great! This place is going to be perfect! It already is! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Maxson

“Now you got no reason to trust me, my confidence is a little rusty. But if you don’t feel like bein’ alone, baby I could walk you all the way home!” Yea, I got a little off-track. All I could think about was boys, boys, boys. It seemed like love, but I got left with the pups to raise on my own. I know better now…and I just wanted a second chance. I got all that and more when my new mom & dad, Becky & Tommy, said ‘she’s the one’! I love my new life here in their loving forever home! It’s going to be wonderful here. It’s going to be perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Miss Daisy

“You try to avoid her, fate is in your hands; She’s smiling, an invitation to the dance. Now you’re falling at her feet! Who’s that girl?” Yea, there’s a way about me. A little spell I can cast. And I cast that spell all the way to South Dakota…and that’s where I found my new loving forever home! I’m with my new mom & dad, Tracy & Dayton! Dad’s a vet….can you be cared for any better than that? And mom has that extra special touch! She’s got plenty of love for me and my three four-legged friends here! On top of all that, I have two human siblings too, Trayton & Dalton! There’s never a dull moment! It’s going to be awesome. It’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Edie

I was in, I was out and now I’m back in the game! I’m living it up with my new mom, Heather, in her loving forever home! Mom adopted from SRT previously and when she wanted another, she knew right where to come! And any dog that gets to be cared for by mom is one lucky dog! Love and attention. It’s perfect!

“I don’t wanna fade away, oh I don’t wanna fade away. Tell me what can I do, what can I say? ‘Cause darlin’ I don’t wanna fade away!” I don’t know what happened before…I didn’t do anything…I didn’t say anything….and I ended up without a home. But all that’s changed and now I’m in the loving forever home of my new mom, Lelia! I have five other four-legged friends to play with. One of them is Rosie, whom mom adopted from SRT last year! I also have Ginger, Pepper, Klaus & Lucy! Mom has her hands full…and she’s great with us! We love her so much! It’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Kocco

“You must be my Lucky Star ’cause you make the darkness seem so far! And when I’m lost, you’ll be my guide. I just turn around and you’re by my side!” A lucky star. That’s exactly what I have here in my loving forever home! I’m with my new mom & dad, Debbie & Billy! I also have a four-legged best friend named Ellie! Mom & dad are the perfect home where I can continue my recovery after my extensive injuries and surgery. They report in that I’m doing great and that I definitely have my forever home! Everything is great. I’ve got a lucky star! It’s perfect! Mom reports in that I’m doing awesome! I’m adjusting well and I follow mom everywhere!

“Mirror mirror, mirror on the wall, tellin’ those lies, pointing out your flaws. That isn’t who you are! I see a rose in bloom; Darling, it’s beautiful! Oh, so priceless!” I didn’t like looking in the mirror…but then I was rescued and now I’m in a loving forever home! Priceless! I’m with my new mom & dad, Noreen & Rob! Mom and dad have kids with dogs that come visit. And there are grandkids too! I love kids! And I love being loved. That’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Sophie

“Everyone cries, everyone bleeds. Everyone falls down, we’re the same underneath. Everyone loves, everyone breathes. Everyone’s heart beats!” Everyone has a heart. And every heart deserves to love and receive love back. That’s what I was looking for in a forever home and I got it all! I’m with my new mom & dad, Veronica & Joe, in their loving forever home! Dad works from home so I have company all the time! I also have a four-legged best friend named Maggie. She’s the best! I love her! And I love mom! And I love dad! And best of all, they love me!

“Don’t look to the left or right, you know the future’s worth the fight. L-O-V-E rolls off the tongue; But sometimes the word’s just not enough. Gotta dig a little deeper; You gotta love with your life!” I wanted love. And I would love with my life! And I’m doing just that now that I’m in the loving forever home of my new mom & dad, Rachel & Conner! Mom & dad live close to the family that adopted my sister, Marie, so I’ll still get to see her sometimes! That’s lucky! And I’m lucky! And, most importantly, I’m loved! That’s perfect!

“I had all my bets laid all on you; Set your stakes too high, you’re bound to lose. In the game of love I’ve paid my dues.” I thought it was time. I had paid my dues. I wanted a loving home. A loving owner. A place to call my own and a place to remember! I got all that an more when my new mom, Tina, picked me to join her loving forever home! Mom wanted a mellow guy that was also up for walks and the dog park. I’m all in! I love mom and I love my home! It’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Eddie

Some dogs are just lucky.  And dogs that work hard seem to be even more lucky! That was my strategy…show my skills, develop myself into an awesome pet and then find a loving forever home for lucky ‘ol me! And that’s the way it worked! I’m in the loving forever home of my new mom & dad, Rachel & Jason! Mom & dad adopted Beth (now Bebe) from SRT too just a while back! In addition to Bebe, I also have two great human siblings too! There’s a type of four-legged friend here too, Bob. He’s a guinea pig. Bebe and I like to look at him in his cage…but he’s a little hard to talk to! I love the kids – and we’re all ready for Halloween…Bebe Eight and Obi-Wan! Don’t worry…we’re smiling on the inside! I love my home – it’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Sammy

“I gotta get gone; Shooting like a gun; Skipping like a stone! Far as I can run to where freedom is free; There’s a road like a long gray ribbon far as I can see. And it’s pulling independence out of me.” I thought it would be fun to be independent. Free. No one telling me to sit, stay and come. But you know what? I like to sit, stay and come. I like being a good boy. And I like doing all that and more in the loving forever home of my new mom & dad, Lucy & Frank! I love it here. And they love me. and when there’s love….well, you have everything! It’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Sonny

“Good authors too who once knew better words, now only use four letter words writing prose. Anything goes. The world has gone mad today, and good’s bad today.” It’s hard to figure out the world today. I’ve certainly tried. But everything began making sense again when I moved into a loving foster home. I was loved, really loved! And then, my loving mom & dad, Kimberly & Earl, decided that they wanted me forever! I’ll tell you a secret…this has happened before with mom & dad! They’re great friends of SRT and they have fostered and then adopted previously. So I knew I had a chance! I love Fergie & Mandy, both adopted from SRT and I love my other four-legged friends, Kyle & Elcee, as well! It’s a home that one can only wish for. But my wish came true! And it’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Dusty

“And these are the last words I have to say; It’s always hard to say goodbye. But now it’s time to put this book away; Ain’t that the story of my life?” It wasn’t all that great, but it was all I knew. So I said goodbye and closed that book. And now I’ve opened a new book, a new chapter, with my new mom, Lynda, in her loving forever home! The first page of my new story was great and we’ve turned the page and we’re writing the rest as we go along! I love mom and I get to go with her to many places! And at night, I get to be right with her. That’s always the happy ending to each new page! It’s perfect! Mom reports in that I’m doing great. I’m learning to give the cat some space…did you know cats have claws??!! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Nico

“Don’t look to the left or right, you know the future’s worth the fight. L-O-V-E rolls off the tongue; But sometimes the word’s just not enough. Gotta dig a little deeper; You gotta love with your life!” I wanted love. And I was going to love with my life! And I get to do just that with my new mom, Kristin, in her loving forever home! Mom was my foster mom and I had hoped, no prayed, that she would want me forever! Mom has a nice friend staying with her for a bit named Jonathan. I like him too!

“I know I am enough, possible to be loved. It was not about me, now I have to rise above. Not in the name of love; I am not giving up!” No, I was not going to give up. I knew I’d find a loving forever home and I had a secret plan. I had the best foster home and my plan was to wow them in a way that would make them want to keep me forever! And it worked! I’m with my new mom, Kathryn, and her mom, Dorothy! Mom is one of SRT’s founders and her mom is one of their best volunteers! You can’t beat a home like this. Is there love? In big doses! It’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Lil Bud

I knew what to do. I just needed a chance. I was given that chance, and I didn’t disappoint! I leaped right into the loving forever home of my new mom & dad, Randee & Bob. I love it here. There’s so much room and so much to do. I have some very large four-legged friends…horses! I like watching them. I’d like to ride one! But the best part of the day is being in mom & dad’s lap. That’s where I know just how loved I am. It’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Cindi

It didn’t take long but it seemed like forever! Would she like me? Would she choose me? And she did! And now my world is spinning so fast…and I love it! I’m with my new mom, Amber, in her loving forever home! I’m going to have a great time here…and everything is going to be so much fun…but, mostly, I hope I just get to stay in these loving arms!

“My old red bike gets me around; To the bars and the beaches of my town. And there aren’t many reasons I would leave – yes, I have found me some peace. I have found me a home.” Yes I did! I’m with my new mom & dad, Lori & Jameson, in their loving forever home! Mom likes how my long legs can wrap around her when she hugs me! And I like to do that! I never want to let her go! I have some new friends here – mom calls them fish – but they don’t really play much. But I keep looking! I love it here. Fun, exercise and love! My new home is perfect – a real winner!

“Baby loves to dance in the dark; ‘Cause when he’s lookin’ she falls apart. Baby loves to dance in the dark.” I had to dance in the dark because I really wasn’t much of a Schnauzer….kind of a secret! But I danced my way into a loving foster home and now that’s turned in to being my loving forever home! I’m with my new mom & dad, Rita & Joel, and I’m having a blast. There’s so much love here! We go place and do things and every night it ends the same…cuddles on a lap! It’s absolutely perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Bosley

“Too high or too low there ain’t no in-betweens; And if I stand or I fall, it’s all or nothing at all. Darling, I don’t know why I go to extremes.” I would have done just about anything for a loving forever home! So I started with a foster home and really worked on being the best dog I could be. And then, the most wonderful thing happened. My foster family said…’you’re part of our family now’! It’s wonderful! I’m with my new mom & dad, Petra & Ed, in their loving forever home. It’s a great place to be…I am loved! In addition to mom & dad, I’ve got three great four-legged friends to play with. One weighs over 100 pounds! He takes care of all of us! I give him a dog lick for that! My new home is perfect and I’m so happy! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Trixie Sue

“Well, I don’t want the whole world – the sun, the moon, and all their light. I just want to be the only girl you love all your life!” I didn’t think that was too much to ask but it took a while to find a family that really meant ‘forever’! It was worth the wait! I’m with my new mom & dad, Kristin & David, in their loving forever home! I’ve got great human siblings here named Sidney, Dawson & Mason! It’s just a blast here. And, since I’m in Ohio, I’m loving this cooler weather. I don’t know what snow is but I’m looking forward to it! Mom & dad say, ‘just wait’! HaHa! I love my fun, loving home. It’s perfect! At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Sussie
