Special Project and Fundraiser

Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee (SBRET) is teaming up with The Big Camera to do a one-of-a-kind collaboration art project featuring rescue dogs!
You may have seen The Big Camera’s Community Faces project which featured large-format photographic portraits on the side of buildings around Knoxville.

This Fall, we want your rescue dog(s) to be featured on this public art wall at the Crafty Bastard Brewery in the Emory Place Historic District. You also get an 8"x10" keepsake portrait of your rescue. The Big Camera will help SBRET show our community the happy faces of rescue successes and spread awareness about pet adoption! There are only 200 spots available on the wall, so be sure to sign up soon! This project is open to anyone who has adopted a rescue, regardless of whether or not the rescue is from SBRET.

For more information and to take part in this unique event by having a photo of your adopted pet placed on the wall, visit our Square website: https://small-breed-rescue-of-east-tennessee.square.site/. You can also reach the Square website by tapping on the flyer below or by typing bit.ly/sbretwall on your browser.
Thank you for your continued support!

Our Mission

Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee, Inc. (SBRET) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to finding forever homes for displaced or abandoned small breed dogs. We are also dedicated to educating the public about pet overpopulation, the benefits of spaying/neutering, and the horrors of puppymills.

All our dogs live in foster homes in the Knoxville, TN area and we do not have a shelter facility. We have adoption events almost every weekend. If you are interested in meeting one of our Available Dogs, please see the Events Calendar for location information.
