Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee, Inc. (SBRET) is a 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 of our dogs live with foster families in the Knoxville, TN area and we do not have a shelter facility. We have adoption events every Saturday. If you are interested in meeting one of our available dogs, please see the Events calendar for location information.
This time of year is a busy time in our rescue and our Vet bill are HIGH! We need your HELP! A generous donor will match up to $10,000 for any donations that are received through the end of December.
100% of donations received go to the dogs to cover their medical care.
A great way to help out SBRET dogs in foster care if you are unable to foster yourself is by shopping for them from our Amazon Wish List. These are items that mean a lot to our volunteers and the dogs they care for while awaiting their forever homes. There are items in all price ranges and any items from the list are much appreciated!
