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.

If you are unable to foster, a great way to help SBRET foster dogs is to shop for them from our Amazon Wish List. These items 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!
