Thanks so much to everyone that visited us and our dogs at Pet Fest (at Grace Lutheran Church at 131 W. Gettysburg Avenue in Oak Ridge, TN next to Woodland Elementary School) from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Saturday, October 1, 2005. There were exhibitions, contests and door prizes. Over 30 rescue groups and pet supply exhibitors attended. There were also children's activities and crafts in addition to many animal adoption and foster care opportunities. The Pet Blessing was held in the pavillion at 3:00 led by Pastor Stephen Damos. We would also like to thank Chris Parton for organizing this event and inviting SBRET to participate.

Click here to go to the YWAC website! SBRET would like to say thanks to the Young-Williams Animal Center (YWAC) for inviting us to the 2005 YWAC Rescue Appreciation Dinner on 6/26/05. Dr. Michelle Williams, Interim Director of the YWAC, Carmen Trammell of Peaceful Kingdom, and Dave Head, Knox County Animal Control Supervisor, were the featured speakers. We had a wonderful time meeting with other rescue groups, shelter staff, and fellow animal lovers.

SBRET is very lucky to be an approved rescue group at the YWAC. The shelter staff are always very supportive of our efforts and make every effort to help us save as many animals as we can. We want to offer a very special thanks to Karen Lively, YWAC Rescue Coordinator, who makes every effort to notify us and other rescue groups of animals in need. The YWAC should be very proud! We know we are! THANKS YWAC!

(Pictures from the event are now available!)

Updated information: SBRET will NOT be attending the Secret City Festival on 6/18/05 due to unexpected scheduling problems. Please check our activities page in a few days as we expect to schedule an adopt-a-thon at Pet Quarters in Karns soon.
