2013 Activities


Thanks for joining us at PetSmart on Morrell Rd. next to West Town Mall on  Saturday, December 28 from 1 until 4 p.m.  for our recent adoption event.

Thanks for visiting the SBRET  Angel Trees  in Knoxville at Wild Birds Unlimited on Kingston Pike, Agrifeed Pet Supply on Middlebrook Pike and Mast General Store on Gay St. The Farragut locations were Petco and Bark Place Grooming. Oak Ridge locations were Oak Ridge Feed and Pet Supplies Plus.

Thank you to all the local businesses who allowed SBRET to place an Angel Tree in their store. And a huge thank you to all the folks who stopped by and visited our Angel Trees! Thanks to both, all foster dogs in our program will be receiving yummy food and treats, chews, toys, sweaters, cushy beds and blankets. The extra support means so much to all the volunteers as these are items the rescue does not purchase but each individual foster home frequently purchases for the dog or dogs in their care. It takes all of us coming together to take care of the homeless dogs in our community. Thank you again and Happy New Year!
