2016 Activities






Thanks for visiting our  Angel Trees  at Mast General Store in downtown Knoxville, Bark Place Grooming in Farragut, and Whole Foods on Papermill in West Knoxville. Thanks for supporting our foster dogs and homes and providing the items they needed this Holiday season. What a great way to support the dogs in rescue and support these awesome businesses who always gives back!

Sugar Mama's Knox Thanks for joining us at  Sugar Mama's  (located at 135 S Gay St. in Knoxville, TN) for our recent fundraiser on  Friday, December 30, from 6 - 9 pm.  During Yappy Hour with SBRET, $1 per pint went to SBRET. There was music at 7. Lots of people came by to grab a local craft beer, hand crafted pizza, or something delicious for their sweet tooth while enjoying some live music and learning more about our organization. We had a table set up to share information about SBRET but did have any rescue dogs at this fundraising event. Visit their website or facebook page for more information about Sugar Mama's Knox.

Mast General Store - Since 1883 Thanks for joining us at  Mast General Store  (located at 402 S Gay St. in Knoxville, TN) for our recent adoption event on  Saturday, December 17, from 1 - 3 pm. 




Thanks for joining us at  Crafty Bastard Brewery on Sunday, December 11 . $1 per pint sold for all beer sales went to SBRET for the day, and we had a table set up with a couple  adoptable dogs from 2-6 pm . Visit their facebook page and website for location and directions.

Special thanks go to Julie Poole Photography (www.juliepoole.com) for presenting the  10th Annual Pet Portrait Fundrasier  from  September 3rd to December 4th  at Julie Poole Photography at 7529 Northshore Dr. What made this so great? It was HALF OFF the normal creative fee *and* the entire creative fee went directly to the charity of your choice. It was a gift directly from you. Win win for all. Your favorite charity got $50, and in most cases, you could write it off as a deduction and you got beautiful portraits!

These were full sessions, done either on location or at the studio. Julie suggested regular portrait clothing and you could also do a few photos for cards and fun with holiday attributes. If you the pictures for Christmas cards and gifts, she suggested booking as early as possible since weekend appointments filled up extremely fast and weekday ones were much more flexible. The fundraiser started the weekend after Labor day and ran until the first week in December. This was a great way to help our dogs and get some great pictures. Thank you, Julie, for supporting SBRET.
