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. If you are interested in meeting one of our Available Dogs, please see the Events Calendar for location information. Or you can fill out an adoption application and if approved, we will arrange a meet-and-greet or home visit.
All our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, receive heartworm/flea prevention, have dental cleaning when required and medical care. Our adoption fees help cover these expenses but we also rely heavily on donations.

If you plan to attend one of these events and would like to see a particular dog, please contact us a few days before since we don't always take every dog to every event. Or you can follow us on Facebook @SmallBreedRescue or Instagram - sbret_east_tn pics of dogs who will be attending will also be shared on Facebook and Instagram prior to the event.
Hope to see you there!

If you are currently not able to adopt a rescue, consider opening your home and become a foster for a dog in need...[Read More].
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!
