     Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee, Inc. (SBRET) is a 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 of our dogs live with foster families in the Knoxville, TN area and we do not have a shelter facility. We have adoption events every Saturday. If you are interested in meeting one of our available dogs, please see the Events calendar for location information.

  Secret Santa Fundraiser!!!   
This is our busiest time of year and we need your help! This time of year is a busy time in rescue an our Vet bills are high!

Three generous donors will match up to $3000 each for a total of $9,000 for donations that are received through the end of December. 100% of donations received go to the dogs to cover their medical care. Please make your tax-deductible donation now and double our support! Remember every dollar will be doubled by the match up to $9,000! The only way we can continue our work is by donations!

The demand for our rescue to take in dogs is never ending. Just in the first week of November we took in 15 dogs that were rescued from one location. So far this year SBRET has saved 250! We've gotten 198 adopted and have 52 currently in rescue!

Just this year we have treated 6 heartworm positive dogs, repaired 2 hearts, had a diaphragmatic hernia, bladder hernia repair, 3 hip surgeries, 8 or 9 knee surgeries, 2 C-sections. We are treating 1 Cushing's dog. We had countless dentals, eye removals, tumors removed, and not to mention the usual spays, neuters, vaccinations and microchips.

No donation is too large or small and all are absolutely appreciated! You can use the PayPal button below, mail a check to our P.O. Box, or make your donation in person at one of our upcoming events.

12/8/16 update: The matched amount was increased by $1000 by one of our donors. That means if we get $10,000 in donations by the end of December, we will end up with $20,000. That would be wonderful!
