     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.

Do a Big Thing this Spring  ~   SBRET will be holding its 4th Annual "Garage" sale on Saturday, May 9th, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. The event will take place again at the Highland Park Ruritan Building, Highway 321, in Lenoir City, at traffic light number 6, across from Wal-Mart. One-hundred percent of the proceeds will go towards medical expenses for the dogs in care of Small Breed Rescue.

The "garage" sale is our largest fundraiser and our wish is to top last year's amount. If you would like to donate items (anything except clothing) you may deliver those things to the above location any time on Friday, May 8th, between the hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you have any questions concerning donations please email rescue@sbret.com or email cherie-long@hotmail.com or call Cherie at 678-787-7566. Take a moment to spring clean for the dogs! Click here for more information about the garage sale and how/where/when to donate items for the sale.

SBRET Has a Secret Valentine!

SBRET has a wonderful supporter who has made the generous offer to match donations up to $2,500 through the end of February. Thank you for helping us meet our goal of $2,500 and joining with us to support the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and neglected dogs in our area during this month of love and all year long!

A huge "Thank You!" goes to PetSafe Corporation for awarding a $5,000 grant to SBRET to help cover veterinary expenses for dogs in foster care. We have had 14 orthopedic surgeries, 3 eye removal surgeries, 2 heart surgeries, one brain surgery, and 2 liver shunt repair surgeries over the past 12 months. That does not include all the dentals, tumor removals, heartworm treatments, c-sections and other veterinary procedures that would not be possible without grants, donations and fundraising! We've had lots of special medical procedures in addition to the routine spay and neuter, vaccinations, microchipping, parasite screening and parasite prevention each dog receives. The veterinary expenses far exceed the adoption fees.
