Select an "ornament" from the tree, make a purchase, and leave with the cashier. If a dog you select a gift for happens to be adopted the item will be used for another dog in foster care. Thank you and have a wonderful Christmas!

A great way to help out SBRET dogs in foster care if you are unable to foster yourself is by shopping for them from our Amazon Wish List. These are items that 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!
We have a plea to anyone who could help. We are absolutely swamped with requests to take dogs that are in need. Although we would love to help, we can't unless we have more foster homes. If you think you could help, please let us know! Check out the flyer for more information. As always, thanks for you support!!

Easy Way to Donate a Thundershirt
We would like to formally announce our partnership with www.GiveBackAmerica.org as a way to help our organization raise additional funds, all at no extra cost to you the consumer! The concept is simple, every time you shop online from your favorite online retailer a percentage of each purchase goes to your favorite charity...hopefully that's us.

Donations needed: The support of local veterinarians is vital to any rescue group, and we are very fortunate to work with two clinics that offer us a discount on services; however, veterinary care for our foster dogs is still extremely expensive. Rarely does the adoption fee for a dog cover the expenses that have been incurred. If you are considering making a financial contribution to SBRET, any amount is welcome, or you might wish to make a specific donation to cover any of the following expenses:

SBRET is in DESPERATE need of foster homes! We have been inundated with requests to take in WONDERFUL dogs, but we cannot take many of them in, simply because of a lack of foster homes! Won't you please considering fostering a dog? It's a short-term commitment with long-term results - you end up knowing that a simple action on your part has saved a life. Yes, the actions of one person CAN make a difference, as anyone who has read "The Starfish Story" can tell you. And we'll make it as easy as we can for you. We provide all needed medical care, and even loan you a crate if needed - all you must provide is a safe place to live, food and water, and lots of love! So if you're interested in fostering, PLEASE contact SBRET or complete our online Foster Application! Check out our Foster flyer for more information.
