Small Breed Rescue of East TN (SBRET)
Small Breed Rescue of East TN (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.
Please refrain from making ANY purchases from stores that sell puppies for profit (not to be confused with pet supply stores that provide adoption services for local humane societies, animal shelters, and rescue groups). It is estimated that over 90% of these cute little puppies in pet stores come from mass breeding facilities called puppymills. These stores will deny it, because this is their business. There are many wonderful animals available for adoption in local animal shelters, humane societies, and rescue groups in the area.
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!
