Join Us for the Million Masks Challenge

Animal Emergency & Specialty Clinic of Knoxville is participating in the #millionmaskchallenge to help alleviate the shortage of surgical masks affecting both the human and veterinary medical communities. These easy-to-make cotton surgical masks are washable and reusable. Through the #millionmaskchallenge, our clients, families and friends can help keep medical staff safe and functioning while working on the front lines of the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic.

Learn how to easily make masks through a step-by-step pictorial or video how-to.

To establish the best method for you to drop off masks for use at either our practice, sister clinics, or human healthcare counterparts, please contact the Knoxville Veterinary Medical Association (KVMA) by e-mail at or through their Facebook event page, letting them know that you have spare, commercially-made surgical masks or hand-made cloth masks available.

Thank you so much for your support and participation. Together we can make a difference!
