        “Love What You Do…Do What You Love”  




Greetings from Rocky Top Pet Services.

My name is LaDonna Madden and it is my privilege to have the opportunity to care for your pets.  This is my passion!  In 2012, I opened a large pet boarding kennel in the Knoxville area.  I enjoyed the experience but later decided to take a different approach and offer drop in cat sitting visits, small breed dog boarding and concierge add-on services in the Maryville/Alcoa TN area.  I believe in continuing education in the pet care industry through Pet Sitters International and Pet Health Academy to ensure I am ready for any situation. My love for animals drives my dedication for providing the best care possible.  My moto I stand by is “Do What You Love and Love What You Do” I feel so fortunate to be living by this moto every single day.

Concierge and Add-on Services

Does your pet need some special care that is not listed above?  Do you need extra services for the home that would make your time away a little less stressful?  We have some “add on services” you can add to your drop in pet sitting visit:


Litter Box Sanitizing- $15 per box

Do you need your cat’s litter box cleaned and sanitized?  We can do this for you with your instructions on types of cleaners you would prefer.


Extended Plant Watering Service-$25 for up to 30 minutes

Although we cover a few indoor plants during your drop in pet visit, we know some have gardens and outdoor plants that need attention as well.  This service is invaluable during the summer months.
