   *** We Specialize in Drop in Pet Sitting Visits ***      

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 pet sitting visits 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:

Extended Dog Walk$30

Does your dog need more than just a 30-minute drop in pet sitting visit?  We can provide an active walk that will help high energy dogs from getting bored.

 Adventure Walk- $45

Would your pup enjoy a nice walk along the river, hiking on trails, or a romp through the fields?  Just walking where there are new smells and sights can stimulate a dog in positive ways.  These trips are for 1.5 hours and will be in the Blount County vicinity.

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.

Pooper Scooper Yard Service-$30 per yard for up to 30 minutes (up to 1/2 acre)

Can’t find the time to clean the yard before your trip away?  We can take care of that for you while we visit your pets.  We will scoop and bag the waste and place where you instruct.

 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.

Key Pickup and Drop Off Service-$25 (fee includes both pickup and drop off)

For those that do not wish to have a key kept on file with us or have a lockbox, we offer a key pickup and drop off service.

Store Shopping for Additional Pet Supplies-$30 (includes drive/shopping time)

Forgot to pick up your pet’s food or RX before your trip?  We would be happy to assist you.

Pet Taxi-$25 per 30 minutes

If you need help getting your pet to the vet or groomers we can accommodate.
