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 pet sitting and mid-day dog walking 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.

Our Guests Says


Pet Visits

Does cancelling travel plans because boarding is not an option for your pets cause you to miss out on family fun?

Do you have a senior/special needs pet you can’t leave without feeling worried the entire time?

Our drop in visits will allow your pet to stay in their own familiar surroundings and receive the quality care they need while you are away.  We have started offering one-hour visits for those that need the extra time for feeding, medications, potty breaks and one on one attention.  Our drop in visits provide pets with the best care possible without the added stress of leaving home.

Services include:

  • Feeding/Fresh Water
  • Playtime/Exercise
  • Litter and waste cleanup
  • Medication Administration
  • Collecting Mail/newspapers, security checks, watering indoor plants, trash to curb
  • Photo and update sent daily via text or email

Mid-day Dog Strolls

Does the thought of leaving your dog home alone while you are at work cause you stress?

Do you fear that your dog is being destructive out of boredom while you are away? 

We can help you with our daily dog walking services to eliminate your worries.  We don’t just “walk” your dog, we include different walk paths to stimulate new smells, sights and sounds, exercise no matter the weather, and include interactive dog games designed to stimulate your dog’s mental capabilities.

Services Includes:

  • Standard walk (20-30 minutes) or extended walk (40-45 minutes) package discounts available for those who book 3 or more days per week.
  • 1 to 2 dogs leashed walked at the same time.
  • Waste pickup
  • Fresh water
  • Treats given per owner request
  • Daily update/picture given via text or email
