Waggin' Cents Pet Program at TNConnact

tnConnect understands that pets are part of the family, and you want the best for them. Pets are wonderful companions, but owning one is a big responsibility that includes a financial commitment. Not considering grooming, accessories, or toys, simply feeding your pet can be very expensive. See more on the expenses of various dog food brands here.

That’s why tnConnect created Waggin’ Cent$, a pet program designed especially for our members with 4-legged family members. In today’s economy, pet owners need all the help they can get to properly care for their pets. The program consists of a savings account to help save for pet expenses. Waggin’ Cents also offers reduced-rate loans for unexpected expenses, such as major vet bills.  It also offers Pet Insurance through Healthy Paws.


This account (on the member’s savings account) provides a specific place to set aside money for expenses, such as annual vet fees or pet medicines. Funds can be allocated to this account via payroll deduction, making budgeting easier on the member!


It is estimated that 1 in 3 pets will require unexpected veterinary expenses each year – tnConnect wants to help with these unplanned, and often expensive bills. Our reduced-rate pet loans offer 24 months to repay – we believe this is a better alternative than financing offered through your vet’s office.


Meet Prissy, a beautiful 11-year-old Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix)!  Even though she is an adult, Prissy relishes the fact that everyone she meets thinks she is a puppy since she has maintained her weight at 5 pounds for years.  She credits this to her stringent diet and exercise plan; Prissy loves clean eating.  She also enjoys going to Zumba class at least twice a week.  Prissy knows she is a foxy lady and considers herself “the 6th Kardashian daughter”.

Beauty sleep is important to Prissy, so it’s no surprise that her favorite hobby is sleeping.  But in between naps Prissy diligently protects her humans by chasing off any type of critter that dares to enter her yard.  Whoever came up with the saying “their bark is worse than their bite” never met Prissy!  She bravely barks and voices her displeasure at intruders not only in her yard, but the entire cul-de-sac until they are out of sight.  Prissy is most happy when her entire “pack” is at home; she swears she’s not spoiled; her humans are just well-trained!

When she’s not exercising, napping, or barking, nothing makes Prissy happier than hopping into her convertible and heading to St. George’s Island to vacation on the beach.  And she loves to shop at Target—only Prissy pronounces it like the French and calls it Targe’.  Prissy really is a foxy lady!
