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.


Lady canines, this is your lucky day!  This sweet fellow is Samson; he is a 2 ½ -year old Golden Retriever, and he is every bit as adorable as he is handsome!

Two of Samson’s favorite hobbies are chasing footballs and swimming—he especially likes fetching sticks thrown into the water.  The bigger the stick the better—they don’t call him Samson for nothing!

Could you be his Delilah?  Samson’s ideal date would be to have Dad chauffeur the two of you to the lake and/or woods, where he could show off how good he is at chasing birds and squirrels.  Or how about going to the park for a romantic walk at sunset…. then it would be back home for some snacks and watching cartoons.  But be aware—Samson’s favorite show is Puppy Pals, and he could literally watch it for hours!

At the end of a long day Samson likes nothing better than to drift off to sleep listening to gospel music by his favorite singer, Elvis; that just goes to show you what a truly sweet, good boy he is!
