Pet grooming is more than just for looks – it’s a crucial part of keeping a pet happy and healthy. Tiffani Meska spends her days doing just that — sprucing up furry friends at Grooming at Tiffani’s, a full-service dog and cat grooming business.

At least she was, until the COVID-19 pandemic forced her to shut down the business for two months. However, that doesn’t mean Meska isn’t in the mood to pass it on. That phrase holds particular meaning after the community rallied around her last October when her daughter was in a serious car accident.

Excited to be a part of Columbia Bank’s Pass It On Project, Meska is doing her part to give back. Grooming at Tiffani’s is providing full-service grooming to those in need and who might not be able to afford her services due to COVID-19, and Columbia Bank is paying the bill. “With Columbia Bank’s support I’m helping others and giving back to the community that supports me,” she says. “I feel it’s important to spread some goodwill in my community.”
