Most of us would like to change the world – or at least our little corner of it. For me, I want to help animals that have no voice.

Ticks bite, feed on blood, and sometimes carry diseases. They do not fly or jump, but crawl. Ticks are common in overgrown and wooded areas.  They generally find their way onto us or our pets when

The study also reveals that women living entirely alone with a pet are significantly less lonely than those living without a pet.
