Tallahassee, Florida- September 7, 2012
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services law enforcement officers arrested a Tallahassee couple this week after investigating complaints made to the Leon County Animal Control alleging two individuals were selling or adopting dogs and vaccinating animals without proper a proper license.
The investigation began in May when Leon County Animal Control notified the department of several complaints they had received about “Angels on a Mission.” During the investigation, the department obtained several documents showing Rabies and other vaccines had been given and recorded on “Health Record” forms from Angels on a Mission. Witnesses identified Vanessa and Brett Wonsch as the individuals operating Angels on a Mission the persons who were giving the vaccines.
Florida law requires that Rabies Vaccines must be administered by a licensed veterinarian and neither Vanessa nor Brett is licensed.
Both suspects turned themselves into the Leon County Jail yesterday and were charged with Practicing Veterinary Medicine without a License, a third degree felony
