DA Drops Charges Against Wilson Animal Advocates

Posted March 9, 2004 2:24 a.m. EST

— Two animal advocates no longer face criminal charges for practicing veterinary medicine without a license.

Max and Della Fitz-Gerald, who own an animal shelter in Wilson, were charged in February after an undercover investigator with the state saw them giving vaccinations without a license.

After getting all the paperwork from the veterinary board, the district attorney's office decided to drop the charges.
