An Atlantic City man posed as a female animal doctor, ran an illegal veterinary practice and set up a phony animal rescue agency that may have duped animal lovers out of thousands of dollars, according to police.
He ran a business called South Jersey Small Animal Rescue, falsely identifying himself as Dr. Danielle Smith, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania veterinary school, police said
He inoculated pets and offered small animals for adoption for a fee through the rescue agency, police said. He also solicited donations, claiming the agency was a nonprofit. Authorities said it was not.
It was not immediately known if Tyce had retained a lawyer.
