Gov. Chris Sununu signed a law Tuesday to strengthen New Hampshire’s anti-animal cruelty statute, taking action after years of attempts and a string of high-profile abuse cases across the state.

Meeting at the Greater Nashua chapter of the New Hampshire Humane Society, which has pushed for the legislation, the governor signed House Bill 459, accompanied by lawmakers and puppies at the shelter.

And he signed a separate law, House Bill 605, adding further penalties to those who have or make animal fighting paraphernalia.
