New Hampshire lawmakers still are trying to tighten the state’s animal cruelty laws in response to the seizure of dozens of Great Danes in Wolfeboro nearly two years ago.

Authorities seized 84 dogs from Christina Fay’s 14,000 square-foot mansion in June 2017. Fay argued she took care of the animals, which she compared to an art collection, but prosecutors said they were unhealthy and living in filth. Fay was later convicted of 17 animal cruelty charges and ordered to reimburse the Humane Society of the United States for the nearly $2 million it spent taking care of the dogs.
