A two-year battle at the State House over reforming the state’s animal cruelty laws, following several high-profile abuse cases, ended Tuesday in Nashua as Gov. Chris Sununu signed two bills strengthening protections for animals and increasing penalties for animal cruelty.

Sununu, joined by lawmakers and advocates, signed the bills at The Humane Society for Greater Nashua.

“I would like to thank the advocates at the Humane Society and Senator Jeb Bradley for their hard work, advocacy, and leadership in getting these two bills done,” said Sununu in a statement.
