Two bills addressing animal cruelty in New Hampshire have been signed into law.

One of the bills represents a two-year effort to tighten animal cruelty laws after dozens of sick Great Danes were seized in Wolfeboro. It will require courts to hold a hearing no later than two weeks after animals are seized so the animals don’t have to wait months for new homes. It also sets deadlines for payment of post-conviction bonds in an effort to reduce the financial burden on taxpayers and nonprofit animal rescue organizations.
