State Legislation

The NH Federation is monitoring the following bill in the 2018 legislative session:

Strong Support SB 569 – This bill would:

 1. Redefine what a commercial dog kennel is ensuring adequate care for dogs,

 2. Strengthen felony penalties for purposeful cruelty and

 3. Pass a cost of animal care law which would create a civil hearing process for a defendant charged with animal cruelty to pay a reasonable amount toward the care of the animals who are seized while the case makes its way through the courts rather than placing the financial burden on taxpayers and non-profits.
