Governor Sununu Issues Executive Order Re-Establishing Commission on Humane Treatment of Animals

On April 19, Governor Chris Sununu issued Executive Order 2021-07, an order re-establishing the Governor’s Commission on the Humane Treatment of Animals.

“Re-establishing the Governor’s Commission on the Humane Treatment of Animals ensures that New Hampshire continues our proud and time-honored tradition of protecting our pets and animals,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “Working to ensure that we take every step possible to protect our animals has always been a priority of my administration, and the re-establishment of this commission ensures it remains as such.”

The Commission is charged with preparing a biennial report for the Governor that documents:

  1. The number of animal-cruelty related convictions in that time period;
  2. The number of animal-cruelty related cases in that time period;
  3. Relevant proposed or enacted legislation and changes in statute and administrative rules; and
  4. Suggested legislation as necessary to ensure the safety and welfare of domestic animals and New Hampshire citizens.

The Commission was last re-established and amended by Executive Order 2017-05.
