What is Animal Cruelty?

Animal cruelty can encompass many different acts of neglect and abuse. The language of the law is very specific as to what defines cruelty to animals, as listed under our NH Criminal Code, RSA 644:8. If you are uncertain if what you have witnessed is animal cruelty, please do not hesitate to call. It is part of our mission to educate the public as to the various laws regarding animal protection.  

Animals Helped by the ARLNH

 

Many animals have been rescued from hoarding and cruelty situations by the ARLNH. Here are just a few before/after  photos of some cats and a dog who were rescued. Extensive medical care was required by all of these animals to restore their health.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ways You Can Help

Due to medical expenses and the requirement to hold animals for trial, cruelty cases can be extremely expensive for the ARLNH.

  

To help with the cost of saving animals involved in cruelty investigations, please donate online and put "cruelty program" in the designation.
