An Update on Susie's Law

Susie In a previous post we wrote about "Susie's Law" which took effect in North Carolina on December 1. Named after Susie, a dog who was tortured yet survived, the law essentially states that it is now a Class H felony if a person tortures, abuses or murders any animal in the state of North Carolina. A Class H felony is punishable by time in jail. Prior to the enactment of Susie's law, such acts were considered misdemeanors.

Now state senator Don Vaughn of Guilford County has introduced an amendment to Susie's Law that would make it easier to prosecute animal cruelty, allow the court to place restrictions on custody of animals and require psychological evaluation and treatment, and require shelter for dogs.

Contact your state legislators asking them to support Senate Bill 2, An Act to Amend the Laws Regarding Cruelty to Animals, also known as Chamberlin's Law
