N.H. House To Vote On Domestic Violence Protection For Pets

Household pets could be protected in court orders protecting victims of domestic violence under a bill before the New Hampshire House.

The House is scheduled to vote this week on a bill aimed at protecting pets from harm in cases involving stalking and domestic violence. The bill would allow the court to grant custody of the pet to the victim and issue an order barring the abuser from harming or disposing of the animal.

Supporters argue abusers sometimes take their anger out on a pet or attempt to intimidate victims by targeting a pet.

This week, the New Hampshire House narrowly passed a bill that would prohibit landlords from discriminating against renters with Section 8 vouchers and victims of domestic violence.

After the House initially tabled the bill last week, lawmakers amended it to more tightly define victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. They now must have a current, final protective order.

The bill goes to the Senate next where it faces a tougher debate.
