Greensboro, NC-- A Greensboro dog is making a big change in animal cruelty laws. Wednesday, June 23, Governor Bev Perdue signed 'Susie's' Law.

The bill was named after Susie, a dog in Greensboro, who was found beat and burned in a park last Summer. The law will increase penalties for cases involving animal cruelty.

Animal cruelty charges involving torture, mutilation, starvation or disfigurement of an animal will be a felony under the new law.

In the past two month Susie has made trips to Raleigh to meet members of the Senate and House.

Governor Perdue signed the law around 1:30 pm Wednesday at the Governor's Mansion.
