CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The police chief in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, where more than 80 Great Danes were taken from a mansion over concern for their welfare, has been named to a revamped state commission on the humane treatment of animals.

Police Chief Dean Rondeau, representing the New Hampshire Police Chiefs Association, is among the 20 people named to the committee Monday.

Last month, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu expanded the duties of the 13-year-old Commission on the Humane Treatment of Animals. That followed the case of Christina Fay of Wolfeboro, who has been charged with animal cruelty after authorities said they found the Great Danes living in filth and suffering from sores, infections, and other health problems. Fay pleaded not guilty and awaits trial in October.
