* Robert Downey, Sr's ''Film/{{Pound}}", especially since the animals are played by human actors!

* ''Film/WhiteGod'' has a dog pound where stray mixed breed dogs are captured and kept in poor conditions. The manager denies putting dogs down, but we later see her doing so to one dog and scheduling the main dog Hagen for euthanization because on his injured foot. Eventually Hagen leads a prison break.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretLifeOfPets'', though we don't actually see a pound, this is implied, with Duke talking about how he can't go back to the pound because he's on his final strike and this would be it for him. The pound van is also basically treated as a small-cell paddywagon that has to be broken out of.

* We hate to bring up such a notorious [[NightmareFuel childhood]] [[TearJerker destroying]] moment, but the first ''{{Garfield}}'' animated special ''Here Comes Garfield'' has him and Odie trapped and alone in such a pound. A bumbling Animal Control officer is a regular antagonist in ''TheGarfieldShow''.
* After being falsely accused of attacking Beebee Bluff (when he was just trying to rescue her from falling in thin ice), Porkchop of ''{{Doug}}'' is confiscated by the pound and sentenced to 'execution'. The entire matter is played out as if he's actually in a maximum security prison.

Added DiffLines:

* The WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry cartoon "Puttin' on the Dog" averts this by showing the dog pound as less like a prison and more like how it would be depicted in real life; the dogs don't seem to be suffering too much there.

This is especially the case with TalkingAnimal cartoons, where pounds are depicted as little more than prisons full of animal inmates "serving time" for some alleged misdemeanor offense and hoping to one day see the warm sun and blue skies again. In extreme cases, depictions may even echo [[WorldWarTwo Nazi concentration camps]] with {{Diabolical Dogcatcher}}s deliberately hunting down and impounding household pets by the hundreds (as one New York City pound became infamous for during the 1800's) to be "[[ReleasedToElsewhere put to sleep]]", never to see their beloved family again unless they immediately stage some kind of [[GreatEscape daring jailbreak]].

** Also, it should be noted there's a scene where one of the dogs is executed (off-screen, since this is Disney) by having his brains blown out, which is probably why a lot of the dogs are scared.

* The title character of ''{{Opus}}'' was imprisoned in the local dog pound at one point. It was PlayedForLaughs, with the storyline spoofing various PrisonTropes (and the inmates' reaction to a ''penguin'' in their midst). He was released after a short time, once his owner paid his fine. See ''BloomCounty''.

* In "Dog's Best Friend" from ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', Pal imagines Amigo in a pound that is essentially an animal prison.
-->'''Amigo''': All we eat are vegetables and there are baths three times a day. I don't know how much more I can take. I'm innocent, Pal.
-->'''Nemo''': Time's up, liver lips. Move along or it's [[ConeOfShame the cone]] for you.
