** 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.

* Played for laughs in ''[[VideoGame/Octodad Octodad: World's Dadliest Catch]].'' The titular character thinks aquariums are festering prisons of iniquity, and the one that his wife is writing a paper on really does have lax standards--which makes his trip there all the more nerve-wrecking.

Added DiffLines:

* When Shaun is taken to the Animal Containment Centre in ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep: The Movie'', within fifteen seconds he passes a dog [[PrisonsAreGymnasiums pumping iron]] (well, a bone), a Siamese Franchise/HannibalLecter, a tortoise tallying days on the wall and a goldfish [[CaptivityHarmonica playing the harmonica]]. [[spoiler: After the defeat of DiabolicalDogcatcher Trumper, the rest of the staff convert it into a much nicer Animal Protection Centre]].

* Some ClassicDisneyShorts focusing mainly on [[PlutothePup Pluto]] will often have dog pounds being portrayed as prisons.

* 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.
