Dragon WriterIdeas? Remember this is about depictions of animal control in general, not exclusively dog pounds. One possibility:
What's Gravity Falls.I think any scene from "The New" Pound Puppies cartoon would work, too. Not the (literally) new one that's out nowadays on Hub, the other "new" one.
I'm pretty sure the concept of Law having limits was a translation error. -Wanderlustwarrior
GIS has a◊ few◊ good◊ ones◊. I like the last two best. EDIT: I hadn't seen the current image, but I think it's fine

Anime-tedOh, that #3 is just heartbreaking...either that or the OP's pic would be fine.
Dragon WriterWow, Shark's #3 is definitely heartbreaking. (The others in that post are too jocular for their own good.) I must admit I have a soft spot for Bolt's Mittens — if you look closely at the animation, in that particular scene she's actually holding back tears.
Anime-tedThe larger Bolt pic looks good...still dunno which one I'd prefer.
I see the Awesomeness.OP is fine.
Animation nothing, I found it obvious out of context even before watching the movie... if not ESPECIALLY before watching the movie.
I see the Awesomeness.I like the kitty. I would like to see it brightened just a touch, but I like both not being literal and not the background set up.
There's probably a good shot in Lady and the Tramp somewhere. For example, these◊

Lover of masks.I like this one. ◊ Very sad and obvious.

The one with the cat's cage looking like a prison cell is probably more obvious than ones with the dogs behind what looks like a fence, though.
Might I suggest a picture from Chicken Run? The trope is about pets in general, not just dogs, isn't it?
Special trousers. Very heroic.
I see the Awesomeness.It's about pets and what not in general. Wasn't Chicken Run about a chicken coop? I don't think that really counts since it's not a pound, it's a farm.
Yes, but it also had a very good chicken prison. ...which I'm entirely unable to GIS at the moment. Ah, never mind, let's stick to dogs.
Special trousers. Very heroic.
Well, I found I slightly higher quality image on my computer that I wasn't even sure until now if I had; it's a screenshot from when I rented it;
Anyway, there does not seem to be much objection to the Mittens one, should I put it up?
Anime-tedI dunno, with the Lady and the Tramp pic we've got three really good candidates...I'm thinking a crowner's in order.
I guess a crowner is not a bad idea, but I feel I should point out that the Lady and the Tramp images do not as clearly give off a prisonlike feel, given the wood, the green paint, (which looks like, if not actually is, plant material) and that the bottom 2 images have a fence instead of the bars.

I say the Mittens pic is good, though perhaps what to use for the caption should still be discussed. (I suggested a caption earlier on, in one of the lower-quality versions of the Mittens pic.)
Lover of masks.I still the best image is this one, because it give off a more human prison vibe.
The problem with this one is from a real pound and looks like a real pound. This fictional trope is quite different to real life and we don't want to evoke the later. The Bolt pic seems to be a good visualization of the trope: it looks like it is emulating a human prison. I'd suggest a lighter version of the Bolt pic so we can see the character more clearly:
