The animal pound is a structure where abandoned or stray animals on the public highway are collected.
The pound is a public service and the capture of stray dogs is ensured by an intervention team of agents from the Agglomeration Community trained for this purpose. It has a vehicle equipped for this purpose. Stray animals are dropped off at the Sarreguemines Animal Protection Society.
The mayors retain special police power relating to the wandering of animals and ensure the management of animals other than dogs.
