Tom winding up in the middle of a dog pound and sticking around? Does catching Jerry the mouse mean THAT much to him that he would risk getting torn apart by a bunch of dogs? Apparently, but that's what he does here after Jerry races into the pound for protection after Tom had been chasing him around the neighborhood.
How Tom copes with all these dogs of all shapes and sizes, and especially Spike the bulldog, is the story. There aren't a lot of laugh-out-loud gags in here but its continually interesting as Tom goes from dog-to-dog situation unable to catch little Jerry, even with a fake dog mask.
Note: this was still an earlier enough cartoon that one could appreciate the watercolor artwork in the backgrounds....some really nice stuff in here even if it was muted to highlight the characters in the foreground.
