These cattle pounds are managed by “District Animal Welfare Societies” constituted under the chairmanship of Deputy Commissioner of concerned district.

These societies were to identify atleast 25 acres of panchayati land for construction of cattle pounds, but due to non availability of sufficient panchayati land in some districts, construction of cattle pounds have been continued on about 15 to 25 acres of land in 20 districts of the state.
