Mostly they are rounded up and taken to the pound. Once there they have a specific amount of time to be picked up (this time varies by municipality) by their owner or adopted by a new owner. After that time has passed they are usually put to sleep in a humane way.
Most cities have a branch of the SPCA, which organizes and provides funding for humane sheltering and care for stray animals. Dogs and cats that are healthy enough to be cared for in private homes are then put up for adoption.
Cities also have their own animal control departments. These departments take responsibility for stray animals found within the city. They ensure that strays are treated within local animal welfare laws.
