Adopting a Pet
- Veterinarians can provide the vaccinations that your pet needs. Dogs need to be vaccinated against rabies every year. Please see the pets page on the Tsukuba City Hall website. Cats generally don't get vaccinated against rabies, but you can request it if your cat is going to travel abroad.
Pets and Your Apartment
Many apartment complexes do not allow pets. Please check before you sign the lease.
