Tallinn pet portal provides useful information on the matters related to keeping cats, dogs as well as other pets

Bringing a pet into your home is an important decision and responsibility, as the pet keeper should create suitable living conditions for the animal, enable, if needed, medical assistance and take care of it sometimes even for decades. When planning to bring a pet into one’s home the possibility to provide a home for one of the hundreds of cats and dogs living in the animal shelter or are under the custody of non-governmental organizations could be considered.

The pet should be kept by following the requirements stipulated in the legal acts and by guaranteeing the welfare and safety of other citizens. Pet is not allowed to wander on its own and the owner should clean the excrements of the pet.

The cats and dogs living in Tallinn should be microchiped and registered in Tallinn pet register. The chipping and registration of pets is important to bring the lost animal together with the owner as soon as possible and prevent the number of homeless animals. In case of lost or found wandering pet, one should address Varjupaikade MTÜ as soon as possible. In case of cats you can also contact MTÜ Kasside Turvakodu, Kassiabi, Kass & Pojad, Kelmiküla Kassijaam, Pesaleidja, 58 Kassi Koju or the Estonian Society for the Protection of Animals.

In case of problems, e.g. if the animal is dangerous or it is abused, Tallinn City Municipal Police Department, Veterinary and Food Board or Police and Border Guard Board should be notified.

The questions and proposals related to topics of pets can be submitted through website form or to e-mail address Triinu.Maandi@tallinnlv.ee, 616 4004. The website is managed by Triinu Maandi, chief specialist of welfare and waste management department of Tallinn City Environment Department.
