Yes, there are pets in Hogwarts Legacy. This being said, they may be a little different to what you expect. You can catch creatures in the wild to save them from being killed by poachers or hunters. They are then sent to the Room of Requirements.

What pets are likely to appear in Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy is based on the original world of Harry Potter. Characters, spells, and other stuff are taken directly from original books. So, there is a high chance that pets in Hogwarts Legacy will be taken from books as well.

The original world contains just six domesticated pets: owls, cats, toads, rats, spiders, and Bats. Therefore, we'd expect those six to also appear in Hogwarts Legacy, with more potentially being added by Portkey Games.
