In the title complex, [Cd(C6H11N2S2)2(C5H5N)2], the CdII ion is hexacoordinated by two N atoms from two pyridine ligands and by four S atoms from two dithiocarbamate ligands in a distorted octahedral geometry. The CdII ion lies on a twofold axis. The piperazine ring is in chair conformation and its least-squares plane makes a dihedral angle of 81.4 (1)° with that of the pyridine ring.
