A view down Chungmuro Pet Street

Chungmuro Pet Street is a group of pet stores with dogs and cats, animal hospitals, groomers, and veterinarian offices located east of Chungmuro Station. The collection of markets is located along Toegye-ro street just outside exit 1 of the subway station.

The market was first established in the 1970s. Locals call the area “Aewangyeon Market” which means “Puppy Market.” This area is home to about 40 pet industry shops including veterinarians and groomers.

If you live in Korea and want to adopt a pet such as a dog, cat, or other animal, then Chungmuro Pet Street is one of the best options. You can find a wide array of puppies, including small and large breeds. Most of the shops sell dogs, but if you are looking for a cat, you can also find a few for sale.

Most of these pets are from puppy mills, so be prepared to see animals in small cages and less than ideal conditions. It’s always cute to see pets through the windows in their cages, but its not hard to notice that these animals do not belong in small cages.
