Our Mission

Total Dog Care

The Basset Hound Ranch, assists in the rescue of unwanted and neglected dogs in the greater Toronto area and Markham York Region area. We pledge to make every effort to provide a safe, healthy, stress-free environment to these homeless dogs while they await new forever families. In the event a new family can not be found, we pledge life-time, quality care for these dogs. While we started with Basset Hounds, our ranch has since expanded to work with all breeds of dogs.

Our Mission is to:

  • Promote the placement of basset hounds into loving, responsible and permanent homes.
  • Rehabilitate injured, abused or neglected basset hounds.
  • Promote responsible pet ownership.
  • Provide awareness campaigns regarding spay & neuter


Our Services include:

We make sure to properly train all of the homeless dogs to ensure that they are well equipped to find a new home. Come visit us today and one of these adorable canines will most likely capture and melt your heart. In addition to homeless dogs, our ranch is also a top location for dog lovers and owners to bring their dogs for training. Our staff is devoted to giving these lovable and adorable dogs all that they require in order to be active, healthy and safe. We provide an environment where dogs can play with other dogs and where they can also learn how to share this environment with their new canine friends. Basset Hound ranch has sufficient amount of trained staff ready to provide the training and consistent monitoring to all the dogs during their stay here with us, however long or short.

We are continuously aiming to enhance our facilities in order for our dogs to come and stretch out their legs. A lot of dogs that come from condo living, typically could use a lot of the exercise that can be had from running around in the large play areas at this ranch. This type of environment will allow the dogs to learn how to behave when taken out of their usual smaller environment when back at home. Our facilities will simulate a park like environment for them.

In addition to training and a wonderful facility, we work in partnership with many different types of top veterinarians in Toronto, animal hospitals as well as private trainers. Many of the organizations that we work with are experts in their trade and work with us to deliver the complete package in order to ensure that these adorable canines receive the best care possible. Your dog’s happiness and health are our top priorities.

We also have on-site vets who volunteer out of their busy schedules to help out at Basset Hound Ranch. These volunteers typically work as Emergency Vets in Scarborough, Markham and other parts of the GTA. They have a passion in helping different pets and want to continue to give back to the community and help provide as much care as possible to these dogs in need. Rest assured that you will be placing your beloved friend in the care in the best of hands.
