Up For Adoption

Our Adoption Process

Angel City Pit Bulls has dogs that fall under the generic term 'pit bull' who demonstrate stable, fun, people-oriented, outgoing personalities - making them fantastic family dogs. We have a wide range of energy levels, so whether you are looking for a running partner or a potential “therapy dog”, we will typically have a dog that will fit the bill.

Our goal is to provide adopters with the best possible adopter-dog match and we will work with you to find a dog that is right for your situation. Most of the ACPB dogs live in multi-dog foster homes, and enjoy the company of other well-matched dogs and some even with well-matched cats. We are happy to assist with family pet introductions.

To get started, we will ask that you fill out our brief questionnaire below and we'll set up a meet and greet for the dog(s) you are interested in. When you are ready to move forward with the adoption, we will arrange a home delivery to help you get settled in with the newest member of your family. Resources, support, and education are always available, and you can expect an extensive level of knowledge and support from ACPB for the lifetime of your dog.

All dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, and crate trained prior to adoption. We ask for an adoption donation of $200 for dogs over 6 months old, and $300 for a puppy under 6 months old. This non-taxdeductible contribution assists us in continuing our mission to help more dogs in need. We serve the Los Angeles area and parts of Southern California. Regrettably, we do not have the resources to adopt out of state.

Trixie is a gorgeous, kind and joyful girl who came to Angel City Pit Bulls via the South LA Animal Shelter. When we met her, she had fresh wounds on her pretty face and exhibited some initial caution around other dogs. In her time with us, we've practiced slow dog introductions on our weekly pack hikes and in her foster home, and in a short time Trixie has made tremendous progress.

Allie is a quiet, sensitive and sweet girl who came to Angel City Pit Bulls in October 2014. When meeting new people Allie can be a little shy at first, but quickly warms up and offers up her belly for a good rub. She enjoys the company of big dogs, and with a slow introduction would do just as well with small dogs as well.

We first met Brodie in 2012 when he was found as a stray and brought to the West LA Shelter with a fractured jaw. We welcomed him into our foster program and watched him blossom into a wonderful little dog throughout his recovery. Brodie was adopted by a loving family who in him raised a superb dog. However, due to some unforeseen events with his adoptive family, Brodie has returned to our program and is once again looking for his forever home.

Clara is a calm, sweet girl who came to Angel City Pit Bulls via the South LA Animal Shelter. When we first met Clara we knew under that very zen-like exterior was a quirky and silly dog -- and boy were we right! She's happiest zooming across the yard and sliding into the grass for a back scratch.

A true California boy at heart, Logan will win you over with his perpetual tan, casual ear-flop, and happy tail wag. Logan enjoys his walks and hikes, and is learning basic obedience -- will sit for jerky! He is an inquisitive guy and enjoys taking in all the sights and sounds on his daily strolls. Afterward, he loves a good scratch behind the ears before settling in for a deep snooze in his crate. And if there's a frozen peanut butter Kong around, all the better.

Cookie came our way via the South LA Animal Shelter where her upbeat, confident and social demeanor made her a favorite among volunteers. She greets every person with a big smile and a tail twirl. With her medium energy level, Cookie is the type of dog who would gladly engage in a training session, or venture out for a hike or brisk stroll, however she is also content with napping in her crate and really enjoys having yard access.

Meet Baxter! This naturally happy dog doesn't need a reason to trot around town with a big grin on his face. In his time in our program, Baxter has become a volunteer and foster parent favorite, and now he's looking for a family of his own to smile back at him.

Meet Nemo... He is the cutest little fish around! He is a very affectionate, sweet guy who loves to be held like a baby. As much as he likes to snuggle and give kisses, Nemo likes to play. He loves goofing around with other dogs that have a rough and tumble play-style too.
