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 $250 for dogs over 6 months old, and $350 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.

Before we start her bio, we want to pause so you can appreciate everything about Kodie’s underbite. Pretty amazing, right? This girl is more than just her grin, though--she’s friendly, loves meeting new people, and is an absolute pleasure to be around! Kodie knows sit, shake, and high five, and might even have more special skills hiding up her sleeve that we haven’t discovered yet. She’s a great mix of sweet and gentle while still being adventurous and fun. Whether you want to go explore the park or stay home and dole out head scratches, she’ll be on board.

Hilary joined us with her sister Haylie from the South LA shelter. These sweet, fun girls recovered from Parvo and are ready to find their future families! We think Hilary would be a great addition to any type of home with or without other animals.

Patty’s always ready to extend her paw in greeting to make another new friend. In fact, if it were up to her, she’d spend her whole day doling out gentle kisses and leaning her head against you for pets. There’s no such thing as a stranger to Patty--just a friend she hasn’t met yet.

Redford will make you feel like the most special person in the world, every day. This boy falls hard and fast for his people--just ask his foster mom, who gets an excited, smiling greeting from Redford every day when she comes home from work.

Sweet, happy Whiskey has been having a blast bouncing around our play yards, and now he’s ready to find a home to continue the fun. Whiskey will be a rewarding buddy for his future adopter: He’s eager, attentive, and ready for a life full of adventures.

Emmaline is ready to show off her underbite grin and playful ways to her future family. Emmaline totally lights up around her canine foster siblings and loves nothing more than a good play session in the yard.

Livvy loves life! She got a glowing review from her foster family, who describe her as “wonderful”! They also say she’s confident and funny--what’s not to love about that? Livvy enjoys hanging out in her crate with a good bone, but also likes to enjoy her house time with people. Livvy has enjoyed living with another dog in her foster home, and we think she’d be equally happy in a home with or without other dogs.

One look at Martha makes us want to curl up with her on the couch with a good book and never get up! This sweet, calm girl loves everyone she meets and is quick to go into snuggle mode with our volunteers. We have a feeling with a cozy dog bed, she’d make herself right at home.

Beignet has been spreading her sugar to everyone she meets. About 30 seconds after meeting her, you’ll see why she’s become a volunteer favorite. This sweet girl loves her people and could spend all day getting belly rubs and cuddling. At the moment, we think Beignet would prefer to be your one and only dog--don’t worry, she can handle the attention!

With his giant grin, roly-poly body, and happy trot, Stuffin is a sight to behold! We fell in love with this guy at the South LA shelter and knew we needed him and silly, happy ways in our lives, ASAP! We have a feeling his future adopter is going to have a lot of laughs in their life because of him and might become the most popular neighbor on the block.
