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 fee 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.

As his namesake suggests, Cannoli is a treat who never fails to satisfy your need for sweetness! This big, smushy boy is never in a hurry, but always enjoys what’s on the agenda. Whether it’s head scratches, snuggling, beebopping around the neighborhood, or assisting in the kitchen, Cannoli will happily make his way from activity to activity.

Pebbles is a sophisticated snuggle buddy and she’s ready to make your acquaintance--preferably on a comfy couch! Her foster family describes Pebbles as a “precious gem” and it’s no surprise why--this low energy gal makes every day lovely with her presence.

Gremmie doesn't wag her tail like most other dogs. She's way happier than that. Her entire lower body swings back and forth in a full-body wiggle. Her tail is like a metronome--every morning when her foster family opens their eyes, the first thing they hear is the rapid fire tap-tap-tap-tap of her tail in the crate. She's like a little love engine revving up.

You might say Peaky’s a bit of a sophisticate. She’d rather spend the day sitting around with her close friends discussing wine tasting notes than engaging in horseplay and shenanigans. Who can blame her for enjoying the finer things in life? Soft blankets and zen vibes are totally Peaky’s style.

Belly rubs, snuggles, walks, hikes, and trips to the coffee shop--they’re all on Lilly V’s to do list! Lilly V is an affectionate girl who loves her family. As a young dog, Lilly V loves to have fun, but also enjoys the finer points of relaxing--in fact, she did great on an outing to a cafe with her foster mom.

If you believe that ball is life and things that are derpier are just better, might we introduce you to Arby? Arby joined us by way of Dogs Playing For Life’s National Canine Center, where he underwent extensive training--in fact, he was almost an explosives detection dog, but a hip surgery held him back from going to work!

Mama: An accomplished snuggler, a keen adventure trotter, an ice cream enthusiast, a toy hoarder to the max. She’s a whirling dervish of 100% delight--she is who she is. Mama joined us as part of a long journey that began in Canada, where she was confiscated as part of a dog fighting bust. After a several years long battle for the dogs to be released to rescue, Mama made her way to the Dogs Playing For Life National Canine Center in Florida for a chance to have a brighter future.

The name “Bug” might be short for “waterbug,” because the first thing this fun-loving boy does when he hits the play yard is jump in the pool and dunk his whole head underwater! Beach lovers and stream-crossers may want to keep Bug at the top of their lists for future best friends, because Bug will never say no to a day where getting wet is guaranteed!

Shenandoah is ready to live her best life with you! Shenandoah came to our program with 6 underage puppies in tow. After seeing them off to their adoptive homes, Shenandoah is happily enjoying the benefits of being an independent lady once again.

Don’t let his perma-pout fool you--Thatcher is a happy, goofy dude, and he’s ready to keep you laughing! Thatcher loves bouncing around the yard and getting pets from every volunteer he meets. Thatcher would love to trot around town with you or hit the trails for a hike, but once he’s home on his own dog bed, he’ll be happy to curl up and enjoy a bone while you chill at home, too.
