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.

Beaufort hasn’t let his special needs keep him from enjoying life to the fullest. This loving boy came to us with a tethered cord that required spinal surgery. After months of rehab and physical therapy, he’s made the transition back into a foster home and is doing great!

Lollie’s ready to ring in the new year with a new home! This sweet, affectionate girl has been a pleasure in her foster home. She’s happy to hang out in her crate or mosey around the house, and her foster parents say she’s been an easy keeper. She walks nicely on leash with some encouragement, and had a great time on a recent pack hike.

If you color code your planner and already know what you’re doing on Tuesday 3 months from now, Pipetta wants to chat. She loves to swap strategies on routines and schedules, because that’s what works for her!

We aren’t sure who sent Fuzzy Nelson here or what he's doing on Earth. What we are sure of is that this very special dog needs a very special home for however much more time he needs to complete his mission.

From breweries to team meetings, Gummy Bear is a showstopper everywhere he goes. He's no stranger to the camera and will stop for anyone wanting to take a selfie with him--which is pretty much everyone, because with his combination of mini pony size and teddy bear demeanor, it’s impossible to pass him by without saying hello.

Have you been looking for a lady of leisure to invite into your life? Minnow’s your girl. When she’s not enjoying a good chew on her bone, this couch queen loves to relax and get belly rubs. Her foster dad describes her as “sweet as pie” and has been enjoying the symphony of grunts and snores she’s brought to the household.

Meet Geo! No, seriously--come over and say hi! This happy meatball loves making new friends and would love to make your acquaintance. His bouncy, wiggly greeting style will make you feel like the most important person in the world.

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.

Meet Daryl, the absolute shoe-in for the award we just made up: “Biggest Transformation of a Daryl.” When we first met him, he was scared of pretty much everything and didn’t know much about the world. Now, he likes getting up early to go on a hike, lounging around, and showing off his impressive “woof!”

Carter joined our program from the East Valley shelter during our fire relief efforts. To answer everyone’s question: Yes, his muzzle is as soft as it looks. One smooch and you’ll be hooked! This sweet, smushy boy has been spending his time learning more about the world while in his foster homes.
