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.

Newt is ready to find his future family! While in foster, he's been making waves as a fantastic office dog at his foster mom's pet friendly office. This sweet boy opens up on his neighborhood walks and has a nice flexible energy level.

She’s a gentle giant, and you’ll know she’s coming because you’ll hear volunteers gleefully shouting “Pony!” as she walks down the hall--yep, that’s Keisha! This larger than life girl has become a favorite of anyone she meets. Just watch her happily trot down the play yard with her effortless strides and you’ll be mesmerized.

Roxanna is ready to get the party started! This happy girl is tons of fun but equally as sweet. We met her in playgroups at the South LA shelter where she was having a bouncy, goofy good time with one of her canine friends. And any time she was in between playmates, she loved coming over for side scratches and adoration. We think Roxanna will be a fantastic addition to many types of families for both adventures and snuggles alike!About 2 years old and 45 pounds, Roxanne is micro-chipped, up to date on routine vaccinations and working on her basic commands.

Curious is an affectionate, friendly boy who loves to meet new people. He’s goofy and silly, but has a calmness about him that’ll make you want to be his friend right away. He knows sit, down, and high five--and he’ll eagerly show off to impress you! And in his special skills resume section, he has a signature “woo woo” silly howl to say hello or announce that he’s back from a walk--it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Happy, happy Henley is ready to make every day a great day with you. His smile will light up your world, as well as everyone else’s--this guy’s a total show stopper on his walks to the local coffee shop and loves to stop for a chat with neighbors!

Looking to take home some inspiration? Meet Sputnik, our extra special pup with four legs and two wheels. We met Sputnik at the South LA shelter when he was a young puppy. He wasn't using his hind end, so we quickly brought him into our program and sent him off to the excellent folks at CARE, where he’s grown stronger by the day.

Meet hippity hoppity Clutch! This silly boy loves to greet you by hopping around like a dainty jumping bean. He’s always thrilled to make new friends! Clutch keeps his foster family laughing every day with his goofiness, and they think he’s just about the sweetest dog they’ve ever met!

If you’ve spent some time with a senior dog, you probably know that there’s something extra special about these older pups. “Extra special” certainly describes Gordy. He’s gentle, sweet, friendly, and just...well...wonderful!

Happy, friendly, fun-loving Mickey is ready for his next adventure: finding his future family! If you have belly rubs to spare and are ready to dole them out, Mickey wants to meet up, ASAP.

Meet Jaz! Jaz joined us from the West Valley shelter during our fire relief efforts. This sweet, happy girl is ready to find a home of her own. She’s affectionate and loves to get attention from people. We think Jaz would prefer to be your solo dog buddy, though she could potentially go to a home with a well-matched dog with a slow introduction.
