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.

Tulip is a professional cuddling champ who we met at the West LA Shelter. She absolutely loves people and would do well around all ages, including children. This sweet and loyal pup likes to go for walks and is working on her leash manners.

Emma is a sweet and easy going girl who came our way via the South LA Shelter. This social butterfly plays well with her canine friends and is also content with a nap in her crate. About 3 years old, Emma is micro-chipped, up to date on routine vaccinations, crate-trained and house-trained.

Mae is our gorgeous red girl with freckled white socks who we met at the NKLA Adoption Weekend. In her time with Angel City, Mae has blossomed into a calm and affectionate dog who loves to snuggle up to her people and sneak kisses from house guests, too.

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.

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.

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.
