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.

Gertie came our way via the South LA Animal Shelter. This social, confident and affectionate girl greets every canine, human and cat with a smile and tail wag. With her flexible energy, Gertie is the type of dog who will gladly engage in a play session or venture for a hike or brisk stroll, but she is also content napping in her crate with a yummy bone. She is very food-motivated, eager to please and quick to learn new commands.

Meet Baxter; he is a joy to be around and we just had to take him into our program! Baxter is very affectionate; he loves to lay at your feet and snuggle with you at home, he is a lovely movie-watching partner. Bax is a delight to take on a nice walk or brisk hike, and he will gladly go for a romp in the yard. He is quick to learn new skills and would do great with agility coursework.

Steve is such a happy camper! He is so enthusiastic and loves life, is fantastic with kids and is wonderful in the house. Steve is smart, has a great personality and loves his crate. He would do great in a home as the only dog or with another well-matched dog. Steve is such a wonderful companion and great TV-watching buddy.

Tommy is an adorable combination of sweet and goofy -- the kind of dog that you can't help smiling around. He is playful and fun, yet he loves snuggle time with his people most of all. Handsome Tommy is one of those wonderfully simple and easy dogs, all silly grins and pure joy; just don't ask him to solve complex math equations (he would much rather smile at himself in the mirror). He is a soft-hearted guy and while he continues to build his confidence, he is eager to explore and learn.

Chico came our way via the South LA Shelter, and this boy is a big hunk of love. He really enjoys going for walks and exploring the outside world. With this soft eyes, floppy ears and fur that feels like velvet, Chico is sure to attract new friends where ever he goes. He is poised to be best friend to the lucky family who chooses him.

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.
