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 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.

Jujubee’s one of those dogs that plays things close to the chest till she feels comfortable. But as she settles in, she’ll start showing off the real Jujubee: A gardening aficionado, a quiet companion, and a sometimes positively silly girl! She’s looking for a calm adoptive home that can give her the time she needs to feel comfortable–preferably with the help of a canine sibling or two (she loves dogs, and gains a lot of confidence from them!).Jujubee loves food and also loves a good game of fetch–two great items for your arsenal when you’re having quality Juju bonding time.

Sweet, snuggly Conan is a spectacular senior who loves hanging out with his family. Somehow he curls his big body into the cutest little Conan cinnabons–and he’ll never say no to more blankets to make his naps extra cozy. And if there’s a sunbeam to add into his nap, even better!When he’s not excelling at the art of napping and snuggling, Conan enjoys snacking on his allergy-approved foods and taking a (brief) stroll to smell the roses. He’ll happily assist you in the kitchen or chew on some toys.

If you’ve been looking for a pajama fashionista to join your family, look no further than Aileen. She’s also a frequent flyer at the spa as she keeps her furs looking glamorous with medicated baths. We promise, though, it’s not what it sounds like--she’s not really a diva! Her fosters report that she’s a wonderful houseguest with great manners. Though she’s most often mellow, she likes to throw in a little silliness here and there!

Mr. Roper is a spritely senior who loves his family, snacks, and a game of tug! He’s happy to trot around for a quick neighborhood walk, or lounge around the house. He embodies the “age is just a number” mentality and often seems puppy-like in his gusto for the things he enjoys. His foster says “He is goofy and curious, and the sweetest dog ever, who can melt your heart with his big gold eyes.”

Smiling, snuggling Sapphire is ready to bring her zen-like friendship and silly mojo to your home! Every morning, she begins the day with a ritual: she sits and presses herself into her foster mom’s chest, getting a long pet and a face massage, complete with piggy snorts and her chin on her FM’s shoulder. If you need a buddy for your morning mindfulness or coffee, Sapphire volunteers (but please don’t stop petting her!). Massages, snuggles, and pats are always welcome in Sapphire’s book, and she’s made a name for herself as “Best Hugger” once she gets to know you.

Sweet, happy Nero is ready to take his petite feet and trot right into your house! This friendly fellow makes for a lovely friend--he enjoys meeting new people (including children) and is a nice mix of playful and happy to hang out.

Sweet, gentle, affectionate Piper is ready to win you over with her goofy smile--she’s simply irresistible! Her foster parents say she’s the poster child for flexible energy. “Piper will happily nap next to me and provide some sweet snoring ASMR as a soundtrack for my workday,” her foster mom says, but when it’s time to go outside, you can expect fun zoomies and lots of play!

Sweet and polite Ellie likes to make new friends and take in everything the world has to offer. On car rides, she enjoys window sniffs and lounging in the back seat. At home, she explores the house, then settles in for a snooze or some sight seeing out the window.

Chonk is the Master of Sploot and a general enthusiast of life. Got a kitchen project or a snack to share? Chonk is on board (shh don’t mention his diet!). Want to dole out pets in front of the air conditioner? Chonk’s down. A car ride? Yep, he’s ready. Meeting new friends? That’ll work!

Sunbeams, seasonal fruits, chairs for exactly 1 (her), and long walks on secluded beaches: these are a few of Peaky’s favorite things. She’s the perfect COVID companion--she strongly prefers 6 feet from strangers and likes to keep the houseguests to members of the pod. Shaking hands and kissing babies may not be her jam, but if you’re a Real One, Peaky’s happy to lounge the day away as your sophisticated sidekick. With time, she’ll start to dole out her patented Peaky Pecks (the teeniest kisses) and press herself next to you on the couch.
