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.

If Gloria had a job, it would be that of a trusted advisor. Wise and usually quiet, Gloria is always right by your side to provide support and encouragement. Now she’s ready to bring her steady companionship to your home.

Q-Tip has been busy living the life of a #influencer for the past few months (follow her on Instagram at @qtipsglowup) as she recovered from a rough start in life, but now it’s time for her to embark on creating the ultimate aspirational content: Finding her future family!

If you need a smile on your face 24/7, you need to meet Peppa. In her opinion, every day is a Peppa Party, and everyone’s invited! Though Peppa is deaf, that doesn’t stop her from living in the moment--it doesn’t slow her down one bit on her quest to play with all the dogs and get pets from all the people.

With her unique markings and happy attitude, Arielle turns heads wherever she goes! This gorgeous girl has won over volunteers with her sweet demeanor and readiness for whatever activities the day brings. She has a nice flexible energy, which often expresses itself as a burst of happy excitement and then settles into a nice, calm rhythm.

If you believe that ball is life and things that are derpier are just better, might we introduce you to Arby? Arby joined us by way of Dogs Playing For Life’s National Canine Center, where he underwent extensive training--in fact, he was almost an explosives detection dog, but a hip surgery held him back from going to work!

The name “Bug” might be short for “waterbug,” because the first thing this fun-loving boy does when he hits the play yard is jump in the pool and dunk his whole head underwater! Beach lovers and stream-crossers may want to keep Bug at the top of their lists for future best friends, because Bug will never say no to a day where getting wet is guaranteed!

Danny Boy falls hard and fast for his people--will you be his next best friend? Danny Boy loves to relax at home, lounging on his dog bed or in his crate while his foster mom works. If there’s a good sunbeam to be had, he’ll spend the whole morning following it around for his naps. Want to snuggle? Danny Boy’s in! He’s a big softie at heart.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the Italian countryside, listening to truffle-hunting pigs finding decadent toppings for your dinner. Open them, and reality is even better: It’s Lucille, doing her signature snort-and-waddle around the yard. This cute and silly girl joined us from the South LA shelter and is ready to win over her forever family with her hilarious noises and sweet smile.

Meet Nemo... He is the cutest little fish around! He is an affectionate, goofy guy who loves hanging out with his people. 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.
