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.

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.

Cookie came our way via the South LA Animal Shelter where her upbeat, confident and social demeanor made her a favorite among volunteers. She greets every person with a big smile and a tail twirl. With her medium energy level, Cookie is the type of dog who would gladly engage in a training session, or venture out for a hike or brisk stroll, however she is also content with napping in her crate and really enjoys having yard access.

Meet Baxter! This naturally happy dog doesn't need a reason to trot around town with a big grin on his face. In his time in our program, Baxter has become a volunteer and foster parent favorite, and now he's looking for a family of his own to smile back at 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.
