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.

Hey parents, you know the sweet sweet freedom that hits when you drop your kid off at college and all of a sudden no one's leaving their stinky socks everywhere or bugging you to cook dinner or asking for _another_ $20?Just picture Poppins raising up one paw and barking "amen!" She recently weaned her eleven(!!) puppies and is absolutely living for her newfound lack of responsibilities. No more tiny shark teeth snapping for lunch. Just backyard romps with her foster home's resident dog and blissfully uninterrupted naps.

Look at this distinguished gentleman with his distinguished socks!

Special boy alert! Meet Dash. This sweet boy has specific medical needs stemming from his mostly non-functional hind legs, but he's certainly scooted into our hearts. Dash loves affection from his people and would be delighted to to accompany you to brunch in his special going out stroller. This is LA and we see dogs in buggies all the time but this time, it's warranted.Dash has been trained to zip around on a sweet set of wheels (yes, disabled dogs love walkies too!) and also uses a harness or sling during his rehab sessions.

Hawke joined us from Best Friends in Utah to help them make space for New Mexico fire relief. Hawke is great with big dogs, small dogs and cats.This guy is a total goofball and lover. He adores people and has been described as soft, affectionate, and sickeningly sweet. As a new LA transplant, he can find things like construction and other loud city noises a little spooky, but is getting more and more comfortable every day. He likes to work on his fitness with walkies (he is great on leash!), romps with his dog friends, and gentle, goofy play sessions with people.

Okay would you just look at that SMILE?! Burr has had a ruff start to life, medically speaking, but is feeling better every day. He's making up for lost time by partying with his friends in play-groups and learning his ABCs in ACPB Academy. He's happy, derpy, and energetic in a way that can best be described as "floopy." Burr's got his air guitar tuned up and is ready to rock n' roll with the right human.

Vibe alert! Quinn is a smushy and snuggly guy who can best be described as a weekend getaway in Malibu.Quinn is currently in foster with two other calm dogs and loves napping in their general presence. While he's down for a gentle and dainty play session, Quinn is often even happier when allowed to sniff around and wander at his own leisure. He loves a sniffy stroll and saying hello to the neighbors. He's a sweet guy who's just looking for a chill pad and an equally chill human.

Ever wish your favorite stuffy would come to life? Well Croissant is the softest, fluffiest teddy bear around. He's a goofy boy who loves to romp around with his dog friends until he's tired enough to zonk out.This guy absolutely lives for a pool party. You know that guy at the house party who gets a little goofy and jumps into the pool fully clothed? That's Croissant. He's the Michael Phelps of a kiddie pool... or a water bowl if it's not nailed down. Croissant has been learning his basic commands in ACPB Academy.

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!

Star student alert! Gracey recently graduated from the K9 Connection Program and has since been keeping up with her new skills via ACPB Academy. She recently received a special commendation as "great to have in class." If you're looking for a beauty with brains, Gracey is for you.
