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.

Butter Bean is the whole package: A goofball, a snuggler, a foodie, an avid gardener, and up for whatever the day has in store. Work from home day? Sounds good, she’ll curl up on her dog bed for a nap. Beach adventure? Yup--get ready to enter warp speed as you gleefully run down the beach with her! Snacking on watermelon, rolling and crawling in the cool grass--it’s all wonderful in Butter Bean’s book.

Zumi is a fun loving young gal who isn’t letting life on three legs slow her down. Zumi is up for whatever the day has in store, whether it’s hopping in the car for low key adventures or hanging at the house. On a recent volunteer outing, she loved giving kisses to her new friend and was happy to be out and about, exploring the neighborhood and taking plenty of cuddle breaks!

Radar: A sensitive soul, an excellent houseguest, and an all around great guy! Radar has made himself a fixture in his foster family, impressing everyone with his lovely demeanor. Though he’s a bit shy to start, he warms up to new people quickly--from that point, you can expect big wiggles, funny hops of excitement, lots of affection and a friend that always wants to be close by, whether you’re watching TV or working on Zoom. He loves to dole out polite kisses and lean his big horsey self against you for infinite scratches.

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! She shows more and more personality the longer she knows you.

Bruno is a big softy with a heart of gold. This definition of a gentle giant will win your heart with his crooked underbite and his funny booty wiggles. Bruno is always happy to his family--you’ll know by his sweet, constantly wagging tail. He’s got a silly side, too, and likes to play with you by bouncing around you (but he’s very polite and makes sure not to jump on you!). If he’s really feeling goofy, you might get to see his patented bucking bronco moves!

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.”

Saint is a big, sensitive teddy bear looking for a family who can provide him lots of love and support. Saint is a volunteer favorite with his mushy personality, wiggly butt, and high IQ (this guy is smart, and loves to show off his signature “paw” move!). You could lose an entire day to massaging his big wrinkly head.

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!

If you have snuggles to spare and have room in your life for a giant love bug, Aleah is your girl. After being a rockstar mom to her puppies, Aleah is enjoying her independent lifestyle. She loves to meet new people on her daily walks and coffee shop outings with her foster mom. When she’s not out on the town, Aleah has discovered the art of watching TV, couch napping, and helping out with odds and ends around the house. Her foster mom says “Aleah is the sweetest dog I’ve ever met. She follows me around and constantly wants cuddles.”

She’s a great houseguest, a pats-loving sidekick, and is extra extra cute when she’s curled up tight on her dog bed--she’s Margie! This stunning lady has been impressing her foster family with her fantastic house manners, and spends her days meandering in and out of her crate for naps, heading out for walks to practice her skills, and being an overall fantastic companion.
