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.

Have you been wanting to get to know your neighbors a bit better? Riff can help with that. Riff's foster mom has described him as a "bundle of joy" and honestly, we get it. He's that cute and quirky guy who seems to make friends with everyone he comes across. Riff loves to meet new people and solicit pats and snuggles from anyone with hands. Or a lap. Or maybe even feet. He's willing to be creative!

We love a glow up! Cotton Candy came to us with some pretty crusty and gnarly skin, but thanks to many baths and a tremendous amount of TLC from her foster mom, she's looking fuzzy and fresh.Now that she's got her groove back, Cotton Candy is starting to show off her zany personality. She has an expert green thumb and likes to wreak havoc, I mean help her foster mom out in the garden with her signature Cotton Candy Plants Dance™.She's happy, friendly, zoomy, and getting furrier by the day.

Behold the Frenchman! Remy may not _exactly_ be what you'd call a pit bull type dog, but he does have Big Dog Energy. This little guy is out to prove that he can love and play as hard as a dog twice his size.Remy recently completed training and learned all the goodboy things from our friends from Paws For Live at the California State Prison in Lancaster. His trainers note that he picks up on training quickly and will work for some splash time. What can we say? The guy loves water. Remy's trainers also love how affectionate he is.

Seppia is our resident spaghetti noodle puppy who's ready to flop into your heart (and lap). Her vibes are all peace and love, and her verbs are all wiggle and smooch. She sees every new person she meets as a new potential BFF. This gal is a total prom queen!Seppia has been having a great time in her foster home playing with her temporary dog sisters. All that puppy energy radiates out through some delightfully floppy and gangly playtime. Seppia would love to live with another dog playmate, but would be equally happy cuddled up next to her favorite human.

Looking for a living reminder to have a little fun every day? Hiro's your guy. This sweet dude's got a "play every day" mindset and wants you to join in. Hiro's perfect day would start with a good morning romp. Got another dog? He'll be happy to bop around and watch cartoons with his brother or sister until you're ready to rise. Then it's off to brunch where he'll take in the sights. Hiro loves to people-watch from beneath an outdoor cafe table. And he's not going to _complain_ if you drop a piece of bacon directly into his gob.After lunch (and maybe a nap), it's play time again.

The name of the game here is Happy. Puppy. Energy.Sprint recently had a hockey stick appendage (that's official medical terminology for "broken leg in a cast"), but he absolutely it didn't dull his sparkle for a single second. He's a sweet, goofy, and curious boy who just loves to do his activities thanks very much!Now that he's all patched up, Sprint's livin' the fast life. But actually fast, not the rap song "fast life." He's getting in all the sports and athletics that he missed out on earlier in the form of romping with any dog that's willing to play.

Recipe for Brandi - One million parts kisses, infinity parts zoom, unmeasured cuddles (add with your heart). Wiggle until combined.Brandi is the most deliciously joyful girl around. She absolutely loves to nuzzle and distribute free kisses. She has a particularly long and pointy snoot that's perfect for licking inside ears, so watch yourself!This delightful gal has been recovering from a back injury and has made it clear that bed rest is so not for her. She's ready to get back to her sports, starting with parkour. She's built for speed and love.

Kuma says come on!!! She's all packed and ready to to hiking, mall slumming, and off-roading adventuring with you! This fun loving girl is looking for a partner in crime to take on the town with. She loves engaging in LA's outdoor activities (yes, that includes an open air mall stroll) and wants to help you close those exercise circles on your Apple watch.While she loves pats as much as the next dog, she's not the definition of a cuddle bug. It's more of an "I love you, but we don't need to spoon as we sleep" situation.She enjoys meeting new people, especially when they have snacks to share.

HERE COMES THE HOG!!Was Pig Dog the muse and inspiration behind the 2007 classic "Wild Hogs"? The basic principals of time say "no," but frankly, we're not convinced.The guy is a total ham (not sorry) who loves adventures, friends, and endless romps. He recently completed training with our pals at Paws for Life where he was not only a smarty pants student, but the prince of the playground.

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.
