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 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.

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.

Kima and each of her ears say HI THERE! We've been assured that she is actually, truly a dog and not a bat, but we're skeptical.This girl is having a blast in her foster home and taking in all the smells of her neighborhood. She loves a zoom or a hike just as much as a nap on her pillow throne. Kima is also a real smarty pants and learned her basic commands in approximately 2 seconds. No problem! She is currently training with our partners at Paws For Life in Lancaster Prison and we expect she'll graduate as valedictorian!

Hello spitfire! If you're looking for an adventure buddy, Greta would love to take down your contact info, thanks very much. This gal loves a good hike, a romp with her dog pals, or a training sesh (for treats, of course). Need to run an errand? No problem. Give this girl a chew toy in her crate and she'll make her own fun. Greta can get a little concerned about the general chaos of the world and prefers a zen vibe to the hustle and bustle of the city (girl, same).Greta recently graduated from the Paws For Life training program at Lancaster Prison and wants to show you her skills!

Would you just look at this sweet, special boy! Occhio has some medical issues that impact his eyes and limbs, but don't tell him that. He's as happy and floppy as any (huge) puppy should be. He is equally happy to romp around with a dog friend or nap in a sunbeam. Occhio also has excellent crate manners and will happily snooze while you're out of the house.

Potential new best friend alert! In her foster's own words, Narwhal is "the epitome of what a pit bull is" and a "gentle and shy DOOFUS!" This beautiful gal is the best of all worlds - more than happy to soak up a sunbeam while you WFH, but equally ready to w-a-l-k as soon as you pick up her leash. She just wants to be with her people, no matter what they're doing.Narwhal is working on her basic commands, and will do just about anything for a snack-o.
