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.

Harlow is a sweet, enthusiastic and eager to please lady who came our way via the South LA Shelter. Harlow gets along great with other dogs, and even cats; she is about 1 1/2 years old, weighs approximately 55 pounds and is looking for her forever home at the NKLA Pet Adoption Center. Harlow is up to date on routine vaccinations, micro-chipped, crate-trained, house-trained and working on her basic commands.

Sabrina joined our foster program via the East Valley Shelter. This happy and eager young girl is very social, and likes to greet dogs and humans alike with kisses. Sabrina thrives among other dogs and would fit nicely into a multi-dog family, but would also be perfectly content as the only dog. She is food-motivated and earnestly performs her commands for treats.

Tommy is an adorable combination of sweet and goofy -- the kind of dog that you can't help smiling around. He is playful and fun, yet he loves snuggle time with his people most of all. Handsome Tommy is one of those wonderfully simple and easy dogs, all silly grins and pure joy; just don't ask him to solve complex math equations (he would much rather smile at himself in the mirror). He is a soft-hearted guy and while he continues to build his confidence, he is eager to explore and learn.

Max came to Angel City by way of the South LA Shelter. Max fills his days by playing with his foster sister, lounging around the house and spending some quality time in his crate. His flexible energy makes him a good fit for various households; he is the type of dog who would happily join you for a rigorous hike, or alternatively go for a short walk followed by an afternoon cuddle session. Max loves to play with other dogs, but would also be content as the only dog in the home.

Meet Baxter; he is a joy to be around and we just had to take him into our program! Baxter is very affectionate; he loves to lay at your feet and snuggle with you at home, he is a lovely movie-watching partner. Bax is a delight to take on a nice walk or brisk hike, and he will gladly go for a romp in the yard. He is quick to learn new skills and would do great with agility coursework.

Fred is a handsome hunk whom we met at the West LA Shelter. Fred is a well known hipster in his neighborhood and attracts the attention of all when out for a stroll. He is a relaxed and chill dude who enjoys meeting people and other dogs. At home, Fred considers himself a lap dog and prefers to spend his time in the spoon position; cuddling is one his favorite hobbies. Fred's other hobbies include chewing on a bone, taking a nap, and hanging out with his foster parents.

Steve is such a happy camper! He is so enthusiastic and loves life, is fantastic with kids and is wonderful in the house. Steve is smart, has a great personality and loves his crate. He would do great in a home as the only dog or with another well-matched dog. Steve is such a wonderful companion and great TV-watching buddy.

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.
