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 $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.

Start every morning with Waffles! This girl is a sweet treat all around. She loves people and is eager to snuggle up and rest her head on your lap. Expect a lifetime of gentle licks and love from this girl. We think Waffles would be perfectly happy in a home with or without other dogs.

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! One look at this boy’s face and you’ll know why we keep shouting his name--this fun, exuberant, goofy boy will make you fall in love with his hilarious personality. Get ready for every day to be a blast if you bring Beetlejuice home! Added bonus: He already knows “Sit”!

Meet introvert Maeve! She’s a careful observer of the world, who feels most at home on her dog bed taking in the sights and sounds around her. We would be surprised if she’s writing the next Great American Novel. When she’s not busy taking notes on the daily goings-on, Maeve loves to play with her best friend, foster dog Jelina.

Helen’s been pretty busy recently raising her four puppies--but now that they’re out of the house, she’s ready to focus on herself and get adopted! Helen loves people and is a happy, happy girl. Whether you need a best friend, home office assistant, or garden helper, Helen will be quick to accept her new duties. Her one request is that you keep a few toys around--she was known to steal her puppies’ toys for herself for a little fun!

If you’re looking for a dog that embodies the relaxed, easy-going Southern California spirit, Buster’s your boy! Buster has a playful side and enjoys his jaunts to the beach and walks around the neighborhood--but once you’re back home, you can expect to hear him snoring from dreamland. This boy loves his naps!

There are two sides to Jelina: The shy, reserved girl you might see when you first meet her, and the wiggly, happy, playful pup she becomes as soon as she settles in at home. This girl is full of personality and will be happy to show it off when you take her home!

Weezie is an all around chill gal who’s ready to enjoy life by your side. In fact, her foster family says her ideal job would be a relaxation coach--but we’re sure she’d give you a family discount! This mellow girl enjoys car rides, short strolls around the neighborhood, and lounging in the house. Along the way, she’s happy to receive pets from anyone she meets. Getting pets and scratches is one of her favorite activities.When she’s not busy socializing, Weezie enjoys a nice bone or bully stick.

Meet Daryl, the absolute shoe-in for the award we just made up: “Biggest Transformation of a Daryl.” When we first met him, he was scared of pretty much everything and didn’t know much about the world. Now, he likes getting up early to go on a hike, lounging around, and showing off his impressive “woof!”

Carter joined our program from the East Valley shelter during our fire relief efforts. To answer everyone’s question: Yes, his muzzle is as soft as it looks. One smooch and you’ll be hooked! This sweet, smushy boy has been spending his time learning more about the world while in his foster homes.

Sweet Nena is ready to find her forever family. Nena loves all people from big to small--she loves her kid friends just as much as she does adults. Nena walks nicely on leash, knows “sit,” and has great house manners. She’s the perfect addition to any family!
