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.

Curious, affectionate, happy Ethelyn is ready to become a part of your family. Ethelyn always has a smile on her face--in fact, we think school photos might be her favorite day. This girl can “cheese!”

With her unique markings and happy attitude, Arielle turns heads wherever she goes! This gorgeous girl has won over volunteers with her sweet demeanor and readiness for whatever activities the day brings. She has a nice flexible energy, which often expresses itself as a burst of happy excitement and then settles into a nice, calm rhythm.

Amamos a Esteban! If you’ve been looking for a goofy friend with a sweet, happy disposition, Esteban is your guy. Even if you left the room 10 minutes ago, he is always so happy to see you when you return. It might be because he’s waiting for his favorite thing: an epic pet session! He likes to lean his head on you and make hilarious little noises of appreciation any time he gets attention.

Gecko is a jovial, easygoing fellow who’s ready to take in every day’s delights with you. Whether it’s a stroll around the neighborhood or a relaxing day on the couch, Gecko is game! Since joining our foster program from the West Valley shelter, Gecko has kept his schedule packed with making friends with volunteers, taking meandering strolls around Jefferson Park, and becoming quite the hoot in playgroups!

Saint is a big teddy bear looking for a family who can provide 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!).

Leo has a new lease on life and he’s ready to kick it off with his future family! This sweet boy originally joined us from the South LA shelter with suspected bladder cancer. Many tests and a surgery later, it was confirmed that Leo simply had some bladder stones and a mass that needed to be removed--and since then, he’s been living large! In fact, his foster family says if Leo could pick a job, it would be as a tour guide on a double decker bus. He loves meeting new people and letting the wind blow through his ears as he takes in the scenery!

Pumpkin is an XL velvety girl who knows her stuff and is ready to fit right into your home. Pumpkin received 6 weeks of training at Lancaster State Prison courtesy of our friends at Paws For Life k9. Her trainers had this to say about her: "Pumpkin is extremely intelligent and learns quickly. To say she loves affection would be understated. She is a total LOVE BUG."

Pebbles is a sophisticated snuggle buddy and she’s ready to make your acquaintance--preferably on a comfy couch! Her foster family describes Pebbles as a “precious gem” and it’s no surprise why--this low energy gal makes every day lovely with her presence.

If you believe that ball is life and things that are derpier are just better, might we introduce you to Arby? Arby joined us by way of Dogs Playing For Life’s National Canine Center, where he underwent extensive training--in fact, he was almost an explosives detection dog, but a hip surgery held him back from going to work!

Mama: An accomplished snuggler, a keen adventure trotter, an ice cream enthusiast, a toy hoarder to the max. She’s a whirling dervish of 100% delight--she is who she is. Mama joined us as part of a long journey that began in Canada, where she was confiscated as part of a dog fighting bust. After a several years long battle for the dogs to be released to rescue, Mama made her way to the Dogs Playing For Life National Canine Center in Florida for a chance to have a brighter future.
