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.

May is a fun loving girl who loves people, playing, and dog friends! This sweet girl joined our program after we met her during recent fire relief efforts at the West LA shelter. Though she may be a little scruffier than our typical “pit bull,” her lovely demeanor had us hooked--once you meet her and see her silly “oops, my lip’s caught on my tooth” smile, we think you’ll understand.

Chiclet is the ultimate sidekick, ready to join you for whatever life has in store! Her foster says she’s incredibly easy going, low energy, loving, and very well behaved! She loves cats and other dogs too! Chiclet mostly enjoys casually mingling with other dogs, but watch out! Every now and then she’ll get a serious case of the zoomies that might just be the cutest thing ever.

Sweet, sensitive Jasper joined our program during fire relief efforts and quickly won the hearts of everyone he met. This young boy is a major cuddler and has a fun, puppy-like demeanor that will keep a smile on your face. He loves his toys and is known to take them right into his crate to have a private chew session.

Have you ever seen a dog be so happy to see you that their whole body wags? That’s Minerva! Minerva loves, loves, LOVES people. You’ll get to see her signature full body wag when she lights up, happy as can be to make a new friend.

Anne is a hilarious, eager to please, leaping, frolicking, good girl! Anne attends ACPB Academy and Dog Man training classes with volunteers, and she’s been impressing us left and right with how nicely she works with her handler! She’ll be excited to keep training with you as she takes on her new neighborhood and home life.

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!

Spend one moment with Goldfish and you’ll fall in love with his goofy, floppy puppy ways. This young lad is charming as can be, and has been busy winning over volunteers. He’s tons of fun, and equally sweet and endearing. And he’s great with dogs, too! Goldfish loves coming out to playgroups, where he easily fits in with many types of dogs. Now he’s just waiting for his future family to come along!

Every morning is great when it starts with a walk with Starling. Her nice leash manners and breezy gait are so enchanting you could spend your whole morning strolling! Starling joined us from the South LA shelter, and has made quick work of settling in as an Angel City foster. Between getting to know the volunteers and heading out to playgroups, she keeps her schedule busy--but always makes time for a nice nap in her crate.

As his namesake suggests, Cannoli is a treat who never fails to satisfy your need for sweetness! This big, smushy boy is never in a hurry, but always enjoys what’s on the agenda. Whether it’s head scratches, snuggling, meeting new people, beebopping around the neighborhood, or assisting in the kitchen, Cannoli will happily make his way from activity to activity.

“To make a long story short, she’s amazing.” That’s what one volunteer had to say after spending a day with the one and only Millie! Millie is an accomplished couch snuggler, TV binger, bed napper, belly rub enthusiast--and as much love as you can dish out, she’ll give it right back to you! In between enjoying her many lovefests, Millie also has a curious and playful side to her. She’s always ready to smell the roses along her short neighborhood strolls.
