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.

Marley joined us from the South LA shelter where she won us over with her sweet, connected personality. You won’t be able to forget this cute girl’s signature one-ear-up, one-ear-down look. In addition to having good ear fashion sense, Marley has a nice flexible energy level. She loves her walks and hikes, but she also enjoys chilling in her crate or taking a nap on the dog bed.

Bubba is a sweet, happy boy who’s looking for a home that’s prepared to give and receive a lot of love. Bubba loves other dogs and cats and would make a great addition to a multi-pet home, though he’s perfectly capable of soaking up all of your affection on his own.

We met Ellie at the South LA shelter, where she impressed us with her sweet, connected nature. Ellie is a bit timid, but looks to people for reassurance. After a few minutes of ear pets, she warms up and enjoys everyone’s company.

Meet Bugsy! This outgoing boy is enjoying his time in our program, where he’s thrilled to meet any and all new human friends and soak up the pets they have to offer. When he’s not busy as the president of his own social committee, he enjoys relaxing in his crate and playing with his canine foster siblings.

Lindsay joined our program in October of 2015, when she was diagnosed with kidney failure. We expected this sweet, happy girl to be considered a hospice case and were ready to make her days as enjoyable as possible. We got a big surprise a few months ago when her blood work revealed that her kidney functions were back in normal range--meaning Lindsay has quite a few good years ahead of her and is a candidate for adoption.

Tank came our way through a good samaritan who found him along with his sister while out walking her dog and they followed her home! After some TLC and time spent in our program, Tank is now ready to find his forever home.

We met Raleigh at the South LA Shelter, and we think he is an all-around awesome dog! He is fun, athletic, and truly wonderful with other dogs. If he were in high school, he would be the fun-loving jock that everyone wanted to hang around. So far, nothing really seems to upset him, and he loves to please. He would be a great match for a wide range of adopters.

Francine Moody joined our program with her sister from the South LA Shelter. She has focused most of her energy in her foster home building confidence and learning about home life. Francine would benefit from a home that can give her patience and guidance as she continues to blossom.

Pops is an awesome easy-going senior. He is about 14 years old, quiet, calm and loves to be outside and sunbathe. He does great with other dogs and people.

We met Cassidy at the Super Adoption and welcomed here into our program. She is a sweet girl, who we think would enjoy the company of another dog, or be equally happy as your only pet.
