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.

Betsy is looking for a home with big fluffy bed to call her own! Betsy has mastered the art of cuddling--she's 100% down to curl up next to you for a Netflix binge. But don't be fooled by this couch potato, she's always ready to kick up the energy for a walk, hike, or just a quick game a fetch in the yard. Although she enjoys being next to her favorite people, Betsy is also very comfortable in her crate. Aside from some deep sleep (but very cute) snores, she's as quiet as a mouse.

The name “Bug” might be short for “waterbug,” because the first thing this fun-loving boy does when he hits the play yard is jump in the pool and dunk his whole head underwater! Beach lovers and stream-crossers may want to keep Bug at the top of their lists for future best friends, because Bug will never say no to a day where getting wet is guaranteed!

“Lovely” is the word that comes to mind when describing Milk. That, and “irresistibly smoochable, ridiculously large overbite”--though that’s more than one word. This sweet, gentle boy has been enjoying his time in his foster home and is ready to make the leap to his future family. Milk enjoys a good hang on his dog bed, and is happy to learn some new tricks in exchange for treats.

Looking for a best friend? A confidant who’s always ready to hear all about your day, no judgment? An eager Netflix binging buddy who won’t care if you have to rewind 18 times because you were texting? Bree is your gal. This homebody loves her close friends and thrives on structure so that she feels safe and secure. She’s always ready to greet you with her patented wiggles and snuggle up for some love.

One moment with Tiny Tim’s happy smile and helicopter tail wag will light up your day, guaranteed! Tiny Tim came to us after being hit by a car. Despite that unlucky event, Tiny Tim has never been anything but a joyful, lovely dog. He’s recovered fantastically from his hip surgery and is ready to move on to bigger and better thing with you.

California golden boy coming through! Perry has the ultimate sunny disposition and he’s ready to spread it to his future family. We met Perry at the West Valley shelter and immediately fell in love with his silly, playful gallops around the play yard and his eagerness to sidle up for a snuggle.

Smelling the roses, enjoying nature, and curling up in his cozy crate are a few of Willie’s favorite things, and he’d love to share them with you. This sweet, shy boy joined us from the South LA shelter and has been busy experiencing all the new sights and sounds of his foster home.

Tripper the lovely puppy is ready to find his future family! This sweet boy loves a good round of zoomies in the backyard, but is equally happy to snuggle up with his stuffies and watch Netflix. His foster family says they love having this boy at home; he’s totally crate and potty trained, and is loves to show off his “sit” for a treat!

Ash is a fun-loving, wiggly noodle who’s ready to learn and have a blast with you. This happy go lucky guy loves people, including children. Ash has been having a blast in playgroups, and we think he’d be perfectly happy living with another well-matched, playful dog, or holding down the fort solo.

Sweet and friendly Melodie is ready to find her future family. Melodie has a nice flexible energy and is happy to lounge around the house or head out for a walk in the neighborhood. But her favorite activity of all time is getting belly rubs. She makes instant friends with everyone she meets, big or small, if they’re willing to have a major petting-fest with her.
