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.

Kuma says come on!!! She's all packed and ready to to hiking, mall slumming, and off-roading adventuring with you! This fun loving girl is looking for a partner in crime to take on the town with. She loves engaging in LA's outdoor activities (yes, that includes an open air mall stroll) and wants to help you close those exercise circles on your Apple watch.While she loves pats as much as the next dog, she's not the definition of a cuddle bug. It's more of an "I love you, but we don't need to spoon as we sleep" situation.She enjoys meeting new people, especially when they have snacks to share.

HERE COMES THE HOG!!Was Pig Dog the muse and inspiration behind the 2007 classic "Wild Hogs"? The basic principals of time say "no," but frankly, we're not convinced.The guy is a total ham (not sorry) who loves adventures, friends, and endless romps. He recently completed training with our pals at Paws for Life where he was not only a smarty pants student, but the prince of the playground.

Look at this distinguished gentleman with his distinguished socks! According to his foster mom, Bobby Socks' would love to curl up by the fire on a fine leather chesterfield with smooth jazz playing on the record player and an old fashioned at the ready. With his favorite person of course. He loves to cuddle and spend quiet together moments with his people.Bobby Socks is working on his confidence (same) and looks to his people for reassurance that everything's okay. If you're looking for a BFF for the chill life of Netflix, naps, and small adventures, Bobby Socks might be the guy for you!

Special boy alert! Meet Dash. This sweet boy has specific medical needs stemming from his mostly non-functional hind legs, but he's certainly scooted into our hearts. Dash loves affection from his people and would be delighted to to accompany you to brunch in his special going out stroller. This is LA and we see dogs in buggies all the time but this time, it's warranted.Dash has been trained to zip around on a sweet set of wheels (yes, disabled dogs love walkies too!) and also uses a harness or sling during his rehab sessions.

Ever wish your favorite stuffy would come to life? Well Croissant is the softest, fluffiest teddy bear around. He's a goofy boy who loves to romp around with his dog friends until he's tired enough to zonk out.This guy absolutely lives for a pool party. You know that guy at the house party who gets a little goofy and jumps into the pool fully clothed? That's Croissant. He's the Michael Phelps of a kiddie pool... or a water bowl if it's not nailed down. Croissant has been learning his basic commands in ACPB Academy.

Smiling, snuggling Sapphire is ready to bring her zen-like friendship and silly mojo to your home! Every morning, she begins the day with a ritual: she sits and presses herself into her foster mom’s chest, getting a long pet and a face massage, complete with piggy snorts and her chin on her FM’s shoulder. If you need a buddy for your morning mindfulness or coffee, Sapphire volunteers (but please don’t stop petting her!). Massages, snuggles, and pats are always welcome in Sapphire’s book, and she’s made a name for herself as “Best Hugger” once she gets to know you.

Sweet, happy Nero is ready to take his petite feet and trot right into your house! This friendly fellow makes for a lovely friend--he enjoys meeting new people (including children) and is a nice mix of playful and happy to hang out.

Sweet and polite Ellie likes to make new friends and take in everything the world has to offer. On car rides, she enjoys window sniffs and lounging in the back seat. At home, she explores the house, then settles in for a snooze or some sight seeing out the window.

Chonk is the Master of Sploot and a general enthusiast of life. Got a kitchen project or a snack to share? Chonk is on board (shh don’t mention his diet!). Want to dole out pets in front of the air conditioner? Chonk’s down. A car ride? Yep, he’s ready. Meeting new friends? That’ll work!

Sunbeams, seasonal fruits, chairs for exactly 1 (her), and long walks on secluded beaches: these are a few of Peaky’s favorite things. She’s the perfect COVID companion--she strongly prefers 6 feet from strangers and likes to keep the houseguests to members of the pod. Shaking hands and kissing babies may not be her jam, but if you’re a Real One, Peaky’s happy to lounge the day away as your sophisticated sidekick. With time, she’ll start to dole out her patented Peaky Pecks (the teeniest kisses) and press herself next to you on the couch.
