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.

Elmo is a sweet and squishy guy who we met at the South LA Shelter. He is gentle, has a nice, calm energy, and did very well in his playgroups at the shelter. We think Elmo would be a great addition to a home with or without another dog, as he is social and takes cues well from both other dogs and people.

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.

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.

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.

Hennessey is incredibly sweet, calm girl who we eagerly brought into our program from the Pasadena Humane Society. This senior sweetie would make a lovely addition to many homes.

Athena is an adorable low-rider from the South LA Shelter, where she performed wonderfully in playgroups. We think she could live nicely with another dog, or would be just fine as the only pet.

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.

Bubba is quite adorable and what we call "bomb proof". This happy pup can thrive in a variety of situations or homes, and gets along nicely with just about anyone -- canine, feline, children and adult. We think he would be a great addition to a family with or without other pets.

Bree is a happy, friendly and obedient girl who we met at the South LA Shelter. She enjoys the company of other dogs, and we think she would do well in a home with a well-matched companion, though could also be the only dog in the house. Bree is a quiet, easy-going dog who is happy to chew on a bone or Kong in her crate for some down time.

Meet Nemo... He is the cutest little fish around! He is an affectionate, goofy guy who loves hanging out with his people. As much as he likes to snuggle and give kisses, Nemo likes to play. He loves goofing around with other dogs that have a rough and tumble play-style too.
