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.

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.

Koda is a lap dog who looks like a teddy bear--his tail never stops wagging and every new person is a friend for him to cuddle with. At home, he loves spending time with his family, cherishing his special toys, and finding a sunbeam to nap in.

Sweet, gentle, affectionate Piper is ready to win you over with her goofy smile--she’s simply irresistible! Her foster parents say she’s the poster child for flexible energy. “Piper will happily nap next to me and provide some sweet snoring ASMR as a soundtrack for my workday,” her foster mom says, but when it’s time to go outside, you can expect fun zoomies and lots of play!

Chunky has a larger than life personality--he’s the kind of dog that will keep you laughing and make you feel like the most special person ever. Sharing his time with people is on the top of his list of favorite things--right up there with sharing a snack, which he is also quite fond of. Bananas included! Chunky has an adorable butt wiggle you’ll experience every time he greets you, even if he just saw you 20 seconds ago.

Bruno is a big softy with a heart of gold. This definition of a gentle giant will win your heart with his crooked underbite and his funny booty wiggles. Bruno is always happy to his family--you’ll know by his sweet, constantly wagging tail. He’s got a silly side, too, and likes to play with you by bouncing around you (but he’s very polite and makes sure not to jump on you!). If he’s really feeling goofy, you might get to see his patented bucking bronco moves!

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.

Stuffies, snuggles, strolls, and snackers. These are Teddy’s top priorities--who’s ready to give the man what he wants?! Teddy is a delightful senior with plenty of pep in his step. He is the epitome of a flexible energy, easy come easy go kind of dog. Want to hit the neighborhood for a stroll? Teddy’s in, ready to sniff all the smells on the way.

Mr. Roper is a spritely senior who loves his family, snacks, and a game of tug! He’s happy to trot around for a quick neighborhood walk, or lounge around the house. He embodies the “age is just a number” mentality and often seems puppy-like in his gusto for the things he enjoys. His foster says “He is goofy and curious, and the sweetest dog ever, who can melt your heart with his big gold eyes.”

Saint is a big, sensitive teddy bear looking for a family who can provide him lots of love and support. Saint is a volunteer favorite with his mushy personality, wiggly butt, and high IQ (this guy is smart, and loves to show off his signature “paw” move!). You could lose an entire day to massaging his big wrinkly head.

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!
