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.

Meet Dorothy and just try not to smile--this goofy girl is a total love bug and will have you cracking up with her physical comedy routine. This friendly, smiling, loving girl has been making friends all over town since joining our program from the South LA shelter.

Courtney impressed her way into our program with her low, friendly tail wag and “volunteer favorite” status at East Valley shelter. This gorgeous young girl was in play groups at the shelter and is now enjoying being mentored by her canine foster brother. Courtney’s favorite activity is getting affection. Sloppy kisses aren’t her style but she’ll happily rest her chin on you while you rub her chest or ears.

Morris joined us from East Valley shelter. This charming guy loves to shake paws to greet his new friends, especially if a treat comes right after. Morris loves strolling around the neighborhood with a big happy smile, and he equally enjoys all the compliments he gets along the way.

McKenna joined us from the East Valley shelter in our fire relief efforts. Once she settled in at her foster home, she revealed herself to be a super sweet and sometimes silly girl who enjoys an occasional round of zoomies in the yard. McKenna has enjoyed spending time with her canine foster siblings and did well on her initial cat test.

Gizzmo is one of our ten Hurricane Harvey transplants that joined our program from Texas. This happy, friendly boy won over our hurricane response team and when the time came for us to take some Texas dogs into our program, we were thrilled to extend the invite to Gizzmo.

Looking for a world-wizened dog who’s got it all figured out? Snoop’s your guy. At 8 years young, he’s been there, done that, and is ready to bring his “cool dude” attitude to his forever home. Snoop’s favorite activity is his neighborhood walks, and to sweeten the deal, he’s fantastic on leash.

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.

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.

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.
