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.

Kima and each of her ears say HI THERE! We've been assured that she is actually, truly a dog and not a bat, but we're skeptical.This girl is having a blast in her foster home and taking in all the smells of her neighborhood. She loves a zoom or a hike just as much as a nap on her pillow throne. Kima is also a real smarty pants and learned her basic commands in approximately 2 seconds. No problem! She is currently training with our partners at Paws For Life in Lancaster Prison and we expect she'll graduate as valedictorian!

Potential new best friend alert! In her foster's own words, Narwhal is "the epitome of what a pit bull is" and a "gentle and shy DOOFUS!" This beautiful gal is the best of all worlds - more than happy to soak up a sunbeam while you WFH, but equally ready to w-a-l-k as soon as you pick up her leash. She just wants to be with her people, no matter what they're doing.Narwhal is working on her basic commands, and will do just about anything for a snack-o.

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.

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.

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.
