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.

If you have snuggles to spare and have room in your life for a giant love bug, Aleah is your girl. After being a rockstar mom to her puppies, Aleah is enjoying her independent lifestyle. She loves to meet new people on her daily walks and coffee shop outings with her foster mom. When she’s not out on the town, Aleah has discovered the art of watching TV, couch napping, and helping out with odds and ends around the house. Her foster mom says “Aleah is the sweetest dog I’ve ever met. She follows me around and constantly wants cuddles.”

With his ice blue eyes and adorable curled paws when he’s resting, Captain America is sure to make an impression. Captain America is an excellent buddy for any of life’s activities, whether your day includes a neighborhood walk, a hike, or hanging out at home. He’s a volunteer favorite with his pleasant manners and lovely leash skills.

If you missed the story of the Wuzzles: On a hot summer day, the Wuzzles were picked up on an ill-advised walkabout. One of them (Butterbear) was suffering from extreme heat stroke, and the rest (Hoppopotamus, Bumblelion, and Eleroo) weren't in great shape, either. All four were varying shades of fearful of the big brave world.

She’s a great houseguest, a pats-loving sidekick, and is extra extra cute when she’s curled up tight on her dog bed--she’s Margie! This stunning lady has been impressing her foster family with her fantastic house manners, and spends her days meandering in and out of her crate for naps, heading out for walks to practice her skills, and being an overall fantastic companion.

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.

The name’s Bug--Professor Bug to his colleagues. Like the greatest academic minds, he’s equal parts brilliant, sensitive, and neurotic (not to mention, dashingly handsome!) and is looking for a family that can appreciate his multitudes. Bug is a graduate of ACPB Academy, where he quickly mastered his basic obedience. He took his aptitude back to his foster home, where he began cracking advanced level coursework like learning to drop his tennis ball to keep a game of fetch going, which he’ll happily do for an hour straight.

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.

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.
