NKLA Pet Adoption Center

Angel City Pit Bulls is proud to be a coalition member in the Best Friends Animal Society initiative, NKLA (No Kill Los Angeles). NKLA is a coalition of animal welfare organizations dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. city shelters.  To aid in achieving this goal, Best Friends has opened a new state-of-the-art adoption facility where over 100 dogs and cats from Best Friends and a variety of other rescue groups will be showcased. We are excited for the opportunity to be a part of this new adoption facility and to showcase our wonderful family pets.

The NKLA Pet Adoption Center has its own adoption specialists who are trained to support potential adopters in finding the right animal for their home. If you are interested in adopting one of our NKLA dogs, please visit the center to speak with their specialists.

The Pet Center adoption fees differ slightly from ours; the adoption fee is $350 for puppies and $250 for adult dogs.

If you have questions about the NKLA Pet Adoption Center, please email Becca at

Gentle, kind Mugsy joined us from Carson shelter during the NKLA Super Adoption weekend. Shetler staff sent him off with his favorite hippo toy, which he dotes on and keeps safe at his foster home. In love yet? Mugsy’s foster parents describe him as an all around good boy--he’s a chill, smushy guy who enjoys his crate. Every volunteer who’s met him has fallen hard for this awesome dog.
