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.

Rocco is a fun loving puppy looking for a best friend. We met this goofball while he was cruising around playgroups at the East Valley shelter and loved his cowabunga attitude. Sure enough, he fit right into our program and loves making new friends in the yard, dog and human alike.

There’s a lot of kindness in Lucca, and he’s ready to give it all to you. Lucca’s signature move is to rub up against your leg and lean, tilting his head up to you with a big smile, as if to say, “Isn’t this the greatest?” And yep, he’s right: it is! His presence is enough to put a smile on your face; he’s at once calm, happy, and engaging.

Clifton’s friends describe him as smart, sweet, and attentive--sounds like the total package to us. We love seeing all of Clifton’s different sides, from his focused training mode to his goofy, happy self when he’s out in the yard.

Talk about a comeback--Nicolette’s story is ready for the big screen. Nicolette was in the shelter system for a year; we learned about her when her arthritis became too advanced for her to comfortably stay in the shelter. We welcomed her into our program thinking she would be one of our Angels, but once she got on some good medication to manage her aches and pains, it quickly became apparent that Nicolette has a lot more life to live! Nicolette is now ready to be adopted and enjoy fun in the sun for the rest of her days.

Does anyone have a belly rub to spare for Eclair? Sweet, soft, and affectionate, she’s ready for all the kisses, hugs, and pets you have to offer. She considers herself a great house guest and is ready to make her next move into her future family’s home!

Beaufort hasn’t let his special needs keep him from enjoying life to the fullest. This loving boy came to us with a tethered cord that required spinal surgery. After months of rehab and physical therapy, he’s made the transition back into a foster home and is doing great!

If you color code your planner and already know what you’re doing on Tuesday 3 months from now, Pipetta wants to chat. She loves to swap strategies on routines and schedules, because that’s what works for her!

We aren’t sure who sent Fuzzy Nelson here or what he's doing on Earth. What we are sure of is that this very special dog needs a very special home for however much more time he needs to complete his mission.

Redford will make you feel like the most special person in the world, every day. This boy falls hard and fast for his people--just ask his foster mom, who gets an excited, smiling greeting from Redford every day when she comes home from work.

Meet Daryl, the absolute shoe-in for the award we just made up: “Biggest Transformation of a Daryl.” When we first met him, he was scared of pretty much everything and didn’t know much about the world. Now, he likes getting up early to go on a hike, lounging around, and showing off his impressive “woof!”
