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.

Mama Mousekewitz’s foster family says if she could have a job, “she’d probably own her own bakery or coffee shop so she could gab with all the locals.” She quite enjoys people and loves to spend her time relaxing with her foster family. But she’s also happy to pop into her crate for a nap, or curl up on her dog bed (or the human bed, shh) when you need to get some work done. When you’re ready she’s happy to hit the streets for a fun walk, where she’ll show off her pleasant leash skills!

For those looking for an XXXL lap dog, your search stops here! Massimo will be pleased to make your acquaintance. This sweet, playful, goofy guy has the heart of a puppy and the body of an NFL star, and will keep you laughing with his long-strided frolics and prancing.

All Butterbear needs is a cozy, quiet home with other dogs and patient people who are ready for a rewarding journey and some epic stroller rides. Butterbear hasn’t let the past stop her from making the most of every day--she’s looking for a squad to help her live out her “onward and upward” mantra!

Bulldog lovers, at attention! Norbert would love to make your acquaintance. Various members of our team have pontificated that in a past life, Norbert might have been a caring grandpa, a retired small town sheriff, or a used car salesman...and we couldn’t love him more!

Anna may be pint-sized, but she’s packed full of personality and pizazz to fill your days with snuggles and fun! If you like your dogs filled to the brim with opinions, Anna is your girl. For example, you probably need to take a break from working right now--and Anna will be right there to drop her toy in your lap to remind you! Got snacks? Anna’s opinion is she should have some, too! Then snuggles and naps, then play time, then repeat. Equal parts silly, sweet, and sassy, Anna will bring you all the love and entertainment you could ever need.

Have you ever wondered if there is more to life other than being really, really ridiculously good looking? It’s a question that runs through Echo’s mind every day. Echo lives the male model lifestyle to the fullest--he’s dashingly handsome, a total rascal, and a bit of a whirlwind. He’s looking for someone who loves that he is a complete character and is ready to come along for the Echo Experience.

Danny is always happy to see you and always down for a cuddle--and when you get excited about something, he will, too. He’s just that kind of guy: a best friend, a personal cheerleader, and always ready to dole out a giant kiss when you tell him “I love you!” When you drive around town, you’ll often find his head on your shoulder, with an occasional kiss snuck in for good measure. Danny is happiest when it’s just him and his favorite people around, no distractions. He’s a big softie at heart.

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. Fuzzy Nelson wins over everyone he meets with his elfish grin, his pointy ears, and his captivating gaze.

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.
