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.

Sweet, snuggly, and spunky, Bluebell loves everyone she meets. Get ready for a spa-like experience when you meet Bluebell--one of her favorite activities is giving her foster parents a long licking to show her appreciation!

Bingo is our resident ridiculously cute puppy. At 6 months old, he loves to energetically zoom and play, but also enjoys snuggling with his foster parents and lounging at their feet. His foster parents describe him as vivacious, curious, and adorable! Bingo enjoys other dogs, cats, and people, and will make a great companion as he grows with his future family.

Introducing Genevieve! This sweet girl is making huge strides gaining confidence in her foster home and is ready to find a forever family to continue her journey! Genevieve loves chilling in her crate with her bone, and is learning the finer points of enjoying home life from her canine foster brother.

Meet Geo! No, seriously--come over and say hi! This happy meatball loves making new friends and would love to make your acquaintance. His bouncy, wiggly greeting style will make you feel like the most important person in the world.

Liana joined us at the end of the NKLA Super Adoption weekend from the North Central shelter. This friendly girl loves to socialize with everyone she meets. Liana will happily join you on any activity, from your neighborhood coffee run to a day on the sofa binge watching your favorite shows together.

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.

Iona joined us from the South LA shelter and has been making best friends everywhere she’s gone since. We love her laid back, positive attitude. Her tail starts going at the smallest bit of attention--just say, “Hey, Iona!” and you’ll hear a happy thump, thump, thump.

Sarah joined us from the Carson shelter during the NKLA Super Adoption weekend. Though she’s still young, Sarah impressed us with her calm attitude toward the busy weekend, and spent most of her time getting loved on by volunteers. Once she’s at home, Sarah will show off her puppyish side and wants to have lots of fun! We think this sweet girl could go to a home with or without dogs.

Mocha joined us from the North Central shelter and has been busy relaxing at her foster home. Mocha enjoys hanging out with her canine foster siblings, and is happy to calmly take in the sights and sounds with them in the yard on a quiet afternoon. Mocha went on her first pack hike recently and walked nicely on leash with her new volunteer friends.

Sweet, happy Kami joined us from the North Central shelter at the end of the NKLA Super Adoption weekend. While at the shelter, Kami stayed busy building her resume in the K9 Youth Alliance training program. Her youth trainer said she’s a very calm, sweet, gentle girl and knows all the basics: Sit, down, rest, touch, focus, park, and roll. Kami enjoys her food and treats, and is very attentive to her handler, so she’d love to keep learning tricks with you!
