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.

Spend one moment with Goldfish and you’ll fall in love with his goofy, floppy puppy ways. This young lad is charming as can be, and has been busy winning over volunteers. He’s tons of fun, and equally sweet and endearing. And he’s great with dogs, too! Goldfish loves coming out to playgroups, where he easily fits in with many types of dogs. Now he’s just waiting for his future family to come along!

Howdy, Cowgirl! This wiggly (seriously, it’s a full body wiggle) girl has been winning hearts since she stepped in the building--now it’s time for her to win yours! She’s 1 year old but has a puppy-like spirit with her constant waggle and sweet personality. Her foster mom says she likes to check in during her walks if she’s not sure what to do, and loves affection and toys!

Every morning is great when it starts with a walk with Starling. Her nice leash manners and breezy gait are so enchanting you could spend your whole morning strolling! Starling joined us from the South LA shelter, and has made quick work of settling in as an Angel City foster. Between getting to know the volunteers and heading out to playgroups, she keeps her schedule busy--but always makes time for a nice nap in her crate.

Sharing breakfast, relaxing around the house, walks around the neighborhood, and plenty of kisses all sound good to Bobbie--and she’ll do it all on 3 legs! This sweet girl has been adjusting well to her new life after being hit by a car. Now, all she needs to worry about is when her next snuggle session is with volunteers!

Sweet Jorja is ready to make all of your days happy. This friendly, wiggly girl loves nothing more than to be with people, whether it’s in the form of snuggles at home or a walk around town saying hi to everyone she meets. Her happy smile is sure to win you over--in fact, it might be contagious!

Tripod Tango is ready to live it up on three legs with you! His foster parents rave about him, saying, “Walking him is a surefire way to meet new people and feel good about life.”

If you like snuggle time on the couch, relaxing around the house, and having a steadfast kitchen assistant, Fifi would like to submit her resume to your household! This sweet, gentle girl joined our program from the South LA shelter and she’s made herself right at home!

As his namesake suggests, Cannoli is a treat who never fails to satisfy your need for sweetness! This big, smushy boy is never in a hurry, but always enjoys what’s on the agenda. Whether it’s head scratches, snuggling, meeting new people, beebopping around the neighborhood, or assisting in the kitchen, Cannoli will happily make his way from activity to activity.

“To make a long story short, she’s amazing.” That’s what one volunteer had to say after spending a day with the one and only Millie! Millie is an accomplished couch snuggler, TV binger, bed napper, belly rub enthusiast--and as much love as you can dish out, she’ll give it right back to you! In between enjoying her many lovefests, Millie also has a curious and playful side to her. She’s always ready to smell the roses along her short neighborhood strolls.

Petal has perfected her prance so that anyone who sees her has to stop and say hi. This girl loves her outings around town just as much as she likes a snuggle session at home. Her foster family can’t stop raving about how great and fun she is--and once you see her happily trotting down the sidewalk for her next activity, we think you’ll agree!
