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.

Jordan is a dog that make life better in every way, says her foster mom. Watching her tail wag as she bops between her human and canine friends, we can’t help but agree--this girl has such a joyous spirit that you can’t help but catch some of it being around her.

Hello down there, Small Fry! This sweet, tiny guy has a quiet confidence about him as he takes in the world around him. That, plus his curiously small “pit bull” frame make him a sight to behold!

Helen’s been pretty busy recently raising her four puppies--but now that they’re out of the house, she’s ready to focus on herself and get adopted! Helen loves people and is a happy, happy girl. Whether you need a best friend, home office assistant, or garden helper, Helen will be quick to accept her new duties. Her one request is that you keep a few toys around--she was known to steal her puppies’ toys for herself for a little fun!

Whatever you’re doing or wherever you are, Chunk is just happy to be along for the ride. This happy, easily entertained boy has been winning over everyone he meets. Every new person is a friend that might give him head scratches and snuggles in exchange for some perfectly slobbery kisses.

When you meet Danny Boy, you’ll realize why all our volunteers have instantly fallen in love. He’s sweet and people-oriented, but also enjoys a good play session with other dogs. He carries himself with such an easy-breeziness that we’re all trying to figure out how to catch a little bit of his magic. Danny Boy knows his commands and has lived in a home with kids before, so he’s ready to join your family and bring his charm home to you.

Meet introvert Maeve! She’s a careful observer of the world, who feels most at home on her dog bed taking in the sights and sounds around her. We would be surprised if she’s writing the next Great American Novel. When she’s not busy taking notes on the daily goings-on, Maeve loves to play with her best friend, foster dog Jelina.

According to Balue, everyone already loves him. This sweet, silly, spunky guy is quick to make friends with new people and dogs, all with his patented butt wiggle and tail wag. No matter what activity you have lined up for the day, Balue will make it fun. He’s happy to hop in the car to run errands, head out for a walk or hike, play with his canine foster brother, or entertain himself with a toy.

There are two sides to Jelina: The shy, reserved girl you might see when you first meet her, and the wiggly, happy, playful pup she becomes as soon as she settles in at home. This girl is full of personality and will be happy to show it off when you take her home!

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!”

Carter joined our program from the East Valley shelter during our fire relief efforts. To answer everyone’s question: Yes, his muzzle is as soft as it looks. One smooch and you’ll be hooked! This sweet, smushy boy has been spending his time learning more about the world while in his foster homes.
