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.

If you’ve spent some time with a senior dog, you probably know that there’s something extra special about these older pups. “Extra special” certainly describes Gordy. He’s gentle, sweet, friendly, and just...well...wonderful!

Social butterfly Delancey is ready to hit the town with you! Delancey’s never met a stranger and is happy to get belly rubs from anyone who’s offering. She’s always ready for an adventure, whether it’s a hike or a casual stroll to the coffee shop. Then, when it’s time to relax at home, she’s ready to snuggle up in her crate or on the dog bed.

Meet Jaz! Jaz joined us from the West Valley shelter during our fire relief efforts. This sweet, happy girl is ready to find a home of her own. She’s affectionate and loves to get attention from people. We think Jaz would prefer to be your solo dog buddy, though she could potentially go to a home with a well-matched dog with a slow introduction.

Sweet Mamie is ready to find her future family! Mamie loves people and is sweet and calm at home. She’d love to help you get your garden going, or spend all day lounging and reading your favorite books. Want to stroll around the neighborhood? Mamie’s in! She enjoys a casual jaunt and loves to take in all the new smells.

Don’t let his perma-pout fool you--Thatcher is a happy, goofy dude, and he’s ready to keep you laughing! Thatcher loves bouncing around the yard and getting pets from every volunteer he meets. Thatcher would love to trot around town with you or hit the trails for a hike, but once he’s home on his own dog bed, he’ll be happy to curl up and enjoy a bone while you chill at home, too.

With her adorable slightly-crossed eyes and her always smiling face, it’s no wonder that Ladybird is a volunteer favorite at our program. Now she’s ready to become your favorite and bring her unwavering positive attitude to her future family. If we know one thing about Ladybird, she'll make every day she's with you into the happiest day.

Looking for a best friend? A confidant who’s always ready to hear all about your day, no judgment? An eager Netflix binging buddy who won’t care if you have to rewind 18 times because you were texting? Bree is your gal. This homebody loves her close friends and thrives on structure so that she feels safe and secure. She’s always ready to greet you with her patented wiggles and snuggle up for some love.

California golden boy coming through! Perry has the ultimate sunny disposition and he’s ready to spread it to his future family. We met Perry at the West Valley shelter and immediately fell in love with his silly, playful gallops around the play yard and his eagerness to sidle up for a snuggle.

Smelling the roses, enjoying nature, and curling up in his cozy crate are a few of Willie’s favorite things, and he’d love to share them with you. This sweet, shy boy joined us from the South LA shelter and has been busy experiencing all the new sights and sounds of his foster home.

Teeny tiny Layla is ready to join your family! This sweet girl caught our eye at the South LA shelter during playgroups and wiggled her way right into our program. Layla can be shy at first, but give her time to open up and you’ll find a silly, happy girl waiting for you! Layla has done well in our playgroups with other dogs, and has lived in foster homes with cats--she’s ready to join your pack, but could also be your one and only.
