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, easy going, snuggly Button is ready to enjoy a life of chill vibes with his future adopter. Button is a relaxed, lower energy dude and enjoys casual strolls in the neighborhood and luxurious dog bed snoozes. He’s a great buddy for lounging around the house watching TV, reading a book, or getting some work done. Whatever you’re up to, he’ll be happy to assist from a comfy surface nearby!

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.

Meatball is a classic dog-about-town. He loves heading out on his morning stroll to the local coffee shop with his foster mom, checking out all the different sights and sounds on the way. Then, back at home he likes to spend the day hanging out, getting chest scratches, and watching TV.

Have you been looking for a lady of leisure to invite into your life? Minnow’s your girl. When she’s not enjoying a good chew on her bone, this couch queen loves to relax and get belly rubs. Her foster dad describes her as “sweet as pie” and has been enjoying the symphony of grunts and snores she’s brought to the household.

Sweet and friendly Melodie is ready to find her future family. Melodie has a nice flexible energy and is happy to lounge around the house or head out for a walk in the neighborhood. But her favorite activity of all time is getting belly rubs. She makes instant friends with everyone she meets, big or small, if they’re willing to have a major petting-fest with her.

Duke may have perma-puppy dog eyes, but we think he’s pretty happy these days! When he joined our program, he was a reserved gentleman who was figuring out his new life. Now that he’s had some time to settle in, he likes to show off his eager grin and happy tail wag when he realizes his favorite people are home.

Hilary joined us with her sister Haylie from the South LA shelter. These sweet, fun girls recovered from Parvo and are ready to find their future families! We think Hilary would be a great addition to any type of home with or without other animals.

Weezie is an all around chill gal who’s ready to enjoy life by your side. In fact, her foster family says her ideal job would be a relaxation coach--but we’re sure she’d give you a family discount! This mellow girl enjoys car rides, short strolls around the neighborhood, and lounging in the house. Along the way, she’s happy to receive pets from anyone she meets. Getting pets and scratches is one of her favorite activities.When she’s not busy socializing, Weezie enjoys a nice bone or bully stick.

Patty’s always ready to extend her paw in greeting to make another new friend. In fact, if it were up to her, she’d spend her whole day doling out gentle kisses and leaning her head against you for pets. There’s no such thing as a stranger to Patty--just a friend she hasn’t met yet.

Redford will make you feel like the most special person in the world, every day. This boy falls hard and fast for his people--just ask his foster mom, who gets an excited, smiling greeting from Redford every day when she comes home from work.
