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.

Get to know Magico, and you’ll be rewarded with what his foster mom describes as a “really cute, huggable, dorky best friend.” This boy is big enough to easily contain multitudes, including being a fantastic pal to dogs, an eager to please companion, a goofy overgrown puppy, and, well, a bit of a big baby who’s still learning about the world. He’s been doing fantastically well in his foster home with the help of yummy snacks, some canine friends, and structured introductions to new people, who then become part of Magico’s Magic Friendship Club.

Every day is a great day in Junie’s book! In the morning, she bounces out of her crate and to the front door, eagerly awaiting her morning walk. Once you’re home, she’s even happier, because that means the snuggles are about to begin! This girl is a cuddle queen, and will happily take the place of that weighted blanket you've been eyeing.

Colette’s foster mom sums it up best when she said, “Colette is genuinely the sweetest, most relaxed, sleepiest dog I have ever met!” She loves sleeping and cuddling up next to you on the couch (or floor, or bed, or wherever you are) and just being around her human friends. She also loves long car rides and will fall asleep in the backseat like a pro. She is a great errand-helper and is just happy to be there for the ride.

Like her namesake, Calamity Jane is indeed a daredevil with a heart of gold--and she’s ready for a life of equal parts adventure and snuggles with her future family. Calamity Jane joined our program after suffering a gunshot wound--she refuses to tell the story behind it, but we’re sure it’s a good one. Now that she’s recovered, she’s turned her attention to other pursuits. Car rides, getting her steps in, belly rubs, bully sticks, and couch lounging are all up her alley!

Queen of Pillows and Appreciator of Stuffies Bernadette is just about the biggest sweetheart anyone could meet. Her foster parents say, “We are constantly in awe of just how lovable she is.” With her calm, loving demeanor, Bernadette is an instant hit with new friends. If they stick around, she may even do her signature dramatic flop to the floor and demand belly rubs by pawing the air with her little feet.

All Butterbear needs is a cozy, quiet home with other dogs and patient people who are ready for a rewarding journey and some epic stroller rides. Butterbear hasn’t let the past stop her from making the most of every day--she’s looking for a squad to help her live out her “onward and upward” mantra!

Anna may be pint-sized, but she’s packed full of personality and pizazz to fill your days with snuggles and fun! If you like your dogs filled to the brim with opinions, Anna is your girl. For example, you probably need to take a break from working right now--and Anna will be right there to drop her toy in your lap to remind you! Got snacks? Anna’s opinion is she should have some, too! Then snuggles and naps, then play time, then repeat. Equal parts silly, sweet, and sassy, Anna will bring you all the love and entertainment you could ever need.

For those looking for an XXXL lap dog, your search stops here! Massimo will be pleased to make your acquaintance. This sweet, playful, goofy guy has the heart of a puppy and the body of an NFL star, and will keep you laughing with his long-strided frolics and prancing.

Have you ever wondered if there is more to life other than being really, really ridiculously good looking? It’s a question that runs through Echo’s mind every day. Echo lives the male model lifestyle to the fullest--he’s dashingly handsome, a total rascal, and a bit of a whirlwind. He’s looking for someone who loves that he is a complete character and is ready to come along for the Echo Experience.

Danny is always happy to see you and always down for a cuddle--and when you get excited about something, he will, too. He’s just that kind of guy: a best friend, a personal cheerleader, and always ready to dole out a giant kiss when you tell him “I love you!” When you drive around town, you’ll often find his head on your shoulder, with an occasional kiss snuck in for good measure. Danny is happiest when it’s just him and his favorite people around, no distractions. He’s a big softie at heart.
