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 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.

Saint is a big teddy bear looking for a family who can provide lots of love and support. Saint is a volunteer favorite with his mushy personality, wiggly butt, and high IQ (this guy is smart, and loves to show off his signature “paw” move!).

It’s always Bikini season in Los Angeles! This sweet little lady joined us from the North Central shelter and quickly became a volunteer favorite. She’s a snuggly cuddler and is ready to take the world by storm!

Crash is his name, and being a cannonball of fun is his game! Can we say it? He’s a goober, and if you’re looking for a fun-loving partner in crime, this is your guy. Crash is sweet as can be, and loves meeting new people.

Leo has a new lease on life and he’s ready to kick it off with his future family! This sweet boy originally joined us from the South LA shelter with suspected bladder cancer. Many tests and a surgery later, it was confirmed that Leo simply had some bladder stones and a mass that needed to be removed--and since then, he’s been living large! In fact, his foster family says if Leo could pick a job, it would be as a tour guide on a double decker bus. He loves meeting new people and letting the wind blow through his ears as he takes in the scenery!

Pumpkin is an XL velvety girl who knows her stuff and is ready to fit right into your home. Pumpkin received 6 weeks of training at Lancaster State Prison courtesy of our friends at Paws For Life k9. Her trainers had this to say about her: "Pumpkin is extremely intelligent and learns quickly. To say she loves affection would be understated. She is a total LOVE BUG."

Pebbles is a sophisticated snuggle buddy and she’s ready to make your acquaintance--preferably on a comfy couch! Her foster family describes Pebbles as a “precious gem” and it’s no surprise why--this low energy gal makes every day lovely with her presence.

You might say Peaky’s a bit of a sophisticate. She’d rather spend the day sitting around with her close friends discussing wine tasting notes than engaging in horseplay and shenanigans. Who can blame her for enjoying the finer things in life? Soft blankets and zen vibes are totally Peaky’s style.

Belly rubs, snuggles, walks, hikes, and trips to the coffee shop--they’re all on Lilly V’s to do list! Lilly V is an affectionate girl who loves her family. As a young dog, Lilly V loves to have fun, but also enjoys the finer points of relaxing--in fact, she did great on an outing to a cafe with her foster mom.

If you believe that ball is life and things that are derpier are just better, might we introduce you to Arby? Arby joined us by way of Dogs Playing For Life’s National Canine Center, where he underwent extensive training--in fact, he was almost an explosives detection dog, but a hip surgery held him back from going to work!

Mama: An accomplished snuggler, a keen adventure trotter, an ice cream enthusiast, a toy hoarder to the max. She’s a whirling dervish of 100% delight--she is who she is. Mama joined us as part of a long journey that began in Canada, where she was confiscated as part of a dog fighting bust. After a several years long battle for the dogs to be released to rescue, Mama made her way to the Dogs Playing For Life National Canine Center in Florida for a chance to have a brighter future.
