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.

With his gorgeous eyes and lovebug tendencies, Chadwick knows how to make an impression. Chadwick loves lounging around and trying to sneak in as many cuddles as he can with his people. “I called him my little shadow,” his temporary foster said, because he is happiest just being in the same room as you! In his foster home, he spends most of his time relaxing, but is happy to go on a stroll or have a quick spurt of play. So far, he’s taken on the LA Historic Park and many neighborhood walks.

Everything’s better with Cheddar! As his name suggests, this boy is pure cheesy goodness--he’s the perfect addition to practically anything. He’s taking in all the sights and sounds of the world--his foster says that every time they go out for a walk, he looks at her as if to ask, “Am I doing this right?” All he wants is to know he’s “dogging” the right way!

Chimichanga is a heartwarming, big baby wrapped up in a stubby legged, beefy package. His foster says “he absolutely loves life” and is always happy to waddle over for attention and booty pats that anyone has to offer. His signature move is getting his ears rubbed, then dropping to the ground and rolling over for a full massage. His other favorite activity is engaging in the culinary arts. He’s never met a snack he didn’t like.

Cute as a button and as sweet as can be, Lydia is ready to wiggle her way into your heart. Lydia’s favorite thing might just be, well...everything! Neighborhood walks, hikes, and even running are all up her alley. Playdates with other dogs? Yep, Lydia is all in! Meeting new people? Lydia’s on board.

Described by her foster as the perfect wingwoman for any adventure, Raindrop is equal parts dainty and adventurous and she’ll be happy doing pretty much anything as long as it’s with you. She quickly warms up to show off her cuddly side, and in her foster home she enjoys sitting with her foster mom getting loved on as well as playing with stuffies and cozying up on plush blankets and pillows.

Ferdinand might seem like the shy, soulful type at first--and sure, he’s no stranger to cracking open his journal to write a quick poem. But when you see him throw a 360 degree joyful spinny zoom, you’ll be hooked on all the sides of Ferdie. Equal sides sensitive, silly, and snuggly, Ferdinand is the type to wiggle his way right into your heart.

If you’re looking for a real life teddy bear in senior dog form, Sir Scooby is your guy. 13 years young, Sir Scooby has had a lifetime to cultivate his stellar personality. He oozes with sweetness, enjoys everyone he meets, and makes himself right at home to take naps next to you, sunbathe in the yard, and never let a scrap of food go uneaten.

Teeny tripod TikTok is ready to become a sensation with his future family. This calm, sweet boy has been a hit in his foster home, making a name for himself as an easy keeper who loves his crate, is a nice walking buddy, and warms up quickly to new friends at the house.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the Italian countryside, listening to truffle-hunting pigs finding decadent toppings for your dinner. Open them, and reality is even better: It’s Lucille, doing her signature snort-and-waddle around the yard. This cute and silly girl joined us from the South LA shelter and is ready to win over her forever family with her hilarious noises and sweet smile.

The name “Bug” might be short for “waterbug,” because the first thing this fun-loving boy does when he hits the play yard is jump in the pool and dunk his whole head underwater! Beach lovers and stream-crossers may want to keep Bug at the top of their lists for future best friends, because Bug will never say no to a day where getting wet is guaranteed!
