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.

Looking for a slightly scruffy cutie to join your pack? Ewok is your guy! This happy, happy, wiggly puppy is sweet as can be. He loves spending his day playing with his foster siblings, including dogs and cats! He’s also becoming a “fetch” pro, and his foster mom reports he’s getting the hang of bringing back his toy for another round.

Looking to take home some inspiration? Meet Sputnik, our extra special pup with four legs and two wheels. We met Sputnik at the South LA shelter when he was a young puppy. He wasn't using his hind end, so we quickly brought him into our program and sent him off to the excellent folks at CARE, where he’s grown stronger by the day.

With a smile that lights up any room, Mary quickly becomes a favorite of anyone she meets. Mary can start off shy, but comes out of her shell quickly--and you’ll know you’re one of Mary’s favorites when you see her little tail nubbin wiggling at the speed of light!

A gentle giant with a calm demeanor, Sabina is ready to enjoy everything that the world has to offer her. Whether it’s a stroll through the neighborhood, chilling at the local coffee shop, or night in with the newest Netflix flick, Sabina will happily be right by your side.

Meet hippity hoppity Clutch! This silly boy loves to greet you by hopping around like a dainty jumping bean. He’s always thrilled to make new friends! Clutch keeps his foster family laughing every day with his goofiness, and they think he’s just about the sweetest dog they’ve ever met!

Super sweet Steffi is a belly rub lover who enjoys getting a good case of the sillies with her best human friends. We met this girl at the South LA shelter during Dogs Playing For Life playgroups and fell in love with her happy demeanor.

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!

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.
