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 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.

According to Balue, everyone already loves him. This sweet, silly, spunky guy is quick to make friends with new people and dogs, all with his patented butt wiggle and tail wag. No matter what activity you have lined up for the day, Balue will make it fun. He’s happy to hop in the car to run errands, head out for a walk or hike, play with his canine foster brother, or entertain himself with a toy.

If you’ve never been kissed by a dog with an underbite, Jett is ready to rock your world. Jett’s an easy going, polite guy, but he takes his smooching seriously and will make sure you know you’re loved every day. When he’s not doling out kisses, Jett enjoys his neighborhood strolls--made even more enjoyable by the fact that he’s great on leash!

We weren't sure how to write this bio--Mr. Toad defies description. His face: Ridiculous. His love of attention from anyone he sees: Off the charts. The snorts he makes while he does his neighborhood rounds: Unbelievable. Oh yeah, and he’s friends with a tortoise. Who does that? Mr. Toad does.

TJ’s too shy to brag about himself, but we aren’t! He’s the king of the kitties, he’s an ace on leash, and he’s sweet as can be. TJ’s an all around laid back guy, and while he likes to play things close to the chest, we’re already getting hints he might be a secret goofball.

Carter joined our program from the East Valley shelter during our fire relief efforts. To answer everyone’s question: Yes, his muzzle is as soft as it looks. One smooch and you’ll be hooked! This sweet, smushy boy has been spending his time learning more about the world while in his foster homes.

Liberty joined us from the South LA shelter before the 4th of July, earning her patriotic name! Liberty is super sweet and loves to get kisses and rubs from volunteers after her walks. Liberty enjoys checking out the neighborhood on her walks and has been a pleasure on leash.

Sweet Nena is ready to find her forever family. Nena loves all people from big to small--she loves her kid friends just as much as she does adults. Nena walks nicely on leash, knows “sit,” and has great house manners. She’s the perfect addition to any family!

If you’ve been looking for a happy companion who knows the ways of the world, Butters is your girl. Butters just wants to be by your side, whether you’re out in the yard or getting work done at the computer. Butters has a wonderful mix of silly, spunky spurts and chill, relaxed vibes.

Sweet supermodel Elle is ready to find her forever family! Elle is looking for new human besties that will continue giving her positive experiences as she makes her way around the city. She’s been loving all of the fun training adventures she’s having at her foster home, including going on pack hikes and attending Dog Man’s Sunday classes.

Frodo and Hildie having been stealing volunteers’ hearts ever since they joined our program from the South LA shelter, and it’s easy to see why! These two are sweet, snuggly, and easy going--and watching them do their synchronized shuffle-trot down the sidewalk is a sight to behold. Frodo and Hildie are a bonded pair, and as such, these besties are looking for a home that will take them as a package deal.
