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.

With her adorable slightly-crossed eyes, her inviting "scratch me!" spot on the base of her tail, and her always smiling face, it’s no wonder that Ladybird is a volunteer favorite at our program. Now she’s ready to become your favorite and bring her unwavering positive attitude to her future family. If we know one thing about Ladybird, she'll make every day she's with you into the happiest day.

There are two sides to Jelina: The shy, reserved girl you might see when you first meet her, and the wiggly, happy, playful pup she becomes as soon as she settles in at home. This girl is full of personality and will be happy to show it off when you take her home!

Weezie is an all around chill gal who’s ready to enjoy life by your side. In fact, her foster family says her ideal job would be a relaxation coach--but we’re sure she’d give you a family discount! This mellow girl enjoys car rides, short strolls around the neighborhood, and lounging in the house. Along the way, she’s happy to receive pets from anyone she meets. Getting pets and scratches is one of her favorite activities.When she’s not busy socializing, Weezie enjoys a nice bone or bully stick.

When we asked Remy’s foster mom to describe her, she said, “Curious, gentle, cuddly, lazy yet fun-loving, and sweet.” Remy might come across as a little shy at first, but bring her home and you’ll soon see all those descriptions come to life in one amazing dog!

Meet Daryl, the absolute shoe-in for the award we just made up: “Biggest Transformation of a Daryl.” When we first met him, he was scared of pretty much everything and didn’t know much about the world. Now, he likes getting up early to go on a hike, lounging around, and showing off his impressive “woof!”

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.

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.

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!

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.

Introducing Genevieve! This sweet girl is making huge strides gaining confidence in her foster home and is ready to find a forever family to continue her journey! Genevieve loves chilling in her crate with her bone, and is learning the finer points of enjoying home life from her canine foster brother.
