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.

It’s no wonder why Puma becomes an instant favorite of anyone he spends time with--once you sit in the yard with him and feel him gently melt into you, he’ll be on your list of favorites, too! Though his face may often look serious, we think his head is full of the thoughts of a young poet. He often enjoys sitting right on your feet while he considers his daily musings.

Catrina is a sweet, soft, snuggly girl who’s ready to fit right into your family. Good house manners? Check. Good leash manners? Check. Enjoys a good nap? Check! Catrina will happily join you for whatever the day has in store, whether it’s lounging around the house or checking out all the latest smells of the neighborhood.

Sweet, gentle Lonnie loves long walks, romping around the yard, and peanut butter Kongs! Her ears tell you what she’s thinking as she considers all the sights and sounds of the world. Her fosters say Lonnie is crate and house trained and warms up very quickly to new people after she realizes there’s no need to be shy!

Roz is ready to join you for whatever life has in store. When she’s up, she’s up, happily going for walks and playing with her people. And when it’s time to relax, Roz can be found working on her kong or bone, or just having a good snore in her crate to recharge.

May is a fun loving girl who loves people, playing, and dog friends! This sweet girl joined our program after we met her during recent fire relief efforts at the West LA shelter. Though she may be a little scruffier than our typical “pit bull,” her lovely demeanor had us hooked--once you meet her and see her silly “oops, my lip’s caught on my tooth” smile, we think you’ll understand.

Chiclet is the ultimate sidekick, ready to join you for whatever life has in store! Her foster says she’s incredibly easy going, low energy, loving, and very well behaved! She loves cats and other dogs too! Chiclet mostly enjoys casually mingling with other dogs, but watch out! Every now and then she’ll get a serious case of the zoomies that might just be the cutest thing ever.

Have you ever seen a dog be so happy to see you that their whole body wags? That’s Minerva! Minerva loves, loves, LOVES people. You’ll get to see her signature full body wag when she lights up, happy as can be to make a new friend.

Anne is a hilarious, eager to please, leaping, frolicking, good girl! Anne attends ACPB Academy and Dog Man training classes with volunteers, and she’s been impressing us left and right with how nicely she works with her handler! She’ll be excited to keep training with you as she takes on her new neighborhood and home life.

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!

Spend one moment with Goldfish and you’ll fall in love with his goofy, floppy puppy ways. This young lad is charming as can be, and has been busy winning over volunteers. He’s tons of fun, and equally sweet and endearing. And he’s great with dogs, too! Goldfish loves coming out to playgroups, where he easily fits in with many types of dogs. Now he’s just waiting for his future family to come along!
