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.

Meet Betsy! Betsy joined our program during the busy 4th of July period from the South LA shelter. She spent her first official day as a foster dog getting a long walk, photos, and a bath from volunteers, and she took it all in stride. In her foster home, Betsy is calm and well-behaved in the house. When she got the coveted invite onto the luxurious comfy chair, she snuggled up and enjoyed it!

With his freckly coat and multi-colored eyes, Bayou is sure to draw you in--and then he’ll make you fall in love with his great personality. Bayou is friendly with people and enjoys other dogs. We think this stunning boy would be happy to live in a home with or without other canine friends.

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.

Handsome Boris joined us from the East Valley shelter. Boris loves going on walks around the neighborhood to see what’s new. In fact, his foster describes him as fairly low energy and low maintenance with a relaxed, calm personality. He loves affection as much as he loves his treats, and will happily accept non stop pets and love if you have the time!

Rocky is an easy-going, happy guy who’s ready for whatever adventures you have planned! Rocky loves to greet you with a big tail wag and then eagerly sit and wait for you to pet him. Rocky has a lot of skills under his belt and is well-trained and well-behaved.

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.

Her foster parents describe her as “spectacular”--meet Fawn! Give Fawn a moment and she’ll come right out of her shell--at which point we hope you’re ready to dole out a lot of smooches and pets. She’ll be asking for them! Fawn sits nicely to get her leash on when it’s time to go for a walk (one of her favorite activities).

Wiggles joined us from the East Valley shelter with a condition called cherry eye. She had a successful surgery and recovery, and now she’s ready to graduate from foster dog extraordinaire to happy, wiggly, goofy adopted dog! There’s pretty much nothing Wiggles doesn’t like. Wiggles loves people of all ages and loves to play with other dogs, including her canine foster sister who’s been showing her the ropes.

Milkshake has been busy making all of our volunteers swoon since she joined our program from the East Valley shelter. Now she’s ready for her very own forever family to admire her all day! Milkshake is super people-oriented and enjoys hanging out with her fans and getting belly rubs and butt scratches. She’s also happy to chill in her crate with her bone and her peanut butter kong.

Meet Miller! This happy boy is ready to find his forever home. Miller is an all-around good boy mixed with the perfect amount of goofy, playful silliness. He’s super attentive and loves to show off his skills (Sit and Down are at the top of his resume). He enjoys trotting around the neighborhood and is a pleasure to walk on leash.
