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 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.

Active, eager, loving Selena is ready to become a member of the fam! As long as Selena’s included, she’s happy. Every morning when you wake up, you’ll be greeted by the sight of Selena’s wiggling booty dance as she makes her excitement over your presence known. Her energy is contagious--it’s hard not to have a great day with a friend like Selena by your side! Walks, hikes, or runs would all happily be on her agenda for the day, as well as games of fetch and other fun enriching activities.

Happy-go-lucky Mother Superior is ready to join forces for a life of fun, fun, fun! This leggy, athletic gal loves to hit the town for walks, head out for a hike, or simply entertain herself by frolicking in the back yard with a choice toy. If you’re looking for a fun, happy buddy for your adventures, and a loving companion for when it’s time to chill, Mother is your girl. Her foster parents say, “Mother Superior likes everything! She is full of nonstop wiggles.” Their favorite thing about her? “How happy she is!”

Like her namesake, Calamity Jane is indeed a daredevil with a heart of gold--and she’s ready for a life of equal parts adventure and snuggles with her future family. Calamity Jane joined our program after suffering a gunshot wound--she refuses to tell the story behind it, but we’re sure it’s a good one. Now that she’s recovered, she’s turned her attention to other pursuits. Car rides, getting her steps in, belly rubs, bully sticks, and couch lounging are all up her alley!

Queen of Pillows and Appreciator of Stuffies Bernadette is just about the biggest sweetheart anyone could meet. Her foster parents say, “We are constantly in awe of just how lovable she is.” With her calm, loving demeanor, Bernadette is an instant hit with new friends. If they stick around, she may even do her signature dramatic flop to the floor and demand belly rubs by pawing the air with her little feet.

Speckled smartypants coming through! Happy-go-lucky Bandicoot is eager to please and loves to be loved, and has made a name for himself as a volunteer and foster favorite. This mushy boy enjoys snuggling up and getting attention, but is also ready to be on his best behavior on walks (if you have some treats for his tricks, even better!). His eager trot will put a smile on your face. And he’s good for a laugh, too--his foster mom says, “My favorite thing about him is how funny he is when he goes to do something athletic and fails and slides out into a puddle on the floor.”

All Butterbear needs is a cozy, quiet home with other dogs and patient people who are ready for a rewarding journey and some epic stroller rides. Butterbear hasn’t let the past stop her from making the most of every day--she’s looking for a squad to help her live out her “onward and upward” mantra!

Anna may be pint-sized, but she’s packed full of personality and pizazz to fill your days with snuggles and fun! If you like your dogs filled to the brim with opinions, Anna is your girl. For example, you probably need to take a break from working right now--and Anna will be right there to drop her toy in your lap to remind you! Got snacks? Anna’s opinion is she should have some, too! Then snuggles and naps, then play time, then repeat. Equal parts silly, sweet, and sassy, Anna will bring you all the love and entertainment you could ever need.

Have you ever wondered if there is more to life other than being really, really ridiculously good looking? It’s a question that runs through Echo’s mind every day. Echo lives the male model lifestyle to the fullest--he’s dashingly handsome, a total rascal, and a bit of a whirlwind. He’s looking for someone who loves that he is a complete character and is ready to come along for the Echo Experience.

Danny is always happy to see you and always down for a cuddle--and when you get excited about something, he will, too. He’s just that kind of guy: a best friend, a personal cheerleader, and always ready to dole out a giant kiss when you tell him “I love you!” When you drive around town, you’ll often find his head on your shoulder, with an occasional kiss snuck in for good measure. Danny is happiest when it’s just him and his favorite people around, no distractions. He’s a big softie at heart.

Sunbeams, seasonal fruits, chairs for exactly 1 (her), and long walks on secluded beaches: these are a few of Peaky’s favorite things. She’s the perfect COVID companion--she strongly prefers 6 feet from strangers and likes to keep the houseguests to members of the pod. Shaking hands and kissing babies may not be her jam, but if you’re a Real One, Peaky’s happy to lounge the day away as your sophisticated sidekick. With time, she’ll start to dole out her patented Peaky Pecks (the teeniest kisses) and press herself next to you on the couch.
