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.

Livvy loves life! She got a glowing review from her foster family, who describe her as “wonderful”! They also say she’s confident and funny--what’s not to love about that? Livvy enjoys hanging out in her crate with a good bone, but also likes to enjoy her house time with people. Livvy has enjoyed living with another dog in her foster home, and we think she’d be equally happy in a home with or without other dogs.

Beignet has been spreading her sugar to everyone she meets. About 30 seconds after meeting her, you’ll see why she’s become a volunteer favorite. This sweet girl loves her people and could spend all day getting belly rubs and cuddling. At the moment, we think Beignet would prefer to be your one and only dog--don’t worry, she can handle the attention!

With his giant grin, roly-poly body, and happy trot, Stuffin is a sight to behold! We fell in love with this guy at the South LA shelter and knew we needed him and silly, happy ways in our lives, ASAP! We have a feeling his future adopter is going to have a lot of laughs in their life because of him and might become the most popular neighbor on the block.

Excitement, intrigue, drama--Hollywood lives up to her namesake city all day, every day! This fun loving, larger than life girl may be 7 but still has a youthful outlook on life that will make your life feel like you just adopted a true celebrity. Hollywood is extremely people oriented--how else are you going to get anywhere in this business?

Meet introvert Maeve! She’s a careful observer of the world, who feels most at home on her dog bed taking in the sights and sounds around her. We would be surprised if she’s writing the next Great American Novel. When she’s not busy taking notes on the daily goings-on, Maeve loves to play with her best friend, foster dog Jelina.

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!”

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.

Sarah joined us from the Carson shelter during the NKLA Super Adoption weekend. Though she’s still young, Sarah impressed us with her calm attitude toward the busy weekend, and spent most of her time getting loved on by volunteers. Once she’s at home, Sarah will show off her puppyish side and wants to have lots of fun! We think this sweet girl could go to a home with or without dogs.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the Italian countryside, listening to truffle-hunting pigs finding decadent toppings for your dinner. Open them, and reality is even better: It’s Lucille, doing her signature snort-and-waddle around the yard. This cute and silly girl joined us from the South LA shelter and is ready to win over her forever family with her hilarious noises and sweet smile.

Meet Nemo... He is the cutest little fish around! He is an affectionate, goofy guy who loves hanging out with his people. As much as he likes to snuggle and give kisses, Nemo likes to play. He loves goofing around with other dogs that have a rough and tumble play-style too.
